THE WIZARDRY OF OS
By Scott Osborne
Assistant Basketball Coach at Central High School

        Is this what it is like to be an Oklahoma fan?  I’ll take it because Oklahoma plays in the College Football Playoff every year.
        After a game like LSU and Texas had Saturday night, I am reminded of the John Wooden quote, “The two hardest things to handle in life are failure and success.”  Can the offense handle the success of the first two weeks and continue like the Oklahoma’s of the world to develop the offense against the next group of weak opponents?  Can the defense handle their failures and get back to playing the way we all suspect they are capable?
        We are still very early in the season so there are some things we are all observing that we are trying to decide if the are a big deal or no big deal.  Let me see if I can help.
        Big Deal or No Big Deal?  The running game is decent, but nothing to write home about.  No big deal.  The running game has been effective, and that is what matters.  When LSU has needed to run, the Tigers have gained the yards necessary.  
I love Clyde Edwards-Helaire.  He is physical, has great balance, and plays very hard.  He just can’t run away from anyone with speed.  The number one objective for this offense over the next month is to find big plays in the running game, so the play action game stays successful  That might mean using some receivers like Kirklin, Palmer, or Chase.  Of course, there are very talented freshmen that we are expecting to develop over throughout the year.  I don’t blame the coaches one bit for keeping the rotation short at Texas.  This next month, though, will be different.
Big Deal or No Big Deal?  The defense wearing down at Texas.  This is a big deal because it will hopefully continue to be a problem as we hope the offense remains explosive, so the defense will be on the field more.  They will have to defend more possessions and more plays.  The defensive coaches have to substitute more often early in the game and early in drives.  
The poor tackling, the lack of defensive players around the football was a result of fatigue in my mind.  Again, just like the offensive coaches, I understand being hesitant about substituting early in the game on the road at Texas.  Who knows?  Maybe if the offense had scored on the first drive of the second half, Texas may have panicked.  The defense would have been fine.  But, I am glad it happened because LSU won and the defensive coaches should see what they are going to have to do to have this defense still playing its best in the fourth quarter.
And LSU has the depth.  Queen, Clark, Divinity, and Phillips can all play inside linebacker.  There are hungry players on the defensive line that could come in and play a series like they did at the end of the game.  They didn’t make many plays, but they played with energy, which the starters had none of in the second half.
Big Deal or No Big Deal?  The pass defense was torched.  Yes and no.  Fulton was in position to make plays, but didn’t, just like the Miami game last year.  He missed most of camp this year, while last year he was coming off not playing for a year.  We know he can make those plays and he will.
The clean pocket that Ehlinger had all night is a concern.  The theory as to why LSU had no pass rush last year was that LSU didn’t have the depth and Chaisson was hurt.  Well that theory should be put to bed after Saturday night.  For whatever reason, LSU can’t just line up, rush four, and consistently collapse the pocket.  I understand LSU wanted to stay in rush lanes and collapse the pocket with the interior linemen, but LSU is simply not capable with this personnel of that style.  Orgeron has now recognized as much.  
Whether Aranda will have to have more zone blitzes, corner blitzes, stunts, or ways to disguise coverages is up to him.  But Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida, Auburn, and Mississippi State will be tough to stop if LSU does not find a way to disrupt the quarterback in the pocket.
The beauty of LSU’s schedule is the coaches and players have had a dose of reality while having success.  They have a month to figure it out and improve, and I like our chances.
        I am only going to make one comment on the Saints game.  If you didn’t see any of that coming, you haven’t been reading my column or watching the Saints over the years.  There was not one ounce of me that expected the defense to stop the Texans on the last drive.  The Saints might have run into their best strategy to win these games at the end that have kept them out of the Super Bowl the last two years.
We keep trying to discover a way to stop the other team.  Why?  Just let them score quickly and give Drew a chance.  It has certainly worked better than trying to stop the other team.  
Thankfully, it is the NFL and all that matters is the Saints won the game and lead the division.  Who Dat!
