LSU’s Pre-Media Days Questions
-Is LSU losing its swagger?
-Will the new offensive linemen block better than last year’s line?
-Will the UNC game be a sign of the type of season it will be for LSU?
-Will a school with plenty of 4 and 5 star talent be 112th in the nation in total offense or even close to that again this year?
-Two years ago the defense struggled, last year it was the offense that was anemic, which direction will it go for LSU this year?
-What are the encouraging signs that point to potentially drastic improvements on both sides of the ball?
-Is junior QB Jarrett Lee really competing for the starting quarterback job?
-Will Lee get a chance if QB Jordan Jefferson starts and struggles early?
-Why hasn’t Jefferson developed quicker?
-Can Senior DT Drake Nevis be the run-stuffing, gap-plugging, effective defensive tackle that LSU has been missing since their national championship?
-Which young players can help LSU affect the quarterback much more than they have the last two years when sacks, hurries and pressures have been on the decline?
-Who were the standouts from the spring?
-Is LSU’s special teams one of the best units in the SEC?
-Does this season hinge most on the quarterback play?
-Will they finally find a way to use Rueben Randle properly, so he can be the game-changing weapon the offense desperately needs?
-Does Les Miles feel the frustration from a portion of the fan base over the last two years of.500 ball in the SEC?
