Former LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee feels he could have helped the Tigers in the BCS title game.
Lee did not take one snap against the Crimson Tide despite the offense not producing much of anything for four quarters with Jordan Jefferson under center. It is surprising coach Les Miles did not make a change, even temporarily, at some point in the second half. Lee, who started the first nine games last season, threw for 3,949 yards and 31 touchdowns in his LSU career. Mon, Feb 6, 2012 02:13:00 PM

Quarterback Jarrett Lee is among LSU players that may be ineligible to play in a bowl due to academic issues.

Last week against Arkansas was the first time this season Lee did not see the field. Jordan Jefferson went the distance and, as he has heated up and become the face of the LSU offense again, Lee’s time under center has diminished. Lee had only 12 pass attempts in his last three games, but it would be a shame if his grades keeps him from dressing for a bowl given the contributions he made earlier this season.

LSU coach Les Miles will not name a starter against Western Kentucky and expects to use Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson based on situations.

In other words, Les Miles will continue to use both QBs. Lee and Jefferson provide a different looks with their skill sets and can be used in different situations. Lee struggled against Alabama, throwing a pair of picks and watching Jefferson for a good part of the evening. But Lee has done so much for the No. 1 Tigers that Miles knows the senior is going to be needed big-time down the stretch and heading into a likely SEC title game and BCS bowl.

Jarrett Lee went from being Jordan Jefferson’s backup to being the top-rated passer in the SEC.

Jarrett Lee was going to be a backup for the third straight season, but was moved into the starting role with Jordan Jefferson struggling off the field. Lee not only has held his own – he was a starter as a freshman in 2008 – but has thrived. He has thrown 13 TD passes with only a single pick in 155 attempts. The overall numbers are not gaudy by any means, but he is more than getting the job done for the country’s No. 1 team.

LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee was an efficient 14-for-20 for 165 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Tigers' win over Auburn.

With Jordan Jefferson suspended indefinitely, senior Jarrett Lee will take over as the starting quarterback at LSU.

No stranger to the program, Lee has 9-career starts. An injury led to his being pressed into extended service as a freshman in 2008 (1,873 yards) and he attempted 129 passes as a backup the past two seasons. Coach Les Miles named Zach Mettenberger as Lee's backup. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound JC transfer originally signed with Georgia in 2009.

It may simply be a motivational tactic for LSU's starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson, but coach Les Miles has nothing but praise for backup Jarrett Lee leading into Saturday's televised spring game.

Miles has been disappointed with Jefferson missing receivers during spring drills, and in his words "there's competition there" when it comes to Lee. It's hard to believe that Lee, who threw 16 interceptions in 2008  (seven of which were returned for touchdowns), could beat out Jefferson, but it is clear from Miles' comments that Jefferson's name isn't set in stone on the depth chart either.

"I think Jarrett Lee's had a really good spring, and I think how he runs the team and how he handles the mechanics of quarterback is much better," LSU coach Les Miles said after Tuesday's scrimmage. "Is he closer? I don't know if he's closer. I know this. There's competition there."

Jordan Jefferson remains the starter, but it is becoming increasingly clear that he'll need to perform early to hold on to the job.

Quarterback Jarrett Lee is still enrolled at LSU and plans to push starter Jordan Jefferson this spring.  “He’s real excited to be back,” Jarrett's father Stephen Lee said. “I think in his heart and mind, he understands better now exactly what happened to him (in 2008), and he’s ready to see if another year of maturity and sitting back and learning will help him. He’s very eager.”

Jefferson is loaded with talent, but didn't seem to grab the bull by the horns last fall, leaving a slight opportunity for Lee.  However, we still see Jefferson under center for the Tigers come the fall.

Jarrett Lee will remain the starting quarterback for LSU as they take on Troy this Saturday.

Lee has struggled of late throwing eight interceptions in the last three games. Freshman quarterback Jordan Jefferson is also expected to see some snaps at quarterback this week, making Lee one to avoid.

LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee will start this week's game against Alabama, though the Tigers will continue to prepare freshman Jordan Jefferson for playing time.

Lee has shown flashes this season, throwing 12 touchdowns, but he's also struggled while throwing 10 picks. In short he's a redshirt freshman trying to find consistency while playing a tough SEC schedule. And he's one to sit this week against Alabama.

Jarrett Lee will start at quarterback for LSU this Saturday against Tulane.

Andrew Hatch and freshman Jordan Jefferson could also see time Saturday. Lee is not a good fantasy start.
