Facing a budget crisis, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards says higher education in the state could be compromised. And that includes the possibility of college athletics in Louisiana being canceled.

In a statewide televised address Thursday, Edwards said campuses could run out of money and be forced to shut down in April, highlighting the LSU football team as one program that could be lost as a result of massive cuts to higher education funding.

This led to a line that you've no doubt read or heard in some form or fashion: "That means you can say farewell to college football next fall." While that statement is certainly describing the outcome of the worst case scenario for the state budget, it is in no way incorrect. If LSU is forced to close prior to the completion of the spring semester, all students would receive an "Incomplete" grade for the period. By NCAA rules, student athletes receiving an Incomplete grade are not eligible to participate in competition. That means that all players, in all sports, at all public universities in the state of Louisiana would be ineligible to participate.
