Mettenberger to LSU

Former Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger is returning to the SEC - but an awkward reunion would have to wait until 2013, or the SEC championship game.

Mettenberger told recruiting sites on Monday that he has committed to LSU. The Watkinsville native has spent the fall semester at Butler Community College in Kansas, where he led his team to the junior college national title game.

Mettenberger plans to enroll at LSU for the spring semester, and will have three years of eligibility remaining. That's because he redshirted his freshman season at Georgia, before being dismissed following spring practice.

Georgia turned out OK, of course, with Aaron Murray, who won the job out of spring practice anyway. Mettenberger was spotted around Athens a few times this year, including the sideline at Sanford Stadium during the Georgia Tech game.

But if he ever faces his former team, it will almost certainly not be in Athens: Georgia is scheduled to play in Baton Route in 2013, and LSU returns the trip in 2014, by which time Mettenberger will presumably be gone. (Barring a medical redshirt.) The teams could also square off in the SEC championship game.

Let's see. It's December, so it's about time for M's dad to contact a former Gamecock player/ad hoc agent to contact the Gamecock staff about how a henhouse full of poultry, in small chicks, will get M. there instead of LSU. Ahhhhhh, SEC football! Gotta love it.

I'm beyond sick of the same programs (the entire SEC West and Oklahoma) picking up players who were kicked off other teams or kicked out of other schools and not being criticized for it by the media. And this is after the original school gets blasted for having someone of "weak moral character" on their team.

Wake the hell up media members.
