The quarterback derby is still in its opening stages and I would imagine you won't hear anything concrete for a couple weeks. Especially if coach Les Miles keeps dropping quotes like this:
[Jordan] Jefferson, who has been working with the other freshmen in the afternoon workouts, appears to have the best arm of the three quarterbacks. Asked if Jefferson continues to impress, Miles said, "Yeah, I think we'll really," but didn't finish the sentence.
"I think he's capable," Miles said after restarting. "I think he's a guy that's going to have to take snaps for us."
Charles Scott is a football player. Period.
Scott is apparently toting his lunch pail to practice this season, taking a do-whatever-it-takes attitude to his assigned duties.
One of the early rumblings at practice has been about sightings of Scott working out at fullback along with his tailback duties.
"If you need me to put my hand in the dirt and block, I can," Scott said. "It doesn’t matter to me."
Call it Scott’s endeavor to channel his inner Jacob Hester.
How sweet would it be to see him and Richard Murphy or Keiland Williams in the backfield at times, a la Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown for Auburn circa 2004. How did that work out?
CFN, the best in the business has LSU ranked sixth in its preseason rankings. The top five? Ohio State, Georgia, USC, Florida, Oklahoma.
I get it. LSU doesn't have any experience at quarterback. It also didn't have that much last year either when Matt Flynn had started only one game before leading the Tigers to the national championship.
Craig Steltz is standing out in camp for the Chicago Bears.
I love ESPN -- when it stops talking about the NFL for long enough to do something like this.
