During his Monday press conference, head coach Brian Kelly spoke about the impact of Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and Heisman hopeful Jayden Daniels on the recruiting trail. Per SDS:

“It opens up just the fact that player development and the ability to compete for the Heisman Trophy exists at LSU, because it’s not only right now, but it happened a few years ago with another LSU quarterback,” Kelly said in his press conference Monday. “Now you’re starting to build, not an accident, but a trend here at LSU. That obviously speaks to recruiting and the ability to recruit elite quarterbacks to LSU.”

LSU only needed an "average" LSU defense and this team would be undefeated. It's been an easy schedule this year and to have 3 losses is frustrating with an offense this powerful.

We didn't need to be elite on defense. We just needed to have an average defense by LSU standards. Didn't have to be a great LSU defense like we typically see here. Just average and we would be undefeated and in the top 4 and Daniels would be the leading candidate for the trophy.

The sales pitch is that Louisiana rolls out elite running backs and wide receivers.

Now, with Coach Kelly, elite offensive lines.

Don't expect the Sports Information Department at LSU to understand how to market Jayden to the voters of these awards. Don't get your heart broken. The other universities know how and will do a great job for their athletes. LSU has always been abysmal at self promoting. Will Stout was the only time they had excellent work and they'd never ask for his help or outside help for various reasons. Good Luck Jayden, you'll need it.

So the main screen at Times Square was just happenstance for Burrow?

Burrow won it only four years ago. Livy Dunne and Angel Reese were in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition.

I might be asking too much as a fan, but is it possible to combine a good LSU defense with a talent like Jayden Daniels?
How about the 2011 defense with JD5? Too much to ask for?

2011 is one of our 2 or 3 greatest defenses ever.

Even an opportunistic and respectable defense would be enough. 2019 had a lot of star power and forced a lot of turnovers but there were some games they allowed a lot of points. Still, when opportunities to swing momentum showed up they grabbed them. Just need half of that with an elite quarterback and we’d be in the hunt.
