With Mardi Gras set for next Tuesday, a bunch of floats for the parade have already been leaked. One of the floats was specifically made to honor LSU head coach Ed Orgeron, who led the program to its first national title since 2007.
This past season for LSU was incredible to say the least. Orgeron led the Tigers to wins over plenty of ranked programs, including dominant wins over Clemson and Oklahoma in this year’s College Football Playoff.
It’s only fitting that New Orleans honors Orgeron with a float on Mardi Gras. After all, the city held quite the party when LSU officially won the national championship back in January.
Mardi Gras will take place on Tuesday, February 25. People still have to wait a couple of days before the biggest celebration in Louisiana goes down, but for now they can enjoy looking at this image of Orgeron’s float.

What makes the float so epic is that Orgeron is holding a turkey with the Alabama logo on its stomach.
The float also features Orgeron’s catchphrase “Geaux Tigahs.”
Once Mardi Gras comes to an end in New Orleans, it’s back to business for LSU. It won’t be easy defending the national title, especially without Joe Burrow.
Are you a fan of this Orgeron-inspired float?
