LSU football podcast: Ed Orgeron should bench suspended players coming back

LSU football is the No. 1 topic of discussion every day on SEC Country’s  One Team, One Podcast. Your host Carter “The Power” Bryant is  joined in this episode by SEC Country’s Nick Suss for a film breakdown of offensive coordinator Matt Canada’s debut against BYU. Also, Bryant explains why Ed Orgeron should bench all of the players suspended for the first game when he decides to reinstate them on the official game day roster. 

LSU played BYU in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The game was originally set to be played in Houston’s NRG Stadium, but was moved due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Donate to relief efforts by visiting

Ed Orgeron should send a message

Orgeron suspended 13 players for the opener against BYU, most of which were on defense. The Tigers were also without preseason All-American Arden Key.

LSU responded with a shutout in one of the most dominant defensive displays in school history. The Cougars only ran 38 plays and never crossed midfield.

SEC Country’s Alex Hickey reported 10 of the 13 suspended Tigers were at practice on Monday.

Bryant believes Orgeron should send a message by not giving Kevin Toliver II and Donnie Alexander their starting roles back and also knock the other returnees down the depth chart.

Matt Canada’s offense

Suss explains in his latest film study on how Matt Canada’s rushing attack is unique. The Tigers were able to consistently pound the football against a BYU defense that wore down as the game went along.

Suss also recaps how defensive coordinator Dave Aranda picked apart BYU despite LSU’s inexperience. He was blown away by the performances of Greedy Williams and Ed Paris.
