"Being United Generates Attitude," not that it matters.
What is "BUGA Nation" supposed to mean anyway? Butt UGy Athlete?
At least Malzahn now knows why he didn't get his shirt.
I would be shocked if this happened, but we can only hope. http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/lsu-football/tigers-president-budget-threat/Last month, Governor John Bel Edwards gave an address to the state of Louisiana on the government’s budgetary issues.In that speech, he brought up the possibility of college football being impacted by public universities closing their doors due to lack of funding.Many considered that to be political posturing or perhaps an attempt to get folks that love college football to pay attention to the seriousness of the situation.But according to what LSU President F. King Alexander told the Baton Rogue Press Club on Monday afternoon, the threat to the Tigers’ 2016 football season is seemingly very real.The Advocate’s Rebekah Allen was there to report Alexander’s statements.Much of the original concern about the impact this budgetary issue could have on the football program was not around spending cuts that would directly harm the football program, which is profitable on its own.Rather, it was that the Baton Rogue campus could be forced to shut down before the end of a semester, leaving the school unable to issue grades that would keep football players eligible to play via NCAA rules.Here’s an excerpt of Allen’s story:“I know a lot of people will say, ‘Well, that’s not going to happen,’” Alexander said referring to the prospect of LSU football being hurt. “Well, that will happen if we don’t have summer school. We’ll only have half of our football team eligible.”The recent theme of using football to garner attention for worst-case scenarios to higher education has been widely criticized by many legislators who have stated that the rhetoric is either unrealistic or that it minimizes the importance of cuts to academics.“It’s not us saying that,” Alexander said. “It’s the NCAA telling us that — that student athletes have to be eligible to play. And yes, classes and sports go together. They’re student athletes, you can’t have one without the other.”According to the report, Louisiana is trying to reconcile a $900 million mid-year budget shortfall, and the state’s government is about 30 percent of the way through it with 10 days left in the session.
Don't waste your time with the mouth breathers.
He's "reported" to be a former tennis coach and associated AD? Wouldn't that be pretty easy to fact-check and just state?
It keeps getting better. Louisiana protecting its cash cow.http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/lsu-football/louisiana-bill-restricted-travel/Louisiana is trying to fight its way through a state budget crisis, which has threatened the viability of all college athletics in the state due mostly to the possibility of class cancellations creating ineligible student-athletes.Enter Louisiana House Bill No. 971, presented by Rep. Steve Carter.The proposed bill would limit the travel to regular-season athletic competitions to 375 miles for schools not named LSU.Rather than try to explain what the proposed bill is trying to accomplish, I’ll instead let you read an excerpt of the abstract yourself:Prohibits athletic programs at public postsecondary education institutions that receive state general fund monies from traveling more than 375 miles for athletic competitions. Excludes LSU institutions and all football and basketball programs. Proposed law requires the boards of supervisors of Southern University, the University of La. System, and the Community and Technical Colleges to develop and implement policies to prohibit athletic programs from traveling more than 375 miles to compete in athletic competitions. Provides that proposed law does not apply to: (1) Football or basketball programs. (2) A playoff or championship competition. (3) An athletic competition hosted by an opposing school that pays all travel and associated costs for the La. team.This would allow LSU to continue to conduct its business in the SEC as usual, in all sports.And while it is nice that it would allow non-LSU football programs to continue to play as scheduled, it is worth noting that such restrictions to other sports would put these school’s conference affiliations in serious jeopardy.Schools like UL-Lafayette, UL-Monroe and Louisiana Tech, to name a few, would have a serious gripe about the LSU exemption if this proposed bill were put into law.It is also worth noting that Carter, the author of the bill, is reported to be a former tennis coach and assistant athletics director at LSU.
