LSU safety Grant Delpit speaks on LSU Tigers Defense and New Offense
Safety Grant Delpit praises defense and new offense.
Coming into any season with a change from normal standard is something that can make players apprehensive, because why fix what is broken. LSU finished 10-3 last season, playing in the Fiesta bowl, but that was no enough to satisfy the Tigers –nor should it be.
The LSU Tigers came into this season with same style from last year on the defensive side of the ball, but changed their tendencies offensively with the addition of the spread. Their season opener was against the Georgia Southern Eagles and defense play their usual smash mouth the entire game.
The Eagles scored a grand total of three points and 97 yards of offense on LSU’s defense. Delpit said they had been preparing for these guys since February and instilling a “side line to side line” quickness to defend this team.
Delpit had seen the LSU team practice the new offense, but to see it in action at Tiger Stadium is another thing. He said it was “great.”
“I love to see the offense throw the ball around, getting it in playmakers’ hands,” the junior safety said.
LSU’s starting quarterback Joe Burrow threw a LSU record five touchdowns in this new, improved offense — which ties an LSU record. The motto for this new-style offense is “everybody eats” and Burrow made sure of that as three different wide outs found the end zone. We should see how well this offense works as they face the Longhorns this Saturday.
