Not sure but it’s stupid to schedule a triple option team these days. We will waste time preparing for the triple option bc we rarely see it and IMO will take some time away from prepping for UT

They’ve been decent the last few years, with the exception of last year. Last year they had a new coach, who they’ve since fired IIRC. They’re a triple option team, so it’s something much different than we’re used to seeing.

So good that they believe in mom, dad, puppy dogs and fairy tales as well as uncle Todd who waives his penis.

Similar to the Peach Bowl against GA Tech in 2008 (38-3), against a weaker team than Tech. It’s about defensive discipline and assignments.

re: How good is Georgia southern?
Im a student at Southern. Georgia Southern is actually very serious about their football program. They won 6 FCS titles and won the Sunbelt the first year in FBS.

After a couple of the worst years in program history, Lunsford had a great year and seems like hes getting the program back on track. Watch out for my boy Shai Werts. He threw 10 TDs to zero picks last year and can make plays happen in both the air and on the ground.

Im planning on making the trip to BR with a couple of my buddies. It's going to be a win-win for me as I grew up a LSU fan.

I am worried about Georgia Southern. That team has traditionally played strong vs P5 schools, and I'm not sure if LSU will be focussed on them given the presence of @Texas in Week 2.

Just do what it takes to win. I don't expect it to be an easy game at all, even less so if LSU has to wear purple jerseys (cf Oregon State, first game of 2004).

Trying to make up things to be worried about. We should hang 60 on these guys without a problem.

Mullen/Florida beat us with four or five triple option plays run by Felipe Franks of all people.

Our offense will have a couple of triple option looks.

Otherwise I agree. No doubt this was scheduled many years ago.

Pretty sure that was the speed option they used.

They are more competitive than any of the Louisiana directional schools. They went into the Swamp and won in 2013 and took UGA to overtime in 2015.
I think LSU wins but it won’t be a walk over.

Triple option is deadly. If the game is close. The real key will be just having the offense score 28 in the 1st q

If LSU is not ready, they could lose this game..AND then lose to Texas in week two... Starting 0-2 would mean a serious problem for this program and O should be fired at that point..................

If I'm in your backfield, your scheme is worthless. We'll be in their backfield.

Not when you have multiple defenders who are NFL bound. Option relies on missed assignments and slower adjustments when the play develops.
That's why it doesn't work so well consistently against P5 teams,particularly SEC defenses. Damn sure would not work on that Miss State defense last year.
We should be that good this year.
