ESPN's David Ching focused on LSU's Defense in Greg Ostendorf's "SEC spring games: What we didn't learn" article.

How will LSU's defense change under Kevin Steele?
The Tigers' new defensive coordinator gave away very little on Saturday, sticking with mostly vanilla looks on defense. Sure, the defensive linemen's splits looked a bit different at times, and the Tigers relied heavily on their nickel defensive package -- probably their most frequently-used defensive personnel group last season under John Chavis. But there wasn't much in the way of clarity concerning any tactical changes to expect. Nonetheless, LSU fans had to like what they saw from the starting defense. In the 45-6 win for the White team (composed of the first-team offense and defense), the starting defense allowed the reserves to muster just 91 yards of total offense on 40 plays. The White team also recorded five sacks (three by new defensive end Maquedius Bain) and held the reserves to 2-for-11 on third-down conversions. It would be pointless to make any declarations about how good Steele's defense can be based upon its performance on Saturday, but it's clear that the Tigers' new coordinator has plentiful talent with which to work in his starting 11. -- David Ching
