LSU Tyrann Mathieu Dismissed From Team After 3rd Failed Drug Test
This could be considered Karma as the Honey Badger went off on the media via Twitter for being too critical of him.
If they didn’t have a legit reason to be critical of him before, they do now. This isn’t the first time Mathieu has been suspended. You have to be pretty dumb to fail not 1, not 2, but 3 drug tests. That makes you a Drug addict.
“This is a very difficult day for our team,” Miles said. “We lose a quality person, teammate and contributor to the program. However, with that being said, we have a standard that our players are held to and when that standard is not met, there are consequences.
“It’s hard because we all love Tyrann. We will do what we can as coaches, teammates, and friends to get him on a path where he can have success. We are going to miss him.
He will have more time to take naked pics of himself now.
Here are his options going forward:
Now, Mathieu’s eligibility to play elsewhere is in question. As Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com points out, if Mathieu did fail a third test, he would not be eligible to play at another NCAA school. Feldman says Mathieu would have to be eligible to play at the school from which he’s transferring. That means Mathieu might only be immediately eligible to play at an NAIA school, junior college or HBCU immediately. Of course, Mathieu could sit out a season and play next year at the school of his choice provided that he was eligible.
Also, Mathieu, a true junior, must wait one more year before he is eligible for the NFL.
