LSU related obviously, b/c if you watched LSU defense all year and then watched Michigan last night - they are in two different planets from each other.

The DBs/ S tackling - I was transported back to early 2000s LSU defense.

Just wow - very impressive. We need that.

Perkins and/or Wingo would be only kids even able to start on that team. Michigan wouldn’t want another soul.

Agree. Just said the same in another thread. LSU is nothing but plugs on defense.

Sure you could point to personnel, but that is not the point.

The coaching is obviously what got them there - technique, flying around, good angles, control of the scheme, etc.

Didn't see any of that that type of thing this year from LSU.

Michigan was so physical yesterday on both sides of the ball.

Coaching my arse. Angles, ball awareness, instincts, etc are something good players have regardless of coaching.

Mason Smith would be a 3rd string tackle there!

Looking forward to see what BK brings forth defensively next year.

Not sure either one would be a definite starter for Michigan. 2022 Perkins, yes. 2023 Perk maybe. Wingo definitely not imo.

The LSU coaches did not forget how to coach one year to the next.

All the injuries in defensive back field hurt and limited what the defense could do

but less talented players can be taught those things
and that hasn't happened at LSU for two years with this D staff
Complete overhaul is our only option at this point. Everyone that follows college football thinks LSU doesn't know how to play defense....and we don't. So why come to LSU to play defense?

Well, at least our coaches have some game tape of what actual good tackling technique and angles look like.

This is why if Harbaugh leaves Michigan and Jesse Minter Defensive Coordinator comes available, LSU would be perfect for him and us.

Easy explanation. Michigan stole the Alabama tackling sign.

There was one play Mich made that stood out to me as lacking in LSU's defense this year.

UM ran a corner blitz and Milroe dumped to the WR at the LOS who was dropped immediatly. When they replayed it you could see the safety sprinting over to cover the WR when the CB broke for backfield and dropped him at the point of catch. That play would have gone for 50 on us this year...

It is pretty concerning that something as simple as tackling fundamentals did not improve a single bit all year long.
That falls on every single defensive coach and the head coach.
As focused on “attention to detail” as BK seems to be, it is very confusing to have serious fundamental issues on defense with little to no improvement all season long.
The head coach may not be as talented of a play caller as a given DC, but I fully expect a head coach to be able to step in and fix fundamental issues when the other coaches aren’t getting the job done.

I'm beginning to wonder if Kelly is concerned about the defense. Deeply concerning lack of improvement and of course scheme was overall main issue and they kept running same crap all season long.
