re: Is our D-line recruiting struggles because of Aranda?
Chavis' lack of recruiting started it.

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.


And have CRAZY depth allowing for talented players to rest up and come back in fresher.

re: Is our D-line recruiting struggles because of Aranda?
quote:

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.


There is no system where they teach the d line to not beat blocks and get to the QB. Our guys were just not athletic if enough to do it on a consistent basis. If you look at the tape, it wasn’t for lack of effort. Not everyone can rush from DE at 310+ pounds. Needed to get a little lighter and quicker at those spots to make an impact. Bama runs 3-4 and there DEs are taller than ours and played at 285-290. Ours played 317 and 295-300. There NT played at 295. Our NT played 30-40 pounds heavier.

I’ve been thinking this was the case since year 2. Name a Wisconsin or LSU stud all world lineman under his tutelage. Compare that to CB, S, LB... it’s obvious that DL is not what shines in the Defense.

This year a couple of our guys could push for all American status.

re: Is our D-line recruiting struggles because of Aranda?
No I don't know what our DL coach and Ed have been doing, but it's downright ridiculous that we don't have an abundance of high ranking DL talent that can get in the backfield. That has been a crutch of the LSU defense since 2013.

This has been the case for at least 5 years. And yes Aranda gets so,e of,the responsibility. Not b cause of,scheme or role of the players. But because of recruiting.

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


Just like every other fricking defense out there?

Rashard Lawrence says Hello.

Also, Ika could be a key contributor pretty soon.

Yes, LSU missed on some highly regarded DL in 2019, but the 2020 crop could be special.

re: Is our D-line recruiting struggles because of Aranda?
The problem is LSU hasn’t had a defensive linemen drafted in the first round since 2013, and he played linebacker in the NFL. LSU hasn’t had a defensive linemen drafted in the second round since 2014.

LSU is signing good, but not great defensive linemen. That was the case at the end of Miles’ tenure and it’s still the case now.

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



Absolutely.

Hiring a supposed DL guru and ace recruiter, you’d think DL would be one of the deepest and talented position group on the team.

I thinj There is no coincidence that there is a direct correlation between our best players and our highest rated recruits.

Simply change the numbers, and this has been said for how many years?

This is exactly what was said last year. People just assumed Sopsher was in the bag.

I do t think so, plus, with 12 NFL teams regularly using the 3-4, I would think more young men would want our defense to prepare for the NFL

That's basically what the 3-4 is about.

You’re smarter than you look. it’s a team sport. Read your keys, do your job or it doesn’t work.

Simple as that.

Don’t understand all the down votes. Truth hurts I guess.
