It's time for Tyrann Mathieu to leave LSU

As reluctant as he is to do so, it is time for Tyrann Mathieu to move on.

Mathieu has made an attempt to return to LSU. If the school would allow it, my guess is Mathieu would return, sit out a year and come back for the 2013 season.

But Mathieu and LSU have a dilemma. It is clearly spelled out in LSU's athletic drug testing policy that once multiple violations occur permanent ineligibility kicks in. That is the clause that the school's compliance officer referred to Monday.

Wednesday, an LSU spokesman denied that Miles and Mathieu met Tuesday night.

Mathieu clearly understands what is lost. He was a Heisman Trophy candidate on one of the best teams in the country, in the best league in the country.

It still looks like Mathieu will wind up at a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) school, likely McNeese. That could happen as early as Thursday.

Mathieu and LSU both wish things could be different.
