This weekend, Zach Mettenberger is visiting quarterback-challenged LSU as he looks to rejoin the D-1 ranks. He’s been offered scholarships by at least eight schools, including heavyweights like Arkansas and Alabama. But the Tigers are thought to lead for his signature. Their secret for success might surprise you:
“If I had to guess, at the top of his list would be LSU,” Mettenberger’s father, Bernie Mettenberger, said Thursday. “That’s from my conversations with Zach. He’s never been down there to LSU, but his favorite show is ‘Swamp People.’ And he’s got a real close relationship with Les Miles.”
“Swamp People” is a documentary series on the History Channel that chronicles the lives of a Cajun family on the Atchafalaya River basin.
