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 confidence in Danny Etling obvious vs. Mississippi State, but bigger test looming at Auburn

by Jerit 0 Comments

Teammates entered and exited the postgame press conference room Saturday night calling Danny Etling’s name as media members swarmed LSU’s new quarterback.

The playful nature wasn’t uncommon for the Tigers — particularly on the heels of a victory — but the confidence and comfort in the junior on the night of his first start since transferring from Purdue had already become evident much earlier and often.

Both from his fellow players and his coaches.

“Extended plays, ad-libbed, did the things he was supposed to do. Pretty accurate. I think he missed on maybe two throws. Made plays with his feet. I liked him,” coach Les Miles said, later adding: “I do very much like Danny, and I think he’s done a great job, and I would anticipate that he would be in that position come that trip to Auburn here next week.”
