QB Perrilloux tossed off LSU football team
Associated Press ^ | May 2, 2008 | Staff

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who had legal and disciplinary problems throughout his college career, was kicked off the defending national championship team.

Coach Les Miles said Perrilloux "didn't fulfill his obligation as an LSU student-athlete."

Perrilloux was a backup to Matt Flynn for the Tigers, who defeated Ohio State to win the national title.

"Ryan was given every opportunity to be a part of this football team," Miles said in a release Friday.

In 12 games last season, Perrilloux completed 51 of 75 passes for eight touchdowns and two interceptions.

Perrilloux, who was suspended by the Tigers last summer, was on the fringe of a counterfeiting investigation and was caught trying to enter a Baton Rouge casino with false identification. He also was involved in a fracas at a nightclub in November, but was cleared of wrongdoing.

Miles suspended Perrilloux, whose father died Feb. 7, in mid-February after he missed a team meeting, skipped some classes and was late for a handful of conditioning workouts.

Perrilloux had to meet academic requirements and do extra conditioning work before he was reinstated April 6, in time to go with the Tigers to meet President Bush at the White House.

Perrilloux was not allowed to play in LSU's spring game.

Before his last reinstatement, Miles said Perrilloux had been doing better with his classwork. During the spring, redshirt freshman Jarrett Lee and junior Andrew Hatch split time as the quarterback of the Tigers.

Perrilloux is expected to finish out the spring semester at the school, LSU officials said.

LSU is not one of the brighter teams in the NCAA.

Black quarterback. You think he'll fire the coach today, or wait until Monday?

Am I reading correctly that he suspended the kid for missing a team meeting shortly after the death of his father?

That seems a bit harsh.

Hope they have another QB in the wings now that Flynn is gone. This was going to be a down years for the Tigs anyway. Lost a lot of players, lots of tough road games.

When these things happen, its standard procedure to use these types of excuses, because something much more serious went down behind the scenes.

Anybody else thinking of Billy Cannon?

The true story will never come out, I can assure you!

This kid was a thug with a demanding family and his self
destruction was the only way to get rid of an up coming NCAA investigation.

Move on nothing to see here.

Hmm, he’ll probably be starting for Ole Miss or Mississippi State this fall.

I knew it was only a matter of time before LSU would get nailed. They are running a thug program just like Miami always does and it eventually catches up with them.

And the funny thing is he just missed his opportunity to be in this year’s NFL draft.

You mean "demanding more" for his family...and you are right, the true story will not come out.

Ryan Preriloux must have crapped in the coaches chair to get him kicked off the team.

Coach MOLESTER Miles has very low thresh hold when it comes to kicking athletes off the team.

I relent that remark,before this potential prison inmate can become a Cowboy he has to be rejected by the Raiders and 31 other NFL clubs.

Rough trade here on the LSU program. He’s gone and IMOH should have been gone months ago, but it’s done. I can’t wait to see who picks him up. It’s Bush’s fault (thought I’d be the first). FWIW the buzz is a failed drug screen.

"Am I reading correctly that he suspended the kid for missing a team meeting shortly after the death of his father?"

His missing meetings and conditioning workouts may have been overlooked had he not already had issues with counterfiting and trying to enter a casino underage on his record.

I hope this kids pulls it together for his own sake.

Comment:

Molest defined as pester, bother, annoy, bug.

Has to do with his recruiting and retention of thugs on his teams and has nothing to do with his actions towards children or adults.

Said the same thing about him when he was at Oklahoma State.
