    My vote goes to Josh Jasper. He put points on the board when the offense struggled this year. 5 field goals aginst moo state was the diffrence in that game.The bounce fake aginst Florida showed he was more than just a kicker. He was a game winner and leader on offense. Josh Jasper kept us in every game and he gets my vote. I know many will disagree but noone can dispute his value to this team. :geaux:

    Any vote not for Patrick Peterson is frankly, insane.

    Jasper was extremely valuable. He was our only offense at times. However, had it not been for Peterson, we might not have made it into field goal range very often.

    Stick it in your ear, chief.

    I vote for Nevis. Most valuable player is not the same as best athlete. Peterson's backup covered for him just fine. But when Nevis was out of the game we suffered.

    True. But Peterson lifted our O, D and special teams simultaneously. Good point though about value being relative.

    FWIW, I don't think Peterson's backups did that great against UNC.

    Ridley deserves a mention.

    I would vote Josh Jasper also. Nothing against Peterson, Nevis, or Ridley, or even Sheppard, you could make a case for all of them, but Josh Jasper went above and beyond his position. I mean if he could play quarterback he probably would have.

    What I'm saying with Josh is when all else was struggling he was the one thing you could count on. He missed a few but no kicker is perfect. When we couldn't get touchdowns he made points. When we needed help on defense he punted the ball damn near on the goal line giving the defense a chance to make a play. He came through when his number was called and the game was on the line.

    I think Patrick Peterson is the MVP in all of college football of 2010, not just LSU.

    The offensive weapon he was on special teams as well as allowing us to blitz like crazy gave us the only chance at having a successful season, looking back on how things panned out.

    We're 5-7 or 6-6 without him.
