LSU fans weigh-in on Jefferson's reinstatement

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Did LSU head football coach Les Miles make the right decision by allowing Jordan Jefferson and Josh Johns back on the team? Social networking sites lit up with comments and people were quick to speak their mind once they learned the latest.

They pack Death Valley during football season to watch their Tigers sport their top techniques on the turf. Before LSU took the field in 2011, the season kicked off with serious allegations against starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson, which cast a cloud of doubt over Tiger Stadium.

It was soon lifted by four wins without Jefferson. His return to the team has some fans fast-forwarding to dreams of another national championship.

"As a football team, I'm excited," said one LSU fan. "He's a great player, a great asset to your team. I think Lee did a great job while he was here, but I'm glad for Jordon to come back and step in."

Still, there are some who are little uneasy about Jefferson's return. The consensus thought: Why mess up a good thing?

"If it's a misdemeanor, he should be able to come back and play, if it's the rules for LSU," said another fan. "But, I think we're doing great with Jarrett Lee and I don't think we need Jefferson."

Jefferson was benched before the season opener in Dallas. Fans started to focus on a new star Jarrett Lee. The roles were reversed. Now, they say Jefferson will have to work hard to win his way into their hearts.

"Jarrett Lee is doing pretty good," said a third fan. "I feel like as a leader, he [Jefferson] shouldn't have done what he did, but he's able to come back. He's got a lot to prove to everybody."

Jefferson is expected to start polishing up on his passing game first thing Thursday morning.
