Whatever helps motivate the players, right?
As LSU prepared to take the field to face off against Mississippi State in Baton Rouge on Saturday, ESPN cameras caught an odd and pretty dangerous pump-up routine.

LSU went on to defeat Miss State, 19-3 but for the sake of their strength coach, let’s hope they find a different way to motivate their team.
