The LSU Tigers obliterated Georgia Southern 55-3 while debuting the Purry Up Offense installed by new passing game coordinator Joe Brady (a former Joe Moorhead and Sean Payton acolyte). QB Joe Burrow threw five touchdowns on 23 of 27 passing and LSU scored touchdowns on their first five possessions. 14 different Tigers caught a pass. LSU running a hurry up, RPO, shotgun spread offense is kind of amazing. The people of Baton Rouge haven’t seen offense like that since the state’s last honest politician. In other words, never.

In any event, Georgia Southern looked like a JV team from Rhode Island and not a perennial I-AA power, but LSU can only maul who is put in front of them and that they did. That game is 77-3 if they felt like it. In my preseason football preview, I opined that LSU has the most talented roster of any team that the Longhorns will face in the 2019 season. I’ve seen nothing to dissuade me from that opinion.

I typically start with an opponent personnel run down, but I want to touch on the big picture.
