BR paper “This time it’s LSU’s defense that needs an extreme makeover”
BR’s The Advocate reported that LSU’s defense is going through what the offense went through after Canada left describing it as needing an extreme makeover. On the plus side it noted the entire Dline returns with depth and LSU may posses the two top corners in the country. Linebackers are the biggest question, can they prove their worth? And can new DC Daronte Jones dramatically improve the FBS’s worse pass defense?

The talent is obviously there on LSU’s defense, so is the coaching. Gotta believe lightning may strike twice for Coach O. Jones is a solid hire.

Tiger fans will be pleasantly surprised. Still it’s asking a lot to improve as much as the 2019 LSU offense did.

I won't speak in absolutes about the new coaching staff. The performance will speak for itself. But last year's team had SEVERAL guys who in 2019 and before performed well but all of a sudden looked terrible last season. It's unlikely they all suddenly regressed. Clearing the coaching/scheme, what have you was a disaster (probably for many reasons).

That alone gives me reason to believe the defense will be much improved. Just how much is the ultimate question.

I imagine the average poster here knows more than a staff writer at the advocate these days.

I’ll say it… the spring game.

I’m not ready to say whether it’s a solid hire or not just yet, but I’m very encouraged by what I saw in the spring game.

I saw really solid fundamentals and assignment football. And I saw 100% effort.

The question mark positional groups - LBers and Safeties - played way better than I anticipated, especially this early on.

ETA: That’s with LB Strong playing 2nd string. LB Mike Jones not yet on campus. And only one of our ultra-talented freshman Safeties on campus at the time.

Including the offense. None of these guys have ever called the plays at this level

From what I’ve read from average fans here, they’re not knowledgeable, they said that LSU’s DC is just an average Joe that he has to prove himself first. I’m much more pleased with this hire than the Canada hire for OC.

There is absolutely nothing "Solid" about it.

The SEC West is no place for OTJ training for Defensive Coordinators.

The fricking linebackers coach has more experience as a DC than does the actual DC......

I had to look this up. I knew we were bad, but didn't realize we finished dead last.

We have some heralded kids, some journeymen, some under achievers, transfers, and several new coaches. They all have a lot to prove.

Last season we were terrible and for us to win ten games it’s got to play a whole lot better.
