Default LSU's Perrilloux gets the boot...

BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who had legal and disciplinary problems throughout his college career, was kicked off the defending national championship team Friday after he failed a drug test.

LSU coach Les Miles did not offer details, but sources within the program told ESPN.com's Mark Schlabach and ESPN's Joe Schad that Perrilloux failed a drug test.

The drug test result led Miles to dismiss Perrilloux on Friday morning, two sources close to the situation told Schad.

Perrilloux, who had been suspended three times in his college career, "didn't fulfill his obligation as an LSU student-athlete," Miles said in a statement. The school said Friday that Perrilloux is expected to finish out the spring semester.

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

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

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.

A person close to Perrilloux told Schad that the quarterback hopes to transfer to a school in the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA), where he would have two seasons of eligibility left and could play immediately. Were he to transfer to a Bowl Championship Subdivision (I-A) school, he would have to sit out a season.

Perrilloux's lawyer, Nathan Fisher, declined comment Friday. Phone calls to the home of Perrilloux's mother in LaPlace, La., went unanswered.

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.

In 12 games last season, Perrilloux completed 51 of 75 passes for eight touchdowns and two interceptions. He led LSU to two victories -- including the Southeastern Conference championship game -- when Flynn, a senior, was injured during the 2007 season.

Now, the Tigers will need to defend their title with either Hatch, a former transfer from Harvard, or Lee, who reminds some of Flynn.

Perrilloux, who also 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.
Can't blame Coach Les Miles for this. He was gracious in giving his QB three chances but the kid couldn't turn it around. You can't have your projected starting quarterback acting like this. He needs to be a leader. Kudos to Miles for making the right decision in the fear tarnishing his season by getting rid of this starter.
