Tyrann Mathieu disputes USA Today report

tyrann mathieu 2Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu says that LSU did their best in trying to help him overcome his drug addiction, despite a report from USA Today that says otherwise.

“It is irresponsible and shows a lack of integrity for anyone to disclose medical information regardless of how it was gathered,” Mathieu said.   “I would expect that conversations regarding my drug testing history during the course of my medical treatment would be private.  LSU has a strong drug testing program and LSU went to great lengths to help me in my treatment and recovery.  I understand that many people enjoy reading about the negative side of sports, but to publish those second-hand comments without being given a chance to address that comment prior to the publication of the article is irresponsible.”

Well if LSu did such a great job how come he couldn’t overcome his addiction until after he was kicked out of school?  Just a question, would love to hear LSU’s answer.
