Former LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron, who was relieved of his duties with the program two years removed from an undefeated national championship in 2019, told a funny story on the Dan Patrick Show of how he and Pete Carrol tried to recruit then-top talent Adrian Peterson to the USC Trojans.

“I asked Adrian, ‘What is the key to getting you here at USC?’” Orgeron said, according to 247Sports. “He says, ‘Coach, well, Bob Stoops, my dad is incarcerated and Bob Stoops went to see him.’ Well me and Pete Carroll tried to go get him and to go see him, but they wouldn’t let us see him. But, Adrian said, ‘Coach, my dad would be able to watch my games where he’s at if I go to Oklahoma.’ I tried to get the guy transferred to Los Angeles.”
