LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson (9) fumbles the ball in the BCS Championship Game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Monday, Jan. 9, 2012. (The Birmingham News/Mark Almond) Jordan Jefferson decided to take to the airwaves and make it known that he felt the play calling is the reason for LSU’s loss in the Championship game. The Tigers suffered the first shutout, 21-0, in BCS title game history against Alabama on Jan. 9, 2012. If you all remember, Jefferson was suspended for the first four games of the season because of the fight outside an off-campus bar that resulted in his arrest. “I definitely didn’t expect for [the title game] to play like that,” Jefferson told WCNN on Thursday. “Alabama was a little bit more prepared than us. There was a lot of things that we should’ve did different to catch a rhythm on offense. To win a type of game like that, you’ve got to win all three phases — offense, defense and special teams — and we just didn’t get over that hump to winning those phases. We kind of fell short in that game.” Jordon went on to say that he felt LSU should have spread Alabama out more and that many plays the coaching staff drew up, weren’t used. Now, this is coming from the Quarterback that had 53 yards passing, an interception and 15 rushing yards. So Jordan, you are just going to throw your teammates and coaching staff under the bus without taking ANY accountability for your own actions on the field?? “We have great [wide receivers] and sometimes we just wonder why we don’t use those guys. But we’re not the one calling the plays. We still have to go out and execute what the coaches and coordinators are calling. We can’t complain as players, but sometimes we do question that.” Most people who viewed the BCS Championship game called out Jefferson for his lack of skills on offense. Many times he was on the field looking dazed & confused. Almost as if he had no idea what was going on. If you ask me, Alabama just stunned them with the better game plan. To put all of the blame on the game plan is not the smartest thing to do Jordan. Please realize that you had a lot to do with that. Most of LSU’s wins this season happened because of the defense and their ability to keep you in the game. The bad game plan isn’t what made your throws inaccurate Jordan, that was your lack of skill. The next time you decide to blame the game plan, check out what you did on film FIRST!
