College Football Betting: LSU's inability to block hindering offensive improvement

09.26.2017     09:07 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Remember all of the preseason talk about how fast and dynamic LSU's offense was going to be under newly hired offensive coordinator Matt Canada? Yeah, well, four games into the season, the Tigers look awful similar to previous editions where moving the football is a constant chore. And while 6.27 yards per play looks decent on the surface, keep in mind who LSU has played and who they will play moving forward. BYU's defense allowed over 7 yards per play to Wisconsin. Mississippi State's defense, which held LSU to 7 points and 270 total yards, coughed up 7.48 ypp to Georgia. And Syracuse's defense, while improved, took advantage of key offensive injuries to both Middle Tennessee State and Central Michigan. LSU managed to hit on a few big plays against the Orange but struggled for much of the game. The biggest issue for the Tigers is the offensive line. After rushing for over 6 yards per carry, this year's unit is averaging only 4.7 ypc. Quarterback Danny Etling gets pegged as being another in a long line of sub-par LSU signal callers but if you've watched any of LSU's games you'll notice he's constantly being pressured. Ed Orgeron, who is already taking a lot of heat, appears to have abandoned the notion of his offense being "high flying" and instead proclaimed that they need to return to playing "LSU football" which is ironically one of the reasons Les Miles was run out of town. Troy comes to town this weekend followed by three out of four SEC road games including a trip to Tuscaloosa.


 “We had a technique problem on the offensive line,” Orgeron said. “Syracuse’s defensive line had good technique and our offensive line didn’t. Then, we have to win our one-on-one blocks. We expect our older guys to play better.

“We may have to simplify things,” Orgeron said, adding that offensive coordinator Matt Canada suggested that the Tigers had “too much” in the game plan lately.

“We have to do what our players can do best. We need to run the football,” Orgeron said. “We have to get back to LSU style of football, being physical.”
