    How can this happen at a top tier school like LSU? This is beyond dumpter fire bad.

    The tired and out of shape part I especially don't get. Did Tommy Moffit forget strength and conditioning all of a sudden?

    This is disheartening. Interestingly, it’s either tone-deafness, revenge, or just pure honesty, but he just threw the entire coaching staff under the bus.

    Not necessarily disagreeing, but, UCLA ran a similar defense to Clemson’s 2019 NC game defense. Crowd the line with 3 down and blitz from all over the place and hope the Qb can’t make a decision quickly enough. It even worked against Burrow a bit in that game. It’s tough to tell who to block when you have no idea who’s coming presnap. BUT, not a full excuse. They need to be able to pick up blitzes; it’s part of the game. And Peetz was a bit late in adjusting to the scheme.

    About what to do or who too block. How long has he been playing football ? Not being in shape that is his fault !!

    I think Ed hired young kids that are not ready to be on their own. There will be some growing pains and learning on the fly. The players who came to LSU to win now are not happy with the way things are being handled because of past experiences with coaches and seeing the ineptitude that exists in the current situation. They are not confident that these young guys know what they are doing. They probably think they know better than the person giving the directions. This breeds player attitudes which are not what you would want to see as a head coach and I am starting to wonder if Ed is overwhelmed with the situation.

    I also have a feeling that Moffitt isn't dealing with Saban type of players either. I don't think he is to blame. Unless more comes out.

    I had to back up the tape to make sure I heard him correctly. Unbelievable.
