|So many questions to be answered|
It's going to be that kind of year.
What if, why, where's so-and-so and when?
Those questions will come up a lot for LSU this season, and depending on the answers will determine how the Tigers finish.
I can see LSU going 10-2. I can also see LSU going 7-5.
So many questions.
But a few things I do know.
Jordan Jefferson needs to learn to look off his receiver and be able to find a secondary receiver instead of being determined to throw the ball to where it was first designed to go.
Too many time in the past Jefferson would throw the ball to Terrance Tolliver or Brandon LaFell when they had double coverage on them.
Then a replay would show a tight end, running back or other receiver wide open.
Of course, if Jefferson goes down, the season is toast. Jarrett Lee is not going to lead LSU to any championships and the cupboard is bare after that.
Before Lee stepped on the field, I would rather see Russell Shepard in the Wildcat and have him actually throw the ball once in a while.
For that matter, put Stevan Ridley in the Wildcat.
That may sound strange, but Ridley was actually a very good quarterback at Trinity Episcopal and can throw the football.
Sure, I know the SEC is not Trinity, but I would rather have the ball in Ridley's hands than Lee.
Then again, I think Richard Murphy can operate out of the Wildcat. But the football needs to be in the hands of Shepard and Reuben Randle. It's not that complicated.
Jefferson needs to keep from running the ball and needs to look for Sheppard first, and if he's not open look for Randle or DeAngelo Peterson and then get rid of it.
Gary Crowton can't teach that, but I firmly believe Billy Gonzales will have Jefferson comfortable by the third or fourth game.
I also believe Shepard will be getting the ball out of the backfield quite a bit.
The defense should be even better than last year.
I don't understand Patrick Peterson being on the punt return team.
Sure, Peterson is a great athlete and capable of breaking one.
But, I think you have about 10 of those on the team who don't start on offense or defense.
If Peterson goes down with an injury returning a kick, you have lost one of the best cover guys in the nation.
There are way too many bodies flying around and too much change of direction during a return kick to put someone as valuable as Peterson in harm's way.
You know there will be more pondering and more questions asked as the year goes along.
For Tiger fans, they can only hope the most popular question at the end of the season is "Who expected LSU to be playing for a national championship?"
