Neal Brown’s Trojans Crash LSU’s Homecoming

Former UK offensive coordinator and Kentucky native Neal Brown led his Troy Trojans into Death Valley last night for LSU’s Homecoming, and despite a plethora of statistics that would’ve predicted otherwise, they pulled together a 24-21 win.

LSU entered Saturday’s contest against Troy 16-0 all-time against Sun Belt teams and winners of 49 consecutive non-conference home games – the nation’s longest streak that dated to 2000.

It left the game 16-1 and without a streak, falling 24-21, which won’t make things easy for coach Ed Orgeron.

“What a special night,” Troy coach Neal Brown said in a postgame, on-field interview with ESPN. “To come out on this stage and for our kids to compete for four quarters is really special.”

It’s also the Trojans’ second win against a Southeastern Conference school. They won 21-9 at Mississippi State in 2001.

Brown couldn’t contain himself in the postgame locker room.

But he wasn’t the only one.

That is weeping willow levels of shade, right there.

    i wonder if given time and personnel, neal would have given UK the offence we all thought when hired. this is why we have to give the coaches some leeway.

    I think Brown was wanting out because Stoops kept meddling with the offense and his play calling.
