    Heard this on the radio this morning...

    LSU men's football and basketball are under NCAA investigation for academic reasons, and recruiting ...

    That would make sense... I swear that the guy on the radio said Louisiana State University, not University of Louisiana.... but I believe you

    Someone in Natchez might prefer it to be their hated SEC rivals as opposed to a Sun Belt team nobody cares about.

    In other news, locoguano could be seen crying outside his apartment on Chimes St.... :grin:

    Sort of "tounge in cheek", but then again...I'm sort of serious when I say: I'm not surprised UL-Lafeyette is under investigation for players that weren't academically qualified (yet played), nor am I surprised that they held practices outside of the NCAA rules....When you struggle for as long as they have, any time you are close to gaining SOME sort of positive momentum, you find yourself grasping at anything to get you back to some sort of respect.

    Yeah! The NCAA ought to have some sort of "if you really suck, you can cheat a little" rule.:hihi:

    They should draft up a "Mercy Clause" and submit it to the NCAA. :lol:

    I personally witnessed illegal practices by the basketball team... worked in the building they practiced in... not suprising.. UL usually has a decent basketball team, meaning they get recruits that no other school would take (they can play, but they can't think). Don't know about football though. I've talked to Bustle many times and he always seemed like a straight shooter, but you never know...
