The South Carolina game will finally give us the answer to what we have debated for year after year. Miles' and his staff's offensive aptitude
Regardless of your stance on Miles, positive or negative, there is no escaping the following truth.
Now we can all agree that Mettenberger is not having the greatest start and that the timing and and rhythm and his receivers is just not there. Likewise, our O-line has been weakened by injury after injury.
Also, USCe is bringing into TS a defense that is more ferocious than Florida's. Clowney and co. are scary good and were living in UGA's backfield last night. So what will the offense look like?
This isn't opinion. This isn't conjecture. This is friggin x's and o's 101.
You don't run straight at them. Miles' bread-and-butter ground-and-pound will not work
. They need to utilize misdirection, quick-hitting passes, screens, etc. to use Clowney and the rest of the USC defense's aggressiveness against them. You have
to slow them down by tossing quick passes over their heads. This also will help Mettenberger achieve a rhythm with his WR's and TE's early on.
Long story short, based on LSU's injuries, passing game, and the opponent they are facing, if this coaching staff knows anything about adjusting and running an offense adequately, LSU's offense will look different than it normally does.
Now whether they win or lose, I don't really care at this point.
I will just be waiting to see if they bother even fricking trying.
