Hurry Up: 8-0

There's pretty wins, and there's gritty wins. Saturday's 23-20 win over Auburn was the latter for LSU, but it was a top-10 win in which the Tigers will feel like they have plenty of room for improvement. Not a bad place to be heading into the bye week. Plenty to talk about on today's Hurry Up, including: - Auburn's surprising defensive scheme - LSU's defensive dominance - Playing to strengths vs. taking what's given - Joe Burrow being tougher than nails - Derek Stingley being a dude - Clyde Edwards-Helaire being a dude Back later in the week with some bye week stuff.

Hurry Up: On to the Natty

In its first ever appearance in the College Football Playoff, LSU dismantled Oklahoma in historic, record-breaking fashion, a 63-28 win to move on to the national title game.  A day that started with sorrow ended with football joy, and we focus mostly on football today, as the Tigers are making a case as maybe one of the best teams of all time.  We talk Joe Burrow's record day (again), how Justin Jefferson went off for 14 catches and 228 yards and 4 touchdowns, Chris Curry stepping up for Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Thad Moss being still underrated, Terrace Marshall being a stud, the O-line stepping up, K'Lavon Chaission wreaking havoc, and the pass defense becoming the best in the country. A slightly different edition of the Hurry Up today: no player audio. Just 50 minutes of analysis and Mailbag questions, because, now, I head to the hospitality room.  See y'all in New Orleans. (Actually, we'll have more episodes before then) .--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/support

"Lead with the heart, and the body will follow."Clyde Edwards-Helaire said it best, and he and his team lived it out on Saturday night.LSU lead with the heart in Tuscaloosa, and they came back with a 46-41 win and an inside track at the SEC West title and the College Football Playoffs.We get away from the stats and tactics today, and we dig into the emotions. There were tears and laughs and smiles and shouts after the game, from the field to the locker room to the plane and the airport in Baton Rouge. I want to make sure you experience all that.

Justin Jefferson on Breaking Out, Moving to the Slot, and Following in His Family's Footsteps + Mickey Joseph and Georgia Southern Wrap Up

Fresh off a breakout season in 2018 and a stellar start to 2019, junior wide receiver Justin Jefferson joins the show (22:45) for an extended sit down.  Justin dives deep into being the third Jefferson brother to wear the purple and gold, growing up around the program, and breaking out as a sophomore after showing up late as a freshman – when half the team thought he was a walk on. He also discusses some of the outside-the-box approaches the wide receivers implemented this offseason to make sure they're catching more passes and dropping fewer.  Before that, I put a bow on the win over Georgia Southern with some deep statistical dives into the passing game, the offensive line, and a couple of surprising defensive standouts. We also sit down with LSU wide receivers coach Mickey Joseph (15:20) to break down the success of the passing game in week one, when 14 players caught passes. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/support

Hurry Up: Fireworks in Austin as LSU's Offense Rewrites the Record Books in the Air

Joe Burrow threw for 471 yards. Justin Jefferson, Terrace Marshall, and Ja'Marr Chase all went for 100+ receiving yards.  The defense got two goalline stops and a few big performances, doing enough to get the win, 45-38, over Texas.  WHOOOOOOOOOO BOY. We touch on that and more in today's hurry up, with sound from Joe Burrow and, later, interviews from (in this order) Chase, Jefferson, Marshall, and Cushenberry.

JaCoby Stevens on Changing Positions, John D. Rockefeller, Perfectionism, Opening Up, and Breaking Out in a New Defense

JaCoby Stevens bounced around between positions for the better part of two seasons at LSU, before breaking out late in 2018 as a star safety. His transformation at LSU, however, extends well beyond defensive schemes. The junior safety sat down for a wide-ranging, eye-opening 30 minute conversation on everything from Rockefeller to the LSU Barbershop (where he has recently ascended to first chair) to considering transferring and finally finding a home where he started all along.  JaCoby also talks growing up an LSU fan in Tennessee, inventing the College Football Playoff, his top five cereals, and he constructs an offense made entirely of Tiger defensive players. Trust me: you don't want to miss this conversation with one of the smartest football players – one of the smartest people, period – you'd ever be lucky enough to sit down with.  Back next week with a camp wrap-up and, believe it or not, the first game week of the season. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/support

Hurry Up: Don't Let Good Enough Get in the Way of Greatness

LSU's offense proves itself against an elite defense, and LSU's defense makes the necessary adjustments and crunch time plays to knock off Florida in a statement-making win. On today's Hurry Up, we break down the offense's pedal to the metal mentality and the defense's critical tweak to get off the field in the second half. We talk about the offensive trio (soon to be quartet) no one has an answer for as well as the incredible performance of LSU's offensive line.  We also break down Derek Stingley and K'Lavon Chaisson's second half contributions and hear from a ton of players, including Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Lloyd Cushenberry, Glen Logan, Chaisson, and Burrow.

