LSU sophomore quarterback Brandon Harris has been taking the starting snaps during practice and scrimmage this fall and says "the game has slowed down a lot" for him.

Here is what he had to say about his play this fall camp during LSU's media day on Sunday, per

"The game has slowed down a lot," said Harris, who struggled through a freshman season that included a disaster in his only start, at Auburn. "When you get to the point where you don't have to do too much thinking, you can play fast. By play fast I mean get the ball out of your hand quick and make decisions. That's what it's all about playing quarterback. Now you'll be able to have fun and not overthink things.

"My knowledge of the game has improved. I'm not trying to go off of just talent. I know where I want to go with the ball. It's realizing my job as the quarterback is to distribute the ball. I don't have to make plays. I've got a great running back who is an All-American. We've got All-American wide receivers. Great tight ends and a great offensive line."
Harris "is much more comfortable now in his play", according to the head coach Les Miles. He is receiving the starting snap ahead of junior quarterback Anthony Jennings who missed time during the spring.

Fournette said the same thing, and he had some monster games at the end of the year.

There is a big difference from dictating what happens on each play, and reacting to the play.

Hopefully he is able to start dictating what happens, IMO this is a lot of what our QBs have been lacking the last 5 years or so (outside of mett 2013)
