    If that's true you should eat a lot more of it.

    Clowny it's funny that miles tried to hire E for his OC at one time and E said no, but that makes him no good now. LOL. E is a QB and will develop QBs better than what we have had developing them in recent memory, I love listening to him, he is going 4 wide one running back. I think we are moving it on everybody including the crimson tide. I think we stand a good shot of beating everyone we play.

    Red Zone offense was 105th in the nation last year, a change was made, a change had to be made. We will score in the red zone now.

    No one knows until we play the schedule but it would not surprise most if:
    September 2-3
    October 1-2
    November 2-2
    The schedule is tough if everyone builds on last year, but with so many new coaches on that schedule who knows we may win them all. A 5-7 year will not do any favors for the current staff....and Joe!

    Really? We've got a brutal schedule next year.

    i see 5 wins (SELA, LaTech, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Rice)
    I see 2 losses (Georgia, Alabama)
    I see 5 maybes (Miami, Auburn, Florida, State, A&M)

    6 wins would hurt, no doubt. We have no leadership and cohesion.

    8 wins would be a solid year with this schedule and the state of our program versus that of those on our schedule. You win your 5 and then you beat say a State and A&M. Or a mix. Not enthused, but not surprised.

    9+ would be a very good year, because we probably won our 5 we should, and we've cashed in on 4 or more of the maybes/losses.

    We are painfully thin at RB and CB. QB is an unknown. We are a program without an identity right now. We were DBU, with a supposed improved offense. Are both accurate next year?

    Per you:
    U Maybe
    SELA Win
    AU Maybe
    Tech Win
    OM Win
    FU Maybe
    UGA Loss
    MOOU Maybe

    3W - 1L, 4 Maybes; If we split the maybes that’s Les Miles level mediocre, which o can probably survive in year 2, but I’ll be pretty disappointed if we aren’t making progress. Year one was a flat out disappointment. Not interested in replacing Miles with another mediocre coach with a Cajun accent.

    Against SEC defensive lines, when have we see a single back set with four wide's (whether it's true spread or not) work without a dynamic quarterback?

    @LaSalleAve mentions in the first post of this thread "if they can find a center" being one of the keys of the offense. If you're seeing a true spread attack from LSU along with wider splits on the line...all the while looking for a guy to call the blocking schemes as the team is learning a new style attack...I'm lost trying to see what you're seeing.

    What's your question. Or are you just implying we don't have a dynamic qb.

    Our hc contradicts himself about what offense he wants in the very same sentence half the time. He wants to run the 'USC offense' . Then says he wants to run the spread with a dual threat qb. He almost lost Brennan trying to nab yalls commitment in the 11th hour last year. Hes an emotional rube who doesn't have a real system. Just an idea of plays in his swollen head.
    I do like Ensminger however. But he's not someone to keep Oeaux out of the offense. Which is why Canada is gone. And that's a bad omen if history is any indication.
