Zack Mettenberger, who spent 2011 in the shadows of the Jordan Jefferson-Jarrett Lee soap opera is now ready to move to the top of the depth chart. How well the 6-foot-5, 225 pound junior adapts to his new role could determine whether LSU returns to the BCS Championship Game this season. LSU returns a ton of experence to support the first year starter.
Back in the spring of 2010, Mettenberger was battling Aaron Murray for the starting job at Georgia when he was dismissed from the team after being arrested on multiple charges stemming from an incident at a bar. Mettenberger later pleaded guilty to sexual battery and paid $2000 in fines and worked 40 hours of community service. That led him to Butler Community College (Kansas), where he starred for one season before enrolling at LSU last January.
Mettenberger has a strong arm and great potential.....guess we see if he can lead LSU to the promise land.
