Fans can start generating excitement and anticipation for the next LSU football season. We now know it will not be long before the Tigers return to practice.
LSU football announced its spring schedule on Tuesday. As such, we are 30 days away from the first practice for the 2024 season.
The spring football schedule in Baton Rouge features 14 practices and the spring game on April 13. An early “L Day” announcement is particularly exciting because we did not have such a year ago.
Tiger fans might recall injuries and recoveries that left LSU football with a depleted offensive line and running back depth chart during 2023 spring practices. Thus, Brian Kelly was non-committal about hosting a spring game. Ultimately, LSU played in a 2023 “L Day” scrimmage under modified rules. Thankfully, the 2024 roster is healthier, and the upcoming spring game is poised to resemble more of a complete game.
Other dates of note in LSU football’s spring schedule include a pre-NFL Draft Pro Day on March 27 and an April 4-6 Coaches Clinic
March 5 is a big day for LSU football fans eager to see highlights of Garrett Nussmeier leading the offense as the new starter. The Sophomore (RS) quarterback led the Tigers to a ReliaQuest Bowl win over Wisconsin in January, but there’s a difference between filling in for the team’s top QB versus being the team’s top QB.
Spring practices will also be the first glimpse of LSU football’s defense underestimate the new defensive coaching staff. Indeed, there are several questions regarding Blake Baker’s scheme and how playmakers like Harold Perkins will factor into it.
LSU football is currently conducting its winter strength training and conditioning program. Only LSU’s strength and conditioning staff is permitted to work with players during this time
