Wow, what did I just read? Lol. Basically saying, “now that we are sure tracks were properly covered, back to making strong a$$ offers!”


(VancouverCOOG) #124

So the cheater keeps on cheating…


#125

Correct…remember in the SEC if you ain’t cheating’ you ain’t tryin’


(Ricky ) #126

LSU: “ did you make any calls to potential recruits and offer them money to play here?”

Will Wade: “No”

LSU: “ okay we believe you, you’re reinstated”


(DERRICK KATELY) #127

Meanwhile, somewhere in the Largest City in Louisiana: Tulane will be penalized for cheating and hiring GSU coach for not “checking with” LSU first…


#128

I thought there was actual audio of this guy making a big offer to some athlete’s mother. If that turns out to be true, I hope the NCAA forces LSU to clean the whole house. But, I know they won’t because LSU is too big of a name. Hopefully it gets resolved in court in the current litigation.


#129

It was reported that FBI wire taps have Wade talking to a bagman about making an offer to Javonte Smart through another 3rd party (probably a handler) and complaining about why the deal was delayed at the time. The bagman was convicted in federal court for wire fraud in the Adidas bribery case.


#130

The trouble is that the NCAA does not DARE to even send anyone to Baton Rouge to “investigate”; they would end up as gator bait! And they know it.


(Munzell Milluns) #131

Wade is back…and open for business.


#132


This honesty not sitting well with UT fans…


#133

Austin University might be looking for a new coach soon. Maybe they’d pay Barnes’ buyout.


(Bryant Hargrave) #134

Id be more annoyed if I was a UCLA fan. You missed on two coaches you wanted, because there school was too cheap for their buyouts.


#135

Look I don’t have any notion of the sanctity of college athletics but Wade being retained is shocking even for somebody as jaundiced as I am. The man is on tape saying what could only be interpreted as being irritated that a very strong cash offer was not taken by a recruit.

At the very least its an NCAA violation. At the middle its tax evasion. At the most its money laundering.


(Thomas) #136

If a school buys out a coaches contract to leave one school to go to another, is there any tax liability by the coach who has his contract bought out?


(Randy ) #137

I’m guessing they write the contracts in a way where the answer is no.


(PMM) #138

Wasn’t that the issue with Herman’s contract. ut wanted UH to assign the contract to them so he could avoid taxes on the buyout amount ($2.5M) that they were paying.

UH told them to take a hike.

Will Hunter go after this dream job???


#141

My Aggie friends are saying their AD is leaving for LSU.
