No. That is not a typo. As a Louisiana native, I feel like I'm Picard being addressed by the Borg Queen: "You will be assimilated."

"... a release from the university said. "Specifically, LSU’s Fierce for the Future Campaign goals, totaling $1.5 billion, are $724 million in support of academics on the flagship campus; $27 million in support of alumni engagement on the flagship campus; $603 million in support of athletics on the flagship campus..."


You can't make this stuff up.

Big contract buyouts on the horizon for Orgeron and Manieri. Won't be cheap.

Why would they buyout Mainieri? They were just in the CWS in 2017 and are regular contenders.

Nice of them to make the academic side nominally more than athletics. It's that extra touch that really separates them.

Yeah, I read that and thought "as long as the academic number is larger than the athletic one, the only people who will even notice the sports expenditure are haters like us."

If Will Wade costs the AD his job, the new AD will be cleaning house at the behest of the mob that is the LSU fan base. Orgeron isn't beating Alabama any time soon and those stupids read that number one preseason in baseball stuff and ate it with a spoon.
