Real Reason LSU Suspended Quarterback Peter Parrish Revealed
The real reason LSU suspended quarterback Peter Parrish was revealed this past week.
Late Tuesday night, news came down that Parrish had been suspended from the program indefinitely. Almost immediately, people began to speculate as to what the cause of the punishment was.
Parrish redshirted as a freshman last year and then ended up missing the last couple days of Spring Practice due to reasons that nobody was quite clear on.
Today, team head coach Ed Orgeron revealed that the reason why Parrish was absent from practice was due to suspension.
Although a specific reason for the suspension was not offered, apparently it was due to an unspecified violation of team rules.

“I don’t know when he’s going to be back,” Orgeron said.
Parrish was the No. 11 ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2019 class coming out of school. It remains unclear what his role on LSU will be going forward.
As things currently stand, Myles Brennan, who served as Joe Burrow’s quarterback in 2019, is the likely starter heading into next season.
