Ex-Giants Thread: Is OBJ trying to get LSU in trouble?

Eric from BBI : Admin : 1/14/2020 8:49 am
Seriously, what is going through his mind doing this?


Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but isnít that a violation of NCAA rules? - ( New Window )

I think that OBJ  
BobsYourUncle : 1/14/2020 9:51 am : link
Is just incredibly immature, and has such a need to be liked/make an impression... and that he incapable of understanding tact or consequences to actions.

His Id is master to his Ego.
Isn't that called scholarship money?  
giantsfan227B : 1/14/2020 9:53 am : link
Maybe he is representing LSU making their latest installment payment for books and study material.
Lebron did the same thing for Ohio State

though the implications may be different cause Lebron has no association with the school.

I read each team has a "bowl game gift allowance" for the players. that is, they can give each player playing in the bowl game some kind of gift. and that the headphones have to count against that allowance.
It has nothing to do with...  
Capt. Don : 1/14/2020 10:01 am : link
"What is the NCAA going to do?"

And more to do with, "what is Odell's deal?"

If he wanted to give a college kid a few hundred dollars he couldve done it without the cameras. This was about Odell being on stage - like he always needs to be.

It is hard to come across selfish when you are giving away hundreds of dollars - but somehow, Odell did it.

I feel sorry for him actually - it must be emotionally exhausting for him to constantly feel the need to be in the spotlight.
Kids have gotten in trouble with the NCAA  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 1/14/2020 10:04 am : link
for having access to a hose to wash their car that was unavailable to the general student population. I personally think the NCAA is completely corrupt and biased and unfair to the kids, but paying a kid after a game on the sidelines is no doubt a violation of something. The school allowed him on the sidelines, so they have some responsibility for his actions.

One of my best friends was a D1 coach and my daughter is a D3 athlete and the restrictions and surveillance on their actions is pretty incredible. Compliance coordinators, audits etc. Again, I personally think the NCAA is completely corrupt and biased and unfair to the kids, but it was really stupid on his part.

Socialism would be if the players who make the NCAA millions got paid for their efforts so they didn't have to accept charity.


No, you're both wrong. Socialism would be if the government took that money from OBJ, NCAA and everyone else, took a high percentage cut, and redistributed a pittance among everyone else, and the players and everyone else would still be looking for charity, only there would be much fewer charities.

BTW, once again you guys are so naive to think these guys at major college programs aren't getting paid. They are getting money. It's just under the mattress, they are way more careful now about not having a trail. I have heard things.

and that's self-reporting something that nobody outside of bumfuck Lewisburg, PA would ever have known.

Is your definition of socialism a millionaire handing out a few hundred dollars in an obvious attempt to curry favor with impressionable young men while at the same time trying to steal the spotlight from them?
LSU isn't stupid, they probably had the players give the money back.  
Mad Mike : 1/14/2020 10:10 am : link
If not, it is absolutely a violation (especially since the other kid isn't a prospect who's going to go pro early). It may be a minor one, but this is the ncaa, and no violation is too minor for them to make a big deal of.
I don't think Beckham

We're talking about today at major college programs, not the Roaring 20's at Bumfuck Technical & Agricultural College.

In any case NOT a classy move by OBJ.  
since1925 : 1/14/2020 10:34 am : link
Doesn't this send a message to college recruits that come to LSU and get paid? It is against the spirit of the rules if not actually against the rules. It implies play for pay.

OBJ getting attention in all the wrong ways.

Bucknell..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 1/14/2020 10:35 am : link
had to self-report things to get a letter from the NCAA.

PSU could have institutionally supported molesting of kids and not get any warning......

OK - that might be a low blow. Ohh. bad pun...
Another desperate ďLook at me!Ē moment from OBJ.

No, not really. Paying taxes isn't socialism, even if those taxes sometimes are used to pay for social programs. If you want to use the term socialism that broadly, sure I guess. But I'm sure you also know that we are talking about actual socialism enacted on a much larger federal scale in which the means of production are under federal control.

Yep. This is SEC football, home to the NCAA's cash cow, and the NCAA has absolutely no interest in looking into anything (ask Cam Newton). The players are already getting compensated (and anyone who thinks its limited to their scholarship is incredibly naive). Nothing to see here.
An LSU official said it was fake money.
