During SEC Media Day, the new full-time #LSU Tigers coach had an opportunity to show off that side of his personality.
His media appearance might not have been preceded by that of first-year LSU head coach Ed Orgeron. Meanwhile, Alabama held LSU's frightening running game to 33 yards (8 of which were gained by Guice) on 27 carries.
"It's been a lot of repetition", Chark said.
Remember a year ago? The LSU-Gators game was scheduled for October 8 in Gainesville, but the game was postponed because of a threat of Hurricane Matthew.
"You see a whole different ball game: how you approach players, how you help a teammate, whatever it might be", he said.
Orgeron spent a large amount of time going through the personnel on this year's squad. "With Derrius being a smaller, stockier guy, I think he's a guy that can do more". But I didn't know it was that serious. "That's the type of guy he is". Orgeron continued. "Everybody that's filmed with the people that do their due diligence, they can go see anybody that they want".
Incoming freshmen Lowell Narcisse, sophomore Justin McMillan, redshirt freshman Lindsey Scott and true freshman Myles Brennan will compete against Etling for starting Q-B.
Florida defensive lineman Cece Jefferson of Glen St. Mary was one of three UF players named to preseason watch lists on Monday. We know for a fact that the stadium is going to be packed now. I think he's going to do an outstanding job. "He wanted to play". It was a chance to be a head coach in the SEC and I learned a lot. Still, even with All-America type players like tailback Derrius Guice and pass rusher Arden Key leading the way, 2017 presents substantial challenges, including a freaky five-road-game SEC schedule (because of last year's hurricane-forced scheduling changes) that features trips to Mississippi State, Florida, Ole Miss, Alabama and Tennessee, in addition to a neutral game against BYU and home dates with Auburn, Arkansas and Texas A&M. We kind of do that for fun, not even as a team. Maybe we would have somehow won a natty. For years the SEC West Division was regarded the most loaded division in football the Big Ten East has since borrowed that title but is there a credible contender to challenge Alabamas reign?
On July 4, Chark and Russell Gage went looking for a throwing partner.
Orgeron laughed. Ponamsky quipped, "Popped it just in time for you to get back on the plane again".
Etling said he'd meet them at the field in 30 minutes.
Sankey said that as a result of the controversy over the Florida-LSU game, the power to re-schedule games postponed by weather now rests with his office. "He's really, really worked on while he was hurt and now that he's not hurt anymore, he's really gotten better". "The timing is great". His anticipation is better.style="text-align: center;"
