In an interview with Yahoo Sports , Ryan Perrilloux talks for
the first time about the events leading to his recent dismissal from the LSU
football team. Following a string of team suspensions in a tumultuous two-year
career at LSU, the heir apparent quarterback was kicked off the team last month
after again violating team rules. Coach Les Miles never stated the direct
reason for Perrilloux’s dismissal, although reports surfaced that Perrilloux
had failed a drug test.
Perrilloux, now starting over at Division II
Jacksonville State in North Ala., declines to answer a question regarding the
drug test. Perrilloux does tell Yahoo Sports he has battled with Obsessive
Compulsive Disorder and was prescribed medication for anxiety symptoms. He also
talks about some of his other past troubles, which he hopes to now put behind
him. "It took me to be dismissed from LSU to realize
I have to be a person that does the right things all of the time,” he says. His
first game at Jacksonville State will be a nationally televised ESPN game
against Georgia Tech. “This school is perfect for me,” Perrilloux says. “It’s in a small town. I’m surrounded by good people, good supportive people. It’s just a great opportunity for my second chance at a college football career.”

The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
