re: For those that say LSU is losing too many starters...


Two returning CBs and Loston in the secondary = no problems

We lose Minter, but LBers are the least of my worries.

DT of Ego and Freak = no issues

DE is the only position I think we struggle a bit, but all in all, this defense will be good enough to keep us in games, and the offense will WIN games for us.


I think you are missing "Hunter, Rasco & Maclin" that I believe will have a significant impact at the DE position. We will be just fine!

Also, have a true OC instead an O-line caoch playing OC will be HUGE! Stud, can just coach the O-line and Cam will make our offense more of a true threat! I just hope Les does not try to call the plays! The only aspect of Miles do not like is his trying to call the offense! Love him otherwise!

The offense of Bama during their spring game on ESPN looked horrible! Them missing almost that entire offensive line will be more of an issue than our defense! We will find out week two when they play at College Station! I truly feel it will be between us and ATM who takes the SEC West this year!

not counting on much out of Maclin, think he's still rehabbing the knee. and it sounds like Jordan Allen may be in the mix for a starting gig ahead of Hunter. hoping that at least 1 of the incoming DEs can be a factor (esp as a pass rusher) somewhat how Kirston Pittman was in 03.

The comment was "LSU started more freshmen". They played 15 true freshmen.

Tigers started
three freshmen on offense
two freshmen on defense
nickle and dime backs were also freshmen

You will be fine yes, but the defense will have holes and it will show.

LSU return's four starters to it's defense, same as '10. They also return a total of nine players with some level of starting experience. Total of 56 games started.

DL - Freak 3 starts
LB - Barrow 15 starts, Louis 5 starts, T Jones 2 starts and K Alexander 2 starts
DB - Loston 14 starts, Mills, 13 starts, J Collins 1 start and Martin 1 start

Playing experience

DL - Ego, Rasco, Allen, Hunter, Thomas and M Johnson
LB - Welter, D Jones and Feist
DB - Eugene and Thompson

That's 20 players with game experience right there. That's a good starting point.

With the new guys coming in I expect no less than another six/seven to see time playing defense in '13 not just STs. The biggest need among the new players is DL and Lacoture more than held his own in the spring.
