Ed Orgeron puts QB controversy to bed, but warns Myles Brennan
LSU coach Ed Orgeron has tried to tamp down any possible talk of a quarterback controversy following T.J. Finley’s solid debut on Saturday in light of Myles Brennan’s injury.
During a Monday morning appearance on “SEC This Morning,” Orgeron commented on fans’ talk of Finley possibly replacing Brennan, who missed the South Carolina game with a significant lower body injury suffered at Missouri.
“Twitter and message boards don’t exist in our office here,” Orgeron said with a chuckle. “Myles Brennan is our starting quarterback.”
Talking with Peter Burns, Orgeron was asked how he manages the quarterbacks in the age of transfers, especially among high-profile young quarterbacks.
“The best man wins around here,” Orgeron said. “I tell our guys the depth chart, that’s just a saying. Myles is not going to lose his starting position because he got hurt. He had three phenomenal games for us. I believe in Myles, but also believe in T.J. and also believe in Max. The best man’s going to play. Right now it’s Myles Brennan. Myles goes in the game and he plays like he should, he’s our quarterback. If he doesn’t, I’ll put in T.J., it’s easy.”
LSU returns to action at Auburn this week in a game that will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. local time on CBS.
