When william tate was named as the new president he Had headed over from the university of south carolina. But as they say hold on a second We may not be done with this story yet.

Thanks for being here. it's It's great to have you on the show again. Good afternoon afternoon. So i think everyone was really excited last week. It looked like after a A winter of discontent. Maybe lsu had gotten it right With the hiring So that was last week though. And as you know living in baton rouge in louisiana later as a year ago when when you're watching the match nations of political worlds unfold. Let's pick up the story From that moment. And then we switch over to south carolina where we talked about The issues with bob kesling earlier with josh kendall is does does lsu avenue does it dissolves. You have a president or is he going to go back to south carolina. Well that's a great question. So the chairman of lsu's board of supervisors says that as of yesterday. He spoke to william tate. Who is the the south carolina. Provos who president and Lsu's board chairman says that provost tate assured him yesterday that he is committed to lsu and that he will be coming to lsu. And he's supposed to start. I believe july first or july second but we also have now that over the past couple of days. South carolina has made a pretty strong play to keep him and that might not be over yet. they william has said he coming to lsu and last week when they announced him as president he put on a purple and gold. Tie and everything. The contract hasn't been finalized. He hasn't signed his name on anything. And there. I think there's still potential for for this to keep playing out. His food called in the world of legal and agent dealings great leverage and i have no earthly idea as Son of us do what what is going on in colombia but their in a desperate situation. They'd almost looks like we're talking about. Lsu doesn't it. yeah it's very interesting because they are also in the middle of a sexual assault scandal that has rocked campus that has led to protests from students but has really upset a lot of people and lsu of course is still reeling from their their own sexual assault scandal and the the repercussions of that continue to play out on a day to day basis. So i think that dr tate will find himself in familiar territory at lsu. It was kinda funny yesterday when when all this news coming out there were some students south carolina saying you know why would he want to stay here when there's this whole firestorm of sexual assault. I don't think that by coming to. Lsu hell escape any of that. Let's so let's talk about that It's been relatively quiet at least in terms of headlines. But this is a story the un. Your colleague had been working on for some time. Where are we. So we've now reached the point where lsu has had to federal lawsuits filed against the university. One is They're trying to make it a class action lawsuit a group of women who say that they were assaulted on campus They have filed a federal title. Nine off against the university the other is an lsu athletic department employees who says that she tried to report sexual harassment and she was retaliated against for doing so. She has filed her own Federal suit against the university. Lsu remains under federal Department of education investigation of far as their crime reporting goes under the cleary act and as far as how they've handled title nine issues. So there's there's a lot to clean up here But lsu has also committed to spending one million dollars to fund their title nine off at their hiring people to to do title nine where they've created a few new systems and offices and things like that so we've seen a few changes a few. Let's talk about some of the recent moves on that campus. And some the presidential decision as it stands is significant. The university also hired kill mulkey from from baylor a school. That's had its own serious issues. And certainly her credentials are extraordinary with multiple national championships. Did you do see any connection with that. And what is going on just in terms of bringing someone in who at least Offers some positive. That's a great question. I think no doubt that there has been hope from lsu. That i'm making this kind of powerhouse. Higher of kim mulkey they are doing some things to to excite the fan base to make people you know have some safe and the university again and And it's you know tidal nine has these two aspects of it one of which is that women deserve the same as that and so from that standpoint her higher. It is a real blockbuster because she will out earn many of the man on. lsu's coaching staff In in lots of other sports but at the same time the higher calms while the lsu athletic department has been saying that. They're preparing for an eighty million dollar budget cut. The tiger athletic foundation does that they can no longer afford. To fund academic scholarships and and kim mulkey has said some Relatively controversial things about title nine at baylor during her time there..
