End of the line for Ryan Perrilloux?

Posted on: February 18, 2008 9:16 pm

As a three-time "loser", Ryan Perrilloux is running out of chances at LSU.

The talented LSU quarterback's third career suspension came down Monday from coach Les Miles. The announcement contained no specifics but apparently it is the result of a bunch of little stuff like being late for meetings, classes etc. Except that Perrilloux has exactly no equity built up with Miles. The three suspensions have been for different and troubling reasons

Combine that with the fact that Perrilloux arguably saved LSU's season with effective backup work and his do-or-die start in the SEC championship game. This was going to be his team in 2008. Miles has little behind him on the depth chart but it is clear the coach has little patience. I scraped up this two-day old blog
 if you really want to get into rumor mongering.

Bottom line: Don't be surrpised if Crazy Les boots even crazier Ryan. How do you screw up such a great situation? From quarterback of the defending national champions to looking for a school to transfer to.

Well one FCS (formerly Div I-AA) school that is not in need of a QB, is Appalachian State.

We have our QB returning as a Junior this year, the small but quick play maker Armanti Edwards. Learn his name, he will be something fantastic.

I just wonder how this will pan out for LSU in their opener against my alma mater? Man, I really do not want to hear the whining...our coach suspended our QB, we got nothing...

I know what you are thinking, bucknuts, but RR has already blackened the eye of UM with his off season problems. But I'm not sure Michigan will sit back and let him bring in this kid with his apparent problems, too.

Sooner or later, UM is going to have to do damage control as it is ... And I know that you UM fans are going to make excuses for RR. I don't want that arguement to strart up again .... you're the only ones that don't think so ...

Besides, if he transfers right now, wouldn't he have to sit out for a year? He won't help them in '08 .. and RR needs help now ...

If he was getting tossed out, he already would have been.

So, why exacty would you want Ryan Perrilloux on your team? It's obvious the guy gets in trouble everytime he turns around, and regardless of how good a player is, his discipline problems are always more important. If Coach Miles boots him off the team, I think it would probably be in the best interest of LSU, and for Ryan Perrilloux because maybe then he'll shape his act up. If he is kicked off, I don't know why a school would take him, unless they are just very very desperate and don't care about discipline or the integrity of a sport.

Beamer already has Tyrod Taylor stepping up next year.

If Les Miles is so lenient why did he give Kyle Anderson and Zhamal Thomas the boot last year when we were so thin in the O-line last year (eventually moving top DT recruit to OT)  He gave Derrick Odom the boot last year too, knowing that he was a top candidate to replace Ali Highsmith.  If this were a legal matter, I have no doubt that RP would be gone, but it's not so he aint.  I'm still rooting for this kid to get his crap together.  There's nothing more frustrating than wasted talent.

HELLO - There's no way that Perriloux doesn't play for LSU.  For Christ's sake its the SEC?  Unless you are physically locked up by the cops on gameday SEC coaches will always find an excuse to let their star player (and let's not kid ourselves, he is LSU's star this year) suit up for gametime. 

I'm glad to finally see Fulmer actually having some backbone and kicking kids off the team.  I'm not talking about indefinite suspensions (which always seem to end once it is time for practice to start), but kicking them off.  SEC sold it's soul years ago and now they are quick to explain away problems and punishments as "being handled internally".  To me that is BS.  If the universities are funded with taxpayer money, the citizens have a right to know what happened here, as they are paying the kids way through college.

Perriloux seems like a kid who was told he was the s#%t all through middle school and high school and thinks he can do no wrong.  Miles needs to purge him and teach him (and those coming after him) a lesson.

Thanks, Mr. Dead.  But I know the man.  I don't need to know what a bunch of stupid media people think about him.

Have any of you posters stopped to think about the timing of the suspension?  It's in the OFF-SEASON, guys!  He'll maybe miss Spring ball, then be "reinstated" for summer 2-a-days, and maybe not be allowed to start the first game or two against the cupcakes that pop up on the schedule in September.  He serves a 5-month "suspension" from...what, exactly?  Then plays in the Fall.  If memory serves, this is EXACTLY what happened on his last suspension!  I think I see a pattern here.  Miles would play a serial killer if it helped him win a game or two.
