AFR 3-30-2020 Hour 3 | NCAA votes to award an extra year of eligibility

Weekdays 3PM - 6PM

Former LSU and MLB pitcher Louis Coleman joins Matt to talk the latest news out of Major League Baseball amid the coronavirus pandemic. Coleman gives his reaction to the reality of a shortened MLB Draft.

“That’s crazy. I don’t know that’s tough for guys who get drafted in the 30th round and are good players who now get passed over,” Coleman said. “I’m for doing it, but I think it could be more than 10 rounds.”

What about the possibility of games resuming with no fans in the stands?

“I’m all for the fans being there. There’s been situations where they have had to play without fans, and guys said it was erie,” Coleman said. “The game is played for spectators. I know it would be on tv, but it’s more fun with the fans there.”

LSU Track & Field head coach joins Matt to talk how the coronavirus impacted the track season.

“We were about 10 minutes from the first gun at the Indoor NCAA Championship when it was time to go home.” Coach Shaver said. “It was pretty devastating for me, the players and all the coaches. It was the right call. I just wish they would’ve made the call before we all went.”

How is Coach Shaver and his staff passing all the extra time on their hands now?

“Of course we are reaching out to all of our Tiger people,” Coach Shaver said. “Doing a lot of recruiting via FaceTime.”

Matt reacts to the NCAA awarding all spring athletes an extra year of eligibility.
