Yesterday we told you of Sports Illustrated’s new profile of former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu. The profile was not the most positive thing ever written as it dealt with the Honey Badger’s dismissal from LSU’s team this season, his brief drug rahab stint, and possible NCAA violations that he might have committed while still a member of the Tiger football team.
According to SI.com, Mathieu’s image was used to promote parties at nightclubs in both Baton Rouge and New Orleans. His image appeared on fliers and in video promotions for the events and — according to Sports Illustrated — Mathieu and current Tiger defensive tackle Anthony Johnson might have also received VIP treatment at the clubs. If true, those claims could cause worries for LSU and Johnson. They could also prevent Mathieu from returning to the Tigers next season as he had hoped.
Well, his adoptive parents have lashed out at SI.com over the report.
