If you thought LSU flummoxed Georgia’s defense with pace, here’s a pretty stark confirmation:
Per this unofficial accounting from Cody Worsham, LSU racked up 207 yards on 20 tempo plays: 11 runs for 119 yards, plus 6-of-9 completions for 88 yards from Burrow.
That’s on the coaches, my friends. They simply weren’t prepared to set the defense in a timely manner when LSU went hurry-up. Maybe some of that was a change in the Tigers’ strategy, but it shouldn’t take Smart and Tucker that much time to adjust. Instead, we saw a confused defense that took us back to the fun times of 2013.
This is something that needs to be addressed in the next two weeks, because I’ve got the feeling Dan Mullen is taking notes.
