If by "doesn't look good" means they forfeit last years title, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
Otherwise it's a slap on the wrist penalty, which is about all the NCAA is good for these days anyway.

Let's take a closer look at that.

"Teams are normally allowed to have a maximum of 85 players on scholarship per year. The penalties will not impact the team’s ability to sign the maximum of 25 newcomers a year."

So, LSU can still sign 25 players this year and next year. What they "lose" is possibly the ability to reward a walk-on with a scholarship.

And, this comment about losing "4 ships a year for the next two years" is extremely misleading. To the casual observer that would mean losing 8 ships. But, using the NCAA decoder ring, it doesn't mean that at all. They will not lose 8 ships. They will lose 4 ships, and for only two years. They can have 81 on ship in 2021 and 81 on ship in 2022. Then in 2023 they can go back to having 85 on ship.

And, when you couple that with the NCAA still not telling people how they will adjust ships next year because of the "Covid Rule" where no one loses a year of eligibility then it really will be meaningless.

Someone said it was a slap on the wrist. I maintain it is more like a sternly worded letter saying, "We'll overlook it this time, but do it again and we will think about penalizing you."

I lugh t this. It is such a lip service candy a-ed punishment. And it was done on tv and takes almost a year to "resolve". Just a joke. And a bad one at that.

This is why LSU reminds of the Florida Marlins from the 90’s. The bought their World Series Championships. I hope the one LSU bought was worth it. Looks like the NCAA could
come snooping around. That 1 NC could cost LSU a lot more than it was worth.

Will this cost Ed O his job??

If UNC can literally set up fake classes for its athletes for two frigging decades and get away with it scot free you can bet your last dollar that LSU can overcome a few guys getting paid.
