I would be shocked if this happened, but we can only hope. :evil:

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.

The $900M budget shortfall is not a fix-it-and-all-is-well situation.  The next year's budget shortfall is $2B.  This is going to get interesting.

Things are so bad in Red Stick, that even the band director is under investigation.

http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/lsu-football/band-director-leave-of-absence/

The Golden Band from Tigerland’s leadership is very much in question at the moment.

According to a report from The Advocate, LSU band director Roy King was put on administrative leave Wednesday amid an investigation by the university’s human resources.

LSU Spokesman Ernie Ballard offered a statement on behalf of LSU regarding marching band director Roy King.

“Normally, we would not comment on personnel matters but as his counsel has made public, he is on administrative leave. However, this is not as a result of any alleged dispute between Tiger Band and the School of Music. As of this time, this matter is ongoing and the university plans to not comment further.”

King reportedly received the news during a meeting with the human resources department and members of LSU’s internal auditing.

The band director’s attorney, Jill Kraft, granted the newspaper an interview which prompted a public acknowledgement of the situation from the university on Wednesday afternoon.

Kraft claims that King has been under investigation for more than three months in what she termed to be a “travesty” and a “witch hunt.”

The subject matter of the investigation isn’t clear, though the attorney may have left some clues in her comments to The Advocate:

“Starting in the fall of the last school year there was an effort on part of administrators in the School of Music to get their hands on the budget for the Golden Band from Tiger Land,” Craft said. “Rightfully so, my client refused to allow that to happen and immediately after refusing to allow that to happen they opened a ridiculous investigation into him which has included pulling every email he’s ever sent over the last 18 years of his employment.”

Craft said LSU officials have taken issue with LSU Golden Girl dance team members receiving stipends or scholarships, “even though they have over the last several decades.”

Craft accused School of Music officials of saying they were working to find ways to extend Tiger Band scholarships to other music students who are not on the LSU band.

She said in meetings, administrators disparaged the quality of LSU’s band, calling them the “laughing stock of the country.” :stunned:

It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out and what the fall out may be for the university’s football game day experience this fall.

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.

So it would allow all football and basketball teams to travel...this seems like it could get into some Title IX issues.

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that states: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Too bad the other kicker went to Texass already, he could have had his job back. :notexas:

Prayers for the Nebraska and Michigan St. punters and their families.

http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/lsu-football/report-lsu-kicker-injured-car-accident-killed-two-big-ten-punters/

LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye was hospitalized from the the Wisconsin car crash that took the lives of two Big Ten punters.

Delahoussaye was in the backseat of the car, riding with Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler after leaving the Kohl’s Kicking Camp in Wales, Wis.

Earlier on Sunday, former LSU kicker Trent Domingue announced he has transferred to Texas after not having his scholarship renewed, potentially opening up the starting job for Delahoussaye.

Our thoughts are with Foltz and Sadler families as we’ll continue to watch for updates on Delahoussaye.

Update:

LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette told Ross Dellenger of the Advocate that Delahoussaye needed stitches and was treated for leg burns. He has been released from Waukesha Memorial Hospital.

More details have also emerged about the crash:

Foltz was a passenger in a car travelling westbound on Beaver Lake Road at 11:30 p.m. The car lost control on wet pavement, left the roadway and struck a tree. Speed appears to be a factor in the traffic crash, the release said.

The driver of the car was Sadler. He and Foltz were pronounced dead at the scene.

Upon hearing the news, LSU head coach Les Miles released the following statement:

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler. We grieve for them. This isn’t supposed to happen to young people who have so much to live for. We are so thankful that Colby will be able to return home to his family and friends.”
