STATEMENTS FROM LSU ATHLETICS AND HEAD COACH ED ORGERON


BATON ROUGE – The LSU Athletic Department and head coach Ed Orgeron released statements today regarding the LSU football team not participating in a bowl game this year.

LSU Athletics statement:

“LSU has informed the NCAA and SEC that it will self-impose a one-year postseason ban on its football program for the 2020-21 bowl season, in addition to self-imposed sanctions already declared. LSU leadership made this decision after careful deliberation and review of the NCAA rules violations that have been discovered in the University’s cooperative investigation with the NCAA and IARP. This decision reflects LSU’s commitment to compliance with NCAA regulations and maintenance of institutional control. We regret the impact that this decision has on our current student-athletes, but we make it in the best interest of the football program and University. LSU will continue to cooperate with the NCAA and IARP throughout the enforcement process.”

Head coach Ed Orgeron statement:

“I respect the university’s decision to proactively address NCAA issues from the past. I share the disappointment of our student-athletes who will not be able to compete this season in a bowl game. I am especially proud of our players' dedication to the program during these unprecedented times in our country. Their pride in LSU will be the driving force as we continue to build a championship program. Geaux Tigers.”

LOL!! That's mighty gracious of you. I mean you were not going to a good bowl anyway if at all. That's hilarious!! I think there is a lot more in store for you than you banning yourself from a bowl game. You have a booster paying someone for a non show job. Not to mention all the rapes and sexual charges that LSU failed to investigate. It's called loss of institutional control. Ask USC.

It’s been a bad year as far as record, sanctions, bad publicity, players leaving in the draft, opt outs, transfers, dismissals, and overall immediate future outlook. Orgeron earned 1 mulligan. Next year I’m expecting 7-5, then 2022 9-4, 2023 is 9-4 or 10-3, and Orgeron is on as hot of a seat you can be on and then in 2024 we are a True Contrnder again... top 5. But it’s gonna be a little bit of a journey to get there though.

I can see now why everyone is opting out! They know this is a bigger problem than a 3-7 season! Ed and his blonde hooker needs to go!

Who would want a 3 win football team for a bowl anyways? But just think how many more players could opt out before the bowl was played.
