LSU addresses Odell Beckham Jr. money situation in statement

LSU is stepping up its investigation of what would certainly be a rather bizarre NCAA scandal.

In a new statement, the university has changed its tune and admitted that evidence shows some of the money that former LSU star Odell Beckham Jr. handed out to Tiger players Monday may have been real. The school says it is cooperating with the NCAA and SEC to resolve the situation.

Initially, LSU claimed that Beckham was handing out fake money. This was undermined when quarterback Joe Burrow implied the money he received was real.

It seems unlikely that this will result in any significant consequences for LSU. As the statement notes, the players didn’t seek to be put into an awkward situation, and several of the players seem accepting cash are potentially going pro anyway. Still, it’s the NCAA, so one never can tell. At the very least, it is a significant headache, and the school will really wish Beckham had kept his money to himself.
