Baton Rouge, La. LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who had legal and disciplinary problems throughout his college career, was kicked off the team.
Coach Les Miles said Perrilloux "didn't fulfill his obligation as an LSU student-athlete." Perrilloux was a backup to Matt Flynn for the Tigers, the defending national champions.
"Ryan was given every opportunity to be a part of this football team," Miles said Friday.
In 12 games last season, Perrilloux completed 51 of 75 passes for eight TDs and two interceptions.
