Scott Rabalais: Olivia Dunne wants to leave a legacy as she leaves LSU gymnastics (maybe).

Philip Barbaree was freezing.In November, he took part in a DP World Tour qualification tournament in Albacete, Spain. 

The temperature is around 50 degrees, with a gale-force wind howling across the golf field to match that figure.

A significant wind delay had been issued, bringing play to a halt. So the former LSU golfer reached into his luggage and pulled out an LSU beanie to cover his cold ears.

A caddy for one of Barbaree's golfing mates soon noticed the three famous letters.

An amusing story, but not surprising. If LSU is a global brand, then so is Dunne. Part social media personality, part model, 

and still a collegiate gymnast, as seen by her performances in the Purple and Gold Classic at the Raising Canes River Center last week. 

One who could be competing for the last time in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Friday, when LSU hosts North Carolina at 7:30 p.m.

The crowds swarm around Dunne like autograph hunters. In January 2023, I wrote a feature about her. Dunne had 9.3 million social media followers at the time, including TikTok, Instagram, and X/Twitter.
