Subject: LSU Suspends LB Tyler Taylor for Violating Team Rules

LSU has suspended linebacker Tyler Taylor. What's most interesting is that the nominal reason is the ubiquitous "violation of team rules." But an important background fact is that Taylor was arrested on May 31 for serving as the getaway driver in an armed robbery which netted a significant cache of weapons.

Here's the part that needs further explanation from LSU. Taylor posted $33,550 in bond upon arrest and had been practicing normally with the team thus far.

So what exactly happened in the last day or two to warrant the suspension? Did LSU just find out about the armed robbery three months ago? Or was LSU treating Taylor as innocent until proven guilty but then yesterday he showed up late for morning lifts?

Or do LSU "team rules" cover armed robberies? Which, if they do, you have to admire LSU's comprehensive approach to team rules.

I suspect it was found they took a gun pawned by another member of the team.

I actually found a copy of the LSU team rules (see below). I guess he violated rule #3 under general conduct.

General Conduct
1. Know and follow the Code of Student Conduct.
2. Obey residence halls policies and regulations.
3. Obey all federal, state and city laws.
4. Maintain proper standards of grooming and dress.
5. Abstain from using tobacco, alcohol and non-therapeutic drugs (see Policy 506B,
Student-Athletes: Drug Policy).

Surely you are not suggesting it's not a violation of the Student Code of Conduct (#1) to engage in armed robbery?

When do you think a player was last discharged for violation of Rule #5 for use of tobacco or alcohol?

That also. It's just that #3 is more specific.
