All in

The walls, they keep tumbling.

LSU athletics and Caesars Sportsbook on Friday announced a multi-year partnership, creating the first deal between a Southeastern Conference school and a sports betting company.

… Caesars Sportsbook will receive naming rights for the new Caesars Sportsbook Skyline Club at Tiger Stadium, signage throughout Tiger Stadium beginning on Saturday for LSU’s game against Central Michigan, plus additional signage at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, Alex Box Stadium and on the LSU Sports Mobile App.

“LSU has always taken pride in providing fans with unique, innovative, and world-class experiences, and our new partnership with Caesars Entertainment will do just that,” said LSU athletic director Scott Woodward in a written statement. “We share a clear vision of how athletics and entertainment can come together to enhance the fan experience and we are excited to join with Caesars to make that vision a reality.”

I will give Woodward credit for not invoking the kids there.  But there’s only so far he could go, I guess.

The announcement says the deal focuses on “unique alumni and fan engagement opportunities while expanding responsible sports gaming and education.”

Yes, because the first thing you think of when you hear the phrase “responsible sports gaming” is education.  Way to go, LSU.

    And the a-holes who run the Georgia Athletic Department STILL won’t let us buy beer inside Sanford Stadium or at the Steg or Foley Field, etc.

    So whatever is left of the NCAA is just going to swallow the gambling rules? I wonder when the Crap Tables go into the suites.

    I try to convince myself by saying that Great Britain maintains a nice ‘amateur’ sporting culture with a betting shop on every street corner, but I can’t make the analogy work.

    To be honest the game has always been a place to sober up a little. I don’t normally need more encouragement to drink. If I need to take it to 11 there’s always a flask for that.

    It was just a matter of time. Vegas will be coming hard very soon. Wonder which team will have pornhub patches on their jerseys next year.

    Hell yeah! When will the State of Georgia get on the train and let us bet? Tired of having to leave the state to visit a book.

  12. The widespread infiltration of gambling into sports is probably the #1 thing that has turned me off spending a single dollar on anything sports related the last year or two.

    Gambling utterly destroys lives and families. It has ZERO redeeming value. I do not support it being banned or made illegal, but it should never be given any legitimacy nor should any sports org work with it directly.

    I also hate how it has crept into sports entertainment media also. Barf.
