Has the Honey Badger Blown His Last Chances to Return to College Football?
As if Tyrann “The Honey Badger” Mathieu hasn’t had a bad enough year, the cover story in the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated is reporting that even if the cornerback managed to get back in the good graces of LSU, he may have ruined his own eligibility to play at all — much less with the Tigers.
The SI article quotes sources that say Mathieu may have traded in on his recent celebrity in ways that might keep him off the field for good:
The unconfirmed aim for the 20-year-old Mathieu, who declined to speak to SI, is to play for the Tigers next year. But that possibility may be more tenuous than he knows: Since last January, Mathieu has allowed his image to be used on a flyer promoting an event at a local night club, appeared in several promotional videos online and, multiple sources told SI, received benefits at the club that could affect his eligibility.Source: www.sportsillustrated.cnn.com
