As I’ve learned in my few years on this earth, sometimes it’s better to just say nothing, than to comment on a subject at all. Last week reported on the leaked information that came out in regards to Tyrann Mathieu telling an NFL assistant coach that he failed 10 or more drug test at LSU.
LSU’s head coach Les Miles was on NFL AM this morning, and according to Pro Football Talk, said that “he didn’t know how many test Mathieu failed, but the school did everything they could to help him.”
“I don’t really have the numbers there,” Miles said. “I would be remiss to comment on number. I can tell you this: We have tested, re-tested, completely tested and tested twice in weeks at times. So just because there’s a number reported, I don’t know if that would be low or high, to be honest with you, and I can only tell you that it was based on our ability to treat and help. I don’t really know exactly what Ty’s specifics were, but I stand by our policy, and it really did help, in some way, identify a problem.”
Miles was asked about how Mathieu translates to the NFL game, and Miles indicated it should start at special teams first, and go from their.
“He’s a guy who has spectacular ball skills. I’ve never seen him mishandle a ball. His vision for play, he anticipates the big play,” Miles said. “If I’m an NFL team I’m going to look at him first as a punt returner, I’m going to look at him as a kick returner, and the opportunity for him to play in a number of spots as a nickel/dime corner.”
BEST OF MAXIM
Honey Badger didn’t play very in that game and maybe now we know why. It doesn’t look like he was mentally or physically ready to play, according to some recent quotes from ESPN The Magazine.
According to the profile, Mathieu was so disinterested leading up to that game that he spent 14 hours a day sleeping in the team hotel, and he told his girlfriend, “I don’t even want...

NOT GOING TO GO WELL
LSU running back Alfred Blue made some homophobic remarks recently about how football is an "aggressive sport that grown men are supposed to play."
LSU senior running back Alfred Blue has weighed in on the issue how a gay football player would be received, the Daily Reveille school paper reported.

Following LSU's final spring practice before the spring game on Saturday, Les Miles will meet with the media to discuss where things stand with his team. TSD will be live at the indoor practice facility to provide up updates throughout the press conference
Athletes within Louisiana State University were able to gve their thoughts about playing with gay teammate. While someone gave some rather encouraging answers, running back Alfred Blue made a very troubling statement to the Daily Reveille when given the opportunity: “Football is supposed to be this violent sport — this aggressive sport that grown men are supposed to play,”...
We can’t bury our heads in the sand and pretend that a lot of people don’t feel the same way Alfred Blue does, about gay football players.
Probably, not very smart though to say it in public, but if you say it, you need to say it with your chest and stand behind it. Here are the quotes courtesy of The Big Lead.
“Football is supposed to be this violent sport — this aggressive...
America: Land of the Free to Have Stupid Facial HairI don’t get people. I don’t get how they can be born with unnatural talent and put in a position that people would (and have) kill to be in, to make millions upon millions of dollars for playing a game that people love. And all the while they can’t grasp the basic idea of thinking before speaking. But then, as I’ve pointed...
