Isn’t Burrow and others still on athletic scholarships?
Doesn't matter for those whose careers are finished. The minute the final gun sounded Burrow could do what he wanted. He could sign with an agent that night and get a suitcase full of money on national TV.

After we got knocked out of the NCAA in 1993, the 5 graduating guys from my class who were done didn't have to go with the rest of us (I'd redshirted so I still had another year) to our team activity that night. Some of the parents took them out drinking in Orlando. They were no longer under any coach's rules.

To me the craziest thing is that by NCAA rule, even though basketball players have more than half of their senior second semester during season, they still only need to have one class (4 hours) in that final semester to be eligible. My senior year (5th year, so I had all my prerequisites done) second semester all I had was a 4-hour independent study with my professor. Perfectly legal.

You don't have to be a senior to just take one class (and not even go to it), aka the Ben Simmons rule...

Well... True. But apparently LSU isn't really bound by any of the rules anyway.

The NCAA will play the bad guy and tell Beckham to stay away, which after Monday is just what LSU wants. They won't do anything else.
Do they want that? Sure, Beckham appears to be a total clown, but I'm guessing that played pretty well with recruits.
what won’t play well is the de facto OC and career saving DC are both gone. So is their once in a lifetime QB and about a dozen underclassmen have declared for the draft.

That's why you have to supplement with straight cash from the famous alum.

Lspuke has lost two coaches, and nine players since Monday. Just heard the mascot took the job at Memphis.

#4 here*, although to be fair this was done before Brady and Aranda left.

Cincinnati and Memphis come in at #16 and #15 respectively.


*Warning - slide show
