07:39 AM ET 02.20 | Among the quarterback competitions bound to take over a few headlines in the SEC in 2014, we find the name of Brandon Harris at LSU. Sophomore Anthony Jennings already leapfrogged some older guys on LSU's depth chart, passing Penn State transfer Rob Bolden and redshirt sophomore Stephen Rivers to become Zach Mettenberger's 2013 backup and the starter in the Outback Bowl when Mettenberger was hurt. As LSU looks for Mettenberger's replacement, Harris will be a threat to do the same to Jennings. The true freshman, rated the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the country in the 2014 class by ESPN, enrolled for the spring and comes in with a lot of momentum on the recruiting trail. He was one of the fastest risers in the ESPN 300 late in the recruiting process and drew raves for his throwing ability.

"Controversy" & "LSU" in the same sentence. Who'd a thunk it?

There's no controversy. These guys will sort themselves out in the off-season down at Shady's.

<Just for you, .5. Come out and play! ;)>

Yeah RP pizzed away his career and they did have a bad run at QB. Looks like that may be over. The wheels don't look flat anymore.

And I do like the SI avi. Hope it stays.
