LSU have dismissed Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu from the football team for violating school and team rules! Huge blow to the program. He's looking to transfer to another school.

does any one else see this statement as an oxymoron;

I think he is a quality, quality guy who had a behavior issue.
LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva said Mathieu's rule violations were an "ongoing issue."


How many quality guys do you know who have behavior issues.. maybe a preschooler or two but not a 19/20 year old. Those are NOT Quality GUYS.. those are idiots!

He was probably the best known college footballer in the nation. If you could pick one player who everyone has heard of, it would be honey badger. Then throw in he wins defensive player of the year as a sophomore and it is easy to go to your head, he likely believed himself to be above the rules.

He won't anymore.

University of North Alabama took the Florida star defensive back that time who was constantly in trouble and got thrown off the Gators team. Is Florence, Alabama a possible next stop for badger?

The first time I watched this guy and saw how he carried himself, my exact quote was, "The next Pacman Jones."

Looks like my intuition was correct.

Ricky Williams is a better comparison... Honey Badger hasnt had any legal trouble which was Pacmans problems. he just likes the sticky icky... Wouldn't consider the kid bad for that.
