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.

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

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.

Playing for the NFL? If he's auditioning for 5th or 6th round, he's doing a marginal job of it. There are several players who seem disinterested at best.

LOL he's played himself out of around $30 Million so far so that's not working well for him either.

I don't even know why Key is on the field if you watch the film of game he does not go full speed.

Sadly, the speed you see may be he full speed nowadays. But yes, the effort is lacking

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.

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.

Agreed. I think NFL teams will watch this and decide against using a high pick on someone who doesn't give full effort.

You mean just like those NFL teams did with Clowney by drafting him 1st overall?

Yeah. I thought about Clowny after my post. You're probably right, GeauxTigersLee. In the NFL, if you have potential, they will take a chance on you. Especially Jerry Jones.

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.

Auburn is going to beat this team badly.
