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.

This was my last game in Tiger Stadium as a student.

I just wanted to thank LSU Athletics, Coach Les Miles and the LSU Tigers for the wonderful 4 years of football I’ve gotten to enjoy in Tiger Stadium.  I’m proud to say that I attended every home game since 2007.

At Tiger Stadium, I saw 24 wins and 5 losses.  There’s been joy and there’s been heartbreak, and thank God there’s been much more joy than heartbreak.  Tonight was a bittersweet moment.  The win was sweet.  The fact that I probably won’t be returning to Tiger Stadium for awhile is bitter, but I’ll sign up for the season ticket waiting list as soon as I can.

Once again, thanks to everybody involved for making this a special time for me.  Geaux Tigers!
