LSU Gameday Live 2018 09 22


>>>A PURPLE NIGHT INSIDE OF TIGER STALDIUM TONIGHT WHEN LSU WELCOMES THE BULL DOGS FROM LOUISIANA TECH, TWO UNDEFEATED TEAMS, TWO PERFECT TEAMS WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING IN THE RED ZONE, THE 20th TIME, WITH LSU18- 1 ADVANTAGE. CAN THE TIGERS KEEP THEIR 2018 PERFECT STREAM ALIVE? LETS TALK ABOUT IT NOW ON LSU GAMEDAY LIVE. >>>TRACY TO WIN IT FOR LSU. KICK ALL THE WAY AND IT IS DEAD CENTER. >>IT WAS A PERFECT 42-YARD FIELD GOAL CELEBRATED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY LAST SATURDAY NIGHT. TRACY’S PARENTS HAD THEIR OWN PARTY AS THEIR SON SLIT THE UPRIGHTS. IN DALLAS, OHIO STATE WAS GETTING SET TO FACE TCU, A ROAR FROM BUCKEYE FAITHFUL, WATCHING THE TIGERS WIN BOWING THEIR FORM– KNOWING THEIR FORMER QUARTERBACK LED THE OFFENSE TO TOP-10 RED VICTORY IN THE SEV, WABIG– SEC, A BIG-TIME CELEBRATION FOR THE TIGER WHOSE ARE BACK HOME FOR THE SECOND TIME OF THE SEASON, WHERE WE ARE, OUR MREGS TOOR WELCOME YOU TO L– PLEASURE TO WELCOME YOU TO LSU GAMEDAY LIVE. I AM VICTOR, EMILY DICKSON WILL JOIN US SHORTLY AND WILL TALK TO COACH O AND TAKE YOU INSIDE TIGER VILLAGE. I KNOW YOU WERE ON THE ROAD LAST WEEK, WHAT A FANTASTIC ENVIRONMENT, THE WAY LSU PLAYED IN THE FIRST TRUE SEC ROAD GAME AND GET THE WIN. ERIC, LET ME DIRECT TO YOU, GO ON THE ROAD, HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT, AUBURN WITH A LAUD OF CONFID– LOT OF CONFIDENCE, BUT THE TIGERS LOOKING TO LIVE UP TO THE HYPE IT HAD ALL PRESEASON LONG. >>AS FAR AS LSU DEFENSE, THEY SET THE TONE EARLY WITH THE QUICK INTERCEPTION. ALL SEASON LONG, SEVEN DAK AWAYS– TAKE AWAYS, THE OFFENSE GIVEN UP NOTHING. THAT IN ITSELF HAS HELPED LSU STAY AHEAD AND COME ON TOP IN THE BALL GAMES, ESPECIALLY TOP- 10 TEAMS. >>NO DOUBT THE NURSEFORTCEPTION SILENCED THE CROWD. LSU OFFENSE TOOK ADVANTAGE. GORDY DAVID, STATISTICLY LOOKS STRANGE, LSU IN THE SEC RANKED LAST IN TOTAL YARDS, LAST IN RUSHING YARDS PER GAME, LAST IN PASSING YARDS PER GAME BUT YOU WENT FROM 25 TO 6th IN THE COUNTRY, 3 AND 0 WITH WINS AGAINST TOP-10 TEAMS. DOES IT HAVE MORE TO DO WITH THE FACT THEY ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE PLAYS WHEN THEY HAPPEN? MORE EFFICIENCY CERTAIN TIMES THEY CALL? HOW DO YOU LOOK AT THAT STAT AND THEN LOOK AT THE SUCCESS THEY ARE HAVING? >>GREAT QUESTION, I THINK WHAT YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT IS WHO HAS LSU PLAYED? MIAMI, THAT HAS A FANTASTIC DEFENSE, THEY PLAYED AUBURN, THAT WE SAID BEFORE THE GAME, TOP-5 DEFENSE, TOP-5 DEFENSIVE FRONT. AND ALSO HOW THE GAMES HAVE PLAYED OUT, RIGHT? JACOB AGAINST MIAMI, THEY TOOK THE AIR OF THE FOOTBALL SECOND HALF. SOUTHEASTERN, NOW WE KNOW THE TRUTH, THEY DIDN’T WANT TO SHOW ANYTHING. THEY PLAYED A VERY GOOD AUBURN TEAM ON THE ROAD. SO, I AM REALLY NOT THAT BIG ON STATISTICS, JACOB, AFTER THREE GAMES, BECAUSE EVERYBODY ELSE HAS KIND OF PLAYED ONE TEAM AND TWO RENTAL WINTS. — WINS. >>THE LAST THING YOU WANTED WAS THE TURNOVER AGAINST MIAMI. HUGE LEAD IN THE SECOND HALF, YOU DON’T WANT A PICK 6, GET THEM BACK IN THE GAME. A SOUTHEASTERN TEAM, YOU JUST WANTED TO SURVIVE, GET A WIN, PROTECT YOUR QUARTERBACK. NOW THE BOOK IS OPEN, YOU SHOWED EVERYTHING AGAINST AUBURN, OPEN AND DRIVE, A QUARTERBACK RUN, WILD CAT, HALF BACK SCREEN, FOUR WIDES, THE BOOK IS OPEN. YOU WILL CONTINUE TO SEE THIS LSU OFFENSE GROW, AND THE MAJOR THING FOR ME, AS ERIC MENTIONED, ZERO TURNOVERS. YOU TAKE CARE OF THE FOOTBALL, EVERY POSSESSION ENDS IN A KICK, YOU WILL LIVE TO PLAY ANOTHER DAY. >>AS WE MENTIONED THIS TEAM IS PERFECT IN THE RED ZONE AGAINST ANOTHER TEAM THAT AS WELL, LOUISIANA TECH, ONE OF THE BEST STORIES TO ME HAS BEEN WATCHING TRACY, NOT ONLY WHAT HE DOES ON THE FIELD, LETS TALK NATION AL REACTION WITH WHAT HE HAS BEEN DOING FOR THE TIGERS. I STARTED THINKING IF YOU WERE A BASEBALL PLAYER AND WALK UP SONG, HE IS ICE ICE BABY OR COLD AS ICE. ICE IN HIS VEINS, GLAD TO SEE YOU ARE HEALTHY AFTER IT LOOKED LIKE YOU PULLED A HAMMY IN THE CELEBRATION END ZONE. >>IT WAS GOOD, I HAD TO STRETCH, REALLY EXCITED. TRACY COMING FROM ASSUMPTION COLLEGE, GUYS, WE HAVE ALL PLAYED AT DIFFERENT LEVELS, IN FRONT OF 500 PEOPLE. I LOOKED AT IT, LOOKED LIKE COUNTRY DAY, MY FRENLD, WITH THE COACHES– FRIEND, WITH THE COACHES. HE PLAYED IN FRONT OF 85,000 NO PROBLEM. >>COLE TRACY HAS DONEEN UNBELIEVABLE JOB AS– DONE AN UNBELIEVABLE JOB AS A PLACE KICKER, TO MISS A FIELD GOAL EARLY AND COME BACK AND KICK 3, AWESOME. GORDY, YOU CAN ATTEST TO THIS. BEING ON THE SIDELINE, EVERYBODY WAS CELEBRATING ALREADY. WHEN THE KICK GOT SQUARED UP AND THE COACHING STAFF DIDN’T TRY TO GET MORE YARDS, THEY WERE TRYING TO CENTER THE 42- YARD KICK, EVERYBODY WAS CELEBRATING BEFORE HE KICKED IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE THAT MUCH CONFIDENCE IN TRACY, WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES. LAST YEAR TALKING GOING FOR IT ON EVERY 4th