LSU coach Ed Orgeron was on SportsTalk with Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic this week and talked about the possibility of cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. playing some offense this season for the Tigers.

Per Crissy Froyd with LSU Wire:
quote:

Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron recently said in an exclusive interview on SportsTalk with Bobby Hebert and Kristian Garic that Stingley will likely get snaps at wide receiver, but that it “remains up in the air” as to exactly how much action he will see.

“That’s up to him. We’ve discussed that. He may try a little offense in fall camp, see how it works,” Orgeron said in the interview.

“Obviously we’d like to use him but that’s totally up to him. I gave him that opportunity and him and his daddy agreed. He’s spent two years playing corner. He’s ready.”
How do we feel about this?

As long as he isn’t taking away touch’s for Boutte

Those saying it must be bc our WR’s aren’t good or it sounds bad for the WR’s, y’all do realize they’ve had this in mind and out in the open for a year or more? They didn’t know who would be available or doing well at the position the first time this was mentioned so it has no reflection on that ground. When it was first mentioned, I saw some say it may be their way of trying to get him in the Heisman conversation instead of playing DB and returning punts/kicks only.

So his receivers are that bad on offense that he needs help from a defensive guy to be on offense?? Well the hell did he bring his 3 new offensive guys if thats the best he can come up with. Need some dynamic play makers. I saw all the dynamic plays in ,2020 season which resulted in 5 wins and 5 losses left everyone disappointed. Maybe I mis understood

You are a moron if you actually believe that Ed O could foresee 3 years into the future when they first mentioned him playing both sides. It was actually a way to garner more national hype so Stingley could possibly win a Hiesman award at the end of his 3rd season but he really messed that up last season with all the BLM BS (because it greatly affected his play and his drive to play for his team). They will eventually see how foolish it was to buy into that BS. It was all fake propaganda. Besides all that Stingley is a great athlete and if there was a possible way to score more points while having fun then do it. People like you must be miserable.

Ignorant comment of the day right there. Have you seen our depth at wr and running back? We are stacked all the way around. He may get a few plays just to confuse or worry defenses but nothing more. Our wr’s are more than capable

Old news.

Back in the early 70’s LSU had someone like Stingly named Tommy Casanova. Cholly Mac ruined his senior year by letting him play offense. Of course he got hurt early in ‘71 and missed half the season. So no Coach O don’t be tempted.

Im fine with dialing a few plays for him next year. But Stingley is going to be a millionaire based off of his ability as a defensivr back. Seems unfair to him and possibly a negative aspect of crooting

It's a huge gamble. Can take away focus from crushing it at corner. Also possible to get an injury. If either happens, could dent his draft stock. Dangerous move

Stingley is the one who wants this. It was part of the reason he went to LSU is that in his third year he would get to play offense. Orgeron told him if you come to LSU, we will get this done for you. Nobody is pushing Stingley to do this. It is what he wants.

Not sounding good for our WR class outside of Boutee

He ain’t playing offense. Nothing to gain, only an injury risk. He’s a top 5 pick right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if he opts out midway through the season.

Limited like for a gadget play or as a decoy to free up Boutte? 100% yes.

The guy laid down last year...played pretty badly at times and he's rewarded with getting what he wants?

It was his dad that told O not to play him on offense until after he had 2 years to learn defense.

He didn’t “lay down!” You don’t have the facts! You’re on the outside looking in! Don’t judge.

Do it. He’s a freak athlete and he’s gone after this season

Irrelevant topic in June.

O promised him he could. Man of his word.

Exactly. This promise was made long ago when on the recruiting trail. 2 years at DB the time on offense in JR ($$$) year

This. He's publicly showing other recruits that he'll keep his word. Odds are, Stingley will just pass on the opportunity, keep focusing on defense, and never take a snap at WR.
