LSU Football: Bo Pelini’s 4-3 defense won’t be “boring”

LSU football will be moving from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 defense in 2020 under new defensive coordinator Bo Pelini.

But the Tigers won’t be running a “boring” 4-3 base defense.

In fact, it won’t necessarily always be a four-man defensive front that LSU utilizes.

Florida State linebackers coach John Papuchis, who coached with Pelini at LSU in 2005, recently told The Athletic that “multiplicity” is a strength of Pelini’s defense.

Papuchis noted that Pelini’s defense has the ability to “morph from week to week”.

Essentially, LSU fans shouldn’t expect to see the Tigers trot out four defensive linemen and three linebackers every play.
