Even though it won't happen that doomsday article does its job and I'm sure other coaches would just "want the prospects to be informed of all possibilities in order to make the best decision for themselves and their families."


He's playing hard ball. I can't blame him. I would not want to be at the helm when this is going down.

82% cut from 13%, brings it down to 2%

It is fear mongering at low level. I am surprised Alexander has made some of these comments.

Apparently he is try to whip up the passion fans have for LSU athletics and using it to exert political pressure.

Agreed, he's going there. Call it whatever you want. I can't fault him for it.

Jindal is an absolute joke and he's embarrassing himself and the state with his intentions to run for President. This is what happens when one party takes over both the Legislative and Executive branches of government.

Alexander says the state funding cuts will cause an 82% budget reduction, but later says we are only 13% funded by the state. If the state is only funding 13%, how could any cut in state appropriations cause an 82% budget reduction?



I think someone in the article got some wording wrong. It definitely read like that.

Someone pointed out in the other thread that it could be 82% of the states funding which is like 10.6% actual reduction of the overall budget.

The wording may either be accidental or intentional for fear purposes to spark some public outcry on funding

This is what happens when your constitution limits what can actually be cut from the budget to almost nothing but higher education. Couple that with the governor cutting revenues and you're looking at a major hit for higher ed.

It's only going to get worse, much worse, if the price of oil stays low. Also, we can thank the Long family for screwing the future of Louisiana by giving away the oil reserves.

Agreed.

No, this is what happens when a party whose entire platform is "anti-government" is elected to run the government. Pat yourselves on the back, right-wingers.

That's not what happened, but you left-wingers can keep selling half-truths and outright lies.

LSU would not lose a game next year so every coach would not be fired or put in the hot seat. Could be the quietest time on the Rant.

It's far deeper than that. This has been a disaster waiting to happen for decades, and I'm not a Jindal fan.

If you were a student at LSU, wouldn't you freak out at that fact or that there is a possibility 2000-3000 classes can be cut, which will make it a lot tougher to graduate because classes will be scarce.

The university is in real trouble if half of these artitles are true. Schools can not keep their doors open without state funding. Period.



The proposed budget cuts are real, but the worst case scenarios that these articles keep floating are not. LSU is just trying to drum up public support by using scare tactics to keep Jindal's budget from passing. Even if the worst case scenario did happen they would close all the satellite campuses first.

The university would also go private before it shut down?