DOWN BECAUSE YOU COULDN’T KICK FIELD GOALS, NOW IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD ON A 42 YARDER. >>YOU MENTIONED GOING FOR IT, THAT WILL TRANSITION AS WE TALK QUARTERBACK JOE BURROW AND WHAT HE IS DOING, BY HIS OWN ADMISSION HE DENADE PLAY WELL LAST WEEK, MAYBE STATISTICS DON’T TELL ALL THE STORY. THE NUMBER OF PASSES HE MITSZED AND HE THOUGHT– MISSED AND HE THOUGHT THEY WERE OFF TARG LT. 15 FOR 44– TARGET, 15 FOR 44. THE LAST DRIVE, AUBURN NEVER SEESATHIZE A BALL AGAIN, 4th AND 7th CONVERSION, WHAT I FOUND INTERESTING AND MAYBE THIS IS MORE– NOT BURROW, YOU TELL ME, TELL ME. ON THE THIRD DOWN HE FORCED AUBURN’S DEFENSE TO MAKE A DECISION, GUARD THE MAN OR GET A FLAG. THEY GOT FLAG– THEY WERE THROWING THE BALL ON THE 3rd AND SAEB, MAYBE NOT RUNNING– WHAT DID YOU SEE? >>I THOUGHT THE LAST DRIVE BURROW HAD ULTIMATE MOXIE, NOTHING PHASED HIM, NO MATTER PRESSURE ON THE DOWN, GUYS IN THE POCKET COLLAPSING, HE STOOD TALL AND DELIVERED THE BALL. ONE OF MY BEST AT RIBUTES– ATRICUTEICIZE BURROW SH– ATTRIBUTES FOR BURROW, HIGHS ARE HIGHS. >>FANTASTIC ON THE LAST DRIVE. TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THINGS EARLY IN THE BALL GAME. ERIC MENTIONED EARLIER, GRANT WITH THE KEY INTERCEPTION, FROM THE DEFENSIVE SIDE, GIVE ME WHAT YOU SAW. GORDY, YOU WERE ON THE FIELD. IT WAS ELECTRIC. I WANT TO HEAR HOW IT TOOK THE AIR OUT OF THE PLACE. FIRST, THE PLAY, HOW USUAL THAT WAS TO GIVE THE OFFENSE A SHORT FIELD. >>IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WERE PLAYING SOME TYPE OF MAN-TO- MAN, HIS RECEIVER, HIS RESPONSIBILITY JUST RAN AN OUTSIDER OUT. WHATEVER AUBURN SAW, THOUGHT HE WOULD BE WIDE OPEN AND MAKE A PLAY. BUT NO,DALE STAYED WITH THE ASSIGNMENT, WAS ABLE TO HOP IN FOR EASY INTERCEPTION. >>HE WAS ABLE TO PLAY FIGHT COVERAGE ON THE SLOT, IN THAT CASE HE JUMPED THE OUT ROUTE AND STOOD HIM THROUGH BEHIND THE WIDE RECEIVER, GREAT PLAY BY DELPIT. LSU DEFENSIVELY MADE IT THROUGH THE TOUGH TIMES, AUBURN GOT UP 21-10, WERE RUNNING TEMPO, WERE OUT OF GAS, THEY DUG DEEP IN THE 4th QUARTER AND FOUND SOMETHING. I THOUGHT THAT WAS A HUGE PART OF THE FOOTBALL GAME, AND AS I SAID ON CST AFTER THE PROGRAM, FOR WHATEVER REASON, AUBURN GOT UP 21-10, GUS DECIDED TO GET OUT OF TEMPO AND SLOW THINGS DOWN AND I AM SORRY, IF YOU ARE A TEMPO TEAM, IF YOU ARE A CORVETTE, LET THE CORVETTE BREATHE. DON’T DRIVE IT 25 MILES AN HOUR. >>WHITLOW WAS THE ONLY RUNNING BACK HAVING ANY SUCCESS AGAINST LSU. WHEN THEY WERE GOING TEMPO, I LOOKED ON THE OTHER SIDELINE, HE WAS ABSOLUTELY GASED. WHEN THEY BROUGHT THE SMALLER RUNNING BACKS, THEY DIDN’T HAVE THE SUCCESS. AUBURN’S TEMPO GOT THEM TIRED AND OUT OF THEIR RHYTHM AS WELL. IT WAS A HOT DAY. >>GREAT GAME PLAN BY DAVE VERANDA, HE WAS ABLE TO STOP THE AUBURN RUNNING GAME BY SENDING 4 AND 5 DEFENDERS. THE DEFENSIVE FRONT, 4, THE 3, WHAT HAVE YOU, 3 + 1, GREAT JOB PLAYING THE RUN. >>YOU ARE RIGHT, THE ONLY THING THAT REALLY GAVE LSU SOME TROUBLE, THE ZONE READ WITH THEM GIVING A BALL TO WILLOW RUNNING UP THE MIDDLE. AS HE GOT GAS, LIKE JACOB MENTIONED, THAT KIND OF SLOWED DOWN. YOU GOT TO DO DIFFERENT THINGS AND SWITCH IT UP WHEN YOU ARE GOING AGAINST A TEAM WHO LIKES TO GO FAST, GET UP TO THE LINE, AND RUN A BUNCH OF PLAYS. >>YOU GOT DELPIT PLAYING, LETS PICK ANOTHER FIELD. GRADY WILLIAMS, GOT TO DEAL WITH THIS GUY. SECOND INTERCEPTION OF THE SEIZE SXN THE 3-GAMES PLAYED, HE WAS TARGETED 6 TIMES. HE ONLY ALLOWED THE GUY TO HAVE A RECEPTION TWICE. LET ME ASK A, WE WILL TALK ABOUT GRADY BUT OFFENSIVE POINT OF VIEW, DELPIT, MONSTER IN WHITE, OTHER SIDE, THERE IS WILLIAMS, HOW DO THEY CHANGE THE OFFENSIVE SCHEME WHERE YOU FIGURE WHAT SIDE WILL I GO TO? >>NOT MANY TIMES DO TEAMS HAVE THREE GUYS LIKE THAT. NFL REVIS, YOU KNOW THAT SIDE OF THE FIELD IS OFF LIMITS, WE WON’T LOOK OVER TO DARRYL REVIS. WITH THE WAY LSU DEFENSE MADE ALL THREE LEVELS, THEY A HAVE GOT GUYS, IT IS TOUGH TO PICK ON ANOTHER GUY. THAT IS WHY KRIGSTION FULTON WAS SO– CHRISTIAN FULTON WAS SO BIG ON GETTING HIM BACK. WE SAW HIM MAKE A PLAY IN THE END ZONE SATURDAY. WHEN YOU HAVE GUYS ALL OVER THE PLACE, YOU CAN’T FICK THON GUY THAT IS NOT AS GOOD AS THE OTHER SIDEFELT >>GOOD ADJUSTMENTS MADE IN THAT GAME EA, RPOs INTO IT R THE BOUNDARY. TEAMS GO WIDE, DEFENSES OVERSHIFT, YOU GET THE NUMBERS YOU WANT. MAN-TO-MAN ON THE CORNER AND ISOLATE ON THE LINE BACKER. GRADUALLY, I DON’T KNOW IF BY DESIGN, WE SAW DEVON WHITE IN THE BOUNDARY AND GRADY WILLIAMS IN THE BOUNDY AFTER FULTON WENT DOWN. THAT SHUT THAT DOWN. >>ABSOLUTELY. GRADY WILLIAM HUSBAND A OF A DAY OUT THERE– WILLIAMS HAD A OF A DAY OUT THERE. IT IS HARD TO TAKE A GUY LIKE THAT, HIS TECHNIQUE IS SO GOOD, HE IS SO SOUND THAT EVEN WHEN YOU WANT TO GO THAT WAY, YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU HAVE THE NUMBERS, YOU DON’T. >>IF I AM OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR, DON’T THROW A 29. FIND SOMEBODY ELSE, NOT