LSU’s Miles Announces Dismissal Of Mathieu

Major news from Baton Rouge today as defensive back/return specialist/Heisman-hopeful Tyrann Mathieu has been dismissed from the LSU football team.  Coach Les Miles would not specify what rule his star had broken, but Mathieu was suspended last season after a drug test revealed the presence of synthetic marijuana in his system.

Miles said that he expects Mathieu to transfer to another school.  He still has two years of eligibility remaining, but if he wants to play immediately, he’ll need to transfer down to the FCS level.

Mathieu’s dismissal compounds the loss of fellow corner Morris Claiborne who left early for the NFL in the spring.  Will the loss of the Honey Badger be enough to drop LSU from the role of SEC and BCS favorite?  Quite possibly.  Two of his punt returns completely turned around last season’s SEC Championship Game in the Tigers’ favor.

Big news on a Friday.  Just weeks before the start of the season.

If Honey Badger had just been "hot dogging" it on the lake and tossing back a few beer bottles he'd still be at LSU.  Too bad for Les that he can't control his players.

 I'm not a fan of Les Miles by any stretch of the imagination, but a coach can't "control" his players.  He can preach what players need to do, but ulitmately the players has to make the right decision.  This happens at all schools.  My MHO.
