|Jordan Jefferson, the scapegoat|
I do not have a problem with Les Miles allowing Jordan Jefferson back on the football team. I do have a problem when Miles allowed Jefferson back on the football field on Saturday.
I believe Jefferson has been the scapegoat for a lot of players' mistakes that long August 19 night at Shady's.
I also believe he had to be charged with something to keep the Baton Rouge Police Department from looking totally ridiculous, not to mention the legal ramifications if he would have walked away clean.
There had to be a lot of wheeling and dealing and politicking before the felony second-degree battery charge was reduced to misdemeanor simple battery.