NUMBER 29 TO GO TO. >>WHEN WE TALK LSU ANSWERING THE FIRST TURNOVER, THAT DEVON WHITE TACKLE WAS A SUNDAY TACKM. I COKNOW WE WILL– TACKLE. I KNOW WE WILL TALK MORE ABOUT HIM. MY GRACIOUS, THE STOP HE MADE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. SPORTS TICKER, WE WILL FOCUS ON THESE TIGERS A YEAR FROM NOW. LSU THIS WEEK MAKING OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE 2019 SEASON SCHEDULE FOR THE LSU TIGERS, WE TAKE A LOOK, THEY WILL OPEN WITH GEORGIA SOUTHERN AND THEN THE HOME AND HOME, THIS WILL BE WITH THE LONG HORNS AT TEXAS BEFORE NORTHWESTERN STATE AND THEY OPEN AGAINST A TEAM WE HAVEN’T SEEN IN A WHILE IN VANDERBILT. >>YOU LOOK AT THE GAME AGAINST TEXAS, L SHGS U FANS EXCITED. STORY LINE WITH HERMAN COURTED WITH LSU, SHOULD BE A FUN GAME. >>YOU CAN TALK SCHEDULING AND WHO YOU HAVE NONCONFERENCE BUT I AM OKAY WITH HAVING VANDERBILT INSTEAD OF GEORGIA AS THE EAST OPPONENT. I KNOW WE WANT TO SEE GEORGIA IN TIGER STADIUM AND EVERYTHING WITH THAT, BUT IT IS OKAY TO MAKE A TRIP TO VANDER BIMENT. >>– VANDERBILT. >>LIKE THE SKEJING, TWO OPEN DATES SHGS– SCHEDULE, TWO OPEN DATES, FLORIDA WEEK SIX, LSU I THINK FAVORED AT TEXAS NEXT YEAR. VANDERBILT IS BETTER BUT A GAME LS UKS SHOULD WIN. GET TO THE FIRST SIX AND AS HE SAID, TAKING GEORGIA OUT OF VANDERBILT, THE SCHEDULE SETS UP MUCH BETTER FOR LSU. >>BYE SEPTEMBER 28 AND END OF THE SEASON BEFORE ALABAMA, YOU ARE AT ALABAMA AT OLE MISS AND CLOSE AT HOME. ARKANSAS AND TEXAS A&M, SHOULD BE A FUN SCHEDULE. WE HAVE MANY MORE GAMES TO TALK ABOUT WITH 18, INCLUDING TONIGHT. LOUISIANA TECH, COMING BACK TO BATON ROUGE, WE WILL FOCUS ON THE BULL DOGS BUT WHEN WE COME BACK, THE TIGER FILM ROOM, BREAK DOWN MORE LSU OFFENSE, THE SUCCESS THEY HAD ON THE ROAD GETTING THE WIN WITH AUBURN AND GORDY TALKS TO VERGE OSBERRY, FORMER GREAT AND NOW ATHLETIC DIRECTOR, LOTS TO COME WITH LSU GAME DAY LIVE. >>>WELCOME BACK, WE ARE GETTING YOU SET FOR TONIGHT’S BALL GAME BETWEEN LOUISIANA TECH AND LSU, YOU TALKED ABOUT WITH THE NEW OFFENSIVE SCHEME WITH BURROW WE MAY SEE DIFFERENT FORMATIONS, YOU SAY THEY HELD BACK SOME. DID YOU SEE MORE OF THAT AGAINST THE TIGERS IN AUBURN IN TERMS OF DIFFERENT SCHEMES THAT MAYBE WE WERE LOOKING FOR AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON? >>ABSOLUTELY. >>YOU DPIES? >>ABSOLUTELY. >>FIRST DRIVE YOU SAW 6-7 DIFFERENT THINGS. FOR ME, IMPROVED 3rd DOWNS, DID SO MANY THINGS BECAUSE OF ALL THE FORMATIONS AND PERSONNELS YOU THREW AT AUBURN. >>THE BIGGEST THING WHEN WE LOOK AT THE FILM ROOM TODAY IS THIS, WE KNEW THAT THEY WERE GOING TO HOLD BACK, AS WE TALKED ABOUT. THE WAY THE GAMES PLAYED OUT, THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO SHOW ANYTHING. YOU ALSO KNEW THAT HOLDING BACK AND RUNNING THIS STUFF FOR THE FIRST TIME AT AUBURN WAS GOING TO HAVE DIFFICULTIES, IT WOULD BE HARD TO EXECUTE. AND YOU WERE GOING TO HAVE SOME INCONSISTENCY. AS WE GO THROUGH THE MILLM ROOM, WEUAL– FILM ROOM, WE WILL POINT OUT THE ADDITION OF JERRY SULLIVAN AS WIDE RECEIVER COACH, PASSING GAME COORDINATOR TO WORK WITH MICKEY JOSEPH. WHEN HE IS IN THERE, YOU TALK ABOUT EXACT ROUTE RUNNING. JACOB, WE SAW IT AT PRACTICE, HE DOES A GREAT JOB. >>YEAH, LOOK IT IS ALL ABOUT REPETITION, JUST KEEP GOING AND GOING AND RUNNING THE SAME ROUTE. EVEN IF IT IS 12 TIMES IN A PRACTICE, INDIVIDUAL ROUTE. IT ALL LOOKS THE SAME. EVERY RECEIVER SHOULD LOOK THE SAME WHEN THEY RUN THE SAME ROUTE. >>LETS GO RIGHT TO THE FILM ROOM. WE SEE RP SHGSs AT PLAY ACTION LOOK, JUSTIN JEFFERSON TURNING INTO HECK OF A WIDE RECEIVER. >>BEEN SO MANY. ON THIS PLAY, ANOTHER YOUNG RECEIVER, JUSTIN JEFFERSON STEPPING UP. RIGHT HERE YOU KIND OF SEE THE GHOST OF MATT CANADA IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS PLAY WITH THE SPEED SWEEP ACTION HERE. IT SEEMS LIKE, TO ME, THERE WAS MISCOMMUNICATION ON AUBURN SIDE OF THE FIELD. THE CORNER SQUATS, THE SAFETIES TOO FAR AWAY TO MAKE A PLAY ON THE BALL, IT LEAVES A VOID IN THAT PART OF THE FIELD. HONESTLY THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A TOUCHDOWN, IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A TOUCHDOWN. I DON’T WANT TO SAY POORLY THROWN, BUT NOT AS WELL OF THROWN A BALL AS BURROW COULD HAVE THROWN. JUSTIN JEFFERSON HAS TO MAKE A SPECTACULAR CATCH ON A SIDELINE TO KEEP ONE FOOT IN BOUNDS, THEY WILL CONTINUE OO UTILIZE YOUNG RECEIVERS AND DO WELL OFFENSIVELY MOVING FORWARD. >>WHEN I THINK STEVE ENDSMINGER, FIRST I THINK PLAY ACTION AND USING THAT ON FIRST DOWN AND THEY THREW THE BALL MORE THAN THEY RAN THE FOOTBALL ON FIRST DOWN, AND WE SAW THAT IN THE FOOTBALL GAME. THEN THE EYE CANDY, LOT OF EYE CANDY AND CONFUSED SECONDARY, PLAY NUMBER TWO, IT WAS A TOUCHDOWN PASS, TAKE US THROUGH THIS. >>A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY THIS IS THEIR FAVORITE PLAY OF THE GAME, I WATCHED THIS AND REWATCHED THIS PLAY SEVERAL TIMES AND WONDER WHAT IS GOING THROUGH BURROW’S HEAD, I