LSU’s offensive struggles vs. Florida far surpass final play, toss dive

by Jerit 0 Comments

Saturday’s final play was less the culprit than a nutshell.

LSU snapped the ball from Florida’s 1-yard line, tossed to running back Derrius Guice and came up short of tying and likely beating the Gators as time expired.

The Tigers’ offense had left much more to be desired for four quarters of a miscue-riddled afternoon for both sides, though, than simply an understandably frustrating conclusion to the 16-10 defeat.

“We can’t put the result of the game on one play,” senior fullback John David Moore said. “That wouldn’t be fair to anybody on this team. Really, yeah, he was supposed to go the other way, but at the end of the day, it comes down to everybody on this team.”

LSU, particularly offensively, has looked revitalized under interim coach Ed Orgeron, to say the least.

But the Missouri and Southern Miss squads on which the Tigers have hung a combined 87 points are a far cry from the five opponents that await during the next six weeks.

And No. 23 Ole Miss (3-3) figures to provide No. 25 LSU its biggest measuring stick thus far this season — a couple weeks later than anticipated because of the postponement of the Florida matchup until Nov. 19.

Jerit Roser and Mark Clements discuss some keys and expectations for this week’s game in the podcast below, as well as a peek ahead to the brutal November stretch of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Texas A&M in consecutive weeks and some takeaways from highly regarded prospect Dylan Moses’ visit to Baton Rouge this past week.

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.
