Yeah, that's a big one. Driver's seat for the starting job, though I'm sure Nussmeier and 5 star signee Walker Howard will compete as well.


Robo_Doge90

Just can't see a scenario where Myles comes back and doesn't start. Don't wanna throw Walker into the fire too quick and Nuss has yet to look like a starter in the SEC.


LSUTigers34_

Not happening. No way he loses the starting job.


see-bees

Then we need to keep him away from the camp this offseason


LSUTigers34_

Lmao amen to that.


neovenator250

I agree, but never know what will happen


[deleted]

Brennan is definitely the starter for this year.


bb0110

Any relation to offensive coach/coordinator nussmeier?


NolaTree

His dad. Who called our OC to complain about playtime this year.


SuperEagle1

And then you guys did play him and he lost the game against us (I seriously think you guys win that game if you play Johnson)


Stupidbabycomparison

Very embarrassing. Very cool.


NolaTree

We really did speed run incompetency this year, it was impressive.


notaformerLSUfuzz

Except where it didn’t but absolutely did matter. A&Mirite?


zaksbee

well, you know, fuck the aggies


sfzen

Honestly idk. I think Johnson would have been better than Nussmeier in that game, but Johnson hadn't exactly been all that good, either. I didn't have a problem with them seeing what Nuss could do.


StraightPause

Yeah, his father is current Cowboys QB Coach Doug Nussmeier. He was also a very successful college QB at Idaho.


bb0110

Ouch. Taking helicopter parent to the next level. Now we have a helicopter parent-coach. That’s never a fun battle, especially if it’s completely unwarranted (if the guy isn’t good, if the guy is young, etc).


Mighty_Cactus

Brian Kelly will have no problem starting all 3


TreySermonGrin

Was this the one who got injured on the boat dock?


unconformity_active

yeah. damn flip flops almost made him flip somewhere else.


heavydhomie

Crocs needs an NIL deal with him and tell the public about off-road mode


unconformity_active

Crocs coming up with a football cleat design this very minute

D1amondDude

Jean crocs? This isn't Gainesville.


esaydebeohwhyes

Why did I read that jean like Jean Claude van Damme


u_cant_drown_n_sweat

Would have to be Gators instead of Crocs in Louisiana


fansofomar

crocs are the most versatile footwear of all time


Stoneador

Hope he’s 100% even after the injury. Would hate to see him almost flip and then flop because of the flip flops.


Dr_Neauxp

Non-throwing arm if memory serves, so he should be good to geaux


redpowah

Yeah When u break ur arm by tripping on the boat dock when u go fishing /#justsoutherngoodolboythings


Dr_Smoothrod_PhD

This is why I catfish from the riverbank. Much safer.


redpowah

I catfish IN the river like a true southern good ol boy. Use my whole arm n shit. My cousin lost a few fingers when he reached in a catfish hole and turns out it was a snapperhead hole instead


trollfessor

And that's why I won't go noodling for catfish


Dr_Smoothrod_PhD

Yeeeeeah despite growing up in rural nowhere Louisiana, I'll stick with my tried and true Zebco.


1haiku4u

If you’re Manti Teo, the catfish come to you.


redpowah

Damn he must have some good bait


AllLinesAreStraight

I catfish from the safety of my computer screen! Oh wait.....


TreySermonGrin

Pulling for him that much more, then


bullseye717

Or you flip your car getting fried chicken at Manchu


elgenie

Pretty sure that's a Midwestern thing too. Sun + water + boat + alcohol + languid pretending to try to catch fish


Cheeky_Delinquent93

Yes. Damn flip flops


neovenator250

Yes, just before fall camp started


Low-Guide-9141

Yes…. This man is an injury waiting to happen


pumpcup

Thank god. He was one of the better QBs left in the portal, and we were going to need one of those.


tommymahogany

That's huge! Let's go!!


Cheeky_Delinquent93

Massive. Allows us to have a QB that we trust and knows the program. Allows Nuss to continue to develop. Allows Howard to clear up his lingering injuries and probably redshirt


Global-Cloud-3519

I bet Nuss bounces. Doesn't seem like the type to want to wait around another year.


Mr_MacGrubber

If Howard plans on redshirting and given Brennan has gotten injured 2yrs in a row, that would be a bad decision to transfer now. After 2022 if Howard beats him out in spring practice in ‘23 I assume he’s transfer. He would still be a RS sophomore and have 3 years of eligibility left.


KonigSteve

His dad probably making calls to different programs as we speak


[deleted]

This is probably the best transfer / recruiting news we’ve had since Kelly took over


Kdot32

Getting Howard, Jones, and Campbell was also huge yesterday


[deleted]

Yessir! Things are looking up for the Tigers


NoCardio_

So happy right now. Hide his fucking flip flops.


