Remember when LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson got all brawl-y and got himself suspended for being a part of an assault on what has regularly been described as a defenseless man. Well, that happened way back on August 19th, so maybe Jefferson has forgotten all about it. And now he thinks he should be LSU’s starting quarterback now that he’s no longer suspended.

Jefferson told reporters on Monday that his goal is to be the starter and he’s going to do whatever it takes to get there. I’m gonna go ahead and presume that when he says “whatever it takes” he doesn’t mean he’s planning on jumping and beating the crap out of current starter Jarrett Lee. Though given Jefferson’s history we can’t rule anything out.

Jefferson said the following about his current status:

“I don’t feel like I’m behind. I’ve been working out a lot. I’ve been in the toughest battles there are. I have a 20-7 record which is very high for a quarterback at LSU. I’ve been leading LSU for three years. When coach (Les) Miles puts me in, I can help this team win.”

Uh, Jordan? You’re bragging about being 20-7 over the past few years with as much talent surrounding you as anyone in the country? Really?

 

LSU fans and SEC observers have argued quite successfully that you were the thing holding LSU back over the past three seasons…well you and former offensive coordinator Gary Crowton. So for you to step in after you screwed yourself over and think you’re going to walk back into a starting job after Lee has expertly led the Tigers to the top spot in the polls against a brutal schedule is just ridiculous.

Right now Lee has a quarterback rating of 140.5, with seven touchdowns and just one interception. In those years where you were “leading” LSU to a 20-7 record, your best quarterback rating was 137.2, and as a junior last season when you should have been at your best, you racked up a rating of 114.7.

So yeah Jordan, just sit your ass on the bench and think about what you’ve done.

If there is any justice in the world, Jefferson’s disappointing career will have ended when he broke curfew, went to a bar and got into a fight.
