This may just be an attempt by LSU homers to find blame much like the great outcry of "if Colt had not gotten hurt" butthurt of 2009. Regardless, according to this article, there was nearly a revolt prior to the BCSCG, after a few LSU upperclassmen confronted Coach Miles about playing time and Jefferson's preparation leading up to the game. I tend to believe this may be exagerrated but who knows?
Just after posting this I saw where T-Bob Hebert Tweeted the following: "There is absolutely no truth to any of these ridiculous rumors going around about this team! Please spread the word don't taint this season"
