LSU fans have eagerly awaited for head coach Les Miles to announce who will be the starting quarterback for the Tigers this upcoming season.
However, even Miles does not have a definite answer.
On Monday, Miles stated that both sophomore Anthony Jennings and freshman Brandon Harris will play versus Wisconsin this Saturday night but failed to mention who would actually start.
”Our team understands that we have talented quarterbacks,” Miles stated ”But right now they have not separated themselves, and we are not certain. If we were certain, then I promise you, we would play the one guy that would give us all the advantage.
Jennings was expected to be the starter after backing up Zach Mettenberger last season. After Mettenberger went down with a knee injury against Arkansas last November, Jennings threw a 49 yard touchdown to Travin Dural that sealed the win for LSU. On New Years day, he struggled in his first start against Iowa in the Outback Bowl, completing 7 of 19 passes for only 82 yards and one interception.
After arriving in Baton Rouge this spring, Brandon Harris pushed Jennings in practice and played very well in the spring game, throwing for 195 yards and three touchdowns.
It is an interesting approach by Miles since the Tigers are playing a hard-nosed Wisconsin team.
Jennings and Harris better bring their A-game or the Tigers could start the season on a sour note, and one of the two could find himself removed from the competition.
