Tyrann Mathieu Loses Remaining Eligibility Over Club Promoters?

Updated: October 17, 2012

There is a saying. And that saying goes: when it rains, it pours. It seems like nothing but bad fortune is falling on LSU’s former superstar Tyrann Mathieu.

Tyrann has been sitting this season out from college football due to personal issues but it seems like he may not be able to return to the college ranks if and when he decides to come back. Tyrann will probably lose his eligibility due to allowing his image to be used on a club flyer. This is the same issue UNC WR Dwight Joness ran into a year ago. No NCAA player is permitted to allow his image to be used in promotion of any kind of commercial (money making) activity.

It’s another break of bad news for Tyrann who is just trying to live as normal a life as possible under the microscope and maintain his potential as a future NFL star. If Tyrann came to YA BOY for advice I’d tell him to do one thing and one thing only:

move out of Louisiana.

Move out of Texas, Louisiana, etc. wherever he’s been living at lately and go far, far, away from the people who he’s surrounding himself with. I am sure there are multiple agents that wouldn’t mind helping him move and train for the NFL Draft.

The last thing he needs right now is the distractions and expectations from those he’s around right now. Move, work on yourself, and secure your future. This seems like a bit harsh advice over some club pics but that’s today. Today it’s club pics. Yesterday it was drugs. Who knows what will happen tomorrow. Sometimes if you want to prosper you have to leave the homies at home.
