LSU's Tyrann Mathieu Dismissed From Team

In this article…

LSU's Tyrann Mathieu, nicknamed the "Honey Badger" because of his tenacity on the field despite his size, has been dismissed from the football team.  Via SI.com:

LSU has dismissed Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu from its football program for violating school and team rules.

The junior defensive back nicknamed Honey Badger was a surprising Heisman Trophy candidate last season as the Tigers won the Southeastern Conference championship and reached the BCS title game. LSU lost the championship 21-0 to Alabama.

At a news conference Friday, coach Les Miles would not specify the reason Mathieu was kicked off the team.

Mathieu was a key member of LSU's run to the national championship game last year, but he had a few incidents during his time in Baton Rouge.  It appears that he committed an act beyond reproach and was finally let go.  The reasons still haven't been released, but we will update as soon as that information is available.
