The mystery is over in Baton Rouge.
Etling competed with freshman signal caller Myles Brennan this offseason for the starting QB job. In the end, it’s the former Purdue transfer who gets the nod to be under center to start the season.
The move doesn’t come as much of a surprise. With Etling taking the reins last year, Brennan had a lot of ground to make up to get the nod. Putting a veteran under center is the proper move, and it’s the proper move here as well for the Fighting Tigers.
