During his press conference on Monday, head coach Brian Kelly was asked about the success that linebacker Harold Perkins is having and how LSU's defense as a whole is helping the freshman star.

Q. Harold is obviously gathering a lot of attention, and rightfully so. But can you speak to his teammates opening him up, freeing him up, and the job that each of them maybe differently are doing to allow him to be so free?

BRIAN KELLY: Obviously a lot of this has to do with the ability to flush him out. That's BJ and Ali Gaye, and certainly J Roy probably had his best game of the year.

I mean, there's a lot of guys that go into this, right? Micah Baskerville. I could go on and on with that front. Sai'vion was outstanding. He played with speed and agility. That group up front -- Mekhi Wingo, we've talked about all year -- they make a lot of that happen because they flush that quarterback. Then, you know, you've got a guy like that that can just chase them down.

It's pretty impressive the marriage, if you will, between the two where you have a group that can get a quarterback outside the pocket and then go chase it down. You know, it's kind of what I talked about from an offensive perspective. It's gotten us thinking about do you spy Harold now? Do you put a spy on Harold? Do you have somebody from the running back position try to shadow him?

So we're preparing for all these eventualities as we kind of move forward.

Is this what it’s like to have a coach who self scouts and begins preparing for when other teams eventually adjust to their routines?
