LSU senior pitcher Matthew Beck joins Matt to talk his experiences with coronavirus’ impact on LSU Baseball. What was Beck’s reaction when the season was canceled?

Beck talks baseball nicknames, what happened to his long hair and more before getting back to the serious topic of eligibility.
So what is the situation with Beck’s eligibility?
“The latest that I’ve heard is that there is a vote and everybody is kind of split,” Beck said. “So really I don’t know what is going to happen.”
Hypothetically, if granted another year, would Beck come back to LSU?
“Well to be honest with you I wasn’t really planning on going to LSU for a fifth year. I would have to get a masters and things like that,” Beck said. “Now if they cover it with a scholarship, then it’s a no doubt yes.”
Matt goes around the SEC with stories on Mississippi State, Arkansas and Tennessee.
Taylor Calandro joins Matt to talk business at Calandro’s Supermarket, and the latest Bourbon Dictionary. How has the coronavirus affected whiskey and spirit sales?
