TigerRag - Brad Wing suspended for Chick-fil-A Bowl

TigerRag - Brad Wing suspended for Chick-fil-A Bowl

According to one source in the athletic department, Wing’s suspension is related to a failed drug test. Wing was suspended for LSU’s opener against North Texas, also a result of a failed drug test, the source said.

Fellow Australian Jamie Keehn, who punted three times for an average of 41.0 yards against North Texas, will likely take over the punting duties for the Tigers against Clemson on Dec. 31 in the Georgia Dome.

If the suspension stands, Wing, who averaged 44.8 yards per punt in 2012 after averaging 44.4 yards per punt in 2011, could have played his last game as a Tiger. The redshirt sophomore is eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft and, according to multiple sources in the athletic department, will likely pursue a professional career and enter the draft.

Wing is the LSU punter who famously showboated while scoring a touchdown on a fake punt against Florida in 2011, only to have the TD called back because of unsportsmanlike conduct.

Also, if memory serves, he sat out the North Texas game because of a sore leg, not a failed drug test, according to reports at the time. But given this news, who knows?
