Carter Posted February 12, 2016 Share Posted February 12, 2016 Louisiana's governor has warned, in a live television address, that a statewide budget crisis could lead to students enrolled on scholarship assistance receiving an incomplete grade due to loss of funding. More than 50% of the student body is making use of the TOPS program. Affected students would not be able to graduate and would lose their scholarship. Such a grade would render any student-athlete ineligible for competition in fall. Horrible situation if he's not exaggerating. There is a $2 billion statewide debt crisis. Seems to me that cutting off LSU in particular would be the worst thing they could allow to happen. With all the revenue LSU brings in directly with football and facilitates all around the state, particularly Baton Rouge in fall, it would be a catastrophic failure by leadership imo. https://www.seccountry.com/louisiana-state/louisiana-governor-you-can-say-farewell-to-college-football-next-fall Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
