“I think I’ve done a pretty good job,” he says. “I don’t think I’ve taken a step back in any sense of the word. (I’ll) just continue to keep working.”
He also responded to coach Ed Orgeron’s comments earlier in the day, which involved Etling remaining the starter unless he struggled. Etling said that’s how things usually are:
“It just sounds like a normal thing to me,” he said.
LSU takes on a struggling Arkansas defense this weekend, so Etling and his teammates will have a chance to get back on track as they try to finish the regular season on a high note.
