SDS senior columnist Connor O’Gara: I’m high on LSU QB Joe Burrow, but I’m not high on his Week 1 outlook vs. Miami

Here’s a take that’s actually worth listening to — it’s OK to think that Burrow will struggle in the opener, while also thinking he’ll turn out to be a pretty good quarterback.

This won’t be an ideal way for Burrow to kick things off at LSU. Someone who arrived on campus this summer will open his career as the only college game on national television against a defense that led all Power 5 teams in takeaways last year. There’s a reason we saw (Miami’s turnover chain) so much in 2017:

Miami returns 70 percent of its defensive production from its burst-onto-the-scene 2017 squad. That includes the likes of preseason All-American safety Jaquan Jackson, as well as a pair of preseason All-ACC picks in cornerback Michael Jackson and linebacker Shaquille Quarterman.

SDS News: LSU coach Ed Orgeron addresses hot seat talk: ‘I feel confident being the coach’
