Chat replay: LSU playbook wide open this season? Defense looking up or down in 2015? _lowres

Advocate staff photo by TRAVIS SPRADLING -- Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, left, talks with players including, continuing left to right, Tra'Davois White, Ed Paris and Donte Jackson, at fall camp Friday at LSU 's Charles McClendon Football Practice Facility.

The afternoon portion of LSU’s second day of preseason camp brought heat. And lots of it. Temperatures climbed to 100 degrees. The grass field LSU players practiced on registered at 94 degrees.

It brought a few other things, too, none of them too ground-breaking or concerning, but we do have mildly entertaining videos below.


  • Freshmen O-linemen: Two of LSU’s most highly touted signees were offensive linemen Maea Teuhema and Toby Weathersby, and the two players are already learning new positions. Reporters spotted Teuhema working at right tackle on Friday afternoon and Weathersby at right guard. In Thursday’s opening day, Teuhema was at guard and Weathersby at tackle. These were just individual drills and not full-team portions of practice, in which media are banned from watching.
  • Injury update: Reserve fullback Bry’Kiethon Mouton donned a green non-contract jersey. He practiced but in a limited role. Details on his injury were not provided. Coach Les Miles is next scheduled to meet with reporters Monday.
  • Veteran DBs: Experience defensive backs Dwayne Thomas and Corey Thompson, both juniors, worked in the afternoon group with freshmen and younger players. Thomas was seen teaching the younger players. It’s possible that Thomas, expected to be the Tigers’ starting Dime-back, is in the afternoon to help the young guys. All other starters have been working with the veterans in the morning.
  • Thomas here: Quentin Thomas, who practiced with the veterans Thursday morning, was with the younger guys’ drills Friday afternoon. Why? We don’t know, and it might not matter.
