LSU has self-imposed a 2020 bowl ban.

The football program announced Wednesday night that the team wouldn’t play in a bowl this season in response to an NCAA investigation. The investigation involved boosters and alleged payments to the family of a player, according to Sports Illustrated.

The Tigers previously banned Odell Beckham Jr. from the team’s facilities for two years after his little cash stunt at the national title game. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can read the full statement in the tweet from Ross Dellenger below.

I respect the hell out of this move from LSU. The Tigers are currently 3-5, and have two games left. One against Florida and one against Ole Miss.

That means the Tigers are likely going to finish 3-7 and end up in bowl most of you have never heard of before.

Instead of doing that, the Tigers are announcing they’re just not going to play in a bowl this season! What a punishment!

This is why the SEC is such an incredible conference. The Tigers won the national title last season, got slapped by an NCAA investigation and now impose a bowl ban during a terrible season.

It’s like a guy who hasn’t spoken to a woman in a year imposing a month-long dating ban! What a laughable situation. You have to respect how brazen this is by LSU.
