LSU prez: Budget crisis a legit threat to football due to player eligibility - Robby Kalland, CBS Sports

LSU President F. King Alexander reiterated Tuesday that the state's severe budget crisis is indeed a legitimate threat to the LSU football season. In February, Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards said that if new taxes weren't implemented to increase revenue and budget cuts were made, the state's university system could shut down before summer semester, which would mean no classes and therefore have major implications for LSU's football season. Alexander said that people brushing it off as an empty threat to push lawmakers into acting were wrong. “I know a lot of people will say, ‘Well, that's not going to happen,'” Alexander said about the prospect of LSU football being hurt, per The Advocate. “Well, that will happen if we don't have summer school. We'll only have half of our football team eligible.”
