The 2013 season has been an unconventional year for the LSU Tigers and the midseason awards reflect it.
With LSU's most valuable player hailing at the quarterback position and a defensive MVP hard to come by, Tiger fans have encountered foreign territory.
Posting 2,164 yards through eight games, Zach Mettenberger has given LSU's offense a pro-style quarterback that can sling it. However, the Tigers' inheritance of a 6'5" talented quarterback has been equally met by a struggling inexperienced defense. The defensive struggles have led to two losses, crushing the Tigers' national championship aspirations. So where do we stand through eight weeks?
Well, Mettenberger is "the guy," John Chavis' defense is questioned, Cam Cameron's revitalization of LSU's offense is praised, and one Tiger accomplished something that hasn't been done in college football since 1968.
