01:28 PM ET 04.12 | Former LSU Tigers star Tyrann Mathieu is trying to get his life together with the 2013 NFL Draft just a few weeks away. As he begins the interviewing process with NFL teams around the league, Mathieu admitted that he failed at least 10 drug tests while playing in college. "I quit counting at 10. I really don't know," Mathieu said in a meeting with one of the coaching staffs, according to a report from USA Today. Mathieu, a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2011, was dismissed from the program last August for breaking an athletic department rule.

Does LSU have a substance abuse policy?

You would think that LSU would have dismissed him from the team after the second positive test. Then again it is the SEC.

Either y'all's compliance policies/enforcement is a total joke, or Les just bent all the rules. Or both.
