Ed Orgeron’s voice is quintessentially Cajun, a product of his deep Louisiana roots

Posted On Aug 14 2020 by

first_imgIn a season that has featured Heisman-winning quarterback Joe Burrow, the advent of a high-octane passing game under Steve Ensminger and Joe Brady, a ridiculous six wins over top-10 opponents and a chance at LSU’s first College Football Playoff championship, perhaps nothing sticks out more about this team than Orgeron’s gravelly, Cajun voice. It’s the most distinct voice in college football, one that has drawn everything from pure curiosity to ridicule to myriad impersonations.With that, here’s everything you need to know about Coach O’s voice: where it comes from, the many impressions it has produced and a few notable examples:MORE: How Orgeron became Louisiana’s favorite sonWhat happened to Ed Orgeron’s voice?Nothing. It’s simply a product of his upbringing. Orgeron hails from Larose, La., in Lafourche Parish, about an hour south of New Orleans, where LSU will play for the national championship on Monday. According to a fascinating vocal study by The Washington Post, “everybody talks like that down there.”More specifically, Orgeron’s voice is a blend of French, Southern English and Cajun (Acadian). According to the Post, the area in which Orgeron was raised was settled largely by Acadians in the mid-18th century, by way of France, after the British expelled them from eastern Canada and northern Maine.Robin White, an associate professor of English and French at Nicholls State University, told the Post that Orgeron’s voice could be described as “flat” by someone from the Larose area, lending to its heavy French influence (which is described as having less vocal intonations than English). She said he pronounces his “Ts” more French, and his “Rs” a little softer than English.Another fascinating tidbit: Orgeron’s voice, White says, isn’t Cajun. It’s French. Why does that matter? The “N” at the end of his name is silent, meaning we’ve all been mispronouncing it when we say “Or-jer-on.”Ed Orgeron sounds like ‘The Waterboy’Anyone who’s seen Adam Sandler’s movie “The Waterboy” has probably made the connection between Orgeron and a character in said movie — “Farmer Fran” — whom no one can seem to understand because of his heavily exaggerated Cajun accent.(Warning: foul language used)Of course, some sharp-eyed commenters were quick to point out and highlight those similarities. Below is one example of many:Curiously, the actor who plays “Farmer Fran” — Blake Clark, from Macon, Ga. — has another well-known role in which he employs an intelligible Cajun accent: “Old Cajun Man,” in the movie “Joe Dirt.” No one seems to have made the connection between that Orgeron and that character, but it’s only a matter of time.MORE: Sporting News’ expert picks for CFP title gameOther teams passed over him because of the way he talksAt one point in time, USC had a chance to hire Orgeron as its next head coach. Orgeron led the Trojans to a 6-2 record as interim coach in 2013 after the school fired Lane Kiffin on the tarmac at LAX. Despite his success, USC opted instead to go with Steve Sarkisian, who was head coach at Washington from 2009-13 and, like Kiffin, was a former offensive coordinator for the Trojans.Sarkisian lasted two seasons at USC, compiling a 12-6 record before getting fired for reasons stemming from alcohol abuse. Orgeron joined LSU as its defensive line coach in 2015 before taking over as interim coach in 2016, again going 6-2. LSU didn’t make the same mistake USC did, hiring him full-time after the season.But why did USC opt to pass on Orgeron? According to one theory posited Bruce Feldman of The Athletic (via the Rich Eisen Show), it was because of Orgeron’s voice. Former athletic director Pat Haden simply didn’t think Orgeron would be a cultural fit in Los Angeles.“I really think it’s a USC issue,” Feldman said. “A lot of people at USC, especially back in that Pat Haden regime, who couldn’t get past what Ed Orgeron sounded like. They didn’t listen to the players. They didn’t listen to the staff. I think at the end of the day … Ed Orgeron is not a country club guy.”Fast forward to Monday’s game: USC is 51-28 after USC made its decision, and LSU is 58-19 with a chance at a national title. There may not be a better coach in all of college football to lead LSU than its current fiery leader, Ed Orgeron.The Louisiana native personifies everything about the state and the program, from his Cajun roots, blue-collar work ethic and, perhaps most importantly, his voice. The best of Ed Orgeron’s interviewsNo article on Orgeron’s voice would be complete without a sampling of some of his best interviews. So, without further ado, the best of Orgeron’s interviews (and one postgame locker room speech):(Warning: Foul language used)I have no idea what Ed Orgeron just said. pic.twitter.com/Lbrj6vtnIi— Jeff Eisenband (@JeffEisenband) December 8, 2019″I’m very proud of being Cajun.”#LSU Ed Orgeron on Cajun French and people mocking his accent.”I thank them. That gave me internal motivation to do better.”https://t.co/Fl0b12sOJ2https://t.co/u0K3U2blGU @WAFB9Sports pic.twitter.com/W28p2xiBLT— Jacques Doucet (@JacquesDoucet) January 12, 2020https://t.co/S4F8XXx9EqWhat a voice. 😂😂🤣🤣🏈🏈 #lsu #CollegeFootball— Leigh (@lionsman33) January 12, 2020last_img read more

Letterkenny resident charged with trafficking man at carwash

Posted On Dec 27 2019 by

first_imgThe trial of a Letterkenny resident charged with trafficking a Romanian man for exploitation to work in a car wash in Sligo town has heard that the man was just getting €4 a day to buy food.Sorin Cirpaci of Fortwell Court, Letterkenny and Augustin Covaci of Cartron, Sligo both deny the charge of coercing the man into working at the car wash on Pearse Road on a date unknown between 28 May 2015 and 9 September 2015. It is alleged that the accused men, who are brothers-in-law, retained the man’s passport and deceived him regarding payment by failing to pay him as agreed or not at all.Retired Detective Garda Michael Carr told Sligo Circuit Court that he organised a search of the car wash premises after receiving information that there was a victim of human trafficking there.He brought the National Employment Rights Authority on board and when they visited the site, they found five men working there.Mr Carr said the alleged victim told him that Mr Covaci had his passport and he was not happy with the situation there.He said it emerged the man had reversed a car into an Audi which was there for valeting and after that his passport was taken from him and he was only given €4 a day.When he left the premises with gardaí, Mr Carr said the man had a small bag with a loaf of bread and a tin of beans in it, and said he was only getting €4 every evening to feed himself with.Speaking through an interpreter, the alleged victim said he came to Ireland in May 2015 to make a better life for his family.He believed he was going to be paid €500 monthly but never saw that money, he only got a small amount and sent it home.The alleged victim said he had worked previously in a car wash in England and at other jobs in Romania.However Colm Smyth, counsel for Mr Cirpaci, disputed his claims and said that according to records obtained by gardaí, he had been serving lengthy prison terms for serious offences when he claimed to be working in Romania.The man confirmed he had served sentences but asked about the dates concerned, he said he did not have a good memory.The alleged victim said he was told he had to work for free for four months to pay for the damage he had caused to a car he had “bumped” and that his passport was taken from him.Mr Smyth put it to him that he was free to leave Mr Sorin’s employment and go back to Romania prior to the damage being done to the car, but the man said that he did not have the financial capacity to leave.The case is the first prosecution under updated human trafficking legislation which increases the maximum penalty on conviction from 14 years to life imprisonment.Letterkenny resident charged with trafficking man at carwash was last modified: November 16th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:carwashcourtdonegalhuman traffickingsligoSorin Circacilast_img read more
