BATON ROUGE, LA: LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron and his Fighting Tigers football team head into the 2021 Spring Football Session coming off of one of the most disappointing seasons in the history of the program.
”I understand LSU’s expectations,” said Orgeron. “I said it when I was hired. Nobody has to tell me what LSU’s expectations are. I know what they are and I invite them. And I expect that of me and my staff. And two years ago, we had the best team in the world. But it seems like some people have forgotten that. And I understand that but 5-5 doesn’t cut it. There’s no excuse. We’ve got to get better.”
The big story reported on Tuesday was quarterback Max Johnson taking snaps with the first unit. It's obviously a decision that Coach O had made was based on Johnson leading the team to two huge wins to end last season. LSU has something this season that I don't think they have ever had, which is an abundance of very talented quarterbacks on the roster. Each who are capable of starting. The position is oozing with potential and talent.
I personally believe that Myles Brennan will be the quarterback for LSU this season, leading the team to a special season while putting up Heisman winning numbers. He's the senior. The team leader. My opinion, the best man for the job.
Spring football practice is here and the Tigers have a lot of work to do over this session, as they look to turn things around and compete for another national championship.
LSU will have two more practices this week on Thursday, then on Saturday before taking a couple of days off..
