LSU's DeAngelo Peterson Still Baffled By Championship Game Offense

The LSU Tigers didn't get much of an offense going against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the BCS National Championship Game, famously not crossing the 50 until late. Instead of working from their standard offense, the Tigers went all-in on an unfamiliar, option-heavy attack apparently inspired by Georgia Southern's frisky showing against Bama.

Tight end DeAngelo Peterson, who's working out at the Senior Bowl, still isn't sure where that title game plan came from:

"The game plan was to spread the ball out, get the ball to me, get the ball to Rueben (Randle), let Russell (Shepard) run the ball every now and then, give the ball to our running backs. In that game, Russell played like two plays, Rueben had like one ball, I had one ball. I think they went away from the game plan."

Peterson is expected to be picked in the later rounds, hopefully by a team that doesn't run the triple option, I think.