While the defense has work to do, there's plenty of reason for dancing after a 10-0 start.  We also hear from Joe Burrow, Justin Jefferson, Ja'Marr Chase, Thad Moss, and Coach O after the win. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/support

Camp Standouts with Jacob Hester + Beer and Wine in Tiger Stadium with Robert Munson

Camp is over. Football season is here. The Tigers are less than a week from opening the season against Georgia Southern at home, and today's focus is on LSU. Camp is over, so which players stood out in the practices and closed scrimmages? We discuss that and more with former LSU running back Jacob Hester. After that, LSU senior associate athletic director Robert Munson hops on to talk beer, wine, and spiked seltzer in Tiger Stadium. After passage of a new SEC policy allowing universities to sell alcohol to the public inside stadiums during games, LSU has worked endlessly to get ready for game day. We talk with Robert about the questions, logistics, and preparations for a new era inside Tiger Stadium. We also talk about my dad.

Hurry Up: Business As Usual

It was a 56-20 win, the program's first SEC West title in eight years, and the scene for yet more offensive records. Or, in Joe Burrow's words, "business as usual." It was also the pre-Thanksgiving appetizer for next week's main course. Unfinished business with Texas A&M. We start today's show by discussing the unexpected tone in the wake of the win over Arkansas. Ed Orgeron switched it up, and his players followed suit. There wasn't a big celebration. There wasn't a lot of joking around or joviality. There was, instead, a sense of supreme focus that had already turned its attention to the Aggies. You can read about that here, or you can listen to it on this episode.  Later, after we do eventually break down the victory and the records and the offense's show and the defense's improvement. Then, we answer some listener questions, and we also hear from Clyde Edwards-Helaire, JaCoby Stevens, Jacob Phillips, and Thad Moss. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/support

Thaddeus Moss + Dave Aranda's Aggressive Changes on Defense

On today's show, we sit down with LSU junior tight end Thaddeus Moss (16:33), who is healthy and producing this fall for the Tigers. Thad talks about growing up in the limelight of his father, Randy Moss — the greatest receiver of all time. He also dives deep into the frustrations of an injury-riddled 2018 campaign that kept him off the field, his offseason focus on getting healthy for the 2019 season, and his success so far this fall in LSU's new-look offense.  Before that, we take look at Dave Aranda's new-look defense, which features a more aggressive approach. After three seasons on the job, Aranda realized he needed to alter his tactics to get the most out of a 2019 unit full of versatile athletes.  Here's a link to the article referenced in the podcast:  https://lsul.su/2YPXvHV While you're here: rate, review, subscribe, and share with a friend.

Jacob Phillips and JaCoby Stevens on High School Rivalries and Going Home + Tommie Robinson on LSU's Running Backs

Who is the real Mr. Football for Tennessee in 2017? LSU went into the Volunteer State three classes ago to pluck a pair of five stars in JaCoby Stevens and Jacob Phillips from the Nashville metro area, and both Tigers will return there Saturday for a clash with Vanderbilt. They talk (9:00) about going home for a road game, but they also talk a little trash about a high school rivalry that turned into a college friendship. They also talk about the growth each has seen in the other, as well as the development of LSU's 2019 defense.  After a great chat with Jacob and JaCoby, we sit down with LSU running backs coach Tommie Robinson to talk about his vision for the Tigers' backs in this new offense, the fit of Clyde Edwards-Helaire, the experience of Lanard Fournette, the development of the younger backs, and how recruits have responded to the system. We also update, early in the show, the status of a few defensive players who've picked up injuries in recent weeks, and we hear from Ed Orgeron on the improvement of Joe Burrow. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heyfightinpodcast/support

Hurry Up: Broken Records

That sweet, sweet sound you're hearing in your ears on today's show might sound like the gentle rise and fall of the ocean's waves, but it's really the sound of a broken record. That's right: I feel like I've recorded this podcast before. I haven't, of course, because LSU just beat Vanderbilt 66-38, and I break down all that actions, as usual, with some help from the locker room sound and the box score. But I'm starting to repeat myself, because every time we talk, the Tigers are breaking offensive records, and I'm talking about how incredible they're performing. Today, it was Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase teaming up for the fireworks in Nashville. We talk about that, and we also give out game balls to a special teams standout who scored once and nearly twice, a freshman defender whose legend can't stop growing, and we hear from Burrow on that sideline confrontation. We also take a crack at what questions Coach O will face at his next presser, including injuries and defensive lapses. Enjoy this episode, then enjoy the bye week.
