    Joe Burrow says Browns' Odell Beckham Jr. handed out real cash to LSU players
    The money that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. distributed on the field after LSU's national championship victory Monday was real, Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow said in a podcast interview released Wednesday.

    "I'm not a student-athlete anymore, so I can say yeah," Burrow said on the most recent episode of Barstool Sports' "Pardon My Take."


    The university's athletic department issued a statement Wednesday saying it was aware of video showing "apparent cash" being given to players by Beckham and that it has been in contact with the NCAA and the SEC regarding the matter

    "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 LSU statement said. "Initial information suggested bills that were exchanged were novelty bills. Information and footage reviewed since shows apparent cash may have also been given to LSU student-athletes.

    "We were in contact with the NCAA and the SEC immediately upon learning of this situation in which some of our student-athletes may have been placed in a compromising position. We are working with our student-athletes, the NCAA and the SEC in order to rectify the situation."

    An LSU spokesperson on Tuesday morning had told the Baton Rouge Advocate that the money being handed out on the field by Beckham, a former LSU star, was counterfeit.

    In a now-private Twitter video that initially went viral, Beckham was filmed handing out what appeared to be real cash to LSU players in the aftermath of the Tigers' 42-25 victory against Clemson for the university's first national championship since 2007.

    After the game, LSU coach Ed Orgeron said he wasn't aware of the incident.

    "First I'm hearing about it," Orgeron told reporters in New Orleans after the game.

    If the money being doled out by Beckham was real, as Burrow said Tuesday, it would be a violation of NCAA bylaws. Cash is an example of impermissible benefits that are prohibited by the governing body.

    OBJ should've given IOU's to LSU so that the NCAA wouldn't be so PO'd.

    I’m not sure how accurate this is, but I heard on the radio the police did or were gonna arrest some players for smoking cigars because they were underage.

    What a selfish piece of shit. He knew cameras are everywhere and would definitely be on him in a celebration type area. I'm not an LSU fan or hater and I know stuff like this goes on everywhere in the NCAA but I hope this dumbass doesnt cost them their championship.

    This is not looking good. They might have to vacate the title now.

    Excusing the fact that he's a dumb ass for doing this as he obviously knows it's against the rules, it's a fucking shame this is an issue at all. It should be a nice story about a rich ass NFL player coming and making it rain on a bunch of players who just won it all after being exploited by a university and governing body who makes untold millions on crippling the bodies of kids.

    Wahhh

    Some dumb kid who can barely string a sentence together gets a degree from a university that he would otherwise never be allowed to attend, and comes out with no debt. Real students actually go to class and struggle w student debt for 25 years.

    So because the state of college tuition is a joke in this country, it's cool that college athletes can't even get free tattoos from their fans?

    I don't follow the logic.

    I went to college on the Uncle Sam scholarship aka the GI Bill.

    I still think it's ridiculous these dudes can't sign some autographs at the state fair for spending money.

    So dumb that this is a story or issue.

    If OBJ or anyone else wants to give some cash to some college kids then they should be able to accept it with no problem.

    The NCAA rules are suck a fucking crock of shit.
