Coach O: “We will be a great defense”

LSU’s Ed Orgeron coaches the number one team in the nation, and his Tigers can win the SEC West for the first time since 2011 Saturday night.

However .. what about that defense? LSU fans and media reporting on LSU are asking that question after Ole Miss rushed for 402 yards and had 614 yards of offense Saturday night in a 58-37 loss to the Tigers.

Here’s what Coach O said about his defense, at his weekly press conference Monday.
