LSU’s new offense

It”s good to read stories like this one in The Advocate (the Baton Rouge daily, not the national gay newspaper) laying out the expectation that LSU”s 2007 offensive will be a lot more wide-open than it”s been in the past. Of course, it might have been nice to play an open offense when we had JaMarcus, Bowe, etc., but let”s not dwell on the past. Matt Flynn is a mobile QB, which will work well in more of a spread attack, and the receiver corps is younger but still really talented. Throw in a strong mix of running backs, and Crowton has all the tools he needs.

It”s slightly disconcerting, though, that the Advocate writer felt compelled to include the line “LSU coach Les Miles isn’t likely to come anywhere close to completely abandoning a power-based run game …“. I”m sure it”s the Leslie cynic in me, but that just stinks of Miles meddling in the plan his new OC has.

But if Crowton is able to open up 90% of the offense, we”ll give Leslie his occasional ineffective plunge into the left side of the line.
