LSU Football 2011: Tigers' Offense Seeks Continuity Sans Kragthorpe

SB Nation's LSU community preaches calm and takes comfort in continuity following Steve Kragthorpe's Parkinson's Disease diagnosis and the subsequent shuffling of the Tigers' offensive coaching staff:

Stud has served as an offensive coordinator before (Bowling Green, 2003-2006), and that experience is extremely important in this setting. It's the start of fall camp, so any sort of dramatic offensive shift isn't just unrealistic, but unwise. Continuity in the offense that LSU is currently working on is huge. I would imagine that experience would further explain why this job would go to Studrawa rather than Billy Gonzales. [...] The main question will be just how active is Kragthorpe able to be on a day-to-day basis. If that changes, Studrawa could wind up pulled in different directions, and we've seen instances where good offensive line coaches suffer from that sort of an increased role. But, as I said above, LSU still has the same players, and the same playbook it had this morning.
