Per The media has been playing quarterback as much as the quarterback prospects at LSU lately.

The most popular questions leading up to spring practice and after two days of drills have been about the position. Will you name a starter by the end of spring practice? Who would be your starter if there was a game tomorrow? Will Russell Shepard get a look at another position?

And the quarterback position has no entrenched starter and no one who has played well on the collegiate level for a significant amount of time. Jordan Jefferson is the most recent starting quarterback as he finished the 2008 season as the starter, but he had only two starts and is going through his first spring drills as a true freshman. Jarrett Lee started eight games last season as a redshirt freshman, but he lost the job to Jefferson after throwing 16 interceptions, including an NCAA record eight that were returned for touchdowns.

Agreed. It seems every year the media wants to make a mockery of the LSU quarterback situtation. JJ is the starter. If he would happen to blow it, then someone else may get a shot, but it's his position to lose. Let it go and let the team concetrate on getting better as a unit....

Well after Miles is sure of the QB situation, we will still be hearing that it is not settled. I doubt the starting QB will be publicly named until the week before the first game of the season.

I definitely agree. They try to make something out of nothing, ruing team chemistry. We have a QB, find another school to pick on.

"More questions than answers at quarterback"

Only because the ones with the questions don't have a clue what's happening, and the ones with the answers aren't under any obligation to tell what they know.
