    If the mom in question is his adopted mother Sheila she is a RN and she does not look elderly at all.

    I love the hypocrisy of it all.

    Slams TM7 for "using his image" to promote a party.
    Yet the magazine uses TM7 image to sell the very magazine bashing Mathieu.
    southcampus likes this.

    what I don't get is the timing of the article.

    Honey Badger was a story a few months ago.

    however, since then, he has done everything in his power to avoid the spotlight and stay low key.

    there really isn't anything new in the article other than hinting at his ineligibility with very little substance backing it.

    as of now, until further notice, he's never playing football at LSU again.
    so why write it now?

    why not release this when it was actually news that he wasn't playing?
    or wait until he plays somewhere again, be it LSU, some other school, the NFL, etc?

    I'm rooting for the guy, and by all accounts, he is really trying to straighten out his life and do the right thing.

    This kid was dealt a horrible hand in life.
    And yet when given the chance to take the easy way out (go 1aa and then pro), he chose to take the harder path.
    Rehab, pay his own way to stay at LSU, and is trying to get back on the team.

    I hope he makes it.
    and not just because he's a phenomenal player for my favorite team.
    I would be pulling for his success even if he was at some other non-SEC school.

    Controversy sells.

    Welcome to the world of Ohio State fans.

    oh i understand completely why to write it.
    it's the timing that makes no sense.

    write it back in August or so when it was still a question as to if he was going to transfer and play elsewhere.
    that would bring into question his eligibility when he was a hot commodity.

    or sit on it until word is released if he's going to play at LSU again.

    now, when there isn't any way of knowing if he'll even play college ball again?
    makes no sense.

    if he goes pro in the next draft, this article was completely pointless and accomplished nothing.

    Probably for no other reason than to get a little more legs out of his story. Wouldn't surprise me if the marketing gurus came in and something along the lines of "Honey Badger has the most market penetration of any name among college football fans, if we publish now we can still leverage that familiarity".

    Tide deserves higher ranking than simply No. 1

    buxfan4life The future's so bright, I've gotta wear... shades.

    SI was fun to read when I was 12 - 13 (LOVED the swimsuit issues. Kathy Ireland and Elle MacPherson....major fap material).

    Seems like demographic they are still trying to target.

    YAWN. Heard the same song and dance about Cryami in '02, and again in '05 with USC.

    For the record that article was in the Montgomery (AL) by a USA Today contributor.

    I changed the thread topic to...

    "Sports 'journalists' In General (Who Don't Work For ESPN) Looking Stupid"
