|"The Honey Badger understands accountability!"|
Handling that business is the determining factor between failure and success. This week top-ranked LSU has suspended star cornerback and Heisman candidate Tyrann Mathieu known as the "Honey Badger" and star running back Spencer Ware for Saturday's home game against
A source told The Associated Press that defensive back Tharold Simon is also suspended, and that the players ran afoul of the team's drug policy. The source did not specify the drug for which the players tested positive. The suspensions are only for one game, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad.
Head Coach Les Myles tried to keep the situation from looking too bad by saying, "I understand the interest which surrounds what seems to be news. There is internal discipline and internal news," Miles said. "I have a process I go through. ... It's a procedure I'm true to. There is no real information about any player that I'll address at this point."
Let's keep it all the way 100 coach! This is a big deal! You're losing at least two of the most productive players on your team and probably the best defensive player in the country in the "Honey Badger". He has forced four fumbles, recovering three and returning two for scores. He also has two interceptions and 42 tackles including 1½ sacks. That's huge hole to fill bruh!
When you're the #1 ranked team in the country you can't afford to show up limping because everybody is going to give you their best shot and
I know that these are 18-22 year olds but we need to start teaching young boys about handling grown man business while they're in middle school at the very latest. Understanding how to handle that business is necessary at that age because they've already begun to play sports and like girls etc. Being accountable to whatever is important to you sets the tone for your life.
These three young men have not only let themselves down but also their parents, teammates, coaches and fans. As they get older, if they never completely learn what handling grown man business is they'll let down the most important group of people in their lives, their wives and children.
This is bigger than just some silly kids getting caught with drugs and violating team rules. If you can't put simple distractions away while you're on the verge of competing for a national title. What can you put them away for? That's probably the most important goal in your life at that time if you are a student-athlete. We've already seen Jordan Jefferson nearly ruin his life by getting into a bar fight prior to the season starting. He was initially facing felony charges that easily could have landed him in jail. Blame emotion!
We've got to teach our young boys to take the emotions out of their critical decision making because God didn't wire males to operate like that. Women are wired to make decisions with emotion. not men. However, so many of our young men have been raised without fathers. So who do they see making decisions on a regular basis? Mom! Just ask Vince Young about how making decisions with your emotions works out.
I'm not knocking single mothers because they've been forced to raised these children because dead beat dads didn't learn what "Grown Man Business" meant when they were children. Once again, being a grown man is understanding that you've got to do what you're supposed to do before you can do what you want to do! Grown Man Business Is Grown Man Business!
Holla At Ya Boy!
