Quarterback play

The biggest and most publicized concern for the LSU football team is by far the quarterback position.

In addition to having the worst passing attack in the SEC in 2014, the Tigers have still not found their starting quarterback for the upcoming season. Anthony Jennings is the returning starter, but after completing less than half of his passes a year ago, fans have been calling for highly-touted sophomore Brandon Harris to take over.

Les Miles still will not commit to Harris as the starter, however, despite Jennings currently being suspended indefinitely from the team.

Harris’ play last season provided glimpses of hope, but it also featured major setbacks. Most notable was completing 3-of-14 passes during a 41-7 blowout loss to Auburn, his only start of the year. Teammates have expressed plenty of confidence in the young signal caller this offseason, but it will be impossible to tell how far he has progressed until he steps onto the football field.

Perhaps the most worrisome aspect of LSU’s ongoing quarterback competition is the fact that they do not have the luxury of time to figure out a starter. After a cakewalk against McNeese State to start the season, the Tigers have Mississippi State and Auburn on the schedule. If uncertainty at the quarterback position remains an issue heading into these games, a 1-2 start is a very real possibility for LSU.
