It seems that LSU is now pivoting in its stance about what really happened on the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium after Monday’s national championship game was over.
LSU squared off against Clemson in the big game, and destroyed its opponent, 42-25. A number of stars on the team appear to be first-round draft picks, with quarterback Joe Burrow at the top of the list, as he’s the surefire No. 1 overall pick.
There’s been a lot of commotion about what happened on the field after the game, as Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was seen handing out cash to players.
LSU initially stated that it was a joke, and that the bills were “fake.” However, the university switched its stance on Wednesday, admitting it was real money, in this statement.
It will be interesting to see how the NCAA and NFL handle this issue.
