WATCH NOW: LSU Tigers discuss their 28-25 win over Mississippi St. to open SEC play
okay sean, if you would just talk to me about the offensive production today, your ability to continue to find ways to get open and make plays. Uh they were kind of switching defenses around so I was moving kind of back and forth and fill the monitor. They was looking at different looks, trying to give me the ball and they kind of figured out the right schemes and everything and they played out and everything fell into place. Okay for starters, can you take us through I guess just both of your touchdowns, what you’re seeing on those plays and how on the second one, the RP Oh, just how that really worked out so well on the first one we had ran at the first time it was open, he tried to throw it but he had got hit. So we came back with the second time and it was open again and the same thing with the second one was opened the first time, but he handed off the run so the safety could come down on it hard and then we ran it back and he did the exact same thing so he pulled him through. Yeah. Hey sean, I mean obviously that’s that’s a big place today, but also, you know, there was some in this throws, things like that like that and she wasn’t always there I guess. Walk me through what you saw and then uh, could you repeat? Yeah. Oh, okay sean uh what kind of step that y’all think y’all took every week you’re supposed to take a step forward and improvement. Where do you think you improved day as far as it can, I kind of stay on the offense to improve and really our defense defense came out and played their heart out for like offense, we play good, there’s always room for improvement. We could have played better, but they start out to the defense. Yeah. Yeah. It seems like you always strive for excellence. Um is it a case if you’re happy to be, want to know eat your group? Yeah. Oh, because you’re repeating, it seems like you always strive for excellence and want to improve. Are you happy with the win? But I also feel like you’d like to finish a little bit better than what you guys did. Yes sir, I really like that one and I feel like we could have put up more points his offense, but sometimes you just gotta be grateful you want jay. Um If you would just talk about being able to get back out on the field, how that felt for you and then personally as the game progresses and you understand what they’re trying to do with the bend don’t break philosophy, the patients that you guys as defenders need to have to kind of just play that game plan and not try to do too much. Was that important feel to have success today? Yes, that was important to us. Um as you can see was successful with it and then back out there, I’m glad to be back out there. Uh, I don’t like that, you know, right? J obviously, you know, last week in Mississippi state, you had to come back early from an injury to play that game and the defense has got burned. How satisfying is it today to a year later, played them and actually defend this offense the way you would like to, um, it feels good to beat them playing while fully healthy last I struggled this year, I’m back healthy, came out on top. Mhm. Yeah. Hey jay, obviously for you guys to be able to execute this kind of game plan you guys needed to tackle very well in the secondary and, you know, you and Dwight were both coming back from injury, I guess just trying to, you know, talk about y’all’s ability to tackle so well, I guess the short week of practice and, you know, being able to execute the game plan, like we’re talking so well, because we were attacking the drill every day, we gotta be perfect in time. Hey jay Sheldon Michel’s from the advocate in baton rouge. How did the two turnovers you guys got in the first quarter? I think they were both in the first quarter from Cordele. How did that lift the defense up? And what did it do for you the rest of the first half? Uh, I got a ton of, we’ll have informed me that was the first an assertion, but that little detail, no, um, everybody got to have a chance to get a ton of them. Yeah, jay, Jeff, no ac W W radio, you know, one thing I asked about Mississippi State ran 88 plays on offense. Yes. 50 for, you know, when you go into a game knowing you know, the scheme is gonna end up with you guys on the field a lot, you know, do you, does that is that something you factor in as you’re preparing as you’re trying to figure out? Okay. My fitness level needs to be up for four quarters, not just the first half. And how do you kind of figure that out throughout the course of the game? As a D. V. We run a lot. So we got to be in shape. They made every play because no telling how long would it be running? I’d like to ask you about the defensive effort, you know, on the sideline. I know you’re preparing for your next series, but when you hear the game plan is going to be what it is and I guess just the patients needed from the entire team, but especially on defense. What do you what do you think when you hear kind of all right, You know, we’re gonna let them beacon dunk all day, but we’re gonna try to stop holding out again. So as you know, what do you think does that put more pressure on you to make sure it’s really capitalized when you do have the ball? Yeah. Our defense played their hearts out and last night coach joe said he was just, he was speaking his mind, he’s saying, you know, say I threw a pick or say something happens. They got my back and I got there. So I, I really appreciate cocoa and our team. I love our defense. You know, there’s some dogs. Um, yeah, there’s a lot of fun going out. There could be Max, you were the first quarterback uh, since Rohan Davey 99 to throw three touchdown passes over 40 yard sales offices. Really explosive today in that way. What contributed to being able to do that at least in this game? Yeah. I think coach Pete just dial up some really good players whether if they’re playing zero coverage or man to man. I think coach coach piece called specific place to beat that coverage and be able to capitalize and Casey in makes a big place for us. Coal had his first touchdown, which is pretty sweet. So yeah, max, I guess I want to talk about the uh, the first touchdown will set after. Did you feel like, I mean that could go all the way if you, if you hit it just right. Yeah. I mean I was, I was reading the safety on that play and he ended up coming down and fitting for the run and you know Keshawn, I put the ball in case on his hands and he made the play. So yeah, mm max, it seemed like you were kind of forced to make a lot of, you know, off platform throws and things like that say I guess is that, is that a result of the pressure and just kind of, how do you, how do you adjust and that’s to throw? You have to make so often? I think, I think the first half I had a little bit more, um, you know, off schedule throws, but 2nd 2nd half, I think we settled in the online did a great job. Second half, you know, whether there are flying protections or not, they did a really good job protecting me and that we were able to make a big place, Hey