LSU reacts to flooding

  LSU supported South Carolina last year after it was plagued with flooding.

Over the weekend, flooding in Louisiana left thousands of people displaced from their homes, and while the storms that caused most of the flooding have moved on, rivers like Comite in Baton Rouge are expected to keep rising through this morning.

Because of these floods, LSU canceled its media day and fan days for all sports over the weekend as well as rescheduled a soccer exhibition game in attempts to keep media officials, players and anyone else involved safe and off the roads.

However, those involved with these athletic programs both formerly and currently took to social media to comment on what was happening in Louisiana.

University of South Carolina President Harris Pastides spoke out about the floods, remembering last football season when LSU hosted the Gamecocks due to flooding in South Carolina.

Today, now that some of the water has drained, LSU’s teams practice as normal, preparing for their upcoming season openers.