NEED TO THROW THIS BALL. WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING TOO DEEP ON DEFENSE, THE ONLY VOID IS REALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. HE KNOWS THAT IS WHERE HE NEEDS TO GO. ACTUALLY, AUBURN LINEBACKER PLAYS IT REALLY WELL, BUT WHAT BURROW DOES A GOOD JOB OF DOING, HE DOESN’T THROW WHERE THE RECEIVER IS, HE THROWS IT % WHERE HE IS GOING TO BE. THAT IS JUST OUTSIDE THE OUT REACHED HANDS OF THE AUBURN DEFENSEER. THE– DEFENDER. THE CATCH OF THE DAY BY DILLAN WAS GREAT, FOR A TOUCHDOWN. ANOTHER YOUNG RECEIVER WHO SHOWED UP SATURDAY. >>THE END ZONE CUT, WHAT I LIKED IS BURROW KEPT THE FOCUS, DREW THE SAFETY OFF THE HASH AND THE LINER BACKER, OVER PURSUED DILLAN CAME ON THE BACK SIDE. LOT OF BALL. WAS A GREAT JOB OF LOOKING HIM OFF FROM BURROW. LETS GO TO YOUR PLAYS, NUMBER 3, D ANDERSON HAS BEEN A NICE STORY RIGHT NOW FOR LSU, BEAUTIFUL BIG 3rd DOWN CONVERSION. >>HE WASN’T THE RECEIVER WE WERE TALKING IN THE OFF SEASON, HE CONTINUED TO GET BETTER EACH WEEK. I THOUGHT LAST WEEK WAS HIS BEST WEEK. AUBURN BRINGS FIVE GUYS, SPY THE RUNNING BACK, KIND OF THEIR COMMON THEME FOR THE GAME. BURROW GETS PRESSURE A LITTLE FROM THE RIGHT SIDE HERE BUT HE STANDS TALL, DELIVERS A PERFECT PASS TO ANDERSON, ANDERSON IS SUPER ATHLETIC TO STAY IN BOUNDS, REEF OVER FOR THE FIRST DOWN. WE WENT TO A PRACTICE ONE DAY WHERE THEY RAN THUT OUT ROUTE, HAD TO BE 7 TIMES A GUY, JUST KEPT GOING OVER AND OVER BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO DRIFT. IF YOU DRIFT ON AN OUT ROUTE IT GIVES THE CORNER BACK ROOM TO UNDERCUT YOU AND INTERCEPT THAT BALL. IT WAS A GREAT ROUTE TO STAY ON THE LINE, GO STRAIGHT TO THE FIRST DOWN MARKER BY ANDERSON. >>LETS GO TO THE LAST ROUTE, IT WAS AS BIG AS A TOUCHDOWN PASS. 4th AND 7, LSU GETS STUFFED ON THE ZONE READ WITH BURROW, NEED TO CONVERT, THEY GO TO SULLIVAN ON THE SLANT. >>I SAID COMMON THEME, AUBURN BRINGS 5, SPIES THE RUNNING BACK, THIS ENDS UP BEING A CLEAN POCKET. NICK PICKS UP THE BLITZER, GREAT JOB. INSTEAD OF THE LINE BACKER SPYING NICK GOING INTO COVERAGE, HE TRIES TO ADD INTO THE BLITZ AND BRING 6. WHAT IT DOES IS MAKES A VOID IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD FOR BURROW TO STEP UP AND THROW IT TO SULLIVAN FOR THE BIG CONVERSION. SO IT IF THAT LINE BACKER DRIFTS INTO COVERAGE, THE WINDOW IS NOT THERE. HE MADE THE DECISION TO BRING 6, THAT IS WHY THE WINDOW WAS THERE, GREAT JOB BY BURROW DELIVERING THE FOOTBALL. >>JACOB, YOU AND I TALKED ABOUT IT BEFORE THE SEASON, I HAD A CHANCE IN 1988 TO SIT IN THE WIDE RECEIVER ROOM WITH JERRY SULLIVAN, TODD GOT HURT, I WAS GOING TO PLAY SPECIAL TEAMS. THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL THIS GUY HAS, TO BE GET OFF THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE IN THE RELEASE, THE ABILITY TO GET SEPARATION AND RUN CLEAN ROUTES, I STILL KNOW THE ONLY ROUTE THAT YOU DON’T BREAK ON A 45 AND ROLL INTO IS AN OUT ROUTE. WHEN LARRY FITZGERALD ENDORSES YOU, THAT IS PRETTY GOOD IN MY BOOK. >>LOOK, I TOLD YOU AS WELL, I HAD HIM FOR THE SENIOR BOWL, HE IS THE RECEIVER COACH, 49ERS DIDN’T HAVE A RUNNING BACK COACH. HE WAS COACHING BOTH GROUPS, RECEIVERS AND RUNNING BACKS. HE NEVER HAD TO COACH RUNNING BACKS IN HIS NFL CAREER, BUT HE DID IT FLAWLESSLY, DIDN’T MISS A BEAT. COACHING TWO POSITIONS SENIOR BOWL, LEARNING A NEW PLAY BOOK IN THREE DAYS. >>MICKEY JOSEY SAID IN SEC YOU ARE NOT GOING TO RUN AWAY FROM ANYBODY, ALL THE DBs ARE JUST AS FAST AS YOU ARE, IT IS ABOUT TECHNIQUE. >>YEAH, I MEAN, WHAT SEPARATES GOOD RECEIVERS FROM GREAT RECEIVERS IS ALL ABOUT ROUTE RUNNING, BECAUSE NOW A DAYS, I MEAN, THE DBs ARE JUST AS GOOD AS THE RECEIVERS, SOMETIMES THEY RUN THE ROUTES FOR YOU. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THE TIMING IS RIGHT, YOU RUN CRISP, PRECISE ROUTES TO BE OPEN. >>WIDE RECEIVER PLAYS ON THE RISE, ANOTHER TEST AGAINST LOUISIANA TECH. >>CERT LEADERSHIP WILL BE, WE HEARD FROM THE GUYS THAT– CERTAINLY WILL BE, WE HEARD FROM THE GUYS THAT PLAY, LETS TALK TO HEAD COACH, ED ORGERON, WHEN WE COME BACK WE WELCOME EMILY DICKSON TO THE PROGRAM AND SHE GETS TIN>>>WELCOME BACK TO LSU GAMEDAY LIVE, GETTING YOU SET FOR TIGERS AND LOUISIANA TECH, WE MENTIONED HEAD COACH EDGNOME, FIRST TIME SINCE 2015LSU HAS DONE THAT, COACH O, 12 AND 4 AFTER THE BIG WIN ON THE ROAD TO GET A WIN, HIS TIGERS SHOT UP TO NUMBER 6 IN THE COUNTRY. WHAT DOES HE THINK ABOUT THE WIN OVER AUBURN? EMILY DICKSON JOINS US AS SHE GOT THE FINAL WORD WITH THE TIGER HEAD COACH. >>AFTER A BIG WIN OVER AUBURN IOWA SAID ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES– ONE OF HAD BIGGEST WIN, WHAT WERE THE KEYS GOING THROUGH PRACTICE THIS WEEK TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT FOCUS WAS THERE? 