Former LSU quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. made his debut for East Mississippi Community College on Thursday night, leading his team to a 47-34 win over Jones County Junior College.

Scott reportedly threw for 535 yards with five touchdowns. Per The Meridian Star:
quote:

“You definitely have to get back in the groove of things since it’s been a while since I’ve played a football game live, and I’ve learned a lot of things on my journey to this field,” Scott Jr. said. “But it feels really good to get back on the field. I told someone else it’s like Christmas morning — I get to wake up and play football. All glory to God. This is really exciting.”

Nothing but best wishes for him and I would love to see him playing for Harvard. But that clip looked like a high school game. Taking nothing away from Scott, but nothing there shows anything noteworthy.

Good for him. This guy helped LSU out of jam that year with QB recruiting. He was loyal and I wish him nothing but the best.

We let the best quarterback on our roster walk out the door. This guy is going to have a great career

Chill, Paco. It's Community College. Pretty sure any of our qb's could throw for 400 yards against that competition.

Quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr., who arrived in Scooba from LSU two weeks ago and hadn’t started a game since 2015, threw for 418 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for 54 yards and threw two interceptions

I read the Meridian newspaper and it said 4 TD's not 5 and 418 yards not 535

Wish the multi-talented guy the best! Unless he plays against LSU in which case the worst just for that day, then back to the best!

?? that moment when you say "What could have been"

I hope no one actually believes this. Really shows how dumb the LSU fan base really is.

What could have been? They kid is throwing in the JUCO leagues. That's like saying that if I can absolutely run over my kids peewee football league I should be in the NFL.

fm33 this guy learned a new offense in 2 weeks, throws for 400+ yards and 4 touchdowns and you choose to shite on it? WOW! Did you sst the same abiut Mett's accomplishment in JC? I dont recall anyone downplaying his stats which were cited as proof we were getting a great QB.

I wouldn't be shocked if this kid becomes another Russell Wilson. Sometimes if life you just need people to believe in you and give you a chance.

I would be shocked if this kid wins a Super Bowl

Hopefully after one year there, he transfers to Harvard and wrecks the Ivy before going pro.

Good for him. And after seeing him play it ought to make you feel better about our qb situation considering there were several guys ahead of him

15 yard pass. That receiver did all the work yards after catch

Goddammit! I'm from Zachary and have rooting for this kid to play at LSU for a while

I think there were 4 TD passes. Beautiful tear drop in the corner of the endzone in 1st quarter

this kid had a chance to get a harvard education 2 years ago...and now he's at a juco? Where are his priorities?
Reply50 months
i've wondered about this too. the nfl finds talent. if he did well at harvard, he'd get a shot at the nfl.

It could be that he's been groomed to do what he does, and so happens to be extremely intelligent. But its clear where his priorities are.

I think the kid was groomed to do what he does. Comes from money, and a lot of smart people directing him.

i hate to say it, but he looks exactly like the dan mullen prototype..
Reply50 months
Question remains. Was he given a legitimate shot and the QB spot based on talent alone, or did politics run him off?
Reply50 months
Not a question any more. We got our QB of the future, and Scott made a move that was probably better for him.
