Those who watched the championship game realized that the quarterback position wasn't the only reason why LSU lost to Alabama. Then again, those who watched realized that the position certainly didn't help matters much.
LSU is going to have a great defense and will have a huge stable of running backs coming back. Who will be handing the ball off, though? If they don't find a quarterback to keep defenses honest, then the offense could struggle next season.
If the Tigers go with Zach Mettenberger (pictured), then they'll be going with a quarterback who has attempted 11 career passes. If they go with anyone else, then they'll be going with a quarterback who has attempted zero career passes.
I'm not the type who puts everything on the quarterback's shoulders. I realize that the Tigers are extremely strong at every other position. Still, this will be a very inexperienced position for the Tigers in 2012. That's not good news for a team that figures to be the No. 1 team in the nation entering the season.