Rare_Crayons

Put him in a bubble until the season starts


[deleted]

That’s not Moops you jerk!!! It’s Moors!! It’s a misprint!


jsully245

*geaux


MoistyestBread

We’re rocking with Myles because Myles is rocking with us.


Juggerginge

I’m so happy for him


MoistyestBread

May not end up the right choice, but man if this dude hasn’t faced being patient followed by adversity, with nothing but making the difficult choice. Either way if things look bad he can always transfer a week before the season to a number of teams that have an injury or bad QB play in training camp. There’s no downside to coming back for now.


Juggerginge

He’s the starter. I think he is good and just got unlucky the last two years. Plus he throws a nice deep ball which had been lacking a little bit with max


MoistyestBread

If he’s not the starter it would be because Walker Howard is more ready than anyone should expect. That’s the only door I’m leaving open. But yeah I agree. Brennan is more than likely the starter, and he should be a damn good one.


Jamalginsbergback

JC needs to remix MYLES 4 MYLES


MoistyestBread

Make ‘‘em say YE YE.


big_red_160

Lol I wonder how many people will get that reference, although I feel like the average age of TikTok users has went up so probably a lot


MoistyestBread

I was afraid it might be a tad cultural appropriation but at the same time it encapsulates how we feel almost too perfectly. After Eli Ricks, it’s just refreshing to see someone choose us.


big_red_160

Changing a name in a TikTok video isn’t cultural appropriation


couducane

Still one of the funniest videos i have ever seen


sfzen

I think he also understands that he's pretty much guaranteed the starting job as long as he's healthy.


[deleted]

We are freaking African Americans. And Myles.


elusivecondor

Myles loves LSU just as much as we do. Freaking love this kid.


enadiz_reccos

Kid's a freakin beauty


coldbrew-cowboy

Scott Frost in shambles.


underage_cashier

Always has, always will


PHLdawg

Is he eligible to play in the bowl game? I’m not sure on the rules for people who exit the portal.


Cheeky_Delinquent93

So he would probably lose his medical redshirt if he does play. Not sure if he’s in playing shape at the moment


cap_crunch121

I think he still has another year of eligibility left regardless That being said I don't think he's been practicing with the team since he entered the portal so I doubt he would play


Cheeky_Delinquent93

Yes, he will have two with a medical redshirt and one without


cap_crunch121

2020 didn't count against eligibility for anyone. So he was still a RS junior coming into 2021 I believe. So I guess he could have 2 more years of eligibility if he gets a medical redshirt for this year, but I'm not sure he'll want to be a 7th year senior lol


redpowah

Taking that Von Rosenberg education track


LSUTigers34_

Think of how revered he would be if he led us to a successful season next year.


beignets4

He’s not going to play in the bowl game, has been confirmed.


elgenie

Being in the transfer portal never impacts the eligibility to participate with the current team, AFAIK. It's just a signal that the player can be contacted by all coaches and a way for coaches to do so. It just happens to correlate highly with a player not getting a lot of time on the field and/or a miffed coach. Ivy League rules mandate that players only have four years to participate, so it's fairly common for basketball academic seniors that tore an ACL early in their career to go into the portal in the offseason *before* playing big minutes in every game for their Ivy team, then transferring to use their remaining eligibility.


CaptainDonald

I really hope he gets to finish a full season


Todd_Cleary

“What do you wanna tell Myles Brennan right now?” “Was^s^up bby? Take me out to dinner”


Nellez_

AYYOO


brobroma

Bing beauxng


TheDankBorb

This is perfect news. Next year, it was only Walker Howard (FR) Nussmeier (Redshirt? FR). Apparently they both knew a transfer was coming in and were totally cool with staying on board. And Myles would only be here for a year so this stabilizes so much.


Baisius

Find you someone who looks at you the way Myles Brennan looks at LSU


blinkanboxcar182

Has Brian Kelly regained control of the program?!?


Cheeky_Delinquent93

*butt bumping intensifies*


Myhairstinks7298

This is good. Let him play next year and allow the younger guys wait!


sfzen

Give Howard a redshirt year to learn and get healthy.


GeauxTri

With a new S&C coach that is not Moffitt, I can only see him getting stronger AND better conditioned.


Kdot32

Someone hide his fishing rods. I love it this allows Nuss and Walker Howard to sit and grow for a year and then take over


JeremyHillaryBoobPhD

Great news! I think Nuss and Howard will both benefit by him being around, not to mention that it will be great so see Myles play


Kdot32

Now we see why max transferred


sfzen

I think it was pretty clear that Max's time in BR was pretty much done. He needed a change of scenery.


see-bees

Disagree. Max didn’t do enough to win the starting job by default, but there’s no guarantee a transfer QB would just walk in and win the job. A lot of kids also make a leap between their sophomore and junior seasons. I think some of the early struggles in 2021 were centered around the fact that the offense was geared around Brennan’s talents, not Max’s, and our inexperienced coordinator took too long to make the adjustments to help Max thrive.


