Former Georgia Bulldogs QB Zach Mettenberger, dismissed from the team after fondling a fellow patron at a Valdosta bar, has committed to play football for the LSU Tigers next year. He should have a chance to start, as the current Tigers QB committee composed of Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee was good for 10 interceptions and only six touchdowns this season.â†µ
The six-foot-five righty played this season for Kansas' Butler Community College, which he guided to the JUCO national championship game. While not quite a JUCO transfer on the order of Cam Newton, Mettenberger should be able to boost LSU by strengthening one of their most glaring shortcomings.â†µ
LSU will not play Georgia next year.â†µ
Mettenberger's exit left the Dawgs short-handed at quarterback, but Aaron Murray stood tall in his first year at starter. Georgia required backup QB Hutson Mason's services in only one non-garbage time moment, when Murray was knocked out of the Auburn game late.
