honestly, he should have been starting last season if there was an honest competition. The company line was he wasn't "mature" enough last offseason, but I don't buy it.
1) He was learning his 3rd offense in 3 years. That is not easy
2) LSU went 13-0 and was crushing teams (other than Bama...and LSU beat them in BDS)
I am a huge Mett guy and think he is going to be phenomenal. But, let's please try to not do the "he would have been just as good last season" based upon an awesome 'this' season.
