It’s truly incredible how big of a part of the coronavirus fight Coach O has become. The national champion is pretty much the face of the battle in Louisiana.
You might think I’m kidding, but I’m 100% serious. He’s recorded a PSA, he’s briefed the press about the situation and he’s now on a billboard.

It’s such a smart idea for the government to use Coach O to help lead the fight and get the message out. It’s such a genius move.
Coach O is a god to the people of Louisiana. In terms of public perception, he’s substantially more important than the governor or any other public official, and it’s not even close.
While people might ignore warnings from the government, the good people of Louisiana won’t ignore Coach O. It’s just not going to happen.
If you weren’t already a huge fan of Orgeron, you should all be now. The man has gone above and beyond to help in the fight against coronavirus.
He’s a hell of a football coach, and he’s honestly turning into a hero off of it. Do what he says and we can all get through this.
