2022 LSU FOOTBALL PREVIEW
The College Football Today & ESPN Plus 2022 LSU football preview & prediction is brought to you by Scout Trout Elite!
2022 LSU TIGERS FOOTBALL
The 2022 LSU Tigers football squad went through a regime change this past off-season after boasting what many across the industry referred to as “The Greatest College Football Team Of All-Time” after the Tigers glorious 15 & 0 national championship season in 2019. After two .500 seasons, the Tigers athletic department felt it was time for a change and parted ways with Coach Ed Orgeron. This past off-season, the Tigers replaced Coach O and hired Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly, who has historically proved to be a winner across all levels of College Football Today. Coach Brian Kelly began his coaching career with Assumption football in Massachusetts as a defensive coordinator and took over as head coach at Grand Valley State from 1991 to 2003, where he won two NCAA D2 Championships. After turning the Central Michigan football team into a formidable program, Kelly led the Cincinnati Bearcats to a 12 win season in 2009, which led to them finishing the season ranked number three in the nation. After finishing at Cincinnati with a 34 & 6 record, Coach Kelly took over at Notre Dame and led the Fighting Irish to the BCS National Championship game in 2013 and CFB Playoff appearances in 2018 & 2020. The Notre Dame led Coach Kelly squad was able to finish 11 & 1 last season and capped the season off with an appearance in the Fiesta Bowl. So, what could we expect out of Coach Kelly in his first season at the helm of the LSU Tigers, as he obviously knows how to build a program and has been a consistent winner at all levels of collegiate athletics.
LSU TIGERS FOOTBALL 2022
The LSU tigers football team will have some major holes to fill in 2022 after two .500 seasons and an embarrassing loss to Kansas State in the 2022 Texas Bowl. The Tigers defense allowed 31.9 points per game through the first seven games of the season, but showed improvement against Alabama, Arkansas, UL-Monroe and Texas A&M down the stretch. This led to Coach Kelly hiring Matt House away from the Kansas City Chiefs, who will bring a very deceptive NFL style defense to southeastern football conference play in 2022. The LSU defense returns top pass rushing defensive tackle Jaquelin Roy, Mekhi Wingo and sophomore Maason Smith, who made an enormous impact on the LSU Tigers defensive front during his true freshman campaign. The Tigers are very stout in 2022 up front and have two highly projected NFL Draft edge prospects in DE Ali Gaye & Jack Linebacker BJ Ojulari, who will be disguised in a multitude schemes to wreak havoc on opposing teams quarterbacks with their explosive athleticism. Sophomore Greg Penn III and (RS) SO Mike Jones Jr will be starting at linebackers, who both also possess the athletic prowess to hear their names called in future NFL Drafts. All in all, Coach House will have plenty of talent to concoct the perfect scheme weekly in SEC football play as the Tigers have re-booted their defensive backfield with Oklahoma State transfer CB Jarrick Bernard-Converse, Louisiana Ragin Cajuns transfer CB Mekhi Wingo & Arkansas transfer Safety Joe Foucha. Senior Jay Ward will look to be the anchor in the defensive backfield as he provides the most experience playing in the prestigious Tigers stadium in SEC West conference play.
2022 LSU TIGERS OFFENSE
The 2022 LSU tigers offense will be lighting up the scoreboard religiously under Coach Brian Kelly, if the Tigers can provide either Daniels or Brennan ample time in the passing game and open up running lanes for Penn State transfer Noah Cain. It appears that true freshman Will Campbell will be thrust into a starting role, as well as ETSU transfer OG Tre'Mond Shorts and FIU transfer OG Miles Frazier, as the Tigers only return RT SR (RS) Cameron Wire and OC JR Charles Turner. The Tigers will rely on explosive plays down the field out of wide receivers JR Kashon Boutte an SO Malik Nabers, as Daniels or Brennan will be implementing Coach Kelly's pro-style play-action passing scheme that bodes against over-pursuing & highly active SEC defenses.
