You can't make this stuff up. Already feeling the heat after a loss to Mississippi State and a lackluster showing vs. Syracuse, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron felt the need to
where it clearly didn’t belong and admitted to "offering suggestions" on how LSU should run its offense in the second half of last week's loss to Troy. This of course after Orgeron brought in highly respected offensive coordinator Matt Canada and told Canada the offense is all yours heading into the season. The offense, while far from smooth, hasn't been that bad (6.4 yards per play). And despite being under constant pressure, quarterback Danny Etling has been serviceable (150.8 QB Rating, 35th nationally). Yet, they (we assume Orgeron), insist on inserting QB of the future Myles Brennan at seemingly inopportune times. Add it all up and voila, a home loss to a Sun Belt team. Orgeron now claims he won't intervene with Canada who we'd love to hear from but won't because LSU coordinators haven't spoken to the media since the preseason. Next up for the Tigers, a trip to Gainesville. Betting markets don't seem deterred by the situation as LSU dropped from +4.5 to +3.
“I wanted to simplify only the shifts in motions. I knew we were going to start two freshmen (offensive) linemen, so I wanted the guys to be in place so we knew how to block them,” Orgeron said. “That's all I've ever done. This is Matt's offense. He runs it. He calls it. He scripts the plays. This is his offense.”
