LSU Running Back Jeremy Hill Arrested After Attack

Police-LightsBaton Rouge police arrested LSU running back Jeremy Hill early Saturday morning.  The charge is simple battery after an incident at an off-campus bar near LSU.

The 20-year old male victim told police he lost consciousness after being struck in the head numerous times.  A video camera reportedly caught Hill and a second unidentified man striking the victim.  Hill was arrested and released after posting a $500 bond.  Police are still searching for the second suspect.

This is not Hill’s first brush with authorities.  He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge involving a 2010 incident with a 14-year old girl and could be in violation of his probation stemming from that arrest.

Hill was LSU’s leading rusher last season with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns on 142 carries.

This is the second arrest involving the LSU program in the last few days.  Former defensive back Tharold Simon was arrested Thursday in his hometown on charges that involved public intimidation of a police officer.  Simon was drafted in the fifth round Saturday by Seattle.

LSU CB Simon To Leave Early For The NFL

mrsec-breaking-newsLSU cornerback Tharold Simon is the latest Tiger to announce he’s jumping to the NFL early.  Yesterday, linebacker Kevin Minter and safety Eric Reid announced their intentions to depart.

A very quick stat check shows that Simon, Minter and Reid combined for 266 tackles and six interceptions this past year.

The Difference At LSU? Not As Much Fun In The Locker Room

When it comes to what’s different between last year’s 13-1 LSU team and this year’s 5-0 (but less impressive the past two weeks) squad, cornerback Tharold Simon thinks he knows the problem:

 

“Last year, it was so much fun.  We came together in the locker room, clowning around on the field — still being serious, but also having fun. 

This year is totally different.  We’re not clowning around in the locker room or talking outside of practice.  We don’t get together like we did last year… That’s been a big problem for us.  We just need people to step up.  The whole team needs to step up and lead each other.”

 

Simon also told The Baton Rouge Advocate that outside pressures and the loss of Tyrann Mathieu have added to the team’s morale issues.

That’s probably not what you want to hear a player saying if you’re a Tiger fan preparing to watch tomorrow’s LSU-Florida Top 10 clash from the Swamp.

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.

3.  This writer doesn’t believe Vanderbilt did its new coach any favors by inking a deal to play at Ohio State in 2013.

More to come…
