FSU Secondary Still Has Work To Do
I say this understanding LSU will likely have a top 10 offense at the end of the season. They have excellent wide receivers, and used a lot of quick passes to attempt to negate the pass rush.
Also, the defense had to account for Jayden Daniels running the ball. Daniels finished 22 of 37 for 347 yards, but 75 of those yards came on the final LSU play in garbage time.
He only completed 58 percent of his passes, but LSU receivers were running wide open a few too many times.
FSU got lucky with LSU receivers dropping a couple of passes when they were open. It looked as though they were often confused pre-snap, and LSU did run a ton of bunch sets as the defense ran man-to-man.
LSU receivers made some nice plays under decent coverage too. Look, it was game one, and they have some new players and a new defensive backs coach.
It was a myriad of things affecting their play, but I hope to see them clean up a few things as the games progress.
