how has he come along so far? I remember we led for some random stretch of time and never could figure out if I thought he'd be really good or what. Thanks.
If he plays i will LUL!! He was not even the best QB on his HS team..he got an offer by his name alone...dude threw some TDs while people were wide open, but when he played anyone will a pulse he was terrible. He was actually pulled a few times, and if you think Mettenburger is a sitting duck in the pocket, Rivers is way slower.
I think making people LOL is Les' number one requirement for a starting QB IIRC.
Career backup ... He may get some garbage duty this year but the way spring has been going I wouldnt be surprised if he got passed up by the freshman for some playing time this season.
Rivers has been in LSU's system for awhile but that has changed all over again with Cam Cameron coming in and the coaches seem to be pretty excited about the guys coming in over Rivers as far as snaps and preduction this spring.
The point is nobody really knows how Rivers is going to react to big game situations because he has not had any experience in them. He is an unknown for much of the fanbase outside of practice reports and things of that nature. The good thing is that Cameron coached his brother Phillip at San Diego and knows how to deal with the Rivers boys as far as knowing their arm strength and the way they throw. Stephen lucked out that LSU hired Cameron IMO.
But only time will tell on whether or not he will be given the opportunity to perform.

He'll never play

Thanks. Can't say I am surprised.
He's no Philip Ely
GET AT ME
seen both and would have to agree. Ely > Rivers
Parker McLeod>Rivers IMO
Lets not go crazy now.
Anthony Jennings will definitely see the field more than Rivers.. Jennings will be THE guy for us after Mett.
Ely and Rivers both are career backups but I cannot wait to see Jennings when he eventually becomes our starter
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
