LSU must share the wealth with emerging attacking stars
BATON ROUGE, Louisiana – The LSUs have faced their fair share of adversity over the past calendar year, but the Tigers have developed a problem any team would welcome: too much talent. Eight different players caught a pass against Central Michigan, including four freshmen. The current “difficult situation” reminded head coach Ed Orgeron of his time on the West Coast.
âI was at the University of Southern California, where Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart and LenDale White were in the backfield, and everyone was happy. We’ve got to keep everyone happy. Everyone’s going to get the ball. , and it’s a team. It’s not an individual. That’s why we say it’s’ a team, a heartbeat ‘, and everybody goes,’ said Orgeron.
One individual stood out against the Chippewas: wide receiver Deion Smith. The rookie set all-time highs with five receptions, 135 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Smith has positioned himself for more play reps in the future.
âHe’s going to play more and maybe start. We’ll see how the week goes, but we’ve got a lot of guys who deserve to play, deserve to start. I think it’s a day to day process. We need to give him more of the ball. I’m not going to stop giving him football, and he deserves to play more, âadded Orgeron.
