It wasn't just Burrow. LSU has lost more personnel than any of the last 15 national champions. They also lost a starting nickleback, a DT and a star WR to opting out. Add the passing game coordinator and defensive coordinator and it spells trouble.
not saying they're world beaters or anything, but MSU's offense is doing better than I thought they would, especially since it's a completely different system, this off season was weird (don't think they had spring practice and the fall camps have been different from normal), and it's the first game of the year
