What the heck is it going to take for Leonhard to leave Wisky?

Nemo’s notes -- More than 40 years in athletic administration gives me a perspective of college athletics that is rarely written on a team fan web site.  I hope to bring interesting and relevant thoughts from that world to 247Sports.

BAGHDAD BOB RETURNS, IMPERSONATES SCOTT WOODWARD



Those old enough remember Baghdad Bob, right?  The Iraqi Information Minister who comically told television viewers everything was safe in his country and things were under control, even as American tanks rolled through the backdrop of his taped video reports.  It seems LSU AD Scott Woodward has been taking media pointers from Bob. At least it sure sounds like it, based upon his Fox 8 New Orleans interview on the current state of athletic affairs in Baton Rouge.

On the potential impact the ongoing federal investigation into numerous sexual assault charges within the athletic department might have on head football coach Ed Orgeron:  “Most everything I know about has to do with the past, so, no, Coach O is in very good standing, he and I are aligned and in good shape. I feel very good about where we are.” The fact that most of the attention on the matter was initially drawn from assault charges filed separately against former Tigers Derrius Guice and Drake Davis must be considered little more than B-roll.  Guice played running back at LSU from 2015-17;  Davis was a wide receiver for the Tigers through 2018.  Orgeron was on the LSU staff in 2015 and was named head coach in 2016.  The USA Today has reported that at least nine Tiger football players have been reported to police for sexual misconduct “since Ed Orgeron was promoted to interim head coach in 2016.” The Orgeron/Woodward timelines do not seem to fit the narrative.

TRANSPARENT? HARDLY.
 


Local Louisiana media have been covering the story, to their credit, but even the national media has now made Baton Rouge a regular dateline.  Campus Safety magazine reported as recently as early this week that the U.S. Department of Education was still investigating LSU for possible Clery Act violations.  The Clery Act is a federal law that requires institutions that receive government funding to be transparent in reporting crimes on their premises.  Complaints to the department alleged “a pattern of conduct that resulted in serious violations…”  according to USA Today. 

With respect to executive deputy AD Verge Ausberry, who has been mentioned in this column previously:  “Verge is a very, very good employee in very good standing.  Everything should be fine,”  Woodward said.  You might remember Ausberry was in the middle of the Drake Davis investigation.  Ausberry was forwarded a text message revealing Davis’ sexual harassment of another LSU athlete, one he failed to bring to the attention of the school’s Title IX official, a university and federal offense.

Just two months ago, the USA Today uncovered a 2018 report by that Title IX investigator that showed top athletic department administrators had skirted LSU’s sexual misconduct policies by keeping charges against athletes in house.  The school did nothing to correct the issues at the time, according to the national news agency.

UNDER THE MICROSCOPE



Of course, you have also read here the men’s basketball program at LSU, under the direction of head coach Will Wade, is under investigation from multiple corners.  In fact, Wade has been under the microscope for the last two years, according to the Lafayette Daily Advertiser.  Wade allegedly offered multiple recruits money on an FBI wire tap into excesses in college basketball.  I suppose it could have been anyone on those taps.  Nonetheless, it was hard to watch Wade at the Hump last night.  He looked like a coach with no care in the world.  It is unclear whether the NCAA has sent the school a Notice of Allegations, which would be separate from any football irregularities.  According to some that are close to the school and the investigations, the basketball accusations are presumed to be more numerous and serious than their football counterparts.

All of the football and basketball charges mentioned here are more serious than what the school has admitted, the simple illegal recruiting infractions that don’t reach the Level I status. But according to the leader, there is nothing to see here.

Stolen from SouthAlabamaTide

Report: Georgia WR Demetris Robertson facing serious charge (felony charge for removing a parking boot)

At least he wasn't vandalizing mailboxes that brings the Feds .

It is crazy to me cause I think if Robertson had stayed committed to Bama he would have ended up being a high round draft pick. Now it looks like his best shot is an undrafted free agent unless he balls out this year if he makes on the field.

Well over half of his total production in 5 years came during his freshman season at Cal. I don't necessarily agree that he would have been a high round pick if he had stuck with us though. I don't see him getting a lot of targets over the last 4-5 years. He's definitely not better than any of Ridley, Smitty, Jeudy, Ruggs, or Waddle. I don't even know that he's better than Stewart or Metchie.

re: Other CFB Teams & Games
My point is we have never gotten to see how good he is cause he was never developed. Had he committed to Bama he would have come in the year before those guys in a much better system with much better coaching than he got at Cal. It also means we may not have taken as many WR the next year so it might have been Robertson, with just Jeudy and Ruggs instead of Smitty. With the talent he displayed in high school and everything Bama has to offer there is a strong chance he would have exceled here with Tua at QB.

ETA: went with Florida/LSU, watch some shoe tossing.

Good for Sark, and us. It takes Texas out of the mix for Ty Simpson.

UCF football names Gus Malzahn as new head coach (espn)

Did UCF hire a better coach than the one that left UCF for Tennessee? (SEC Rant)
quote:







UT paid UCF $6M in buyouts to hire AD White & HC HypeL. Gus will get $2.3M/yr from UCF and still collect the remaining $10.5M of his $21M AU contract buyout over the next 4 years.

Looks like Miami is going to need a new LB Coach. Gus hired Travis Williams again at UCF to be D-Coordinator.

Miami quarterback N'Kosi Perry enters transfer portal

There is an outside chance Bama may be up against true freshman Jake Garcia if King isn't back from his ACL tear. Or Tathan Martell could pull himself from the portal.

Gus may or may not click with UCF, but I would call him an upgrade for them. I would actually like to see him do well. I thought Tennessee missed the boat by not hiring him if he was willing to take the job. Maybe he said no, and with the coming sanctions, I couldn’t blame him.
