After LSU defeated Clemson in the National Championship game on Wednesday, Tigers alum and Baton Rouge native Odell Beckham Jr. was seen passing out cash to the players on the field and in the locker room.
Such behavior violates the very soul of the NCAA and LSU responded by claiming it was all a joke and that OBJ was passing out fake money.
Not according to Tigers star QB Joe Burrow. Burrows, the likely number pick in the NFL draft, no longer has to worry about his eligibility and he spilled the beans on the handout.

"Yeah," he confirmed when asked if he got Beckham cash. "I'm not a student-athlete anymore so I can say yeah."
Beckham was also blatantly passing cash to Justin Jefferson, a junior WR who is expected to go pro.
LSU has promised to investigate.
