I get it. I really do. The only thing I hate is that I wish we could have had a few years of this before everyone started leaving.Can't fault people for moving up. LSU will be fine.
Well, if LSU gets 2005-07 Bo Pellini then absolutely.I get it. I really do. The only thing I hate is that I wish we could have had a few years of this before everyone started leaving.
By the way, I saw a story where LSU could bring back Bo Pelini. Would that be a good thing?
So, a little tweaking to the (my) defensive depth chart with the players currently on the roster...Really surprised we haven't heard from Chaisson yet. Logan, Deculus and Shelvin have confirmed they will return. Defense won't be in too bad shape.
DE: Farrell, Cherry
NT: Shelvin, Ika
DE: Logan, Thomas*
OLB: Brooks, Fonua
ILB: Baskerville, Starks
ILB: Clark, White
CB: Stingley, Ward
SS: Monroe, Lewis
FS: Harris, Hampton
CB: Flott, Jones
That's just the guys on the roster, all of which received significant playing time this season. I expect that the new kids like Roy, Guillory, Gaye, Ricks, Webb, Ojulari, Toles and White will see significant playing time, too. That's going to be a fast defense.
Didnt Nebraska see a resurgence of the old blackshirt defense under Polini?Well, if LSU gets 2005-07 Bo Pellini then absolutely.
He didn't do a bad job at Nebraska. In fact, he has been the best Nebraska HC since Tom Osborne. Of course Bo is not Tom Osborne which is a huge negative for Nebraska fans. Bo also has low tolerance for doing stupid booster stuff, which is also a huge negative for Nebraska fans. As long as he avoids audio recording devices, he should be fine. He's done well at Youngstown and seem to be content with the low key job because it's home and people in Ohio appreciate his vulgar, fiery personality. I have heard Mike Detillier say that O prefers a 4-3 defense over the 3-4, which is exactly what you expect to hear from a former D-Line coach. He also mentioned that O and Pelini are good friends, so this also fits in with O saying that any new hires have to be the right "fit" with the current staff. LSU could do a whole lot worse than Pelini as the DC, IMO.
