Ed Orgeron preparing LSU for Mississippi State with cowbells
LSU will visit Mississippi State on Saturday, so Ed Orgeron is doing what he can to prepare his Tigers for the game. In fact, Orgeron says he has been simulating the cowbell sounds in practice all week to get his team ready for what it will sound like in Starkville.
Orgeron says #LSU has been playing cowbell noise "all week" in practice. O says he's getting tired of hearing them.

Orgeron: "I even played the cowbells in our team meeting. They said 'What's that.' I said, 'Yall going to hear them Saturday, boys.'" #LSU

Ringing cowbells has long been a tradition at Mississippi State, though the origins of the tradition are unknown, according to the school’s website. Only in recent years did the SEC set a rule known as the “cowbell compromise” that allows Bulldogs fans to bring a cowbell into the stadium for games.
Here’s video that shows what it sounds like with Mississippi State fans ringing the cowbell during a game:
