Many College Football writers, analyst, fans, and even former players have been very critical of the Tigers and the coaching staff after Saturday's historic 24-21 loss to Troy.

On Sunday morning former LSU player and current ESPN College Football analyst Booger McFarland shared his opinions on the Tigers via Twitter and didn't hold back.

McFarland called out pass rusher Arden Key, saying that the junior is playing for the NFL Draft and not for LSU. He also had criticism for first-year offensive coordinator Matt Canada.


The criticism from the College Football world is expected as LSU has gone from No. 13 to unranked in just five weeks with two embarrassing losses and no signature win to hang their hat on.

Coaching concerns, issues on offense, defense, special teams, depth issues, and injuries could mean that things will get worse before it gets better. Add seven straight SEC games that are coming up for the Tigers and it could be a long season in Baton Rouge.

This dude's business plan is whack if he is playing for the NFL right now. He's heavy, not explosive, and does not seem to have natural instincts. I feel like the truly elite athletes (the best of the best) have a natural instinct... and that goes for any sport. They have natural feel for what they are doing, but Key does not seem to have that. So I'm puzzled as to why he would think it is a good idea to loaf... If anything, he should be trying to prove himself and his worth... Especially after the offseason he just had.

Not the same player at all. Whatever the heck he was "dealing" with in the offseason sure as hell wasnt being done in a gym.

Key should not be playing

Key is fat, looks out of shape and is noticeably less explosive this season than last. Take it for what it is but he is not the 2016 version right now.

Who cares? Anyone who misses 6 months of football for unexplained reasons, gains too much weight, and is generally a head case doesn't need to be around the team anyway. He'll get drafted in a middle round and be out of the league within 2 years.

Booger has to be a friend of Orgeron. He's not helping any at this point. I've yet to see him blame O for anything. It's Canada's offense that's the cause of the lack of toughness according to him.

Booger was not a supporter of the Orgeron hire. He may be a friend now but not when it was happening.

Booger McFarland needs to STFU. He was the guy who lead the charge against Les Miles and got us into this mess. He is Alabama fan and a Nick Saban fan. Not a LSU fan and an unworthy LSU alum. He only played for himself when he was here and not for us at LSU.

Booger was in the NFL before Saban ever coached at LSU. He is a fan of the way Saban coaches. He is not a Bama fan. Too say he he is an unworthy LSU alum is show your ignorance. He cares about LSU football just as much as any of us fans do.

Football is violent and deadly on occasion. In its infancy players died often. Players who engage in it are brave in a way.

If he's 100% physically (which I assume he is since he's on the field), he's definitely loafing.
