Is our D-line recruiting struggles because of Aranda?
Yall think that the DL recruiting problems are because of Aranda's system. He says that the NT and DE are there to absorb the blockers so that the linebackers can roam free to make plays. Do you think we are pitching this to these high schoolers while other schools are telling them that they could be stars and make plays themselves? I could see the logic as to why these top DL would decommit or commit to other schools over the past few years. I mean I love aranda's system but we might be missing on these elite big men because of that. But maybe its just Orgeron not getting lucky or delivering.

Aranda's D is challenging for all involved, you have to know your role and except it to work.

Most 3-4 defenses work this way, including Bama’s. Most 3-4 DL know what the deal is.

We run the same 3-4 scheme that Bama does for the most part. Their DL make more plays because they’re more talented across the board and win the individual battles. If anything, Aranda’s version of the 3-4 is more aggressive for the DL when compared to Bama’s scheme.

I mean, if Greg Gilmore had 7 sacks from his NT position, anyone should be able to excel in Aranda's DL. I do, however, believe that we need someone to break through as an All-American for us to start getting better recruits there. There's some negative recruiting going on. It shouldn't be this hard to get recruits at the position, especially from our own state.

I'm certain our down linemen are still trying to shed blocks and make plays. Them absorbing blocks may be the effect of the scheme, but it is not end goal.

I don't have one personally but I'm sure he said it. That is the basis of a 3-4 scheme.

No its Ed O and Meatballs fault. There are plenty of 3/4 defenses who use have great players playing NT and DE that are used the same way Aranda does his guys.

We simply arent getting it done because of mediocre coaches who arent elite recruiters on this LSU staff.

Alabama and UGA both run 3-4s and seem to be recruiting fine.

Not to mention Aranda runs a 1 gap scheme

Wade Phillips is a. 3-4 guys and JJ Watts and Aaron Donald do more than eat blocks. We just don’t have those guys.

I thought with the coach we have now running the program we'd be overflowing with DL talent. Not so much.

I think LSU's biggest problem is the level of DL talent on the starting line, along with quality of depth. We simply don't have enough talented, nasty DL to compete with Alabama and we don't have enough depth behind the starters to provide a consistent high level of play all game long!

Think part of it is his simulated pressure system but most of it is the horses we have aren't great pass rushers.

No. No, it's not.

There are many ways to run a 3-4.

If someone doesn't get geeked up at the fact he's p lb. Saying for aranda and an elite defense they're other players we should be looking at. Being the "playmaker" sometimes means consistantly holding your responsibility on the D-line. Doesn't always show up on the stat sheet but I promise opposing coaches and NFL scouts pay attention.
