That is, a strong rushing attack with a passing game who’s calling card was its ability to ruin a sound offensive gameplan. Zach Mettenberger’s quarterback rating in the month of October was 85.01 and he averaged 134 passing yards a game, while throwing a...

LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger taunted Alabama fans with a phone gesture after throwing a touchdown pass to give the Tigers a fourth-quarter lead over the Crimson Tide on Saturday.

Zach Mettenberger was never supposed to be the question.
Mettenberger, who began his career at Georgia, consistently offered an answer, a solution to other teams' problems. He provided an answer for Butler (Kan.) Community College, leading the Grizzlies to the JUCO national title game. During his re-recruitment, FBS programs across the country needed an experienced signal caller...
LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger was supposed to be the savior for the LSU offense, so far this season that hasn’t happened at all.

He arrived with so much promise. Even though it seems like forever ago, rabid Georgia fans can't forget the day Oconee County star quarterback Zach Mettenberger arrived in Athens: big, strong, and possessing a canon arm that had many expecting another Matthew Stafford-type career.
Things didn't work out that way. A much smaller Aaron Murray moved to the top of Mark Richt...

Here is Zach Mettenberger, the future starting quarterback for the LSU Tigers. LSU fans can be happy that he is only POINTING to Blutarsky chugging a bottle of Jack instead of actually doing so himself. Maybe the Tiger’s quarterback woes will end this season, but Mettenberger doesn’t have the greatest track record. Mettenberger was dismissed from the Georgia Bulldogs football...
