Friday, Nov. 16, 2007
If you want to see why LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey should be considered for the Heisman Trophy then tune in to CBS on Saturday (Nov. 17) at 2:30 p.m. CT and watch the top-ranked Tigers face Ole Miss.
Dorsey (wearing No. 72) will be the defensive tackle who is being blocked by two, sometimes, three players. He’s a game-changer, a game-plan changer and the difference maker for top-ranked LSU.
LSU is currently ranked among the top 10 in the nation in five defensive categories, including No. 1 in total defense (236.8 yards per game), No. 1 in pass efficiency defense (92.62 rating), No. 3 in rushing defense (66.0 yards per game), No. 6 in pass defense (170.8 yards per game) and No. 10 in scoring defense (16.7 points per game).
Through 10 games, here’s what some of the coaches who have faced Dorsey this year have said about the All-American, who decided to hold off on the NFL Draft for one year, to return to LSU for a senior season:
“I look at Dorsey and he is throwing guys around from Virginia Tech and South Carolina like they are rag dolls.”
— Bob Toledo, Tulane head coach
“Dorsey is a man among boys.”
— Rich Brooks, Kentucky head coach
“The Auburn-LSU game last year (2006), that was the first game where everybody realized how dominant Glenn Dorsey was as a player. We did everything possible to block him with one, two, offensive linemen, a tight end at times, a running back. He’s just a great player in a long line of good defensive tackles I’ve seen come out over the years. He kind of reminded me a lot about Warren Sapp, the kid I coached at the University of Miami.”
— Tommy Tuberville, Auburn Head Coach
“I saw his butt going up the field more than he was going backwards. I said it several times over the headset (during the game). I said, ?why don’t we run the other way, because we’re not blocking him.’”
— Nick Saban, Alabama head coach
So, tune in Saturday, Nov. 17 at 2:30 p.m CT on CBS and see why LSU senior defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey should be the first defensive lineman to win the Heisman Trophy.
