When it comes to LSU, the Honey Badger does care.
Three days after being dismissed from the Tigers program by head coach Les Miles, LSU sources tell ESPN’s Joe Schad that cornerback Tyrann Mathieu says that he would be willing to sit out the 2012 season and enroll in classes at LSU with hopes of returning to the team in 2013.
Mathieu cites the “support system” of LSU for his primary reason for wanting to remain in Baton Rouge. Schad says he has been described as “heartbroken” and “grieving” since his dismissal from the team.
The cornerback’s desire to repent is an expected reaction to his rapid fall from grace. If he truly wants to be a Tiger again, his next step will be controlling the “Honey Badger” alter ego that got him into trouble in the first place.
