GeauxTigerNation writers Gary Laney and David Helman get you ready for the season with a daily breakdown throughout August of what LSU is facing in the fall, from its opponents, to its road trips to who it's recruiting. Today, Gary Laney asked the questions in a Q&A with Hugh Kellenberger, who covers Ole Miss for the Jackson Clarion-Ledger. For more with Kellenberger, see the GTN Chute:

Q: Hugh Freeze has engineered quick turnarounds coaching at the NAIA level and in the Sun Belt Conference for Arkansas State. Has he hit bitten off more than he can chew this time with Ole Miss?

He's inheriting a team that is probably similar in talent as compared to his opposition as he has at Lambuth and Arkansas State, but he also didn't face Nick Saban or Les Miles at either of those stops. That's probably his biggest challenge to making another quick turnaround.
LSU's Talented Youth
LSU head coach Les Miles talks about the loss of talent to the NFL Draft, how he will replace quarterback Zach Mettenberger and his expectations for running back Leonard Fournette.
