Joe Burrow says he took money from Odell Beckham Jr

Odell Beckham celebrates LSU's win vs. Clemson

Odell Beckham's celebration of LSU's national title win on Monday wasn't confined to handing out money on the sidelines. It wasn't entirely clear if Beckham actually made contact with the officer, but judging from the officer's immediate reaction with his back turned, it appeared likely.

LSU associate athletic director Robert Munson initially said on Tuesday that Beckham was handing out fake money as a "joke", but he later added that the school is investigating to see if players took money. They later said they're looking into the whole situation because they aren't sure yet if that was the case. The future National Football League quarterback did not say whether Beckham gave him money during the postgame celebration on the field.

"I'm not a student-athlete anymore, so I can say yeah", Burrow said on the episode.

That at least implies a trip overseas is likely, even if it is a little closer to home. The manager felt the 18-year-old needed to focus on United's performance.

There's honestly no telling with Beckham. Kirklin did not have a catch in the game. While speaking to Barstool Sports, Burrow confirmed that the money was, indeed, real. We'll probably have to wait until the dust settles from LSU's championship though to find out what the potential punishments could be.

It's obviously beneficial for Beckham to be visible around the program.

The NCAA is one of the most strict organizations in the world when it comes to this sort of thing so it wouldn't be surprising to see them act swiftly if LSU did, in fact, break any rules. His presence around LSU only helps the program - especially in recruiting. Video of the incident went viral as some people questioned if it was legal for college players to accept the money. That's not helping LSU, that only hurts the program.
