LSU has dismissed Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu from its football program for "violating school and team rules." Les Miles wouldn't give the details, but we do know that Mathieu failed a drug test and was suspended for a game a year ago. There seems to be some disagreement among articles whether Mathieu could possibly transfer to an FCS school and play right away, or whether he would need to wait a year. He absolutely would need to take a year off if he transfers to an FBS school.
