LSU heads to Florida with coaching, execution criticism abound | Tiger Pride Podcast

LSU heads to Florida this weekend in dire need of a victory against the Gators to right a ship many fans and media see as quickly sinking.

The Tigers have now lost two of their past three in the wake of a 24-21 stumble at home to the Sun Belt conference’s Troy that ended a slew of notable streaks the Bayou Bengals had carried for much of the 2000s thus far.

And fingers are pointing in every direction — from the team’s youth, to its leaders, to coordinators Dave Aranda and Matt Canada, head coach Ed Orgeron and athletic director Joe Alleva.

Mark Clements and Jerit Roser delve into LSU’s biggest issues thus far, what to make of the coaching and administrative situations, the quarterback battle between Danny Etling and Myles Brennan, and in exactly how serious of dangerous the program is of a bigger-picture slide.

LSU’s 27-0 rout of BYU in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this past weekend was enough to force Jerit Roser and Mark Clements to revisit at least a couple of their preseason predictions.

With seemingly eyes on offensive coordinator Matt Canada’s debut, LSU’s dominant — and ironic — defense stole the show in the program’s return to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Tigers (1-0) held BYU (1-1) to just 92 yards of total offense in Saturday’s 27-0 shutout victory to begin the 2017 schedule, their first season-opening shutout since 2007.

In fact, the Cougars failed to cross the 50-yard line in a performance many fans and media throughout the day likened to LSU’s own offensive futility in the 2011 national championship contest in the same venue.

“I think the second quarter, we’re over there looking at the stats and saying, ‘You know, we’ve got a real shot of doing this,'” senior defensive lineman Christian LaCouture said. “We expect to be that. But you never know at the game — you could have a great performance, but it’s 200 yards total or 300 yards total, but you played well.

“But when I saw in the fourth-quarter, it’s (about) 97 yards, I’m like, ‘No, we’re staying in. We’ve gotta keep going.'”
