The grand jury has cleared linebacker Josh Johns of all charges in the now famous "bar fight" and they have reduced the charges against QB Jordan Jefferson to a misdemeanor. This allows both young men to be re-enstated to LSU and the football squad.
Here is my question.... Do you give the starting job back to Jefferson? According several of our news polls - the public is about 50/50 on this. I just don't understand that. Maybe I am just to hard on people. OK yes, if they are cleared of the charges then fine allow them back on the team. But they broke team rules by being at the bar and being in a public fight in the first place. Why should he be handed the starting role back? If he re-earns it on the field - that's one thing but why would you take control away from Lee who stepped up and took on a huge leadership role when this happened? Lee has taken the team on a 4 - 0 start to the season, in some poles LSU is #1 in the country. Lee has completed 64 percent of his passes (56 of 87) for 624 yards and six touchdowns. He has thrown just one interception, and LSU is scoring 38.8 points per game. So why should he lose his starting role? I just don't get it.
Les Miles stated last night in his press conference that he was sticking with Lee (FOR NOW) and Jefferson would be his backup. There has been some public out-cry that this is not fair. Jefferson should be given the starting job back. I disagree - for reasons I stated above.
YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS???
