Mettenberger Talks 2011 BCS


Perhaps what hurt most to LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger about losing to Alabama in the BCS Championship was the fact that Mettenberger could've helped, if given a chance.

"It's something that no one wants to experience," Mettenberger, who served as a camp counselor, at the Manning Passing Academy said.

Mettenberger said he was ready to play if called upon, but his number was never called. With the whole world watching, the Tiger offense was inept in their 21-0 loss at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. With Jordan Jefferson at the helm the offense only crossed midfield once.

He said that experience was tough to go through, but doesn't second-guess the coach's decision to not play him.

"As a competitor you always want to play," Mettenberger said. "The two guys we had were playing good football. Shoot, we were 13-0 at the time. It hard to say woulda, coulda, shoulda if I played but at the time it was best for the team."
