If we can only keep Miles from meddling with the defense.

That's what I want to know..........how many LSU possessions in 3 games, how many 3-and-outs, and what's the average time of possession? Thanks. I'll hang up and listen.

We only "tried hard" on offense for a combined 5 quarters so far, I would guess. I think we'll be just fine on O when we see a real opponent.

re: Offensive Production - 3 games in under Cam


Lets look a little deeper last year/this year. The perception of a different balance of offensive result may be mostly just that ... a perception.

Through 3 games 2012: N.Texas, Washington, Idaho

2012
Rushing
.....Run yds r/TD
LSU 137 798 12
Opp 85 141 0

Passing
.....C-At-INT yds p/TD
LSU 48-68-2 709 4
Opp 49-93-5 476 4

Through 3 games 2013: TCU, UAB, Kent State

2013
Rushing Runs yds TDs
LSU 119 656 8
Opp 101 332 4

Passing: C A Int Yds TDs
LSU 46-70-0 808 9
Opp 44-82-1 471 1

This year, we are scoring more TDs passing, but are not as much scoring rushing the ball. Overall offensive production is about the same, yardage, TDs, etc. Our running game is statistically not as productive, but we are slightly improved in offensive pass production, slightly lower percent completions but fewer ints, etc.

On the other hand, we have fewer interceptions on defense, and are allowing more rushing TDs, more rushing yardage etc.

Summary: I'm not seeing much offensive difference 2012-2013, at least in the cumulative. But I think the timing of passing/running plays may be different so that it appears the offense itself is different.

I do think there is a slight statistical decline in the defense, and possibly in the running attack, but that may be because of a change in pattern, not frequency, of play calling.

stats dont tell the whole story, everyone knows that.

The offense is 10x better than last year.

last years defense was full of 2-3 year starters. This years is very young plus on top of that they are experimenting and playing alot of guys, mainly alot of young guys. Of course they will give up more yards.

Once the staff decides on the units and buckle down and quit subbing as much the D will improve.

Really? 10x as good? Based on what? I'm all for a revamped great offense, but let's not fool ourselves yet... 10x as good? Really?

You're talking about two different things. Overall production may not increase drastically, but a team that can score consistently in both ways is much much more difficult to defend.

no more "loading the box"

the stat you're looking for is 3rd down conversion %. through 3 games last year we were at 50%, and finished the year at 40%. through 3 games this year we're converting almost 64%. we've been put in third down fewer times than any other team in the country who's played three games. So projecting towards the end of the season, even if we downgrade that by the same percentage as we fell last year as we face tougher competition, or by the same proportion, we still end up damn near leading the fricking country in that category. And considering we didnt play a defense anywhere near as good as tcu's in the first three games last year, that is really an unbelievable turnaround.
