I remember when the Orgeron lovers were slamming Miles for bad OLine recruiting

So 12-16 olineman at all times. That should go over well considering only 5 can play.

How many do you think we had last year?

We had 5 starters. 3 guys making real contributions. And that doesn’t include Hines Wire or the freshmen.

When you play 5 at a position, you can’t afford to take 1 any year. Because you’re never going to hit it 100%

You think Les recruited the lines well his last several years?

Jury is still out on Orgeron. His first full recruiting class (2018) has been a total disaster. 2019 and 2020 had some decent prospects, but obviously they haven't done anything on the field yet. Of course, they are freshmen and sophomores. Usually offensive lineman take a couple of years to develop.

You honestly believe we're only taking 1 offensive lineman this year?

No, I think we are after at least 3

But we need them to be three good ones
Numbers are not everything.

We took 6 DL in 2018.
0 are contributing

He needs to finish with the three good ones.

Honestly, I think Lewis is his best OL recruit?

4/5th of our OL in 2019 were Grimes recruits.

Our OL sucked in 2018 and sucks thisnyear.

He needs to pull it together. Get some guys and more importantly get those guys ready to play.

2018 wasn't his fault as far as recruits.

He turned Damien Lewis into that player.
This year the line looks like shite after people are missing.

Right, but those were also Miles recruits largely that won the Natty — Deculus, Charles, Cush, Magee, Ingram

Do I think they were Joe Moore award greatness in reality? No, I think Burrow, Clyde and the scheme made them look better than they were. But still good enough to win a Natty

Best post I’ve seen in. Long time.


Par level for oLine is fluid.


I say you keep 4 LT and 3everywhere else.



LT-4
LG-3
C-3
RG-3
RT-3







Folks don’t understand why/how bama/Uga do this.


It’s not about 5 positions and the two deep. It’s about keeping the other ~6 non-contributors developing in size and the playbook.

By the time they are sophomore/juniors, they hit the ground running. The development of depth is what keeps you from forcing a frosh into The starting line up.....it happens, but not ideal.

We are going after the top in the country. We have Martinez and dumerville. Our O line will be better

Deculus, Charles and Ingram were all part of the LSU '17 signing class. EdO took over for Les as head coach after the fourth game was it in the '16 season. So NO they signed with EdO.

We just got to get them.

We went after too DL in the country for years and it got us here.

You gotta land the players.

I’m not saying I’m not optimistic.

Finish strong and who gives a frick about this year?

Exactly. Brick Haley got us second place finishes with all the top DL recruits. Unfortunately, and I think this saying applies better to recruiting than just about anything...If you ain't first, you're last.

LA don't grow SEC OL, maybe one kid/year could be called a quality OL recruit. Need 4 or 5.

LSU gets great talent from elsewhere for other positions but OL hasn't come in yet.

Lack of AA OL may be seen by candidates, could be a big factor.

Until this is turned around LSU got a big problem.
