I think Will Wade & Byrce Drew are very similar in Coaches. One just so happens to coach at LSU where Winning sometimes comes at all costs. Just my opinion.
    Camby took money from an outside source two years after joining Umass. Also Calipari had UMass turned around before Camby joined Umass. He was getting them into the top 25 before Camby. So not that great of an example.

    I think Wade is fired right after he testifies, LSU will keep him till then hoping he controls the damage.

    Then...Pitino to LSU, you heard it here first!

    I wouldn’t care if Mark Emmert himself caught me handing a pile of money to a kid, absolutely no way would I admit to anything or self impose punishment.

    The NCAA has been way too selective with who and how they decide to enforce their rules.

    Hire a few lawyers and dare them to say a word about it...

    Don't they have to sit Smart too?
    If they sit him it would keep from vacating any games the rest of the season.

    At this point what does it matter? They aren't likely winning anything without Smart so just playing and what happens happens.

    Technically the conversation just shows that he shot down getting paid, because they didn't accept the great deal he offered them lol. So the only thing it shows was him turning it down, not accepting anything. Which may never be able to prove he did accept anything, so can't really suspend him.

    So he said, "No no that deal sucks, I'll come play for free!"

    I hear what you're saying, but they are going to need more than him turning down an offer...

    The wiretap is about the middle man turning it down, because he wasn't getting enough. I've not read anywhere that the player accepted or turned down any offer.

    So what you are saying is right. I'm sure there is a call with him or his mom talking to the wiretap dude and talking over the the offer.

    What I think is strange this was know last year by LSU. However they don’t do anything until ESPN reports this week they heard the tape with Wade on it.

    Why would they do anything? When in history have schools been whistleblowers on themselves?

    Looks like LSU is going to sit Smart also.
