  Orgeron said he's pleased with the team's pass rush - tied 18th nationally with an average of three sacks per game - but changes may be made to stop the run. "I think it's all about playing bigger guys up front and playing better technique," Orgeron said. The coaching staff is also still trying to find the best way to use starting safety JaCoby Stevens. Orgeron didn't mention any specific moves, but he said he had Monday meetings with both Stevens and his coaching staff. "They know that we need to put him in better positions for him to make plays and use the talents that he has," Orgeron said. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior has been a hybrid playmaker for LSU. Sometimes Stevens plays deep, but he's mostly used as a rusher near the line of scrimmage. Orgeron has said Stevens plays best closer to the ball, and, so far, Stevens is LSU's second-leading tackler (22) and leads the team in sacks (2). - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU is out of The Associated Press college football poll for the first time since 2017 and is the first defending national champion to drop from the rankings in nine years. No. 1 Clemson, No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia held steady at the top of the rankings Sunday, setting up a top-three matchup Saturday when the Crimson Tide hosts the Bulldogs. Clemson received 59 first-place votes. Alabama got two and Georgia one. Notre Dame moved up to No. 4 and North Carolina is No. 5. LSU dropped out from No. 17 after falling to 1-2 with a 45-41 loss at previously winless Missouri. The Tigers had been ranked in 43 straight polls, dating to Nov. 5, 2017. That was the seventh-longest active streak in the nation. - AP College Football

  The comment from LSU coach Ed Orgeron understandably drew a fair amount of attention. A little more than a week before the start of the Southeastern Conference season, Orgeron was talking about his new defensive coordinator, former Nebraska coach Bo Pelini. "We are so much better on defense right now than any part of the season last year," Orgeron said then. Three weeks into this season, results suggest otherwise. It has become abundantly clear LSU won't be defending its national championship and Orgeron's star-turn might be short-lived. The 17th-ranked Tigers fell to 1-2, upset for the second time this season by an SEC underling. First it was Mississippi State. On Saturday, it was Missouri, playing with a freshman quarterback and missing both its starting receivers, that tore up the Bayou Bengals. "We couldn’t stop anybody. Really poor showing on defense," Orgeron said. - AP College Football

  LSU allowed a Southeastern Conference-record 623 yards passing against Mississippi State on Saturday in Tiger Stadium, and while preventing such production requires the entire defense, the Tigers' secondary struggled in a season-opening 44-34 loss. Mississippi State quarterback K.J. Costello torched LSU's defensive backfield. Playing his first SEC game since transferring from Stanford, Costello thrived in the Bulldogs' new Air Raid offense by attacking No. 6 LSU's young defensive backs. Costello threw five touchdown passes. "Embarrassing," senior safety JaCoby Stevens said. "It's like going into a boxing ring and getting knocked out."

LSU had to play without sophomore All-American cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., who was hospitalized overnight Friday after becoming "acutely ill," LSU said in a statement released Saturday morning. Stingley, whose condition wasn't related to the coronavirus, was suddenly unavailable. The absence of one of the best cornerbacks in college football forced LSU to rely on inexperienced players, and they faltered in man coverage. Coach Ed Orgeron said LSU had "too many missed assignments," allowing Mississippi State players to run wide open. "We have no excuses," Orgeron said. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  The new scheme in Bo Pelini's return to the program as defensive coordinator flopped in its debut. Mississippi State quarterback K.J. Costello set a single-game SEC record with the yardage total, and his five touchdown passes often exploited young and inexperienced LSU defensive backs that couldn't keep up in man coverage. "We couldn't stay with their guys," Orgeron said. Yes, LSU played without its All-American cornerback, Derek Stingley, who spent Friday night in a hospital with a non-coronavirus related illness. Yes, Stingley was initially replaced by Nicholls State graduate transfer Darren Evans, who joined the program less than a month ago. Yes, sophomore Jay Ward didn't practice in camp for two weeks after a "minor operation," Orgeron said, and "was a little behind." But Stevens said the excuses wear out as the points and the yardage starts to pile on. The conversation on the sideline started with "keep your head up, go to the next play," Stevens said. "But as the game goes on, you've got to tell those guys, 'Hey, it's time to step up. You're not a young guy anymore. You've got to represent Louisiana. You're playing for LSU." "We had too many missed assignments," Orgeron said, "and we've got to look at why we're having the missed assignments, what's causing them. Too many guys are running free. Too many guys are getting beat one-on-one. We've just got to go back to looking at if we can cover man-to-man. If we can't, we've got to make a decision to play some zone." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  The Southeastern Conference has launched a league-wide council dedicated to racial equity and social justice, the league announced Thursday. The council is made up of players, administrators, coaches and SEC staff. The council will include more than 60 athletes who are in the SEC's existing student-athlete engagement program, plus administrative leaders from each campus and head coaches from each sport. Dr. Dereck Rovaris, LSU's Vice Provost for Diversity and the school's Chief Diversity Officer, and volleyball head coach Fran Flory will represent LSU on the council.

