As the Bayou Boils | LSU/FBIThread | Wade refuses ANOTHER meeting



This investigation centers around the FBI trial of a couple of Adidas executives and would-be handler Christian Dawkins. There is a criminal trial scheduled for April.

Why is that a potential big problem for LSU? The NCAA can now use that information alone instead of being forced to launch their own investigation.


Feb. 25, 2018 - Yahoo: LSU's Will Wade draws scrutiny from NCAA for recruiting tactics

Feb 28, 2018 - Will Wade denies any contact or inquiry from the NCAA


In the fall of 2018, initial court documents were released that showed Will Wade was on wiretaps, although the extent of those conversations were not fully released.

Will Wade vehemently denies having ever done business with Christian Dawkins.

"I or we have never, ever done business of any kind with Christian Dawkins.”

A few days later, Scott Rabalais and The Advocate come to Wade's defense in a lengthy article.

Oct. 22, 2018 - Rabalais: LSU coach Will Wade has earned scrutiny, but hardly conviction, in Christian Dawkins case


On February 26, 2019, Yahoo! Sports and USA Today revealed that LSU's Will Wade and Arizona's Sean Miller were facing subpoenas in the ongoing FBI criminal case.

On March 5, we were told by SECrant newcomer NorthBruin40 to expect additional allegations against Wade.

More coming


Fast forward a few months into the court proceedings & just two days following NorthBruin40's ominous warning, and Yahoo! Sports releases an article detailing the FBI Wiretaps.

Match 7, 2019 - Exclusive: Wiretap reveals LSU coach Will Wade discussed recruiting 'offer' with hoops scandal middleman

quote:

“Dude,” Wade continued to Dawkins, referring to the third party involved in the recruitment, “I went to him with a [expletive] strong-ass offer about a month ago. [Expletive] strong.

“The problem was, I know why he didn’t take it now, it was [expletive] tilted toward the family a little bit,” Wade continued. “It was tilted toward taking care of the mom, taking care of the kid. Like it was tilted towards that. Now I know for a fact he didn’t explain everything to the mom. I know now, he didn’t get enough of the piece of the pie in the deal.”

Dawkins responded by saying, “Hmmmm.”

“It was a [expletive] hell of a [expletive] offer,” Wade continued. “Hell of an offer.”



Following the Yahoo! report, several high profile individuals have issued scolding remarks towards LSU and its basketball program.

quote:

“You know what, my job is to be there and support the players,” he said. “That’s why I was there, and it didn’t change because Will wasn’t coaching.”

...

When asked what he would say to the fans, Alleva paused and said, “You know, I really wouldn’t say much to them. I believe we did the right thing."

“It’s not all about winning. A lot of people just care about winning. … Winning is not the end of what we do. Our job is to prepare young people for the rest of their lives... if there’s any cheating involved that is not winning, OK? That is not winning.”

I think it should be “as the Boot burns”

Reference to Wade’s “Boot up”... just think that’s a little funnier/catchier to me

Just to make sure this is on first page: LSU is the 2019 SEC champions! ... for now.

And it wasn’t basket interference.

re: As the Bayou Boils | LSU/FBIThread | Wade refuses ANOTHER meeting
You did a good job putting a lot of info in one place... regardless of your anti-LSU agenda. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how this plays out.

I’ll add...LSU will absolutely have an NCAA issue on its hands down the road. The problem is the NCAA doesn’t have any of the stuff yet, they got denied by the court. NCAA is compeletely separate process from the current happenings, and they pretty much have to wait til this is all over.

Right now there’s only 2 parties in this thing... FBI/US vs Dawkins. Govt says all this LSU/Arizona/Kansas/Duke/Kentucky stuff is irrelevant to the case at hand. Defense wants it all out there and is trying to make a spectacle of it. Forde is one of the tools they’re using...He’s eating it up like a fat kid with cake.

The next trial starts in April, which is why things are starting to leak out ahead of it. It’s all so predictable.

quote:

Dawkins faces another bribery trial in April


quote:

a second trial slated for April and potentially featuring Arizona coach Sean Miller as a star witness promises to be a “street fight,” according to defense attorney Steve Haney


quote:

Asked how many coaches might take the stand in April, Haney said, “As many as I can get in the courtroom. In the second trial, we’re going to pull back the curtain.”


You’re seeing the “street fight” play out real time in this thread and in the media

This is actually really fascinating to me. I believe NorthBruin40 to be much more than some random UCLA fan. No doubt somehow connected to the whole ordeal, likely a part of the defense team. He's been spot on, and has given credit to some supposedly connected UCLA board "mod."

What did HailHailtoMichigan! do to you? That seems to be an unprovoked attack on a fellow LSU fan.

The one thing missing from the OPs time line is the 6 year extension that LSU inked with Will Wade back on 3/30/2017!

This should be an official NCAA basketball FBI investigation thread.

Why not include Duke and Kansas? if the NCAA is going to inquire the FBI's findings, they're going to investigate Kansas and Duke in a bidding war for Zion.


LINK



personally I think it's hilarious you all think the NCAA is going to come down on LSU when at least three blue bloods (Arizona, Duke, and Kansas) are all implicated in Dawkins' selling out for reduced sentence. the fact that Kansas Basketball has been recorded by wiretap about purchasing Zion is absolutely epic, putting Kansas and LSU in a very, very familiar boat. Is it possible the NCAA somehow overlooks what Kansas did? sure, but the case in april is going to put a lot of heat on the blue bloods

No, I don't think LSU comes out of this unscathed. I just don't think the NCAA is going to do as much as you're all hoping and praying for (fricking pathetic and hilarious btw) when double digit schools that help line the NCAA's pockets are going to be included in this investigation. We won't even be the last SEC school implicated in Dawkins going scorched earth on CBB, so prep those butts!



looking forward to winning the 2019 SEC regular season championship saturday I'm riding all the way to possible sanctions with our pear shaped leader, so suck it bitches
