After the humiliating loss to Ole Miss on Saturday, LSU now has the 117th worst 3rd Down Defense in the country. In five games, LSU's opponents have converted first downs on 32 of 68 attempts (47%). Against Ole Miss, the LSU defense allowed the Rebels to convert 9 out of 16 attempts on 3rd down.

Additionally, Ole Miss converted 2 out of 3 attempts on 4th down. On the season, LSU's opponents have converted 4 out of 6 attempts on 4th down, ranking 100th in that category.

You can look at NCAA Team Statistics here.

What is the fix?

Play the right personnel, for starters. Apply performance measures to the players — if you miss an assignment or tackle, you’re on the bench. No position is safe because of seniority.

If that doesn’t work, get a new DC who can scheme with the personnel we have or recruit.

This message brought to you by Charmin, the official toilet paper of the LSU defense.

LSU needs a change on defense now, not at the end of the season. An interim DC would be better that what they now have.

This is a horrible horrible horrible inexcusable statistic and a complete reflection of the coaching staff. So glad we hired a coach that brought that soft arse shite he was known for at ND. We were warned.
