Honeymoon over? LSU fans turning on DC Bo Pelini as Mizzou lights up the scoreboard
Remember when LSU coach Ed Orgeron said this offseason that LSU was better on defense now than it was at any point during its magical 2019 title run?
Well, let’s just say those quotes aren’t aging well as new defensive coordinator Bo Pelini’s defense struggles against Mizzou.
The game was tied 24-24 at halftime, and now the score is 38-31 in the third quarter with LSU leading.

It’s clear LSU fans were expecting better from their defense. The honeymoon seems to be over for Pelini in his second stint in Baton Rouge.
Here’s a bit of the reaction from Twitter from angry fans and confused media members:
Bo Pelini is a mad scientist. It's not hard to see why LSU would want a schemer like this in charge of the defense. Look at all this cushion. Very nice read by Mizzou's QB to beat it for a TD pic.twitter.com/Fa4HLiWnvB

Y'all Bo Pelini may have to book himself a commercial flight back to Baton Rouge… https://t.co/Hq4k7h1rER

Will the defense make some key plays down the stretch? Pelini better hope so or fans are going to get on him a lot this week.
