** Ed Orgeron blinked first by releasing LSU’s depth chart for the highly anticipated matchup against the Miami Hurricanes:
JUST IN: Week 1 #LSU Depth Chart— LSU Football (@LSUfootball) August 27, 2018
Sept. 2 vs. Miami (Fla.) in Arlington, Texas

- Offensively, the Tigers are starting a running back without a single career touchdown. Senior Nick Brossette has 306 career yards with zero scores and sophomore Clyde Edwards-Helaire has just 31 career rushing yards. LSU is seriously lacking experience and a true number one back for the first time in a long, long time. Who ever is back there will be running behind a solid left side of the offensive line, but are fairly inexperienced at center and right guard. There absolutely will be chances for Miami’s tenacious defense to penetrate.
- On the other side of the ball, it is tough to find a hole anywhere. There is just so much talent all over. The defensive backfield is ridiculous with Greedy Williams leading the way. Former five-star corner Kristian Fulton was deemed eligible recently after being freed of a potential two-year suspension by the NCAA for not passing a drug test. Somehow a young man’s future was almost ruined, but a grown adult can get a slap on the wrist for covering up acts of domestic violence for years. Funny world we live in.
Anyways, Malik Rosier will be greatly tested. This is test number one of many that he will face throughout the year.
