“LSU has appealed Clark’s ruling.”

The rug, she is getting harder to sweep under.

After a nearly five-month battle, an East Baton Rouge Parish District Court judge fined Louisiana State University and ordered the school to give USA TODAY an unredacted copy of a 2016 police report that names former star running back Derrius Guice.

LSU “was unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious in its refusal and delay and the redacted manner in which the documents were produced,” Judge Janice Clark wrote in her Dec. 29 ruling.

Clark further ordered LSU to pay $10,000 for USA TODAY’s attorney fees and an additional $6,200 in civil penalties — $100 for each of the 62 business days between the request date and the trial date, Nov. 23.

Assuming this gets to the messy ending most anticipate, does anyone expect Mark Emmert to step in and hammer the school?  I don’t, but after Penn State, he deserves whatever screaming will come his way about it.

  1. How dumb was that? The LSU campus police were absolutely stupid to do that. Whoever is the university’s general counsel/chief compliance officer should have been fired for buying off on that.

    I suspect that young Mr. Gilbert is about to look awfully smart, just entering the portal yesterday.

    This has the potential to be Baylor all over again.

    The money appears to be chump change. So delaying seems to be working for LSU.

    Were the NCAA penalties on Penn State legit? No. Should the NCAA have a regulatory process to punish schools for off-the-field stuff like what’s happened at PSU, Baylor, etc? Damn right they should.

    Man, who has the popcorn ? I was about to say this is getting good (and I’m sure most of you would know how I meant it), but there is nothing good about what they are accused of.

    Drinking, drugs, bar fights, under age drinking, even a DUI, kids gonna be kids. We all dabbled in some of the above things when we were younger. Rape? Nah dog, the s—t ends right there. And a multi-pronged coverup? Unforgivable…..
