About Last Night

There's only one thing I have to say about that game last night.

Jarrett Lee should have gotten to play.

Even if it would have had no effect on the outcome of the game, Jarrett Lee should have gotten to play. 

Even if Alabama had a 50-0 lead, Jarrett Lee should have gotten to play. 
Even if LSU had a 50-0 lead, Jarrett Lee should have gotten to play. 
Even if the score was tied with 30 seconds left, Jarrett Lee should have gotten to play. 

Even if Jordan Jefferson hadn't spiraled out of control like those of us who have suffered through 4 years of his playing knew he would, Jarrett Lee should have gotten to play. 

Why? 


Because it was Jarrett Lee who lead this team to an 8-0 start.  Because it was Jarrett Lee who led the team to led the team to victory, playing three of its first four games on the road and against such opponents as Oregon and West Virginia.  Because it was Jarrett Lee who developed the poise and confidence to keep the team rolling.  Because it was Jarrett Lee who took control, took leadership, managed the team, and kept them winning all that time Jordan Jefferson was sitting in jail. 

Because without Jarrett Lee, LSU would not have even made it to the title game.

If for no other reason than that,

Jarrett Lee should have gotten to play.
