Jennings on LSU offense: "getting faster"

BATON ROUGE - For an offense in college football, it's all about tempo, and according to LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings, that tempo is getting better all the time. 

Jennings (a redshirt freshman) admits that he can't move the team in and out of the huddle as quickly as his predecessor Zach Mettenberger (a senior), but he did say that his offense has already picked up the pace in just a few short weeks of spring practice. 

Jennings also said he's trying to apply what he learned from last year to get the team back to that Mettenberger-type-speed quickly. "It's the same plays as last year, we're just trying to build the foundation right now," Jennings said after practice Tuesday. "I don't want to be treated like a rookie again."

Jennings said the team has been experimenting with some designed quarterback running back plays, and safety Jalen Mills said the Tigers have added a scramble drill on offense for those inevitable moments when a play breaks down and the offense must improvise.
