LSU starting quarterback Joe Burrow took to Twitter this afternoon to call out the NCAA in the wake of the Missouri football news.

The NCAA announced this afternoon that Missouri's football program has been banned from the 2019-20 postseason as a result of an academic scandal in which a tutor is accused of doing work for athletes.

This is tough news for everyone within Missouri's football program, but it's especially bad for Kelly Bryant.

The former Clemson quarterback transferred to Missouri for his final year of eligibility. Now, if he decides to stick with the Tigers, he won't be playing in a bowl game.

Burrow, who transferred to LSU from Ohio State, is calling out the NCAA.

"Hey @NCAA, I’d bet nobody informed Kelly Bryant of these impending sanctions when he was deciding on the destination for his final year of eligibility. How is that protecting the athletes?" he tweeted.

Bryant will reportedly be allowed to transfer to another school and play immediately in 2019, but this postseason ban information is certainly something the quarterback would've liked to know before committing to Missouri.

Missouri is planning on appealing the NCAA's decision, though the ban is likely to stick.
