Well, that certainly breaks whatever tie existed between the Alabama and LSU defenses.

Which, of course, means we may have a break in the national championship race.

Randy Rosetta of TigerSportsDigest is reporting that at least three LSU players will be suspended for Saturday’s Auburn game. Two of them appear to be All-American cornerback-in-the-making Tyrann Mathieu and leading rusher Spencer Ware. Les Miles would not confirm the suspensions Wednesday night. 

The Tigers can beat Auburn without both. It puts the game more in question but the Tigers should still win. Most of the implications from today have to do with Nov. 5. Will those guys be on the field against Alabama?

If not, hand our first national semifinal game to the Crimson Tide. Mathieu is a shutdown corner, a punt returner, LSU’s best defender. He was the best Heisman contender at his position since Charles Woodson. Take that kind of guy off the field against Alabama, and that makes not only AJ McCarron more dangerous as a thrower. It makes Trent Richardson a better runner.

Remember, Mathieu has forced six turnovers this season while scoring two touchdowns on defense and special teams. This is shocking conduct from a Honey Badger.

The LSU student paper is reporting that Ware and Mathieu failed drug tests. It’s not immediately clear what procedures are in place at LSU, but at many major programs players face three levels of testing -– from the school, the conference and the NCAA.

Seriously, Dodd.  Players are suspended for drug tests and you discuss this?
When one Iowa player was arrested for drug use last year, you wrote articles speculating that half the team had failed a drug test (when it was actually only one).  You wrote articles about how Iowa players were running a drug house.  And when it happens to your beloved SEC, you ignore the whole thing.  What a pathetic hypocritical lump of $hit you are.

I have to admit that, even as an Auburn fan, the LSU/Alabama game is shaping up to be the SEC Game of the Year, maybe even the Game of the Decade.  Unless Auburn pulls off the upset of the year against LSU, which I hope will happen, the game on 5 Nov in Tuscaloosa will be the most watched college football game in history, excluding conference championship and bowl games.  The Auburn/Alabama game last year would have had as much significance, if the Tide hadn't choked against South Carolina and LSU.  War Eagle!

As a NCAA football fan I hope all of the players on LSU are on the field Nov 5. Alabama will beat LSU by 21 points WITH Ware and the Honey Badger. I cant wait to see Richardson PLANT Honey Badger on his ass while he is trying to make one of his chaotic plays against a solid team and any one of the 11 future NFL prospects an that Alabama Defense remind Ware that he is not playing against Oregon or West Virginia. Oklahoma and Alabama are the two best teams and WILL play for BCS title. THAT will be something to see! Maybe #7 and # 11 can smoke a Doobie prior to kickoff to ease the pain Bama will inflict on them in two weeks.

Mr. Dodd --

"Shocking conduct from a Honey Badger?"  Not at all.  Remember, to paraphrase one of the Internet's most gifted voiceover artists, "Honey badger don't care."

The Death Penalty....still laughing about it.

Hog Authority, you've made my day! I can now tell people that I (regretfully) engaged in conversation with a complete idiot!

Ohio State tried to give you the Sugar Bowl and you still lost!!!!


Before you respond with, "they shouldn't have played", are Hog fans that hard up for a BCS win that you would rather have played OSU without 5 of their best players?


Like I have said in earlier posts, your lack of intelligence and gauge on what is or what is not a punishable offense is laughable.

Wow....the Death Penalty? Should Mississippi State receive the Death Penalty for entertaining negotiations with Cecil Newton?

I just cannot get over how stupid you are.

It's frightening that people with your intelligence exist in today's world......
