BATON ROUGE – After two days of practice in shorts and helmets, LSU will turn up the intensity on Saturday as the Tigers will put on shoulder pads for their final workout of the week.
After two practices thus far, LSU coach Les Miles has been pleased with what's he's seen from his team.
"We've only been in shorts and helmets, but I like the tempo of practice," Miles said. "It's been a nice start to the spring. Our team is improving. We have some young guys that will have an opportunity to compete. We have some veterans that know how to do things. It is a nice start. I think our defense is maybe going to be ahead of where we were at different times a year ago.
"I've been very pleased so far. We'll get to see the real personality of the team with a nice, physical practice tomorrow."
LSU will practice a total of 15 times during the spring, culminating with the National L-Club Spring Game on Saturday, April 20 in Tiger Stadium. Kickoff for the spring game is 2 p.m. and admission is free of charge.
One obvious area of interest for the Tigers this spring is the development of the offense under first-year coordinator Cam Cameron. Cameron, who joined LSU last month, after serving as an offensive coordinator and a head coach in the NFL, has made his impact felt right away with an up-tempo, NFL-style practice routine.
"I think it is very good," Miles said. "It is fast paced, but it's under development. It is not necessarily finished with the players. What has to happen is the offense has to accomplish it. It is a challenge to them and I think they are really enjoying the challenge. They are recognizing that there are some real benefits to that style of play. It has been very good."
After Saturday's practice, the Tigers will return to the field next week workouts on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. LSU's first scrimmage of the spring will be held on Saturday, March 23.
