Tyrann Mathieu, the New Orleans native that won the hearts of college football fans across the nation with is playmaking ability last season, is no longer playing football for LSU.
It's a pretty shocking announcement to those who have been more focused on the Olympics and the Saints preseason, but there were rumors that Mathieu was going to be disciplined in some way. Seeing as how LSU made the announcement on a Friday, they were probably hoping this story would slip under the radar and be forgotten over the weekend but it is nonetheless a huge loss for the Tigers going into the season.
No word yet on what exactly Mathieu did to get kicked off the team other than he violated team rules. In 2011, Mathieu missed playing time because of a drug violation.
We will miss you, Honey Badger.
