Blazing Saddles is a one the greatest movies of all time, but that is not what this article is about; this one is about the stupidity of Tyrann Mathieu. The Honey Badger is not blazing saddles, he is blazing something else. The former LSU cornerback and Heisman candidate was caught with possession of marijuana yesterday; this just months after getting kicked off the football team. He went to therapy, looked like he had a shot at a future comeback, and has now just ruined it.
I am not going to pretend to know the facts about the addictive qualities of marijuana, but I do know that the Honey Badger has a big problem. How hard can it be to stop? He failed several drug tests, got kicked off the team, and he still continues to blaze. What an idiot. It is not a physical problem; it is a mental problem. He might have just thrown away a chance at millions of dollars and a nice career in the NFL. It will be interesting to see where Mathieu is in five years; probably somewhere chilling with another LSU bust: Jamarcus Russell.
The Honey Badger had a chance to transfer schools and play immediately, assuming it was an FCS school. At the time, it looked like going to therapy and attempting to return to LSU was a better plan for his future. Playing against mediocre college football teams with bottom feeder recruits would have been a waste of time.
In hindsight, maybe he should have transferred schools. He probably should have transferred to Atari Bigby’s alma mater, the University of “Jah, Rastafari” – That would have been a perfect fit. I truly hope the Badger figures things out and turns his life around, but I will be the first to say that he is an idiot.
