Les Miles: ‘If Brandon Harris stays within the scheme, he will be fine’

The LSU Tigers dropped their season opener against the Wisconsin Badgers this past Saturday and it was certainly not a good day for their offense. Quarterback Brandon Harris had an awful day, throwing for just 131 yards and two interceptions, but head coach Les Miles doesn’t seem ready to pull him off the field.

Miles spoke with several reporters on Wednesday and he harped on the interception that Harris threw near the end of the game, pointing out that they lost the chance to kick a possible game-winning field goal. He then went on to say that they would likely be sticking with Harris as long as he can continue to run their offense the way they want it ran.

If Harris isn’t able to perform much better than he did last week, then they will almost have to look in a different direction. That direction may be in the form of true freshman Lindsey Scott Jr. or Purdue transfer Danny Etling, who is the only other quarterback on roster with some kind of experience.

He threw for nearly 2,500 yards and 16 touchdowns in two seasons with the Boilermakers before transferring to LSU ahead of the 2015 season.

The Tigers face off against FCS powerhouse Jacksonville State this weekend.
