LSU’s big Thanksgiving: Texas A&M on Thursday, coaching decision by Sunday? | Podcast

LSU will complete its regular season Thursday at Texas A&M, but the biggest developments of the week could come in the days to follow.

Sources have indicated to several media outlets, including DatBoot.com, that a decision on the program’s head coaching position could be determined as early as this weekend with reports swirling that an aggressive run is being made at Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher.

Jerit Roser and Mark Clements dive into the Tigers’ date with the Aggies and the potentially imminent hire in the podcast below.

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.”

Could Saturday’s matchup with Florida have been any more heavily anticipated a month ago, considering the Gators may have been considered the least threatening opponent remaining on LSU’s schedule at the time?

The rivalry always bears its share of intensity and talk — whether in the lead-up to games or the offseason. But the public squabbles over the eventual postponement of a contest originally scheduled for Oct. 8, controversial photographs with a cat skeleton and a recently unleashed blunt swagger from the Tigers’ players have heaped gallons of fuel upon that fire.

All for a game that has plenty of storylines, regardless of all that talk.

Saturday will mark the final game in Tiger Stadium for seniors such as Kendell Beckwith, Tre’Davious White and Lewis Neal, as well as likely some juniors such as Leonard Fournette, Jamal Adams and Davon Godchaux — although Fournette drew headlines this week he might consider otherwise.