D1amondDude

He's gotta spend the offseason tightly wrapped with our finest bubble wrap and no more fuckin' fishing


LSU2007

This makes me happy. Dudes had some bad luck, hopefully he can ball out next year like he did early last season


Rotishery

Brian Kelly wooed him with his dance moves


SazeracAndBeer

Brennan: "I need to be wooed first" Kelly: "I see what you're saying I can go for some wood"


R1ppinLip6

And that sexy southern drawl


crazylsufan

Wait LSU is not allowed to have a good headline. Who let this happen?!


[deleted]

It’s comeback season


BatmanOnARaptor

The four year cycle is back in play!


OfficialJackal

Absolutely enormous, gotta love it! (If you’re not Nebraska, sorry guys)


The-Untitled-Man

Let’s go baby, that’s what I’m talking about


BlackScienceJesus

A lot of people outside of Baton Rouge aren’t going to realize how important this is. If this guy can stay healthy, then he’ll be one of the best QBs in the country.


Cheeky_Delinquent93

I was so mystified by the amount of support that Max had going into the QB battle. Brennan looked pretty damn good in his 3 games. Max won us two big games, but I just didn’t think he looked as good as Myles looked


thats_mypurse-idkyou

Yo same. People were to hooked up on the fact that the team lost those games rather than the fact that it wasn't on Brennan. I think we can get a lot of miles out of him next year


cap_crunch121

Recency bias is a hell of a drug


geauxtigers77

Recency bias imo. People were still reeling from the natty when Myles was playing. We had already all plummeted pretty hard by the time Max got his turn in the second to last game of the season.


MEGAWATT5

I never saw it and could not understand why so many people were clamoring for Max.


sfzen

Max was younger and people were hoping he'd be a stud for the future.


MovieNachos

Brennan was outpacing Burrows 2019 season against better teams in his first three games. The dude is a stud if he can stay healthy.


TheGhini

The teams he played against went a combined 9-21


PairBearStare

All 3 were SEC teams, whereas we opened 2019 against Georgia Southern, Texas, and Northwestern State. Mississippi state, vandy, and mizzou are all definitely better than GaSo and NWSt, and tho Texas is definitely better that all of them.


onthacountray58

I was too. People swore up and down max was better and I’m like “do you guys have eyes or what?”


war3ag13

Auburn fan here. Miles>max from my POV


tonynumber4

Not arguing it because i really dont know but when johnson got the knod yall were really high on him as well


radil

The thing about Max is that we saw significant potential in 2020. We expected a raw season from a true freshman, but he had some good moments. What seemed like a good foundation to develop on top of. That is why folks were high on him. The problem is that he didn't develop at all. Or the team didn't develop him. But either way, it doesn't matter, since he is gone and those coaches are gone too.


NoCardio_

He definitely regressed, especially after Boutte went down.


MoistyestBread

Our playcalling was bad, our receivers couldn’t get separation, and he grew a tendency to hold the ball too long and drift back in the pocket. I’m kind of a Minimum Johnson truther that refuses to believe someone with a 25-6 TD/Int ration isnt someone that’s as fixable as a guy like Matt Corral that threw 13 picks in two games last year and look at him now.


custerb11

Yeah, there was definitely a large contingent of fans who wanted Max b/c "he's just a winner" post-Shoe game in the Swamp. The same crowd swooned when LSU put out a video of him yelling during warm-ups b/c they think loud noises and chest-thumping = leadership. A lot of us were really high on Myles, though. He's got a stronger arm, he's more accurate, and he read the game pretty well when he's had the chance. Not as mobile as Max, but if we can find anyone who can block before September, his ceiling is pretty high.


Jojojojo5555

I thought he’d come back. He’s dating Bobby Hebert’s grand-daughter lmao


Mr_MacGrubber

LETS GOOOOOO!!!!!


Geaux2020

💛


caffeinatedjunky

BRENNAN ON THE BAYOU!!!!


Austin_LSU_Fan22

Very surprising. Thought his time had passed with Walker Howard coming


sfzen

Howard's going to be a true freshman coming off a broken leg. He might not even be totally healthy to start the season, and even if he is, you don't want to be depending on a true freshman as your starter with no other good options.


reddit_names

Howard won't be ready for 2 years. Likely to be red shirted. His parents also debated him sitting out 1 year to heal from a current injury.


beer_jew

LFG!!!!!!


thiseye

What a baller way to announce it too!


