DEFENSE “DOMINANT” IN THIRD FULL-SCALE LSU SCRIMMAGE OF THE SPRING


BATON ROUGE – The defense held the upper-hand on Saturday as LSU wrapped up its third week of spring drills with a game-like situational scrimmage indoors at the Charles McClendon Practice Facility.

Saturday’s scrimmage marked the ninth practice of the spring for the Tigers. LSU will practice three times next week and then wrap-up spring drills the following week. LSU’s National L Club Spring Game will take place on Saturday, April 21 at 5 p.m. in Tiger Stadium. Admission to that contest will be free.

“I’m proud of our football team and the way they came to work today,” LSU coach Ed Orgeron said. “We were going to go to Tiger Stadium but the grass was a little slick so we decided to stay inside where we would have better traction and not risk injury.

“We are nine practices in and we are right where we want to be.”

LSU opened the scrimmage with a 16-play session, nine of which were considered “wins” by the defense as compared to seven “wins” for the offense.

Orgeron then put the Tigers through game-like situations for the next segment of the scrimmage where the defense won that part of the day.

“(The scrimmage) was dominated by the defense. They had a wonderful day,” Orgeron said. “We had a tremendous pass rush and forced some turnovers. I thought the defense was on fire most of the day.”

The reason LSU football will continue to slide into Hades is because of nut swanging fans who are delusional and certifiably psychotic: Coach Zer0 is not taking us anywhere and it is not up for debate. If you are fine with being 8-4 or less the next few years good. But dont insult us real fans who want more and expect it with the amount of talent in state every year.

I don't how good or bad this team will be. What I do know is that I'm not pulling against O like so many on this board. I'm not wishing Ensminger fails either. Failing and gutting the coaching staff....again....does not move the program forward. Having a good season, going to a big bowl and following up with a top 5 recruiting class moves the program forward.

One of my concerns for the program is that the ONLY coordinator that that has shown a proficiency for his job and the only one that has offers for the same job at other programs is Arada, and he is the ONLY one not hired by Ed.

Consider this, the last two years LSU has had two of the top RB's in College, one of the best centers in Pocic in college, and one of the best WR's in college in DJ. And, we still sucked. And, we are to expect better next year? Consider my pessimism warranted sunshine pumpers.

We didn’t “suck”. There were plenty of other teams that had that also. It’s a team game. Everything has to come together in the right way to make it work.

I’m well aware of who we lost to. We should have gone 10-3 and yet we just suck so bad because we didn’t show up against Troy. Most reasonable people know that we would have beaten that team 9 out of 10 times. It just makes some of y’all feel so special to talk about how bad we suck.

Stupid comment. LSU is going to have one of the top defenses in the country.

Still would be nice to not be dominated on offense by a great D all the time. We shall see. I keep remembering 0 points against Bama at home.

Can you describe how the offense was playing for those of us who weren’t there to see it?

Was just going to say that. Defense dominating only tells me our pitiful offense will continue to be pitiful.
