Fans of the barely-reined chaos that rules the day in LSU's Tiger Stadium (this is not necessarily a population swath that overlaps perfectly with "fans of LSU", mind), rejoice: The arrival of Georgia castoff Zach Mettenberger in Baton Rouge will not necessarily spell the end of the two-headed, oft-reviled quarterback system Les Miles ran with to such glorious excess in 2010. Here's the Mad Hatter on his current depth chart:
Jarrett Lee has a very distinct advantage over the time he's been in the system, and he throws the ball very well. Mettenberger has some time. He's taking advantage of his coaching. Currently, it will be Jefferson and Lee, then Mettenberger.
Jefferson was lustily booed on several occasions by his own student section last season, and we can't decide whether we like Lee's 2008 touchdown-interception ratio (13/16) or his 2010 numbers (2/1) more, but either way, this decision has a Jeff-Goldblum-in-Jurassic-Park quality to it that portends another year of all hell breaking loose every weekend Les Miles strides a sideline. (So, business as usual.)
