Head coach Ed Orgeron met with the media after practice on Wednesday and provide a few updates on LSU's ongoing quarterback competition.

Senior Danny Elting continues to be the teams No. 1 quarterback while Myles Brennan, Justin McMillan, Lowell Narcisse and Lindsey Scott Jr. are all tied for the No. 2 spot, according to Orgeron.

Brennan, a true freshman from Bay St. Louis, Mississippi who arrived on campus this summer, received high praise from Coach O later in the media session Wednesday. Per The Advocate:

“Myles Brennan comes from a passing offense. He is a natural thrower. He still has to learn the offense, still has to be more comfortable with his reads, but his release and his ability to throw the ball is very special,” Orgeron said. “I tell you what — it’s just fun to see, fun to see the ball come out of his hands. You know? We’ve got to bring him along when he’s ready. We’re not going to throw him into the fire. That’s the worst thing we can do. We need to let him develop, let Lowell Narcisse develop, give them an opportunity to compete, and when they’re ready, give them a chance.”

There is no tie. Brennan is #2.

I've thought all along his plan was to learn football at LSU for 2-3 years before transferring to Harvard.

Coach O would be abusing the media if he let the media see how much better brennan throws the ball so than etling. I will not show up early for any of the games that etling is scheduled to start over brennan because I don't want my eyes to melt.

You make it sound like Etling is cancer to this team. He did well last season. He'll make a play if the receivers create separation

Do us a favor and just don't go to any games.

I dont believe for 1 second that all 4 qbs are tied at #2..........but neither does O. he's just doing what he's gotta do

It's not a bad way to go about it. Tell the public they are all number two so no one knows where they truly are and have to still compete for #2. I would keep it that way until I had to anounce another QB or if one clearly separates and they all know it.

Brennan had more attempts than the others at their 1st scrimmage if that tells you anything
