LSU coach Dennis Shaver responds to stripped titles

Jan 19, 2013

LSU's goal is to always have an NCAA champion caliber team. So when it comes down to conference championships, the Tigers will have some tough competition in the SEC with the addition of Texas A&M. But looking back to last outdoor season, there's no name on the NCAA Championship trophy. Due to a positive test from sprinter Semoy Hackett, LSU was forced to vacate their title. How does that affect the athletes who return this year? "That experience can never be taken away from our student athletes."
