Miles Gives ‘Honey Badger’ The Boot
The "Honey Badger", Tyrann Mathieu is no longer an LSU Tiger. Head Coach Les Miles said that Mathieu is being let go after again violating team rules. The coach did not give specific details. Mathieu was suspended last year for one game for reportedly using synthetic marijuana. This was never confirmed by LSU officials. Mathieu was a finalist for the 2011 Heisman Trophy.
“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." - LSU Head Coach Les Miles