92 IDENTIFYING THE THINGS WE NEED– >>IDENTIFYING THE THINGS WE NEED TO GET BETTER AT, THERE ARE A LOT OF AREAS WE KIM PROVE ON, OBVIOUSLY, I THOUGHT WE HAD ONE OF OUR BETTER PRACTICES OF THE YEAR TUESDAY, GUYS CAME OUT SPIRITED, GOT A LOT OF THINGS DONE. TODAY WAS A 3rd DOWN DAY, I AM PLEASE WOULD THE WEEK SO FAR. >>THIS LOUISIANA TECH TEAM WENT TO SOUTH CAROLINA LAST YEAR AND LOST BY 1 POINT ON A FIELD GOAL IN THE LAST SECOND. ALSO TWO YEARS AGO TOOK ARKANSAS DOWN TO THE WIRE. WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE SKIP CLUB THAT IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN MOST NON-POWER 5 TEAMS >>THEY ARE COMPETITIVE, WELCOME COACHED, HAVE A LOT OF ATHLETES THEY WILL PLAY IN THE NFL, THAT COULD MATCH UP WITH LSU AND SEC TEAMS WILL BE REEDY TO GO. >>YOUR TEAM IS CURRENTLY 3 AND 0 RIGHT NOW, AND VAULTED UP TO NUMBER 6 IN THE RANKINGS, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT YOU THINK CONTRIBUTED TO THAT TYPE OF START? >>YOU KNOW, THOSE RANKINGS AND STUFF, THAT IS FOR AFTER THE SEASON, WE KNOW WE 3 AND 0. THAT IS OUR ONLY GOAL, THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS WE NEED TO GET BETTER AT BUT WE ALL PROUD OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM, WE PLAYED VERY GOOD TEAMS IN THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR BUT WE HAVE LONG WAY TO GO. >>YOU ARE VERY GOOD AT TELLING THIS TEAM AND STAFF TO BLOCK THE NOISE OUT, LSU FIRST THREE GAMES WAS AN UNDERTOG AND NOW EVERYBODYING IS LOOKING AT THE TIGERICIZE ONE OF THE BEST– TIGERS AS ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN THE COUNTRY. HOW DO THEY STAY FOCUSED? >>THE WAY WE PRACTICE AND PREPARE, WHETHER PEOPLE TALKING GOOD ABOUT US, BAD, IT DOESN’T MATTER OUTSIDE THE ROOM. IT MATTERS WHAT WE SAY INSIDE THE ROOM, FUNDAMENTALS, PLAYING, MIND SET. THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT MATTER. >>YOU DESCRIBE THE GAME VERSES AUBURN AS VERY PHYSICAL AND SOME GUYS CAME AWAY WITH BUMPS AND BRUISES, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR INJURY REPORT? ARE THERE GUYS EXPECTED NOT TO PLAY VERSE LOUISIANA TECH? >>NOT NOW, EVERYBODY HEALTHY, ROAD TO GO, THERE IS A GUY STILL WORKING TREATMENT THROUGHOUT THE WEEK, AND IT WILL BE SOME GAME-TIME DECISION BUT RIGHT NOW I EXPECT TO HAVE EVERYBODY. >>WINNING COMES FIRST AND FOREMOST, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE TEAM AND YOU THINK YOU ARE ABUT TO GET TO THE HEART OF SEC PLAY, WHAT ARE ONE OR TWO THINGS YOU ARE LOOKING TO TURN THE CORNER ON? >>CONTINUE TO IMPROVE THE OFFENSIVE LINE PLAY. I THING WE MADE OUR BIGGEST JUMP THIS WEEK, USE RECEIVERS, SPREAD THE BALL AROUND, THROW THE BALL TO TIGHT END SOME MORE, ON DEFENSE, CONTINUE TO STOP THE RUN AND TACKLE WELL, COST TURNOVERS. >>READY TO BE BACK IN TIGER STADIUM? >>REE LOVE TIGER– WE LOVE TIGER STADIUMS, GUYS CAN’T WAIT, WE WALK DOWN THE TIGER >>>ON THE WAY BACK MACHINE, 2003, A WEEK AFTER BEATING A RANKED AUBURN TEAM, LSU AND LOUISIANA TECH MET FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1941, MATT FINDING CLAYTON FOR THE TOUCHDOWN PASS EARLY, WENT ON TO THROW 311 YARDS AND 49-10 WIN. NICK SABAN DIDN’T LOOK HAPPY. YOU MAY RECOGNIZE KIRBY SMART AS THE TIGERS GOT THE WIN. NOW 2007, THE NIGHT LES MILES CELEBRATED HIS BIRTHDAY, TIGER DEFENSIVE EFFORT LACKING EARLY. 10-7 LEAD BUT TIGERS BLEW THE DOORS OFF THE JOINT. FLIN UNDER CENTER CONNECTED ON THE TOUCHDOWN PASS TO TERENCE, BUT THE HIGHLIGHT PLAY OF THE NIGHT, COURTESY OF OUR OWN JACOB, THE SPEED, THE POWER, THE WAY HE COVERED 8 SAEB YARDS FOR THE TOUCHDOWN– 87 YARDS FOR THE TOUCHDOWN, 58-10 WAS YOUR FINAL SCORE. THAEN WE GO TWO YEARS LATER TO 2009, A LOT CLOSER IN THIS ONE, TECH WENT DEEP IN THE PLAY BOOK TO PULL OUT THE RUNNING BACK DIRECT SNAP AND JUMP PASS FOR A TOUCHDOWN PLAY. THE BULL DOGS LED BY 3 AT THE HALF. BUT WILLIAMS STORED TWICE IN THE SECOND HALF TO HELP LSU GET A HARD-FOUGHT 24-16 WIN. THE BULL DOGS RETURN TO BATON ROUGE AS WE GET YOU SET FOR KICKOFF AFTER 6:00 TONIGHT HERE INSIDE TIGER STADIUM BEHIND US, WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY, TO LSU GAMEDAY LIVE. MY PLAYER DAYS INVOLVED BASKETBALL, BIG MAN SYNDROME, POINT GUARDS WANT TO PLAY INSIDE. YOU HAVE POINT GUARD SYNDROME, BIG MEN WANT TO SHOOT THE 3. BACK TO THAT NIGHT IN 2007, RUNNING BACK SYNDROME? A FULL BACK WANTING TO SHOW HE HAS WHEELS, AGILITY, SPEED? 