Found November 15, 2011 on Fox Sports:
PLAYERS: Morris Claiborne
TEAMS: LSU Tigers
Cornerback Morris Claiborne says he and teammates often talk about how they'd like the Tigers' 2011 defense to be remembered as best LSU ever had. That's a tall order considering the strong defenses fielded by LSU national title teams in 2003 and 2007, which each sent a handful of players on to the NFL. Yet this year's fast, play-making defense compares well to its predecessors and is a major reason why LSU is 10-0 for the first time since 1958. LSU is giving up 10.7 points and 253.2 yards per game, has registered 24 sacks and forced 21 turnovers. This year's defense also has held up against vastly different offenses, ranging from Oregon's prolific ''Quack Attack'' to Alabama's physical running game. The Tigers play at Mississippi on Saturday.
