(WVUE) -

The Tennessee-LSU matchup is now a full of intrigue with the firing of Butch Jones by the Vols. Interim coach Brady Hoke shut down practice to the media this week to put his own stamp on the squad. But don't look to much into the rash changes of the program.

"You know they can't change much. Obviously I've been there. Obviously they're going to tweak some things, put his spin on it. I know he's going to do a good job. Every game you got new plays, you got new formations, you have to adjust. We're not going to spend all week trying to figure it out. We're going to study what they do best," said LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron.

Last week cries for Myles Brennan to start at quarterback heated up. A week later, Coach O is still sticking with Danny Etling.

"Danny before the game was hurt. Jack came to me and said it's going to be tough today. We believe in Danny, and he's going to get it done. Throughout the first half it wasn't pretty, 7-7. I went in at halftime, looked at Danny, said we believe in you. You're going to get it done, let's go. He had a tremendous game. We believe in Danny. We believe in the positives he brings to the football team. He's one of the toughest guys. He's a silent leader, wants to win," said Orgeron.
