Scrimmage talk

Since we won't get to see LSU until the spring game, we have to take Les Miles and the sports information office at their word.

That being said, there's been enough good things said about defensive back Ron Brooks this spring that he figures to be a player to watch.

Brooks intercepted a pair of passes today and returned one for a touchdown. He also had three tackles.

(No funny jokes about the quarterbacks, please).

A lot of times you have spring practice heroes that you never hear from again. But Brooks may be one of those players who gradually emerges in his college career.

Anyway, there were no big shocks from the scrimmage Saturday.

Les Miles says Jordan Jefferson is "in the lead at quarterback.'' No kidding.

Russell Shepard looked great running the football. Again, no real surprise there.

Drake Nevis and Chad Jones played well on defense. Again, no real surprise.

Anyway, all this does is whet the appetite of the die-hard football fans.

I guess Miles won't say which QB(s) threw the 2 pick 6s in the scrimmage and who threw the 2nd INT to Brooks.

The spring game will be interesting.

Will Shepard be able to run the ball in the SEC w/o getting injured? Maybe we'll see him in the Wild Tiger this year. Imagine him and Holliday [or Murphy] in the same backfield!!
