Possibility of a Two-Quarterback System at LSU?

BATON ROUGE -- - Most coaches have shied away from a two-quarterback system, following the football adage of "if you have two quarterbacks (who play), you really have none."


That, however, has not discouraged new LSU Offensive Coordinator Steve Ensminger from entertaining that thought for the upcoming season.

"I wasn't a fan of it back then," Ensminger said of his playing days at LSU. "But, I've done it as a coordinator at Louisiana Tech."

With four viable candidates currently in the QB race, there's both plenty of talent and plenty of decisions to be made. Ensminger didn't want to commit to a starter or one ideology while on the LSU Caravan tour in New Orleans. 

Myles Brennan, Justin McMillan, and Lowell Narcisse all saw significant time under center this Spring. After the Spring Game, Ed Orgeron and Ensminger brought in transfer gun slinger Joe Burrow from Ohio State University.

Ensminger and Orgeron have both said they will give all four quarterbacks a shot at the starting gig in Fall practices.