87 YARDS, WATCH IT AGAIN AS HE DOES IT. >>JACOB HESTER HAS EVERYTHING, HE DIDN’T PICK UP HIS KNEES, HE COULD PROBABLY STRETCH A LITTLE MORE. HOW DO YOU LOOK AT HIM? >>WHEN THAT WIDE OPEN YOU DON’T HAVE TO PICK UP YOUR KNEES, JUST RUN. CLEAR PATH TO THE END ZONE. >>LOUISIANA TECH WAS GOING TO PLAY COVER ZERO THAT ENTIRE GAME, HE BROKE THAT FIRST LEVEL, YOU WERE GOING TO BE GONE. AS A GUY 4 YARDS IN A CLOUD OF DUST, I DIDN’T GET A CHANCE TO DO THAT OFTEN. THERE WASN’T ANY CHANCE. >>THE EYES THAT THING YOU SAW THAT AHEAD OF YOU TO GO WHAT A GREAT PLAY ON A BIG NIGHT FOR THE TIGERS. THIS YEAR’S TEAM, TONIGHT’S BALL GAME, LOUISIANA TECH COMES IN UNDEFEATED, MORE IMPORTANTLY WE TALK WE KNOW THEIR COACH, I KNOW YOU WILL TALK ABOUT HIM BUT THEY HAVE GOTTEN TO THE RED ZONE AND THEY HAVE BEEN PERPHIC AS WELL. >>THEY ARE VERY GOOD ON OFFENSE, SKIP HAS HAD A TREMENDOUS CAREER, ESPECIALLY ON OFFENSIVE SIDE OF THE FOOTBALL. HE HAS HAD THE SAME OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR TWEBL YEARS, I BELIEVE, TODD FITCH HAS BEEN WITH HIM, SUCCESSFUL IN CONNECTICUT, EAST CAROLINA, TOOK SOUTH FLORIDA JOB AND IT WAS A TOUGH SPOT AFTER JIM LEVITT LEFT, A LITTLE MESSY. HE HAS BEEN IN RUSTEN FOR SIX YEARS, ALWAYS READ THE FOOTBALL FIELD, QUARTERBACKS ALWAYS ACTIVATED IN THE RUN GAME. WHEN YOU BREAK THEM DOWN ON FILM, LETS START RUNNING GAME. THEY ARE BALANCED. JAMAR SMITH THE FIRST LOUISIANA TECH QUARTERBACK TO, I THING, BE THE STARTING GUY BACK-TO- BACK SEASONS SINCE 2010. GOOD PASSER BUT VERY ACTIVE WITH HIS FEET. >>AS YOU SEE IN THE NEXT TWO PLAYS, WE FOCUS ON THE RUNNING GAME HERE. ONE WAY TO SLOW DOWN A DPRAT PASS RUSH IS– GREAT PASS RUSH IS SCREEN AND DRAW, USUALLY SCREEN AND DRAW HAPPEN ON 2nd AND LONG SITUATIONS. THIS PLAY HERE, I MEAN IT IS A DRAW PLAY, THEY SET UP FOR A PASS, HAND THE BALL TO THE RUNNING PACK, NOW, SOUTHERN LINEBACKER HAS A CHANCE TO MAKE A PLAY IN THE HOLE BUT GETS JUKEED OUT OF HIS SHORTS AND IT HIS RUNNING BACK TOO FAST FOR VB TO CATCH HIM. HE GOES INTO THE END ZONE. WE WON’T SEE TOO MUCH OF THAT FROM DEVON WHITE. THAT IS DEVON WHITE, CLEARLY HE CAN MAKE THAT TIME OF PLAY. TO SLOW DOWN THIS PASS RUSHER, WE WILL SEE DRAWS AND SCREENS. >>I THINK IS A GOOD TEST, LSU HAS TO PLAY WELL TO BEAT LOUISIANA TECH BUT NEXT WEEK THEY GET JORDAN TOWN, OLE MISS, A DUAL THREAT QUARTERBACK, YOU HAVE GOT TO COUNT FOR JAMAR SMITH IN THE RUN GAME. >>EE HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE, WE HAVE– WE HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE, WE HAVE SEEN THE ZONE READ PLAY, IT IS ALL PLAY RESPONSIBILITY. SOMEBODY HAS TO TACKLE TO DIVE, SOMEBODY HAS TO ACCOUNT FOR THE QUARTERBACK, AND SOMEBODY HAS TO ACCOUNT FOR THE PITCH, RIGHT? HERE JAMAR DOES A GREAT JOB OF READING THAT THE GUY WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO TAKE ME GOES DOWN FOR THE DIVE, SO THEREFORE IT LEAVES A SEEM RIGHT OPEN TO GO AROUND THE END. HE HAS SOME SPEED AND RUNNING ABILITY. HE SHOWS IT OFF HERE. BUT LIKE YDZ, WHEN YOU ARE LAYING A TEAM WHO RUNATHIZE ZOED READ, IT IS ALL ABOUT BEING DISCIPLINED. YOU HAVE TO PLAY DISCIPLINED FOOTBALL, KNOW YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES, AND WHEN IT IS TIME TO MAKE THE PLAY, MAKE THE PLAY. >>JACOB, LOUISIANA TECH RETURNS FOUR OF TOP FIVE RECEIVERS FROM A YEAR AGO, WE MENTIONED SMITH WAS A FIRST- YEAR STARTER. THEY STRUGGLED, WENT 7 AND 6, THEY DID BEAT SMU IN THE BOWL GAME AND LOST THREE FOOTBALL GAMES BY LESS THAN SEVEN POINTS. 7-6 WAS A LITTLE MISLEADING. THEY ARE BETTER THROWING THE FOOTBALL BUT IT IS ALL ABOUT JAMAR SMITH’S ACCURACY AS A PASSER. >>SOMETHING HE HAS TO IMPROVE. LAST YEAR HE WAS A LITTLE ERRATIC AND HAS GOTTEN BETTER THIS YEAR. THIS IS A NICE INDIVIDUAL EFFORT BY THE RECEIVER, HE CATCHES THE BALL, BREAKS A TACKLE, SCORES A TOUCHDOWN. BUT IF YOU ARE JAMAR SMITH, THIS BALL HAS TO BE PLACED BETTER, IT HAS TO BE ON THE INSIDE, ON THIS ROUTE. HE THROWS IT TO THE OUTSIDE, GETS AWAY WITH IT. YOU DO THIS AGAINST GRADY WILLIAMS, THAT BALL IS GOING THE OTHER WAY FOR 6 POINTS. SO IF I AM LSU, I HAVE GOT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SMITH’S INACCURACY, SOMETHING HE CONTINUES TO WORK ON. HE HAS BEEN BETTER BUT HE CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE A LITTLE. >>LETS GO TO THE LAST PLAY, AND LOOK A LITTLE ABOUT A SEEM ROUTE. ANY TIME THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A ZONE READ TEAM, LINE BACKERS WILL COUNT IN THE RUN GAME, IT OPENS UP THE MIDDLE OF THE FOOTBALL FIELD. LOUISIANA TECH TAKES ADVANTAGE AGAINST SOUTHERN. >>REALLY LOVE THIS PLAY. WHAT THEY DO IS THEY MOTION THE RUNNING BACK OUT, THAT IS AN INDICATOR. IT INDICATES IT WILL BE MAN COVERAGE WHEN THE LINE BACKER FOLLOWS THE RUNNING BACK OUT INTO THE WIDE. SO WHAT IT DOES, IT OPENS THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD AND ALBERT SMITH, RECEIVER FROM LOUISIANA TECH DOES AN OUTSTANDING JOB OF GETTING OFF THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE, PUTS A MOVE ON THE DEFENSIVE BACK, CREATES SPACE, AND THERE IS THAT VOID ALREADY FROM WHERE YOUR LINE BACKER MOTIONED OUT WITH THE RUNNING BACK. STAY SKINNY IN THE SEEM, IT IS A PITCH AND CATCH, EASY. YOU LIKE TO SEE HIM HOLD ON TO THE BALL AT THE END, HE FUMBLES AND HAS TO JUMP BACK ON. FOR ME, SMITH, THAT IS THE WAY YOU WANT TO TEACH, GETTING OFF THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE AND STAYING SKINNY IN A SEEM ROUTE. >>GREAT BREAK DOWN. LOUISIANA TECH WILL SPREAD THE FOOTBALL FIELD, YOU GOT TO ACCOUNT FOR THE QUARTERBACK, AND I THINK THIS IS A GOOD TEST FOR OLE MISS, NOT THAT THIS IS A GIMME, LSU HAS TO WIN BUT OLE