Ryan Perrilloux

Ryan Perrilloux is in the news today for getting kicked off the LSU football team:

LSU better off without Ryan Perrilloux?

It's obvious Ryan Perrilloux's ship was sinking in February. I addressed it. It's really a shame. Hopefully he goes to a smaller pond, refocuses and resurfaces again some day.

I love the move on Les Miles' part, and everyone at LSU should as well.

Had Perrilloux stayed, he would have officially become larger than the team, which is cancerous for a group that won the national title and lost a group of players including offensive leaders Matt Flynn, Jacob Hester and Early Doucet as well as Ali Highsmith, Glenn Dorsey, Chevis Jackson and Craig Steltz on defense.

With a new group of leaders comes a search for identity and the focus shouldn't be on a guy who was allowed to bend the rules.

But Miles knows this and that's why he made the right move.

LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux has been dismissed from the team. Head coach Les Miles says that Perrilloux "didn't fulfill his obligation as an LSU student-athlete." He is declining additional comment.

LSU said Friday that Perrilloux is expected to finish out the spring semester at the school.

Perrilloux ran up against the law and team discipline with regularity at LSU. He was on the fringe of a counterfeiting investigation and was caught trying to enter a Baton Rouge casino with a false identification. That got him suspended all of last summer.

He also was involved in a fracas at a nightclub in November, but he was cleared of wrongdoing. link
