Five Reasons Why Jefferson Could Derail LSU

Jordan Jefferson was named the starting quarterback for LSU in fall practice 2011 as he began  his senior year  

After coach Miles and his new staff told the fans how much improved and under control Jefferson would be,  everybody was looking to the season with much excitement. 

But all was changed when Jefferson chose to sneak out after curfew and break team rules by going to a bar and then ending up in a bar fight and causing severe injury to another person.

As a result, Jefferson was subsequently arrested and charged in the fight so coach Miles suspended him and named Jarrett Lee in as the starter for the 2011 season.    

Lee has responded much more efficiently than anyone ever thought he would, and his terrific leadership and managing skills have brought this LSU football team a 5-0 record and a Number 1 ranking in the AP polls.

As a result of the great job he has done, experts on the national scene such as ESPN, and many experts have been saying that Lee may be one of the best quarterbacks in the SEC. 

With the great job that Jarrett Lee has been doing, one would ask what more could one expect as the Tigers have been soring along with team unity and a winning chemistry under Lee's guidance.

But, now that Jefferson has been reinstated to the team, things on the LSU team are threatening to become a bit unsettled. 

The main reason for the unsettling on the team is that Jefferson's  return has not been a quiet,peaceful, and supportive return.  As an example,  Jefferson made it public in an media interview that he wants his job old back and he says he will do whatever it takes. 

In light of Jefferson's return with the attitude and personal statements he has made, I have outlined the following five reasons I believe Jefferson's return could derail this successful and potentially great football season.
