LSU, Danny Etling face more challenging, indicative litmus test at Auburn | Podcast
LSU could still continue its rebound and enter November’s showdown with Alabama on a long winning streak and looking much different that the squad that lost its season opener.
But the Tigers could just as likely stumble again. And again. And again. To a four- or five-loss season.
Saturday at Auburn will be the best indicator yet as to which direction coach Les Miles and company will go.
The performance of new quarterback Danny Etling, who earned his first start this past Saturday against Mississippi State, has been encouraging.
But, if history is any indication, the odds his and his team’s success continues on the road this weekend aren’t exactly through the roof.
Jerit Roser and Mark Clements discuss in the podcast below what Etling has done so far that has been so impressive and what it means for LSU — as well as not only why Saturday could be a long day, but why Etling and company may be equipped to overcome that obstacle and give their fans more reason to be excited.
