'Honey Badger' dismissed from LSU

National Football Post

Stunning news has come out of Baton Rouge today as defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, a Heisman Trophy finalist last season, has been booted from the LSU football team.

Tigers head coach Les Miles has just announced at a press conference that the "Honey Badger" has been dismissed for violations of team policy.

Mathieu was suspended last year for one game for reportedly using synthetic marijuana. LSU never confirmed the specific reason of the suspension.

With Mathieu gone, junior Tharold Simon is the only cornerback of significant experience on the roster. The team has three true freshmen and one redshirt freshman at the position on the depth chart.

More on this developing story soon.
