Jefferson: “It’s Time For LSU To Win The National Championship Game”

Jordan Jefferson — the quarterback incumbent most Tiger fans wanted to see unseated this spring — believes LSU’s goals for the fall should be extremely high.

“It’s how I feel deep down,” Jefferson said.  “It’s time for LSU to win the national championship game.  It’s how we all feel.”

Ted Lewis of The New Orleans Times-Picayune believes the Tigers should indeed be considered a favorite for this year’s BCS crown along with Alabama and Oklahoma:


Since quarterback is the only real question mark about the team and the position appears better with Jefferson back for a third year as a starter and junior college transfer Zach Mettenberger waiting in the wings, there’s no reason to believe that the Tigers won’t end their season playing for the national championship at the Superdome — just as they did in 2003 and 2007.


Well, a brutal schedule might be one reason for doubt.  An opener with Oregon in Texas and a road trip to West Virginia highlight the nonconference slate while this year’s game with Bama — which could be a battle for the West Division, SEC and perhaps even national championship — is in Tuscaloosa.

However, a schedule that tough could make it possible for the Tigers to drop a game and still reach the BCS title game.

For his part, Jefferson likes the fact that LSU is getting plenty of preseason spotlight.  “It’s a great spot to be in.  It means we’re being recognized for the talent we have on this team.  We want to be #1 when we start.  And we plan to be #1 when we finish.”

For all of Jefferson’s passing woes and Les Miles’ propensity for head-scratching decisions, the Tigers still managed to finish 11-2 last season.  So smirk if you like — and we at MrSEC.com often do when it comes to Miles — but LSU, Jefferson and The Hat could absolutely hoist the crystal football next January.
