LSU football program could be shut down this fall, Louisiana governor says

LSU football program could be shut down this fall, Louisiana governor says

The governor of Louisiana said he wasn't trying to use scare tactics during his televised address Thursday night, but you can bet LSU football fans were shaking in their shoes afterward.

Gov. John Bel Edwards told his statewide TV audience that there will be massive budget cuts if his proposed tax increases are not approved by legislators. And one of the many casualties would be his constituents' beloved Tigers.

"Without legislators approving new revenue this special session, some campuses will be forced to declare financial bankruptcy, which would include massive layoffs and the cancellation of classes," Edwards said.
