This is what a competent administration would have done.

Unfortunately we are ran by a-holes.

the key difference is the Zona admins backed there coach, they suspended him one game, Ayton never sat.

the people in this thread saying we had to sit Wade and Smart are making zero sense, we have an exact example of what to do a year prior with what happened in Arizona.

Wade and Smart sitting is a cave in job by the admins to Dick Vitales tweets and a second rate search engine.

Wade should 100% be coaching this weekend and Smart playing, we already have a blue print of what to do.


Your comments suggest that you believe this is all over for Arizona. Time will tell whether it was the right move to suspend Wade and hold out Smart. The story is long from over.

The entire year's gonna get trashed anyway. It's the FUTURE that the AD is worried about.

re: Real talk on Wade and Smart going forward in the tournament.
Kansas as well, we have direct text message evidence from Self yet he still coachs.

What Im saying is that its idiotic for LSU to cave so early when we dont even have an NCAA investigation happening, none of the other schools caved, yet we belly up first.

The fact is as of now, LSU has suspended Wade over a Pat Forde article and Dick Vitale losing his mind. The media played LSUs hand which is embarrassing. Kansas and Zona didnt give a frick about the media, which is the same stance we should have taken. Yet we freaked prematurely.

LSU is going to have to forfeit the whole season and will likely have to sit out of the Big Dance this year.

This is correct, UNLESS the AD thinks that by doing so, the NCAA will go much easier on them, which they probably would....and that IS a possibility.

re: Real talk on Wade and Smart going forward in the tournament.
I honestly don't want y'all to get hammered. I just like fricking with y'all....but y'all need to tread lightly with the NCAA on this. When the Langham "thing" happened with Alabama's football team in the 90s, Coach Stallings and the AD basically told the NCAA to kiss their ass, and the NCAA nearly BURIED them, so......it CAN happen.

crisp ill tell you this, if we sit out the dance Im probably done with LSU athletics until Alleva and King are gone, would be the tipping point for a ton of fans.

I'm guessing that if that happens, they WILL be gone. I strongly suspect your BoT has gotten involved by now, and they ain't gonna be happy about what's happened under their watch.

You don't risk having to forfeit the games later because you knowingly played a dirty player. No team in the country would have Smart out there.


What good does it do to win a few tourney games if the rest of your season is vacated? We won’t make it far without Smart.

Kansas let one of their top talents ride the pine all of last year, just because they couldn't be sure


Completely different situation. If this were happening at the beginning of the year then I can see the reasoning.

It’s crossed my mind, but he took a pretty big shot in the Florida game and was out the rest of that game, so it’s not like it was out of the blue.

You're probably right, but crap like this raises antennas.
