Ed Orgeron said Monday that LSU quarterback Max Johnson will remain the starter vs. ULM this weekend as Garrett Nussmeier didn't do enough vs. Arkansas to beat out Johnson for the starting role.

Orgeron added that Garrett and his father Doug Nussmeier, who is the Dallas Cowboys quarterback coach, will have to decide what is best for him and redshirt status. Orgeron suggested that if it were up to him, he would have Nussmeier redshirt this season.

If it were up to him? (this is why he is not a leader) He's a recruiter, he's a dline coach, he can coach certain aspects of the team but he cannot lead young student athletes. They look to him for answers, not questions.

If it were up to him? What the hell? He’s the head coach it is entirely up to him. Jesus Christ please let these last 2 weeks go fast so this idiot is gone from the program and we can find a real head coach. This guy doesn’t just play the loudmouth idiot, he lives that shite day in and day out.

He’s so far behindMax it’s embarrassing to give him more than a quarter of play. With Max we beat Arky.

The redshirt crap should have gone out the window the second Brennan got injured. He's the back up quarterback. Are we trying to win games here?

So he didn't do enough to win the starting job, but he did enough to win it for the last 50 minutes Saturday? Holy cow!!

Orgeron should not have said this. I don't really care what he's thinking, he should not have said this.

I didn't realize that a head coach being paid $5M+ a year is taking advice from his players' parents on who gets to start at one of the country's top programs. :mindblown: When will this nighmare end?

Obviously you didn't, because in situations like that it isn't up to the coach alone. That goes for Alabama players as well.

He’s a lame duck coach. Leaving it completely up to the kid and his family seems like the best thing he could do for LSU at this point.

So you think that players never have a say in whether they redshirt or not? lmao

Coaches don't often determine if a kid is going to redshirt or not. It is typically up to the kid/family. Why would that decision make you speechless?

@CDawson Because like rickgrimes above, they don't know what they think they know.

Is the next step Daddy Nuss becoming the interim? This is hilarious.

It's hilarious that you think players don't decide whether they redshirt or not. Maybe you played too much Ncaa Football back in the day
