Just when everything seemed to be going picture perfect for the No.1-ranked LSU Tigers, some shocking news came about today that could leave Les Miles' team without several of their top players for an extended period of time.
The LSU student newspaper, The Daily Reveille, first reported today that LSU has suspended star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, running back Spencer Ware and defensive back Tharold Simon for the Tigers' game this Saturday against Auburn. The three players were suspended because they reportedly failed drug tests.
The word right now is that the suspension will take place for the Auburn and could stem beyond that. But head coach Les Miles would not confirm the suspensions.
Let's break down this big news and take an inside look at what it would mean for the Tigers going forward.
