New, 10 comments

Matt Canada’s changes on offense continue to dominate coverage.

LSU hit the practice fields for day two of spring practice, and media continued to focus on new offensive coordinator Matt Canada and the up-tempo, high-volume presence he’s brought to the Ponderosa.

In player availability, the other changes Canada is bringing to the offense were discussed, including the different shifts and motions that characterized his attack at Pitt last season.

Some other notes from Ross Dellenger’s day two report:

Still in gold: OL Donavaughn Campbell (shoulder) and FB J.D. Moore (wrist) remained in gold jerseys, signifying their limitation because of injury. Moore, by the way, said he broke his wrist against Alabama last season. He underwent surgery after the regular season and another surgery recently. He's donning a cast on his forearm/wrist during spring.

New gold: DL Christian LaCouture donned a gold jersey Tuesday, but the senior didn't appear slowed in any way and he even participated in full-team drills with the starting group.

DB shifts: It appears that, for now, Xavier Lewis has been shifted full time to LSU's nickel role. He served Tuesday as the No. 1 nickel in individual work, a spot played by Dwayne Thomas last season.

O, the Buck: Ed Orgeron is not your typical head coach. His history is on the defensive line, and it's tough to get away from that completely. He spent much of Tuesday's practice working with the Tigers' Buck outside linebackers, the position Arden Key plays. With Key out, Isaiah Washington and Sci Martin appear to be getting his reps. Orgeron worked closely with the pair on Tuesday.

Ed Orgeron also appeared on the Culotta and T-Bob radio show on 104.5/104.9 ESPN this morning, where he discussed some of the changes in practice routine as well.
