Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu is one of the most polarizing figures in sports and is attempting a comeback at football after a battle with off-field issues.
Mathieu was one of the most electrifying players in the world of college football during his two years at LSU. He managed to finish as a runner-up for the Heisman trophy in 2011 despite playing a defensive position.
Of course, Mathieu was then dismissed from the LSU program in 2012 for another violation and was later arrested for marijuana.
On the field, Mathieu is often knocked for his short stature at 5'9", but there's no debating whether he is a major playmaker—his four interceptions, 11 forced fumbles and two punt returns for touchdowns during his time at LSU are proof enough.
Let's take a moment to break down some of the best highlights of Mathieu's brief stint with the LSU program.
