    Agree. Your nephews are in the minority. Good on them.

    And college baseball only allows about 11 1/2 scholarships any nobody gets a full ride unless they are a superstar like Alex Bregman or Aaron Nola. Pell Grants to players give LSU an additional over teams from states that don't have them.

    Louisiana has too many community colleges. There is a large one in Baton Rouge but I have seen a few in or near small towns within easy driving range of here. The town of Gonzales is only about 25 miles away yet they have a community college.

    There are too many state universities too. 10 in a state with the population of Louisiana is too many. Why not consolidate a few of them and provide a better education for students while spending the same amount or less money.

    Dude....the scholarship limit destroyed USC baseball. Let's say a talented kid in SoCal gets a partial offer from both USC and ucla. ucla is roughly $36k for the year to attend. USC is $71k. The EFC under that scenario for USC would be ridiculous. There's a reason why they have a good baseball program now....as do Fullerton, Irvine, and a bunch of other CA state schools. Stanford has been good but not great however their endowment is off the charts.

    Vandy figured it out. You can effectively have a bunch of bullshit “educational” scholarships baseball players can get.

    Not many of the Vandy players pay much, if any.

    Vandy, like others, participates in scholarship stacking. USC doesn't. And I thought LSU had a program where kids from La who maintain a certain GPA and stay home going to LSU get a free ride.

    Most every team that has been in the hunt for the last decade has something.
