→ Honey Badger Trying to Stay at LSU to Play Next Season

As intriguing as this possibility is, it’s difficult to see it becoming a reality. Mathieu knew the consequences of drug use at LSU and he continued to engage in it anyway. To be dismissed from the team, Mathieu had to have failed at least three tests. This is a substance abuse problem and he needs medical help. Can he get that? Of course. But would whoever helps him recommend him going back to the environment that put him there in the first place? Probably not.

I just assumed he would play I-AA ball this year and then be a top-10 pick in the draft. It might be a good counterweight on his character if he sticks around without being able to play. It worked for LarGarette Blount.
