Jarrett Lee: The Saviour of LSU Football?!

Now that Jordan Jefferson's been suspended indefinitely after getting arrested for his part in a bar fight in Baton Rouge a few days ago, Jarrett Lee's back at quarterback for the Tigers for the showdown with the Oregon Ducks next week.


Although we'd love to laugh at Les Miles' decision to put the senior in behind the huddle bearing in mind ahead of Zach Mettenberger, we've been reminded by SEC writer Chris Low that this Lee might not be that bad.

He reminded us that yes, Lee was the guy who threw the winning touchdown at Florida in the best game of 2010 (or was it the one that gave us the most pleasure?). And that was Lee who threw the bullet that stomped on Alabama in one of the other best games of 2010 (Come on....Even You - LSU hater - can admit that LSU's season last year was fun....).

Although I'd argue with Low on this point. We still don't think he's a great quarterback.

In his first full year at LSU, he threw a mighty 13 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. In 2009 and 2010, he didn't start, and ended up with 2-1, 2-1 TD: INT ratio.

And we don't think he'll be the solution against Oregon - even though Cliff Harris is suspended because of his own issues....

But today, we'll give him a break. Look away Gator fans....
