Joe Burrow excited about LSU's new-look offense: 'We're going to score a lot of points'
While Joe Brady may not be a household name in Louisiana yet, he certainly may be during the season.
Brady was hired as LSU’s new passing-game coordinator this off-season and working under OC Steve Ensminger. Brady’s up-tempo, run-pass option and no-huddle style is certainly gaining headlines heading into 2019.
Ed Orgeron loved the offense during spring practice, and it’s clear he loved the direction his unit was heading.
LSU QB Joe Burrow thinks the Tigers are going to put up some big numbers this season.
“I think we’re going to score a lot of points, and I don’t think a lot of people are used to LSU scoring 40, 50, 60 points a game,” Burrow told The Advocate while attending the Manning Passing Academy. “I think if we do what we need to do up until fall camp and continue our hard work in fall camp, we can be one of the best offenses in the country.”
That’s true; we’re not used to seeing LSU put up that many points per game. The Tigers have relied on just enough offense and killer defense in the past. However, with a defense that’s certainly going to be good, the offense could be the one unit that helps deliver Orgeron an SEC Championship.
LSU is never lacking in talent or development. Alabama obviously has given LSU trouble in the SEC West, but could the Tigers finally have the offense that helps them land in Atlanta?
LSU averaged 32 points (7th in SEC) per game in 2018. Only Alabama averaged more than 40 per game last year. Should LSU average north of 35, look out. This division could get really fun.
