The LSU Tigers play in the toughest conference in college football and face off against NFL caliber talent on a weekly basis. When you are preparing for the grind of a tough schedule every week, you need to make sure your team is mentally and physically prepared for the battles on the gridiron. For the Tigers, that means practicing as hard as you are going to play.

The Tigers conduct a “Tiger Attack” drill that has one player running down the sideline while shedding attacking players until they make it through the gauntlet. There are big hits and punishment for the runner, but it instills toughness in the team.

We previously shared video of the team’s first “Big Cat” drill of the season, and now we have video of the “Tiger Attack” drill from a practice session.

Here is video of the drill:

What do you think of the strategy to be so physical during practices? Will it help the team during games or add unnecessary wear and tear to their bodies? Sound off in the comments section and let your opinion be heard.

    Can’t let their boys get soft in the offseason.

    As a Gamecocks fan, this is the intensity all teams should have all year long.
    Go hard or go home.

    That’s complete garbage. I remember doing these in middle school and high school. The worst injury suffored that i can remeber is getting a foot to the groin as you were pancaking someone. These drills are designed to make people keep pushing when they are tired until the reach their goal(tackling dummy)
