Tigers are prepared to pass against stout Bama defense

During LSU’s three-game winning streak, the run-pass ratio for the Tigers offense has been skewed — perhaps more than ever — thanks to their deep stable of tailbacks and their opponents’ inability to stop them.

Over a three-game stretch that saw No. 14 LSU defeat Florida, Kentucky and Ole Miss, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has kept the ball on the ground 74.6 percent of the time with 156 running plays to just 53 passes.

But even Tigers coach Les Miles believes that strategy may have to change Saturday night when his team hosts No. 4 Alabama, which ranks second in the nation against the run with an aggressive and stingy front seven.

“We’re always searching for balance, and I think there’s an opportunity to achieve that some in this game,” Miles said at his weekly news luncheon Monday. “I think you’ll see, against quality opponents, your opportunity to be more balanced is certainly something that is required.”

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
