Report: LSU 3 To Be Reinstated Today

Yesterday, LSU chancellor Michael Martin said three suspended Tiger footballers would have to “get their act together” before being reinstated to Les Miles team.

He said that the ultimate decision would be made by AD Joe Alleva and himself.  Here’s the quote we showed you yesterday:

“Fortunately for them and the team, they have two weeks to get their act together because we have a bye week.  They have been directed to some counseling, and they will now be subject to greater scrutiny for the remainder of their time at LSU.”

Well apparently Spencer Ware, Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon have already made it to their counseling sessions because CBSSports is reporting that all three are expected to be reinstated to the squad today.

This after Martin’s comments led many to believe that “if the game was this Saturday, the players may not be able to compete the process for reinstatement in time.”  It sure sounded like that, anyway.

Because the SEC has not led the way in intercollegiate athletics by implementing a league-wide, uniform drug policy, much of the buzz surrounding next week’s game o’ the century will involve whether or not those three players have been given a lighter sentence than they would usually receive simply because a big game is on the horizon.

Like it or not — fair or not — that’s certainly the way things appear.
