One national analyst believes LSU football could be in for a massive rebound season in 2021.
247Sports’ Josh Pate recently discussed the most dangerous teams in college football for this upcoming season.
LSU was one of the programs that Pate named.
“LSU to me is the most dangerous team in college football this year fitting these parameters, cause there’s no ceiling,” said Pate (via 247Sports).
And not only does Pate believe the Tigers will be “dangerous” in 2021, he believes if everything goes just right that LSU could win it all.
Could LSU football claim its second national championship in three seasons?
Pate’s belief that LSU could win a national championship is rooted in the Tigers’ strong recruiting over the last several years.
“There’s no ceiling because the roster is so good, they’re literally capable of winning a national championship if everything were to go right,” explained Pate.
“This is the most dangerous team in America this year,” added the 247Sports analyst.
The Tigers’ last three recruiting classes have all finished ranked in the top five in the country, so there’s absolutely plenty of talent on LSU’s roster.
When you combine the talent with the coaching staff additions that Ed Orgeron made this past offseason, it’s easy to see why the ceiling is so high for the Tigers in 2021.
New offensive coordinator Jake Peetz is expected to bring a Joe Brady style of offense back to Baton Rouge this season. Passing game coordinator DJ Mangas, who also worked under Brady with the Carolina Panthers, will aid Peetz’s efforts.
LSU also has two quarterbacks with starting SEC experience in Myles Brennan and Max Johnson who are equally capable of leading the Tigers’ offense in 2021.
It could certainly be a fun bounce-back season for LSU this season. The rest of the SEC West should be on high alert.
