"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
There is a brief article at the WWL stating that Tyrann Mathieu is interested in returning to LSU. He wants to attend classes this year on his own dime, and be readmitted to the team for the two years following. The article indicates that he hasn't been dismissed from LSU, but from the team, making this a possibility if the academic and athletic administrations can work it out.
Mathieu has been described as "heartbroken" and "grieving" since his dismissal from the team. Mathieu has told people close to him that he is interested in working on his maturity and character and also in seeking out any way to continue his education at LSU.
