Tom Rinaldi may not be the voice of ESPN’s College GameDay now the he’s with Fox, but the seasoned storyteller found the words to narrate the hype video for LSU football.
In the theme of “redemption,” Rinaldi describes redemption as an arc that forges its own path.
“Redemption is the grace of God,” Rinaldi said. “It is the return home, it is the hope of spring and the promise of fall.”
“Redemption is a story — it begins with the rise and covers the fall, yet it ends with the recovery,” he said. “… Redemption is the rebirth and every day its one day closer.”
The Tigers will be working on their redemption season after going 5-5 last season.
LSU’s spring game kicks off at noon on Saturday and will be streamed live on SEC Network+ — it will the first look at the new-look Tigers that saw an overhaul of coaching changes this offseason, but head coach Ed Orgeron doesn’t want too much revealed during the scrimmage.
“We’re not going to do a lot of things to put on TV and obviously UCLA is going to be watching us so we don’t want to give up everything, but we do want to do enough things to let our players compete and have fun,” Orgeron said, per Geaux 247.
