LSU QB Brandon Harris says he has the best arm and the best team in college football
LSU quarterback Brandon Harris doesn’t lack confidence these days.
On Friday, Harris responded to skeptics by heaping high praise upon himself and his team. Is it too much after he threw for 2,165 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions last year? You be the judge.

Harris on last year: "I take full responsibility for last year. I was terrible. I was bad. Didn't live up to expectation." #LSU

Harris definitely has room to improve after some inconsistency last season when LSU went 9-3 with a victory in the Texas Bowl. He completed just 6-of-19 passes for 128 yards in a loss to Alabama, and he was intercepted twice in a 21-point defeat to Ole Miss. He didn’t inspire against Texas A&M either, when he completed 7-of-21 passes for 83 yards and one interception.
This week, Harris hasn’t been shy about voicing his belief in his team. On Thursday, he said LSU was “going to be dangerous to stop” if everyone executed in the proper way.
It’s a good sign that Harris believes in his abilities and LSU’s overall potential this season. And it’s also a positive thing that he recognizes his shortcomings from last year. But it might have been more wise to tone down the “best” talk until proving it on the field.
