And if they do return to form in 09, well it will just be an amazing job by that staff. Its not impossible, but not likely.
Actually, it's far more likely than not, given the fact that Chavis produced a top three in the SEC defense nine times in his fourteen years as DC at UT.
Add that to the fact that LSU is ONE year removed from having the top defense in the SEC, has recruited very well over the last five years, and Miles and Chavis now have the best defensive staff they've ever had in their careers.
The LSU defense finished ninth in the conference in scoring defense last year. UT finished 3rd, and was tied for tops overall.
I expect to see LSU to be in the top three in defense in both categories, which will be made easier because the offense will be at or near the top of the conference.
