LSU football coach Ed Orgeron subtly slashed Ole Miss with a comment about the upcoming game.

During a Wednesday appearance on ESPN, Orgeon talked about the game against the Rebels on Saturday and referred to it as a “rivalry game for them.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Watch is full comments right at the beginning of the clip below.

For those of you who don’t know, Ole Miss famously dumped Orgeron as their coach several years back after he got off to a bad start with the Rebels.

Now, he’ll get the chance to go back to Oxford and smash them in front of the crowd that once upon a time drove him out of town.

The fact he took a subtle jab at them is no surprise.

There’s nothing worse than being told your rivalry doesn’t mean anything to the other side, which is exactly what Orgeron did in the clip above.

Saying it’s a “rivalry for them,” is a nice way of saying LSU couldn’t care less about the Rebels. This is the biggest game of the year of Ole Miss.

It’s just another random date on the calendar for the men in Baton Rouge.

You think the Tigers give a damn about what happens in Oxford? Hell no. They’re going to show up and show out.

I don’t say that as somebody who hates Ole Miss. I say that as somebody who loves Ole Miss. They’re great people down there, but they’re about to get obliterated.

The Tigers took down the Crimson Tide and now they’re going to murder Ole Miss. This one is going to get ugly. Keep up the energy, Coach O!
