Thinnest LSU has been at RB since i can remember. Hope someone can step up.

Nick Brossette scares me as the #1 RB. Never really showed much except for 1 game. I was at the Troy game and watched him get blown up on play #1. I hope more reps means better vision.

Got blown up cause our o line was without 3 starters and they pulled 2 redshirts off that week for o linemen. So hard to say how he’ll be. We should pass more so may not have to rely as much on the run.

He cannot hold onto the ball

Sounds like the O-line looks good, and the senior RB is good at the running game scheme we run. I'm in.
