ATLANTA – A gaggle of reporters gathered in the hallway outside of LSU’s locker room waiting for a man in Air Jordans. Out he came in a gray suit, a light purple tie and a $250 pair of white and black tennis shoes, the Air Jordan 11 Concords. Joe Brady is “cool” like that, says one LSU assistant coach. Quiet, somewhat unassuming while also bold and brash—just like his quarterback, Joe Burrow, the surefire Heisman Trophy winner who carved through another top-10 SEC defense on Saturday.
For the first time all year, Brady can think about something other than the next opponent, because he doesn’t know the next opponent—at least not immediately after No.
