Will LSU Have A “Fat Cat” Quarterback In Liggins?

A decade ago, Kentucky was quarterbacked by just about the biggest man you’ll ever see behind center.  Jared Lorenzen was 6-4 and his weight was listed as being anywhere from 285 to 315.  From the “Fat Cat” to “Battleship Lorenzen” to “The Pillsbury Throwboy” (a personal favorite), UK’s jumbo-sized QB drew as much attention for his size as he did his record-setting success in the Bluegrass State.

Soon there may be a new quarterback casting a big shadow across the SEC.

LSU signee Jeremy Liggins is listed at 6-3, 270 pounds.  But Les Miles says his future field general is a bit heftier than that number now:


“He’s probably closer to 280 than 270 right now.  So if a defensive lineman rushing the passer came loose, he might want to bring a friend.  He might not get it done by himself.”


Liggins high school coach says “his weight is an issue” but he believes the LSU staff can help with that.  Liggins agrees. 

“It’s not going to be as bad as people think,” he said of shedding some excess pounds.  “I probably have to lose 10 or 15 pounds, but that’s not a problem.  I’m talking to a nutritionist who’s telling me how to eat and keep running.”  (Having just turned 41, I loathe those young pups who can add and drop weight so easily.)

In case you’re wondering just how big 6-3, 270ish is… Cam Newton has been listed at 6-5, 250.  Former LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell was 6-6, 260.

And here’s a look at the aforementioned Lorenzen in action back in 2000:

After this past year, that video clip was painful. Just a reminder that Rocky Top is hopefully at the bottom and about to stop climbing back up.

John,

I was next to the hefty lefty in McDonalds back when he was at UK. I will claim he was 325 - 335 at least that day! I always thought they shorted his weight by at least 25 lbs when they gave out his stats. Fun to watch, but not sure we will see one that big behind center again.
