Who Will be LSU’s Starting Quarterback This Season?
That's the question on every LSU fan's mind with the next season on the horizon...
The days of Joe Burrow wearing purple and gold are long gone. In fact, it feels like a decade ago or longer when LSU was home to the best college quarterback of all-time. It probably feels that long ago because everything pre-COVID seems like a lifetime ago. Couple the pandemic with last season's sub-par season for LSU, and our winning days with stellar quarterback play seem like they reside deep into our rearview mirror.
Here's the good news... LSU is still one of the most sought-after colleges for recruits, and Coach O is one of the nation's best recruiters. So who will be LSU's starting quarterback in 2021 and beyond? Well, we've narrowed our list down to four, so there's a start.
This past Saturday during LSU's spring game, we witnessed four quarterbacks take snaps... All four combined for 512 yards and four touchdowns. Basically one half of play from Joe Burrow. Alas, Burrow is gone and one of these four must take the reigns and attempt to get our Tigers back to their 2019 offensive ways.
Of the four quarterbacks in the spring game, sophomore Max Johnson had the best day. He threw for 180 yards with two touchdowns. Last year's starter (before injury) Myles Brennan threw for 112 yards and one touchdown. Not the best performance from the favorite to say the least. T.J. Finley threw for 84 yards and no touchdowns while the newest QB on the field, Garrett Nussmeier, threw for 132 yards and a touchdown, but was intercepted three times.
So LSU fans, which one of the four listed above do you anticipate leading our Tigers this season?