MISS WILL BE SIMILAR THINGS. >>THE FACT LOUISIANA TECH LAST COUPLE YEARS, BOWL APPEARANCES AND WINS, THEY HAVE GOTTEN EXTRA PRACTICES AND THEY HAVE SEEN THE SUCCESS TO TRY TO BUILD WHAT THEY ARE DOING. >>ABSOLUTELY. HE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB, OFFENSIVELY ALWAYS A TOP IN HIS CONFERENCE. >>WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE KICK TONIGHT BETWEEN THE BULL DOGS AND TIGERS. THANKS, AS ALWAYS, FOR THE BREAK DOWN. STILL TO COME, ALL THREE WILL GIVE THEIR KEY FOR THE TIGERS TONIGHT TO IMPROVE ON THE SEASON TO 4 AND 0. WHEN WE COME BACK, EMILY DICKSON REJOINS US AND WILL TAKE US BEHIND US TO SHOW YOU TIGER ONE VILLAGE, THAT IS NEXT ON CST. >>>HOT AND STICKY RIGHT NOW, TEMPERATURE KICKOFF TONIGHT, 81 DEGREES BUT LOOK AT THE HUMIDITY ABOVE 75%, MIGHT FEEL STICKY, A CHANCE OF SCATTERED STORMS AROUND THE AREA, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO BEING INSIDE TIGER STADIUM, THE CHANCE, NEVER. SHOULD BE A GREAT DAY FOR FOOTBALL FOR TIGERS AND BULL DOGS. WHEN WE DO OUR SHOW HERE EVERY HOME GAME, ON TAP THE RAMS, BEHIND US AND BELOW US IS TIGER ONE VILLAGE.

WHEN I THINK ABOUT OUR DEFENSE, THE 1988SEC CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM, ERIC HILL, RON SAFRNO, GREG JACKSON, DARRYL PHILLIPS, CARL DONEBAR, CLINT JAMES, GREAT FOOTBALL PLAYERS AND GREAT PERSONALITIES. THE LEADER OF THAT DEFENSE WAS YOU. WHEN I THINK ABOUT THAT AND HOW YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TURN THIS INTO A SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN ATHLETICS, TALK ABOUT HOW THE LEADERSHIP QUALITIES YOU LEARNED ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD TRANSLATED TO THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT. >>FIRST OF ALL, YOU HAVE TO HAVE GOOD PEOPLE. ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE YOU NAMED WERE GOOD FOOTBALL PLAYERS, LOT MUCH BETTER THAN I WAS, AND THAT IS WHAT HELPED IN THE ADMINISTRATION. WE COME TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE THAT THE TEAM WE PUT TOGETHER, ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT, IS GOOD. THOSE PEOPLE WHO WORKED WITH US, THE COACHES, THE STUDENT ATHLETES, THE SUPPORT STAFFS, THEY MAKE THE LSU ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT. WE ARE THERE TO SUPPORT THEM AS ADMINISTRATORS AND MAKE SURE THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE SUCCESSFUL. >>I THINK THIS GOES UNFORTUNATELY UNSAID, UNTALKED ABOUT, BUT HAVING YOU OVER FOOTBALL IS SO IMPORTANT FOR THOSE STUDENT ATHLETES, TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE PLAYED, YOU HAVE BEEN A STUDENT ATHLETE, YOU HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL, FOR THEM TO HAVE SOMEONE LIKE YOURSELF TO LOOK UP TO, POW IMPORTANT IS THAT RELATIONSHIP? >>VERY IMPORTANT, THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS WITH THE JOB I HAVE NOW, I MISS WORKING IN THE RACKDEMIC CENTER, I GOT TO TOUCH THEM EVERY DAY. NOW WE SEE THEM, THERE IS A PROBLEM OR NATURE OF THAT. I GET TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH THE FOOTBALL PLAYERS, I GO TO PRACTICE A LOT, I WORK OUT A LOT AROUND THEM. I JUST TALK TO THE GUYS, I TRY TO FIGURE FROM MY POINT WHAT PROBLEMS OR ISSUES, I CAN TALK AND TRY TO GET THEM TO THE POINT WHERE THEY ARE VERY SUCCESSFUL HERE. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE THE JOBS WE HAVE, WHEN THEY COME TO LSU, THEY LEAVE HERE AS BETTER PEOPLE. >>LSU HAS GOTTEN OFF TO A 3 AND 0 START. FROM YOUR VANTAGE POINT AND YOU ARE MORE HANDS ON THAN ANYONE, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE INGREDIENTS YOU THING THAT YOU HAVE SEEN THAT HAS BEEN HELPFUL? >>COACH PUT TOGETHER A GREAT STAFF AND THE TEMCRY OF THE– CHEMISTRY OF THE PROGRAM. EACH TEAM EVERY HAS DIFFERENT CHEMISTRY. I THINK HE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB OF GETTING THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN THE RIGHT PLACES, GETTING EVERYBODY TO BUY IN TO THE PROGRAM. WHEN YOU ARE DONE 2000-10 AT AUBURN, A TOUGH– 29-10 AT AUBURN A TOUGH TEAM, LOT OF LEADERSHIP AND SUPPORT WITHIN THE PROGRAM. >>YOU AND I BOTH HAD A CHANCE TO BE ON THE SAME STAFF WITH JERRY SULLIVAN, I WANTED YOUR REACTION BECAUSE 73, IN GREAT SHAPE, BUT YOU NEVER FORGET– YOU HAVE A DAGSUE VIEW MOMENT WHEN YOU SAW– SHGS EJA– DEJA -VU MOMENT. >>THE LAST TIME LOUISIANA TECH BEAT LSU WAS BACK– AND JOKED CULLVEN WAS THE COACH BACK THEN. JERRY, LOOKS GREAT. HE LOOKS GREAT, PERFECT HEALTH, HE WORKS OUT EVERY DAY. ONE OF THE BEST MINDS OF FOOTBALL. >>WHEN LAIRY FITZGERALD RECOMMENS YOU, ONE OF THE GREATEST RECEIVERS TO PLAY IN THE NFL, WE KNOW HOW GOOD HE IS. LETS TALK ONE OF YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WITH FOOTBALL WAS SCHEDULING, LSU PLAYING TONIGHT IN TIGER STADIUM, I THINK A LOT OF TIMES FANS DON’T UNDERSTAND. WE WILL CLAIRIFY SOME OF THAT TODAY. SO, YOUR GOAL IN THE NON- CONFERENCE