LSU starting linebacker Michael Divinity is no longer on the football team "due to personal reasons," according to Brody Miller with The Athletic.

The report was quickly confirmed by Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated.

Divinity, a senior from Marrero, La., was held out of three games this season due to a "coach's reason."

You are miserable person to use a game to undermine a kid fighting a personal matter. You are no better than Bama fans who sexually violated a passed out student, burned trees down, and called in bomb threats to a stadium full of inocent people. Glad you have football going for you because other than that, you seem like a deplorable loser who is faiiing at life.

Several failed drug tests apparently. Very unfortunate for the team. Best of luck.

Ya.. if it is the drugs, I hate to see that from a senior. Especially one that is one of the main leaders according to the coaching staff. Hopefully the team can find a way to use it as fuel and play hard and execute well for him and hopefully Mike won’t lose his way over this.. you know, keep his head up, learn from it and move on. We’ve all made mistakes. It’s how you deal with the consequences that builds character.

I’m also glad to see Coach O and the staff doing the right thing. They have him plenty of chances and then I imagine they stuck to their word and carried out the punishment he was warned with. A lot of coaches would try to cover it up and keep him on the team to have a better product on the field. But as a head Coach sometimes for the good of the young man, gotta show some tough love to help teach the kid some discipline etc. just another piece of evidence pointing to a great coach, and a man of true integrity.

I guess smoking weed is more important than playing in the biggest game of the year

He himself said he wasn't feeling it any more. Hope he finds it again. Good luck young man.

That's unfortunate. Best wishes to him moving forward.

could be a number of reasons, but my gut is telling me that he suffers some sort of depression/mental illness. He may suffer from mental illness and could have been brought on from multiple hits to the head or just from an unfortunate genetic cocktail.

@daeizbae Mathieu is a rare example from one learning of his mistakes. The majority do not

Ive seen a lot of people blaming this on drugs, but I dont think thats a fair assumption to make about someone whos given so much to the program. A couple weeks ago he tweeted out that he has lost his love for the game. So whatever is going on is a personal issue, and as fans of this team we just all need to support his decision and let him figure himself out. Next man up.

When you have the opportunity that these guys have and you find yourself in this situation....you’re only as good as the last blunt you got caught smoking

I agree and wrote a similar comment. If drugs were involved, maybe it was to cope with somehting we are totally unaware of.

Sorry to hear that. He made some HUGE plays in big games.

Wasn’t he saying he lost his love of the game a few weeks ago?

Even if that is true, how could you not get fired up for a game at Bama?
