Mike Leach Air raid offense is second in the conference after Georgia and fifth nationally, with an average of 385.0 yards for a game through the air. Brian Kelly He knows his defense faces a major challenge.
“I have a lot of respect for Coach Leach, and he’s obviously starting to insult,” Kelly said. “It’s an offense of accuracy. He’s very well trained. And you know, there’s a level of patience and persistence that you need in defense, because if you’re trying to disrupt him in one way, there are answers they have.”
“The answers are tried, true and tested. So, look, this is going to be our guys’ attention to detail. They will have to handle very well. This really brings out the really good principles of defensive football.”
LSU will have to move the chains and hold on to the football, so that its defense is not eroded.

The LSU offense will go where Daniels takes it. Over the last eight drives, the youngsters’ transition has led the Tigers to the finish zone in every single one.
“I think you start off efficiently with Daniels,” Kelly explained. “His ability to keep eight active engines in a row and turn them into a landing. I think that’s a great place to start. So, you know, I think there’s still growth there, and he’ll tell you if he’s standing here. There’s still growth and recognition.”
“But he’s malleable. I think I mentioned this the last time we talked about him, it’s his behavior when he comes to the fringes. He’s very adaptable, he takes information, he talks to the box, he talks to me on the sidelines where you can get him from the information and he can pick up on that and move on. to the next series.
LSU leads the overall series with the Bulldogs, 76-36-3.
