Sports Illustrated, in this free article, is reporting that LSU Football Self-Imposes Penalties, Bans Odell Beckham Jr. from Facilities for Two Year.
LSU is self-imposing penalties for rules violations and hoping the NCAA doesn’t levy more.
The school is docking itself eight football scholarships over a two-year period and reducing recruiting visits, evaluations and communication after a nearly two-year investigation uncovered booster payments to the father of a football player, sources tell Sports Illustrated. The school is banning from its facilities for two years ex-LSU receiver and current NFL star Odell Beckham Jr., who distributed $2,000 worth of $100 bills during a wild scene that unfolded on the field following LSU’s win over Clemson in the national championship game in the New Orleans Superdome.
We'll have to wait and see if there is anything more brought on by the NCAA. Part of me feels like this shouldn't be a big deal and should be legal. The other part of me knows that if a former OSU player did this, Ohio State would get the ban hammer! What do you all think?
