Jarrett Lee did not see any action during LSU’s National Championship Game loss to Alabama despite the ineffectiveness of Jordan Jefferson. Many people wondered why LSU never made a quarterback switch, especially Bobby Hebert, who went on a crazy rant afterwards. Lee spoke about the game recently and said he was frustrated standing on the sidelines.

“I just feel like I could have been given the chance, had an opportunity to come in and get something going, you know, give them, Alabama, something else to worry about, but you know, it is what it is,” he told Scout.com.

“It was very frustrating. I just kind of feel like I could have come in … I don’t know if I could have come in and won the game, but I just felt like I could have given us an opportunity, or something more,” he said.

Lee recognizes the team had a special year, but he was disappointed he didn’t have a chance to help the team in the title game. He also says he thought they were going to make a switch at some point, which probably makes matters even more frustrating.

As I said the night of the game, I understood why Les Miles stuck with Jordan Jefferson. I also would have understood if he made a change and went to Lee. LSU probably would have lost either way, but you never know what could have happened.
