You have yet to post a single link supporting your claim of 50% failure rate for LSU freshmen.

Cedric Glover is a piece of crap, corrupt career politician. He's just pissed he couldn't line his own pockets on either of these ventures.

re: [UPDATE] F'ing Nerd State Rep. Wants to Ban Alcohol Licensing by State Universities
quote:

It was certainly disappointing to see LSU President Dr. King Alexander respond in such a personal and petty way regarding House Bill 610, my bill that would prohibit colleges and universities from authorizing an “official” alcoholic beverage.

LSU and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette have signed such contracts and local breweries market beers as the official brews of the universities.

Alexander said in a news story about my bill in The Advocate: “It’s nonsense. Glover likes to throw stones. He’s never been a fan of LSU.”

Like just about all Louisianans, I love LSU and all of our other colleges as well.

But HB 610 isn't just about our colleges. It’s about our people and especially our children. Of all the collective negatives we possess as a state, the one we can least afford to continue mindlessly ushering forward is our inclination to overindulge in alcohol.

It affects and magnifies all of the others. From our nation-leading homicide, HIV and hypertension levels to our shameful rates for violence against women, alcohol abuse is a common denominator.

To be clear, there is just about no aspect of my life in which I am a teetotaler. HB 610 is no effort at holier than thou-ism. I just happen to believe we can do and be better than college-branded beer.

In his attempt to justify college-branded and sanctioned beer, Alexander ignores all of the college student specific data regarding underage consumption, binge drinking, alcohol fueled sexual and physical assaults, and instead argues that Budweiser and other major brands have been using purple and gold in their advertising for years without LSU ever receiving any financial benefit. If there was ever a statement from a college president that strikes a bitter and ironic chord with his students, then this should be it.

LSU and other colleges have been and continue to rake in billions of dollars from the blood, sweat, broken bones, and dreams of youngsters who are not even old enough to legally buy beer. The universities’ return is much higher than the tuition, room and board invested through scholarships. Yet these same young people cannot legally earn a single red cent from the tickets, television, tailgating and all the purple and gold paraphernalia that bears their names.

If logic leads Dr. Alexander to believe that LSU is currently being exploited and taken advantage of by the beer companies, then he should be honest enough to admit that colleges are doing the same thing to the underage youngsters who give their brands such high value and exposure in the first place, and then fight to justly compensate them in the same way he wants to cash in now.

A fifteen percent share of all the revenue generated from college sports that’s split amongst those who actually provide the sweat equity that makes it all possible sounds like the start of a fair deal. So if the king of LSU wants his cut of the beer money, let's make sure the kids get theirs, too.

Rep. Cedric Glover, D-Shreveport

What a moron. A nobody state rep has no business wading into the muck of the pay-to-play college athletic argument.

I would wager that his constituents do not care about this issue.

F%#king Alexander can't do anything about that anyway. That's an NCAA issue and they have shown they are willing to die on that hill.

What? I thought this was about microbrews not sports.

- You know that coaching staff that's provided for those students? That costs a ton of money
- What about those elite facilities they get to use? That costs a pretty penny
- And the venue afforded to these players to showcase their abilities in front of millions of people around the globe? Not free
- How about that state of the art weight room they get to use daily? That wasn't free
- The new nutrition center that was just built? Paid for by tickets and TV rights
- Top of the line health benefits from renowned doctors? Somebody's paying that bill

All of this on top of tuition, room/board and meals.

Don't tell me these college athletes are compensated while they're in school. If they have it so bad, then they can hire their own private coaches, join a gym and hold workouts in their backyard. And we can see what that gets them.

First of all, it's not LSU's (or F King Alexander) decision not to pay the student athletes. They get a full scholarship, housing, and meal plan at the state university. That's compensation enough. Don't like it? Don't play or accept this fair compensation. No one's forcing you to play college football.

Secondly, I'm pretty sure it isn't legal to sell paraphernalia that "bears their name" while in college. And if they make it to professionally, they do get compensated for this.

Child please

His argument was bad enough to begin with, so now he's trying to make it about being "unfair to the athletes who won't see any revenue."

Guy is a hack just trying to get attention.

frick LSU and F.King for making the NCAA have rules about paying athletes. Man. If you wanna argue something, stick to that something. He placed blame on one man for the entire NCAA. That's going to win you battles...
