Report: Tyrann Mathieu might lose eligibility at LSU

Sports Illustrated reports former LSU Tigers defensive back Tyrann Mathieu might lose his eligibility at LSU.

In a magazine cover story, Sports Illustrated reports that since January of this year, Mathieu has received several benefits that could affect his potential eligibility.

The magazine alleges that among other things, Mathieu allowed his picture to be used in promotional materials for a nightclub.

Mathieu, also known as the "Honey Badger," went from rock star status with the Tigers to being kicked off the team after testing positive for drugs.

After a stint in rehab, Mathieu has returned to classes at LSU with hopes of eventually playing again.
