BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU's defense seemed easy to figure out coming into the season.

The Tigers were dominant because of a defensive line loaded with NFL prospects and a secondary with a Heisman Trophy candidate in Tyrann Mathieu who was going to harass opponents into turnovers and create touchdowns for the sometimes stagnant offense. The linebackers, unspectacular a season ago, were sort of along for the ride.

It didn't quite work out that way.
