Division III coach Hal Mumme said Thursday he has "turned in" LSU's Ed Orgeron to the NCAA after his school, Belhaven, was allegedly pressured into canceling a satellite camp in Louisiana.

"Apparently, nobody in the rest of America can recruit from the state of Louisiana because of Paranoid Ed," Mumme said on 99.1 The Game in Birmingham, Ala.

Belhaven was set to host a camp Thursday in Hammond, La., with a handful of schools, including LSU and Texas, scheduled to attend. But the Tigers, led by Orgeron, were said to have coerced Belhaven into slashing the showcase in an effort to spoil the Longhorns' recruiting efforts in their backyard.

It was at least the third camp in Louisiana to be shut down in recent weeks because of pressures from the state's most prominent football program. The cancellation cost low-budget Belhaven around $5,000.

"The kids that got hurt are not the kids LSU and Texas are going to recruit," said Mumme, who's been at Belhaven for three years and coached at Kentucky for four between 1997 and 2000.

It's the second straight day in which Mumme has blasted Orgeron. He introduced the nickname "Paranoid Ed" on Wednesday.
