One of the biggest stories out of LSU football‘s fall camp recently has been the incredible atmosphere the Tigers have going right now.

Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron has talked a lot this offseason about the great energy and vibe in Baton Rouge.

It’s a sentiment that’s been echoed by numerous LSU players and coaches.

On Tuesday, offensive lineman Austin Deculus became the latest Tiger to talk about the awesome camaraderie that’s been built over the last several months.

LSU football’s improved team chemistry is legit

At this point, I think it’s safe to say that the talk about the improved team chemistry isn’t hyperbole — it really is something special.

Here’s what Deculus had to say about it on Tuesday (via 247Sports):

"“It’s very complicated to say because describing how close we are, it’s just more of you’ll see everybody gelling together. You just feel it in the air. That feeling, you just can’t really describe. It’s crazy. It’s really something that I’ve personally grown to love more and more about this team that we see every day. The camaraderie and stuff, if you’re here for just one day, maybe 30 minutes to an hour, you’ll be able to just, ‘Yep, I know what he’s talking about.'”"

This should really excite LSU fans. Stuff like this is what takes a program to another level.

When it’s late in the fourth quarter and it’s a tight game, it’s imperative that a football team trusts each other. Those are the moments when team chemistry matters a lot. It’s easy when the score is 52-0. It’s not as easy when adversity hits.

I think it’s clear that this LSU team is going to be just fine when it comes to handling adversity.

Obviously, the Tigers will be hoping to deal with as little adversity as possible in 2021. But it’s nice to know that the team will be well prepared if/when it hits.
