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.

Air Canada? LSU, Danny Etling go vertical against Chattanooga

by Jerit 0 Comments

LSU provided arguably its two or three most impressive offensive plays of the young 2017 season before halftime even arrived in Saturday’s 45-10 rout of Chattanooga.

Senior quarterback Danny Etling capped the Tigers’ first drive with a pair of fakes in the backfield — a handoff to running back Derrius Guice and end-around to wide receiver D.J. Chark — and 36-yard sling on target to a wide-open Drake Davis in the end zone.

After a defensive stand, Etling dropped back on LSU’s next offensive play and heaved the ball deep to Stephen Sullivan, who elevated over two Mocs defenders and hauled in the 46-yard gain.

Even against FCS competition, the two connections with the sophomore Baton Rouge area natives highlighted another potential early-season hint at the revamped offense fans can expect to see under new coordinator Matt Canada.

“I’ve been watching LSU since my ninth-grade year in high school, and I’ve never seen ’em take this many shots,” Sullivan laughed. “We were gonna take whatever the defense gave us. If we would’ve bailed, we would’ve ran it. If they came down, we would throw it over their head. And that’s exactly what we did.”

LSU Mike the Tiger

LSU enters 2017 at No. 12 in the preseason coaches’ poll (Jerit Roser, DatBoot.com).

LSU enters the fast-approaching 2017 football season with high hopes, as always, and a No. 12 ranking in the nation.

But the Tigers’ ability to reach lofty goals will hinge heavily on a thus-far unproven, albeit talented, group of underclassmen stepping into larger roles.

Jerit Roser and Mark Clements discuss key story lines to watch in the podcast below — from expectations for the offense under new coordinator Matt Canada, the potential of the offensive line, which young players they feel are most ready to excel and where the biggest question marks remain.
