LSU vs. Georgia tonight brings back memories of Kiana Rogers in '15
BATON ROUGE - Tuesday night, LSU faces Georgia at the PMAC.
The SEC match up marks a year since the last time the teams met in Baton Rouge and created a quick, viral sensation. Kiana Rogers' flash in the pan moment came when ESPN cameras focused on her enthusiasm after a the Tigers made a miraculous come back in overtime to send the game into a second extra session. Rogers essentially "lost it" and she screamed curse words. The jubilation was captured by the TV cameras and made her an Internet sensation.
"I felt like I was about to die, like this was a life or death situation, not a win or lose situation," said Rogers about the intensity of the moment. "I actually don't curse. Like if I'm having a conversation with a friend, I'll say it in my head but I won't actually say it. I think it's dirty. But in that moment I wasn't thinking about what I was saying, I was just going crazy and everything."
Rogers said she was displaying the same enthusiasm she gives to LSU football, passing grades and even canceled classes.
"It'll probably go away in a couple of weeks and I'll be sad. Until then, I'm going to live it up," she said back in 2015. Rogers may have settled on her fame fading. Her Twitter has gone silent; there have been no posts since December.
