With Mathieu’s Dismissal, CBSSports Creates “All-Castoff Team”
With LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu being dismissed from LSU’s team, CBS sports released an “All-Castoff Team.” It includes all the players who had to leave their teams before the 2012 season.
It’s sad to say, but there are some good players on the hypothetical team.
The head coach is former Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino. Petrino is an offensive genius, but his decision-making off the field has always been questionable.
The quarterback is former Auburn Tiger Zeke Pike, who is joined by former Auburn running back Michael Dyer. Dyer was to play for Arkansas State this year but has had some off the field problems.
Penn State is well represented with wide receiver Devon Smith and defensive lineman Shawn Oakman. TCU has three former players on the team, with DL D.J. Yendry, LB Tanner Brock, and DB Devin Johnson. Johnson would be part of a secondary that includes two players who were expected to be All-Americans: Tyrann Mathieu and former Florida State DB Greg Reid.
Ohio State is represented by former linebacker Storm Klein.
The talent is there, but the attitude on this team probably wouldn’t be very good.
