The long and short of it was that Russell admitted he had been trying to "wing it" too much, and had been trying to do more and "be the man" instead of just letting things come to him. Saban was relieved to hear about it, and to see the meeting and admission followed up by an improvement by Russell in the off the field processes that lead to execution on the field. IE-Practice and meetings. He was rewarded with the start, as much of a confidence boost as anything else. The team believes Randall can lead them to the best short term success for right now, but if JaMarcus continues his dedication, he could be moving into a much greater role very soon in the LSU offense. The worm is turning, and it's a good sign for LSU's quarterback situation in teh future.
