Count LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda as the latest to heap positive comments onto the Tigers offense under first-year offensive coordinator Matt Canada.
According to Mark Heim of AL.com, during a Thursday radio appearance on The Opening Kickoff on WNSP-FM 105.5, Aranda detailed some of the difficulties Canada’s offense presents.
“You’re getting stretched east to west so much,” Aranda said. “It forces you to have your eyes on the right spot. There will be a fly sweep and a lead block for that fly sweep. It’s very difficult to have a blitzing, attacking mindset against something like that. It will be coming at you a bunch.”
Back on his side of the ball, Aranda described Ed Orgeron’s style of being present and hands on with the defense. He also commented on a new trend brewing in the coaches’ offices.
“Coach O is different because he’s always with us, so I can run something by him,” Aranda said. “You can hear Coach O coming down the hallway. Every coach has a fridge in his office and we all have energy drinks.”
