Always the fall back position for the negative guys. If there was improvement, it wasn't cause of the LSU staff. If there was no improvement, it was cause of the LSU staff. Nonsense, but typical. :usa:

That sounds a lot like the extreme claims many on the Rant were making in 08 and 09 bout JL.
Truth is, none of know what teenage QBs can mature into as their time in the program grows.

True and by far. I don't see how that even can be debated.
[quote]Lee was certainly better in '11 than in '08[/quote]
JL's play in 2011, but for Bama, can't even be compared to what he produced in 08, 09, or 2010. And JJ's play in 2011, but for the 2...

Based off what???
Look, I don't care who starts, but I don't understand this "Harris is the guy" stuff. What exactly did Harris do in the SEC so much better than Jennings that makes him the starter hands down?
I hope one of them steps up, but I haven't s...

[quote] After the spring game [/quote]
It's not really a game. It's a scrimmage where 1/2 of the team plays the other 1/2 of the team. I recall a starting throwing 5 ints. in one of them and going on to QB the team to a NC. They are a practice session just like the 20 others in the spring.

It's a dead period in recruiting. Could there be a better time to conduct a search that LSU couldn't even start till Jan.?
Who was that LSU HC who claimed LSU fans continually suffered from a "catastrophe syndrome"? :usa:

Not deciding yet on whether a tr. So. or tr. Fr. will develop into SEC QBs does not equate to thinking our QB position is "ok". More Rant delusion. imo
