Interesting that he chose this season to do this with it being a huge campaign moment right now for him. I don’t remember any other appearances during the last few seasons. I’m SURE it’s just a coincidence and he’s not using LSU football at all just to promote himself.

Listen, no matter what side I’m on I can still call it fairly. He has been ‘around’ the LSU football team over several of the past few seasons. Try Google.

Does the team know he threatened to shut them down? That asshat can suck rat poison

Shutdown LSU football and end TOPS were 2 ‘threats’ right out of the gate. I haven’t forgotten.

Absolutely false. He never threatened to shut the football team down. He said LSU could lose accreditation if any more cuts were made to LSU's funding. If the school lost accreditation none of the football players would be eligible to play. He never once threatened to shut down LSU football.

Hopefully he’s giving them a farewell address

Isn’t Louisiana’s budget in the green now? What were we in debt before he became gov?
Reply11 months
Uh, we were over taxed thanks to that POS, edwards, threatening in order to get taxes raised. That’s not a budget surplus. That’s theft in the form over overtaxation of the working citizens of Louisiana.

Funny how he does everything right before his re-election! Acting like he cares about this team, and giving teachers a long overdue pay raise... it’s all a big smoke screen!
Reply11 months
It really wasn’t even a pay raise. The state sent money to each school district yearly to distribute bonuses to the teachers. He did away with that and just gave them a $1000 per year raise, which was about $1500 less than they were getting with their bonus. So technically he didn’t really give anyone a raise. He cut their pay.

The man is a liar...he's doing what every other Democrat resorts to by bringing out the race card comparing Rispone and Trump to David Duke, and should be ashamed of himself for stooping to those depths. Unfortunately it keeps working with a certain sector of people.

A sector of people the Republicans will NEVER win over, so why even attempt.

"Check out what he had to say." No thank you.

Funny how just 4 yrs ago he was publicly saying that he may have to do away with LSU Football. JBE is a clown.
Reply11 months
JBE knows President Trump is going to be at the game so he wants to get a little spotlight on himself as well. If there wasn't an election JBE wouldn't even show his face at a practice. Scumbag.

Wasn’t this guy trying to end LSU football when he came into office?
Reply11 months
what I immediately thought. Not really, but he was using LSU Football as leverage politically which was BS.

Shouldn't allow state politics to get involved in football, especially college football @ LSU!
