If you want to know what’s really important in Louisiana, just check out the front pages of newspapers across the state.  There was a lot going on this past week, such as the presidential debate, the U.S. Senate race, climbing crime rates in several Louisiana cities, and the heightened rhetoric over deteriorating race relations from Shreveport to Baton Rouge.  But the lead story that dominated all news outlets across the state was all about the firing of a football coach.

Is the LSU a Tiger, or a quitter?

With a new governor about to take over the reins of state, LSU and other Louisiana colleges are making a full court press for more funding. They have a good argument to make.  But what do taxpayers get in return?  Have universities like LSU made their case for what they are presently doing with the money they have been receiving up until now?

Huey Long was the best friend and supporter LSU ever had.  He was called the father of the modern LSU by the Virginia Quarterly Review in commenting: “Huey stroked LSU as if he had been coddling a newborn pet elephant.  During fiscal stringency in all other American states, Huey force-fed LSU with increasing appropriations.“  The Kingfish made no bones about his long-term goals for the state’s flagship university.  “LSU’s going to be the Harvard of the South.”
