Found August 10, 2012 on No Guts, No Glory:
PLAYERS: Tyrann MathieuLes Miles
TEAMS: LSU Tigers
Besides being suspended last season after a failed drug test and sparring with players from other teams on Twitter, Tyrann Mathieu has kept his nose relatively clean. But today, Les Miles shocked everyone when he announced at a press conference that Mathieu has been kicked off the LSU football team for violating team policy. Miles would not reveal which team policies were violated but had this to say in his statement: “This is a very difficult day for our team. 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. “It’s hard because we all love Tyrann. We will do what we can as coaches, teammates, and friends to get him on a path where he can have success. We are going to miss him.”
