LSU coach Ed Orgeron joined 104.5 ESPN's "Off The Bench" Tuesday morning and talked about TJ Finley's decision to transfer out of the program. Here's what he had to say:
quote:

"TJ did everything right," Orgeron explained. "He said, 'Coach, I need to have a meeting with you.' It was very heartfelt. It was a very hard decision for him. He felt that it was the best decision for him and his career."

"Obviously, I asked and tried to have him stay. I think the world of TJ. I think he's a great young man and a great quarterback. He felt it was something he needed to do, but he did everything right, he did it first class and we wish him the very best wherever he goes, and wherever he goes someone is going to get a great young man and a great quarterback."
Finley's departure leaves LSU with three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster; Myles Brennan, Max Johnson, and Garrett Nussmeier.

Just a bunch of fluff. What he truly wanted to say was “thank you for opening up a scholarship for someone who will eventually play”.

Are you under the impression that LSU will be at the full 85 scholarships this season? We were down 30 scholarships players last season. A full 25 person class does not bring us back to 85.

Kids just not a mobile QB until he works on his pocket awareness and mobility he better stay out the SEC west for sure. After Auburn found his weakness it was over from then on they all pressured him and he couldn't make the quick decision or use his legs to make time. Wish him the best

Hard to see good kids leave. They want to play and I don’t blame them.

Are you referring to the 1st Round Draft Pick Bitch? Whatever happen with Fields has nothing to do with TJ! Unless it does! More will be revealed!

At least he reached out to O and talked to him like a man rather than just going on Twitter.

He's a talented QB, and seems like a very nice kid. It's unfortunate it didn't work out at LSU in the end. God bless him. Hope he kicks arse wherever he goes.

There probably is another school that he might move into the starting position faster. Good luck TJ!