LSU safety JaCoby Stevens initiated a player-led movement in early June for every football player to register to vote. Stevens said LSU coach Ed Orgeron has been actively supporting, addressing it in team meetings, sending out text messages making sure the players registered. "Right now, we're just kind of waiting for the time to vote," Stevens said Wednesday. "With Coach O, he's kind of taken charge of it and he really backed us on it." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  If Bill Hancock is anything, it is consistent. The executive director of the College Football Playoff said the plan hasn't changed for the CFP even as reports of a shortened season have circulated. Last week, The New York Times reported the 2020 season could be shortened so that conference championship games would be completed by Thanksgiving. Hancock, who joined Lee Shirvanian and me on "The Opening Kickoff" on WNSP-FM 105.5 on Monday, re-iterated the upcoming CFP schedule hasn't changes. The committee will meet in person for the weekly evaluations this season, and the games are still a go for January.

"We are still planning to play the semifinals Jan. 1 and the championship game Jan. 11," Hancock said. "(NCAA president) Dr. (Mark) Emmert and the NCAA have many decisions to make just like everyone in college athletics. "One thing the NCAA has to decide is what to do with the fall championships. The NCAA has shown a lot of flexibility to help everyone get through this, and I think they'll continue to do that, but we're still planning to play Jan. 1 and Jan. 11." Hancock said the CFP committee and boards have not talked about the report as a group, citing it is "too soon to speculate." - Birmingham News

  With less than a week until LSU players can return to campus for summer workouts, head coach Ed Orgeron spoke to 104.5 ESPN's Off the Bench Tuesday morning to discuss position battles between his players. Orgeron also offered insight on his talented secondary and defensive line group, and how safety JaCoby Stevens is his "strongest player." There's so many things that we can do with him. I'm so happy he's back. I think pound-for-pound, JaCoby Stevens is our strongest player. He's a great rusher, he's strong in the weight room - can do a lot of things... We've been looking for a big safety and JaCoby is 6-1, 230. You know, [Bo Pelini] talked to me. We looked at the safety board and he said 'get me a LaRon Landry,' and I said 'I'm looking for him, I promise you.' No question. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  Going into last season, the motivation for the LSU football team was that it was chock full of players and coaches who no one else wanted. The record-tying 14 Tigers selected in last month's NFL draft seemed to contradict that notion, but there is new motivation for 2020, senior safety JaCoby Stevens says: The Tigers don't want to be perceived as "one-hit wonders." "For spring ball, we were ready to get back and prove people wrong," Stevens said Monday night on LSU's in-house radio show "LSU Sixty." "As soon as we won they said we were one-year wonders. For those of us who were coming back, it was time to step up and take that to heart. "When it comes time for us to prove them wrong, we're going to do that."

LSU spring practice came to an abrupt halt in March after just three of the NCAA-mandated 15 sessions because of the coronavirus pandemic, with the spring game set for April 18 at Southern's A.W. Mumford Stadium also canceled. Now Stevens, who has been working out on his own, hopes the mantra will carry over to when the Tigers begin practicing for the 2020 season. He did not speculate on when that would be. "The smart thing to say would be history repeats itself," he said. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU football will retain several key pieces of its national championship team, including several on the defensive side that newly hired coordinator Bo Pelini is excited to inherit. Pelini, who was hired in the offseason to replace former defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, spoke Wednesday on local radio show "Hangin' With Hester." The show was hosted by former LSU players Jacob Hester and T-Bob Hebert, who were both on the Tigers' 2007 national championship team when Pelini was in his first stint in Baton Rouge. Pelini spoke on a number of topics, including what he expects from cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., who earned All-America honors as a true freshman last season. "He's not one of those guys who's gonna rest on his laurels and say 'I've arrived,' " Pelini said on the show. "I think he's only scratched the surface on how good he's gonna be."

Another player Pelini was asked about is safety JaCoby Stevens, another member of LSU's vaunted secondary. As a junior in 2019, Stevens was one of LSU's most productive defensive backs with 85 tackles, 8½ tackles for loss, fives sacks and three interceptions. "He's going to be a guy the NFL - they're just going to be standing in line to try to get this guy on their football team because he can do so many things," Pelini said. "He's tough, he's physical, he's smart. He's got a lot of potential." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU has hired Sean Baker as an analyst, according to the university's official staff directory. Baker spent three seasons at Youngstown State working under then-head coach Bo Pelini, who was hired as LSU's defensive coordinator in January. In 2017, Baker started out as a defensive quality control coach at Youngstown State, and he was elevated to an on-field role coaching linebackers the following two seasons. A former safety at Ball State from 2008-2011, Baker was named first-team All-Mid-American Conference as a senior, and he set the school's career record with 18 interceptions. Baker signed as an undrafted free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012, and he spent five seasons in the NFL with the Bucs, Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns. - Baton Rouge Advocate
