Huey Long incidentEdit
Throughout Lawrence "Biff" Jones' head coaching career at LSU, U.S. Senator Huey P. Long had reportedly interfered with his decision-making and recruiting. At halftime of LSU's 1934 final home game against Oregon, with the Tigers trailing 13-0, Long approached the team's locker room and demanded to speak with the team. Tired of Long's meddling with the team, Jones informed the Senator that he would quit after the game, "win, lose, or draw." The Tigers would come back and defeat the Ducks 14-13, and Jones would make good on his promise, leaving the program to coach the Oklahoma Sooners and later the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Bernie Moore, LSU's track and field coach, would take over the head football coach position. Both Jones and Moore would wind up being elected to the College Football Hall of Fame.
