LSU says money Odell Beckham gave to players was fake

LSU says money Odell Beckham gave to players was fake

He played in the Tigers' latest National Championship appearance prior to Monday, when LSU fell to Alabama, 21-0, in the 2011 National Championship game.

It turns out that his idea of fun could be a very big problem for his beloved university.

An LSU athletic official told The Advocate that the money that Beckham was handing out wasn't real and was instead prop money. Information and footage reviewed since shows apparent cash may have also been given to LSU student-athletes.

Videos posted on social media showed Beckham placing money in the hand of LSU receiver Justin Jefferson and celebrating with players in LSU's locker room in the Superdome.

"We are aware of the situation regarding Odell Beckham Jr. interacting with LSU student-athletes and others unaffiliated with the team following the championship game Monday night", the team said in a prepared statement.

Health experts believe the increased number of deaths has to do with the type of Influenza that is circulating. Influenza B is the predominant strain circulating this season and is associated with 73 percent of cases.

"I'm not a student-athlete anymore, so I can say yeah", Burrow said on the episode.

LSU Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow said NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. gave him real cash following the team's win in the College Football Playoff championship game, days after the school said the money Beckham was seen giving out to players after the game was fake.

LSU says it is working with the players, the NCAA and the Southeastern Conference "to rectify the situation".

Anything additional - particularly cash in hand - is a clear violation of NCAA rules and could lead to a world of trouble for both Beckham and LSU. And now, a video hit Twitter showing Beckham confronting - and evidently spanking - an officer in the locker room.
