    I haven't read enough about this to have a fully informed opinion, but I find it hard to believe.

    How to get a bill passed in LA? tell the voters there won't be college football unless the legislature votes yes. Guaranteed to succeed.

    I would like to see the bill purposely not passed to call his bluff. I hate politicians like that.

    Isn't it about the school running.out of funds and not the football program? He's saying if the bill doesn't pass the school will be shut down mid semester, thus leaving the athletes with incomplete grades. That would mean next fall the entire team would be ineligible due to grades...

    Actually you're pretty close. The athletic department is donating $36 million to academics over the next 5 years.

    Think about this statement. Where are America's priorities in the year 2016?