GAMES, WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO GET DONE? THE NON-CONFERENCE GAMES LIKE TONIGHT, LOUISIANA TECH, RICE, SOUTHEASTERN, WHAT IS IMPORTANT? WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT IT >>ONE THING IS WE TRY AND BALANCE THE SCHEDULE. SO HARD WITH THE SEC SCHEDULE, WE WANT TO PLAY A POWER FIBOPPONENT EVERY YEAR– 5 OPPONENT EVERY YEAR, SOMETIMES WE PLAY TWO POWER 5. NOW SCHEDULE A GOOD MAJOR, YOU SEE THE ARMY, THOSE TYPES OF TEAMS ON YOUR SCHEDULE, USMs, A GOOD QUALITY OPPONENT. THEN YOU PLAY SCF OPPONENT. ONE THING WE WANT TO CONTINUOUSLY DO IS PLAY TEAMS FROM LOUISIANA, I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT TO HELP THOSE INSTITUTIONS OUT, THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENTS OUT. SINCE LSU IS FLAG SHIP INSTITUTION WE SHOULD BE THE LEADER IN THE STATE AND HELP THOSE PROGRAMS. >>I THINK IT IS A GREAT THING TONIGHT, WE FEEL CONFIDENT, THIS GAME WILL BE A SELLOUT. THAT IS HUGE. YOU DON’T GET MANY GAMES LIKE THIS IN WHICH YOU ARE ARE NOT PLAYING A POWER 5 NOT SOLD OUT? >>TWO LOUISIANA SCHOOLS, WE WILL CONTINUE TO SCHEDULE THEM. NEXT YEAR NORTHWESTERN AND THEN LOOKING TO SCHEDULE IN THE STATE OF LOUISIANA, LOUISIANA TECH ON A ROTATING BASIS AND OTHER TEAMS IN THE STATE. >>ONE OF THE THINGS, STAYING WITH THAT THEME THAT ED ORGERON HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB IS WITH THE SATELLITE CAMPS, HE HAS BUILT A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH ALL THE COACHES IN LOUISIANA, IN FACT, HE WENT UP TO SOME OF HIS COACHES THAT HELP COACH AND HIS CAMP AT LOUISIANA TECH. >>VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR STATE, YOU HAVE A LOT OF GOOD FOOTBALL PLAYERS HERE IN THE STATE OF LOUISIANA, NOT ALL HAVE A OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY AN INSTITUTION LIKE YOU AND I DID, LUCE, IT IS GOOD WE SUPPORT THOSE PROGRAMS AND MAKE IT HEALTHY FOR ALL PROGRAMS IN THE STATE OF LOUISIANA. >>ONE OF THE INTERESTING TOPICS AND, HOPEFULLY BRING CLARITY TO THE HOLMAN HOME AND THE NEUTRAL SIGHT GAME. LETS START WITH THE ECONOMICS AND WHAT IS, YOU KNOW, WHAT DO THEY BRING? >>NEUTRAL SIGHT GAMES, DALLAS, FOR INSTANCE, $4.75 MILLION, ANOTHER $200 $300,000, PLAYING A HOME GEAR HERE AROUND $3.5, $3.7 HERE AT HOME. WE UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE PLAY HOME AT HOMES AND NEUTRAL SIGHT GAMES, IT– SITE GAMES, IT IS ALL ABOUT THE PROGRAM, THE BRAND, YOU TALK ABOUT PLAYING MIAMI ON SUNDAY NIGHT. 1 IN 4 HOMES IN THE LOUISIANA REVIEWED THAT GAME, 7 MILLION TV SETS IT WAS ON, HOW GOOD THAT IS FOR THE LSU BRAND, THAT IMPORTANT. WE WANT TO SELL OUR BRAND, SELL OUR BRAND NATIONALLY, IT IS PART OF RECRUITING, RECRUITING STUDENTS TO LSU, DR. ALEXANDER GOES TO DALLAS, 2,000 YOUNG PEA HE MEET WITH WHO WANT TO COME TO LSU. VERY IMPORTANT FOR US AS THE INSTITUTION, TO KEEP LSU GROWING. >>I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE PUT TREMENDOUS VALUE IN THE HOME AT HOME SERIES AS WELL, AND BRINGING QUALITY OPPONENTS IN. WE WILL GET TEXAS THE NEXT YEAR, GOING THERE, COME TO US? >>TEXAS, UCLA, PASADENAARVE THAT SERIES, THEN MAKEY IN– MAYBE THE NEW ORLEANS KRAIR, AND THEN YOU HAVE CLEMSON LEANED UP. SO, ARIZONA STATE, OKLAHOMA. A LOT OF BIG GAMES. WE ARE GOING TO DO A LOTF DIFFERENT THINGS, NEUTRAL SITES AND HOME AT HOME. WE HEARD OUR FANS AND LISTEN TO OUR FANS, ONE THING I TELL OUR FANS, HOME AT HOMES YOU DON’T GET MANY TICKETS. NEUTRAL SITE GAMES, 15-25,000. HOME AT HOMES, IT IS YULSY 5 THOUSAND– USUALLY FIB,000 MAX. >>TIEG– 5,000 MAX. >>TIGER FANS COME TO SEE LSU/LOUISIANA TECH. SO MANY IMPROVEMENTS, ESPECIALLY FACILITY WISE, DOES IT BLOW YOU AWAY WHAT HAS BECOME THE ARMS RACE IN THIS 41 CANC? EVERYBODY IS CONSTANTLY BUILDING NEW STUFF. YOU GOT TO KEEP UP WITH THE JONESS. >>THAT IS THE HARD PART OF OUR BUSINESS. WHEN YOU STOP WHAT YOU DO, WHEN YOU BUILD, YOU NEVER TRY TO STOP. EVERY YEAR YOU TRY TO IMPROVE AND GET BETTER SOME FACILITIES, MANY THINGS THON BOARD. LOOK AT THE SHOOT SOUTH ENDS ON THE STADIUM, BEAUTIFUL. WE HAVE GREAT BATHROOMS, UPGRADE TVs, WE DO IT FOR THE FAN EXPERIENCE SO THE FANS HAVE A PLACE TO ENJOY. MEN’S BASKETBALL, UPGRADE FACILITY THERE, GREAT BASKETBALL COACH, DOING SOME THINGS AT BASEBALL, TENNIS, ALL OF OUR SPORTS, VOLLEYBALL, EVERYTHING YOU SEE WE TRY TO IMPROVE EVERY YEAR.

YOU CAN WIN BALL GAMES BEING 40% BUT CONTINUE TO GROW, GET AROUND 50% TONIGHT AND I THINK YOU WILL BE OKAY. >>ERIC? >>MINE IS TO ESTABLISH THE RUN, BUT NOT JUST FOR THE SAKE OF RUNNING, I WANT TO SEE LOUISIANA TECH PUT 8 GUYS IN A BOX, BITING THEM ON THE RUNS, TO OPEN UP PASSING LANES FOR JOE BURROW TO HIT SOME OF THE RECEIVERS. >>I AM GOING TO CONTINUE WITH THAT, YOU ARE GOING TO GET A 4- 2-5, GET BETTER PASS GAME, PASS PROTECTION, BETTER ROUTES, CATCH THE FOOTBALL, BURROW, YOU WANT MORE ACCURATE TONIGHT. >>THE WEATHER, BELIEND US WIND- – WIND PICKING UP, LITTLE RAIN BUT MIGHT MOVE OUT BEFORE KICKOFF.