max, what did you see out of coal? Taylor’s touchdown. He was almost in disbelief how wide open he was there at the end of score. Yeah. So they ended up bringing zero coverage. So I had to drift on it and then cool. Actually asked me what he had on that play and I told him a specific route and then uh, yeah, it ended up happening that way and it was as a big play for us, Right? I saw him talk to you on pre snap. I want to go back to what you said about cocoa. So he got the team together last night that he kind of say, look, this is what we’re gonna do. This is how we want to approach this game. And it’s that normal or abnormal from a normal day, he usually speaks his mind the night before games, but he, he was just tell me that they got my back and I got no offense has the defense backs. And I think that’s kind of what happened today. I threw a pick that came back and you know, stop them. So I really appreciate them and they’re, you know, they always got my back and I got there max is quite rapidly from the advocate. How do you weigh the explosiveness of the offense, which is good versus the fact that you probably would like some more sustained dr, especially the end of the game when you know, it would be good to be able to run some more clock off the, off the board and not give them the opportunity to get back in the game? Yeah, I totally agree with you. I think we should have, I don’t, I don’t know what exactly we’re trying to, I don’t know what plays were being called, but I think we, we execute that. We executed them to what was called. And yeah, I think we should take more time off the clock and coach beats a good job of calling hey Dimon when you heard the philosophy and what they wanted to do on defense this week. The coaches, what were your thought processes and how hard is it to be patient when they’re having some success underneath, You know, to kind of stick to the game playing and know what it’s going to. First of all, I just want to say I’m part of the way out teams, but you know, we fought to the end. I mean I can’t be any more part of the way our team played. But that’s a good question. I mean that’s, that’s Mississippi state offense. I mean, you just gotta, you know, all week the coach has been harping on, don’t take the cheese, you know, just let them throw the tech down and just a little bit set another place. So I mean, I’m just part of the way we play, but you know, there’s always room for improvement. You know, we know we know we got to work on, we don’t get fixed. Hey, the moon shelter Michel’s at the Advocate. Um, you were part of two ways in the first quarter. Um, cordell knock the ball loose and you kind of picked it up and then he got to pick in the first quarter. Also, what did that do for your defense to get those two takeaways and kind of set the tone for your effort in the first half. I just want to shout out flock man. I mean I’m proud of flight me, you know, he every day, you know, he just talked, he just talk to me every day, you know what I’m saying? Just keep, keep me motivated and I keep them motivated and to see him the first, the first turnover, forced fumbles, I should score that, but I mean that’s on me, but I mean I’m just, I’m just proud of the way I defense for. I mean flock was all over the field, you know, and I’m just proud of, Yeah, yeah. Ramona’s William with tiger rag, how you doing good. Want to ask you just, you think last year I was the defense took the reputation defensively took a beating last year. Last year’s game. How much do you think today maybe help you repair that a little bit? I mean, we know we know what happened last year, you know, since New Year’s and coaches. So I mean, I mean the past is the past, you know, we just make sure that the same thing that happened last year didn’t happen this year. I mean, like I said, I’m proud of our defense, you know, we gotta, we gotta keep fighting and finish at the end, but I’m probably for, you know, and that way it wasn’t another last year today. Hey Damon johnson Channel nine um, can you talk about the, the aspect of conditioning in a game like this and then also disciplined just to not let the ball go over the top all day. I mean uh Mississippi State when I was walking and I heard that said, how many placements upstate did compared to ours, but I mean you gotta be conditions for these type of games in sec play, you know, Mississippi state has a specific offence that they do, you know, which you know, like you just said, you know, just keeping the ball in front of you, not letting the ball go over your head. Well for the most part we did a good job. But I mean like I said, we got room for improvement. Know each we got room for improvement there. He’s got to improve on the explosives that they had that they get them fixed because of course, you know, I think it’s too far next week, but we’re going to see them, same place they hit us anymore. And this is a nationally with Louisiana ground football. Uh you’ve led the team in tackles now before straight game. Uh How does that as a statement make you feel? Also um on that two point conversion you saw the receiver across your face and you hit him. Which for as a linebacker when you see a receiver across your face, your your main instinct is to hit the receiver. Uh what’s going through your mind on that particular place. Uh What uh answer your first question, I mean, I just got there and just you know, whatever I gotta do help my team win. That’s what you know, that’s what I’m gonna do is not about for me, it’s not about the status. I mean, like I said, I just want whatever we got to do to win, you know, I’ll do whatever we have to do to win, but on that two point play, I mean, we went over that place, so I knew what play was coming, you know, I saw the play, like we kept going over that play and I, you know, like you said, my first instance was to hit them, you know, because it was it was to place that, you know, that I know that they ran two point, it was one, they’ll try to crack me, you know? So I maybe I thought the receivers trying to crack me, so I just ran through, you know, I just hit him. I mean, I don’t, I don’t like to call, they made, but I mean, it is what it is, we want what I mean? Uh Yeah, Mhm Dimon ed said that as a coaching staff um they were looking at this 3-6, like since the game ended last year uh when as players was communicated to you all that you were going to start using this scheme and what was it like this week, implementing something that you had never really done before? Oh, I mean, I mean, it was, you know, it was implemented on monday when we uh we made the correct from our last game And uh you know, we started you got a head start on Mississippi state and they installed, you know, the 3-6, you know, they told us, you know, just keep the ball in front of you. That’s that’s the biggest thing. No explosive plays. Don’t bite on the cheese. Keep the ball in front of. Yeah, I mean it worked well. You know, like I keep saying the same thing we got just finished. That’s the biggest thing. Just finish to the end.
