Now find us a defensive mind, that holds teams to 13-14 points per game.


Were you one of the people that didn't like Aranda? Because this just isn't a thing anymore in college football.

I guess it's true what they say about the average fan that they only focus on the offense and usually on the QB. If you watch this team and think the offense is the issue I do not know what to tell you. If Brennan Keeps progressing like he has, next year is going to be special. The D, Um...

Then, instead of interviewing several high caliber DCs, O just goes and gets Pelini, a man who has been out of work for years, failed at his last job, but used to work at LSU and is someone O is comfortable with. All credit to O for last year, but man, the longer this season goes on, the more it looks like he went cheap and lazy on his hiring.


certainly not cheap...

On a list of things that is wrong with this LSU team the offense is pretty far down.

It’s so far down, it’s not on the list. Our offense moves the ball well, scores a lot of points, and is super fun to watch.

At first I thought we had a good chance to be competitive again this year. But when Shelvin, Vincent and Chase - especially Chase - left, I knew this was a lost year. That’s three NFL studs, right there, as I’m one who was very high on Vincent.

I’m enjoying this season. It’s like watching a spring game to me. I know they will get the defense figured out. I also know that it’s not 2011 anymore, and NO DEFENSE stops today’s offenses anymore. Even when they get the defense playing well, we’re going to get gashed some.

Hey, we’ve got a stud QB WHO WE DEVELOPED! Contrary to what a bunch of people thought, our offensive success does NOT depend on the departed Brady. We are in the money year (3) of the shitty 2018 recruiting class. Next year we will have mostly flushed that. We’ll return the top QB in the SEC and about 14 starters instead of the FOUR we returned this year. We will start the year with a veteran defense that already knows their assignments. THAT’s our money year, and THAT is the point at which we stop yo-yo’ing, because we have solid recruiting classes maturing every season.

they hit on big plays But they’ve had a lot of short fields due to turnovers. They can’t run the football at all, can’t get a first down on third down vs a team playing back ups. Couldn’t score from the one yard line There’s a lot of issues with the offense

Correct. They didn't award Joe Brady the Frank Broyles Award just for being a passing coordinator. The committee understood.

Oof

Third down is not "odd", it is horrible. Also, the lack of running game is unacceptable.

re: I want Jeff Grimes as next LSU OC
Our future OC is already on staff. His name is Russ Callaway.

quote:

Callaway, who spent the past five years at Samford, including four seasons as the offensive coordinator, also spent time on Alabama coach Nick Saban’s staff as an analyst.

quote:


“He is tremendous,” Orgeron said. “I think Russ is going to be a great coach in college football. He already proved himself at Samford and had one of the best offenses in the country.”

“He is Ensminger’s right-hand man. He does a lot of work for us and has a lot of energy. I think he is a great young coach.”

Orgeron mentioned how closely Callaway is already working with Ensminger and the rapport he has built with the offensive staff in such a short time.


quote:

With Russ, coming from Samford and being someone who’s called plays and worked on design elements and all this, he’s a great person to put in the room with Steve Ensminger and Scott Linehan and some of these guys who’ve got a tremendous amount of experience because some of the spread things that Russ knows like the back of his hand, he is able to say, well, this is what I’ve done before and gotten some success and add some new wrinkles to what we’re doing with that.”


quote:

Callaway went to Samford in 2015 and helped the team rank among the top five in the FCS in passing offense two of the last three seasons, including No. 1 in 2018 with an average of 392.7 passing yards per game.

With Callaway as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Devlin Hodges won the 2018 Walter Payton Award as the top offensive player in the FCS and broke the FCS career passing yards record previously held by former NFL MVP Steve McNair.

re: I want Jeff Grimes as next LSU OC
The offense is still improving, but if you score 41 pts...however it is done. You should win.

The offense and the line still need to get better, but the problem is the DEFENSE.

Pelini is back to his old ways against passing teams...
has not brought anything new into his repertoire.

The offense wasn't the reason LSU lost to Missouri but the offense isn't opportunistic. There were at least 3 opportunities where LSU scored a TD, the defense get a stop, and the offense come back out and goes 3 and out. And all 3 times LSU went with three personnel change. Going forward, I do believe if LSU wants to be a perennial contender, they need to get younger and innovative coaches on both sides the ball.

I really believe these are the same problem. I wish someone could pull the LSU and national average stats for conversion % on 3rd & 6 or less vs. 3rd & 7 or more. My suspicion is that LSU is average on manageable 3rd downs, slightly below average on 3rd & long, but that the root of the problem is that most of our 3rd down attempts have not been manageable.

In other words - if we can get 4-5 yards on first or second down, 3rd down gets a lot easier.

I may dig up the stats later to see.

It’s all so binary with you people. Just damn. E isn’t the worst playcaller in the world. His biggest shortcoming is that he can’t design an effective modern spread offense. We saw that in 2018. But he was effective using Brady’s system with Brady’s input. While there’s no way to know for sure exactly who did what all the time, we know they worked together and very, very well.

Do we miss Brady? Absolutely. You can see how he knew how to attack mismatches and constantly put pressure on the defense with balance. His game planning and in-game adjustments aren’t there this year. As good as the offense has been, and it’s been better than any LSU passing offense for at least 13 years other than 2019, we can still see the differences.

If E wasn’t going to retire after last season, and his success here has given him the ability to go out on his own terms barring collapse, then O’s job was to replace Brady with someone who could fill the same roll working with E running this system. It seems that he failed at that. The results are still good, but a noticeable step down from 2019.

But all the hysterical comments that Ensminger is running the ship aground are total bull shite. He isn’t the best OC in the world, but last year proved he is very capable of you give him the right support. Some of you really need to get a grip.

The fact is that the offense is doing enough to win if the defense would give them ANY help at all. And if the players execute properly and don’t drop so many balls, we convert 3-5 out of 10 of those 3rd downs last week that everyone is so focused on. It’s hard to play call around some of your best players dropping 1st downs that hit them in the fricking hands. Creative playcalling in the red zone is a legitimate issue this year, but a lot of the issues on 3rd down last were came down to the players.

I’m not Ensminger’s biggest fan. I didn’t like the O hire when it happened. I hated him hiring E when Canada didn’t work out. But his role last year as a major part of the offensive staff didn’t magically disappear the way some of you want it to. The brain dead, binary, it’s all amazing or it’s all trash arguments are such a stupid waste of time here.

Great coaches are great coaches. Age has shite to do with anything until guys hit their 70s, and some like Saban can keep going and maintaining greatness beyond that.
