But he still didn’t address how they are going to keep all 85 current non NFL draft able players AND still recruit a 2021 class. That is the conundrum that I’m wondering about. LSU probably has what about 12 players right now that the NFL wants? So I guess LSU will recruit 12 players for the 2021 class?

So two people just downvote my question but add nothing to the conversation? They bring nothing to the table? Larry can you find out the answer? I’m too incompetent to do it myself.

I didn’t interpret this move to mean no fall football. It actually gives me hope that they plan to move forward. They just can’t been seen as using a scholarship as leverage to get these kids to play. The University needs to be able to say that the players made a personal choice to play, and honestly, that’s the way it should be.

It's a year to year scholy. If they don't want to play, somebody will.