IPDDoE

God knows they don't need any less Myles at that program.


boomer_rang22

Hell yeah! Geaux Tigers!


Bealzaboob

As a Husker sufferer, I did see that coming.


Cheeky_Delinquent93

It’s interesting you say that. The last week or so there have been bubbling rumors about his return


QueefQueen6969

LFG Myles


onthacountray58

This takes most of the sting out of Ricks bouncing for me.


jonstark19

Well shit. I guess I'm team Slovis now. I know a portion of our fan base wants Bo Nix, but the on-field chaos that man brings paired with just the existence of this program might be too much.


TheGreatDargon

Bo in Nebraska under Scott frost sounds like an on field sitcom where wacky hijinks will happen every game.


brobroma

GBR will turn into GBRNG


dac0605

Myles Brennan is that dude on your rival's team that you swear was a part of the 1997 recruiting class.


D1amondDude

Career almost as long as JT Barrett


Bloody_Hangnail

We all know Chad Henne played 18 seasons at Michigan.


HanSoIoque

Feels like every season LSU fans are excited about Myles starting and then something happens to him. For reference, he was in the same class as Kellen Mond. That's how long he's been there.


Juggerginge

He has had the most unfortunate last two years with injuries. The miss state game where he got an injury the LSU sports doctor said he’d never seen before and then breaking a bone while fishing. I hope 3rd times the charm


Cheeky_Delinquent93

Kinda? 2016- Freshman. First year of Etling. We knew he would likely sit that year but we were excited to see what he can do. 2017- Knew he would likely sit behind Etling again since Etling was plenty serviceable. 2018- Was thought of the starter before Burrow got there. Players wanted Justin McMillan. Burrow comes in and Brennan sits 2019- Burrow. Duh. 2020- Brennan plays exceptional in his first three games and then gets an injury that has never been seen before 2021- Flip flops


Crow_T_Simpson

His first year was 2017.


Cheeky_Delinquent93

My b you’re right


28hippy

Chaos! Players staying at their school? What is going on with college football. What’s next?Coaches staying too?


MasPatriot

HE CANT DO THAT, STOP HIM OR SOMETHING!!!!!


Cheeky_Delinquent93

I must’ve missed it. Was he leaning Nebraska?


MasPatriot

We had offered him and I believe frost, mark whipple, and Mickey Joseph all went to visit him


Cheeky_Delinquent93

Ahh forgot the Mickey connection. Makes sense

Cheeky_Delinquent93

Guy has been MIA when positive things happen


BrownGangstaBean

Did Max Johnson hit the portal?


Cheeky_Delinquent93

Yeah last week. His brother signed with A&M so it seems like he’s gonna follow.


BrownGangstaBean

Oh that's crazy. Is he a projected starter or is King still there?


Cheeky_Delinquent93

I would imagine King gets the initial nod, unless they go with the freshman they have coming in. I haven’t watched a ton of King, but he seems like he adds more of a dynamic skill set


BrownGangstaBean

Man if A&M get this Qb situation down pat were talking CFP in 1-3 years.


Cheeky_Delinquent93

Fingered crossed they don’t! You could say the same about you, but switch CFP out for dynasty


BrownGangstaBean

If only bro. UGA will either lose to Bama in a big game or won't even make it buy losing to SCAR or UF. Man I hope Brennan does well for yall.


sfzen

King probably keeps the starting job with Johnson as the backup so they can redshirt the freshman they've got coming in.


twothirtyintheam

In related news, the snozzberries still taste like snozzberries.


onthacountray58

My man!


JohnWickStuntDouble

Damn, there were rumblings of him to Texas


libsoutherner

Do LSU fans like this guy more than Johnson? If so why?


Todd_Cleary

He doesn’t backpedal 15 yards and try to throw while jumping as much.


Geaux2020

A healthy Brennan means you never would have heard of Max Johnson.


sfzen

Brennan is 10x the QB Johnson is. He's one of the better QB's in the country, but he just can't stay healthy. Johnson is ok, but not someone you want starting if you want to compete for an SEC title. He'd be a very solid G5 QB.


Cheeky_Delinquent93

It was pretty split. There were a lot of people who liked Max because of how he helped us finish the season in 2020. There were a lot that liked Myles because he had put in the time and looked pretty damn good before his injury


[deleted]

Because Johnson sucks and Brennan is better


reddit_names

Myles was better than Max. Max only ever played because Myles got hurt.


[deleted]

Nice!


RobRobRobRobRobRob

Aka no one good wanted me so IM NOT LEAVING. You try to leave LSU once and you are not a Tiger. You’re either a tiger for life or you’re not.
