Why La media and some fans immediately try to link these events to the program (or head coach) being out of control? They say it gives LSU another "black eye".
Stick to the facts. CLM hammered TM7 so nobody can say he is light on the punishment. The only other guys I remember getting arrested while in the program in a long time were JJ and Josh Johns. Charges were dropped on Johns. JJ, TM7, and another guy were arrested after they had left the program. LSU still got a lot of publicity from it but nonetheless they were not under CLM's eye at the time.
Also CLM has suspended star players (TM7, SW, TS, BW38 to name a few) several times for violating team rules. So where is the "out of control" evidence? especially compared to other SEC schools.
