The LSU Tigers are known for playing smash-mouth football the wears down opponents via a physical running game. While new coordinator Cam Cameron won’t change that blue-collar attitude, reports out of LSU’s practices indicate that he’s experimenting with varying things up and quickening the pace, changes that have been received well by the players.
Senior fullback JC Copeland talked about the new offense to The Advocate:
Last year, everybody knew we were going to run, but my thing was, ‘Yeah, but can you stop us?’ We’re still going to do what we do, but we’re doing a lot more stuff, and it won’t be as predictable. You’ll see — it’ll be a lot different how people will play us.
Quarterback Zach Mettenberger also shared his thoughts:
We’re going to present ourselves differently. But honestly, it’s going to be the same LSU hard running game, with a lot of passes built off of that. Hopefully we’ll be less predictable.
Last year at times, a certain formation would only be a certain play. This year, we have six or seven plays in that formation. He’s got a list of plays for each guy that is their go-to play. He’s definitely trying to mix it up.
The Tigers and their new-and-improved offense will be taking on the TCU Horned Frogs at AT&T Stadium on Agust 31st.
