LSU football is the No. 1 topic of discussion every day on SEC Country’s One Team, One Podcast. Host Carter ‘The Power” Bryant chats about The Advocate’s report that Steve Ensminger has been hired as the Tigers offensive coordinator. Bryant shares his disappointment Ensminger is the replacement for the fantastic first-year play-caller Matt Canada, how he is like Georgia’s Nick Chubb in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, instant reaction to Alabama coach Nick Saban’s sixth national championship, how the Tigers will deal with the 2018 NFL Draft declarations from Kevin Toliver II and Toby Weathersby and more.
Steve Ensminger and Nick Chubb have a few things in common
All signs are pointing to Ensminger being promoted to LSU’s full-time offensive coordinator. He accumulated over 460 yards per game as the Tigers interim play-caller in 2016. Ed Orgeron should thank his fellow popular Louisiana native’s efforts, which helped him land the head coaching job in Baton Rouge.
Bryant hates the move. He says hiring from within with so many talented offensive minds out there will hurt. He also explains why Orgeron’s decision is similar to what Georgia inexplicably did to Chubb in the National Championship Game against Alabama.
Also, Bryant dives into a host a topics. He was asked on Twitter if LSU was anywhere near where Alabama and Georgia currently are as programs. The show ends with an interesting fact about elephant pregnancy.
