LSU football has improved, but Tigers must get better in these areas

After LSU played its most complete game so far this season, coach Ed Orgeron thought the team showed improvement, but he said, “We’re not there yet.”

That became the theme of Orgeron’s press conference Monday ahead of LSU’s first Southeastern Conference game against Mississippi State this weekend. He believed LSU improved last weekend, but he said the Tigers need to continue to get better in certain areas.

“We’re zeroing in on Mississippi State, but more than Mississippi State, it’s about LSU,” Orgeron said. “Continue to fix LSU. There’s a sense of urgency to fix it. I know we have good players. I know we have a good staff. We have to continue to put everything together to be the type of team we want to be.”

Orgeron highlighted how LSU increased its offensive tempo, recorded 12 explosive plays and improved its pass protection against Central Michigan. He liked how the defense caused two turnovers and pressured the quarterback, recording five sacks.

But for every positive sentiment, Orgeron identified something LSU needed to tweak. He said the pass protection needs to take another step, LSU has to erase missed assignments on deep balls, the running game needs to become more productive and the offensive tempo must continue to develop.
