LSU's Future?

Tristan Williams is a business administration student, who is currently a senior at Illinois State University. He is a "die-hard LSU fan"

For those of you who don't know, heading into the 2021 season, there was supposed to be a battle between Myles Brennan and Max Johnson. Sadly, Myles Brennan got in a fishing accident prior to the season and was unable to play meaning that Max Johnson won by default. I have never really been the biggest fan of Myles Brennan but honestly didn't do much research prior to this year. But now with Brennan being a 6th-year player, can he earn the start?

Coming out of high school, Myles was actually the 6th ranked quarterback in the nation. I would think with that hype and the experience that maybe he can get it done. He actually was off to a good start in 2020 but then he got hurt.

Myles Brennan has essentially become an LSU meme because we all think he is a sneeze away from a career-ending injury. But with all that being said, I would still like to see Myles as the starter for this season. We already have Garett Nussmeier who is the other potential starter in my eyes.

Jamie Howard, Walker Howard's dad claims that he is fine with redshirting his freshman year in an attempt to get accustomed to the change due to the fact he played early and thought it would have benefitted him to practice more first.

Personally, I really want to see Walker Howard as the starter, but maybe we should save that for 2023 when our line is a lot more developed and will be able to give him the looks he needs to have a season similar to his Junior year before he had the season-ending injury.

on a different note,

As I mentioned in a blog post talking about Will Wade getting fired. It is ironic because now NIL, name, image, and likeness is now legal. The NIL deals are essentially becoming a fairy-tale for LSU because it has made us been able to retain stars like Kashon Boutte and get some stud recruits like five stars, number five, nationally ranked player, Harold Perkins. Gordon McKernan an injury attorney from Baton Rouge has stepped up and been essentially the face of the NIL deals.

Prior to these deals getting done, schools like Texas A&M, Alabama, and even smaller schools like Jacksonville State University were starting to take off in NIL deals. Although these schools saw a lot of success early, I believe Gordan McKernan has come in very efficiently and has been able to close the gap between the other schools.

NIL will change the game at LSU and as Brian Kelly learns more about it, I believe we will be able to dominate and lure these top-notch players in the same way Texas A&M did. With the prior success, Brian Kelly has had at Notre Dame, I think the NIL will open up opportunities that he has never had before and I think as Tiger Fans we have a very exciting future moving forward.
