LSU's "Big Cat Drill" symbolizes what football is all about, and it separates the men from the boys.
The drill consists of an LSU player representing the defense lining up against another teammate representing the offense, and then they clash heads. It's basically a battle in the trenches, and whoever gives up the most ground loses.
What makes the drill so great, though, isn't the helmet-to-helmet clash, but it's the defensive players and coaches getting behind their man while the offensive players and coaches getting behind theirs.
This is the drill that brings the team together in unity and allows players to earn their comrades' respect, and as a fan, it's a joy to watch.
These were the best one-on-one encounters during the "Big Cat Drill" so far this spring.
