    Not exactly a mess; they just need to sit Smart, and move forward. Still a formidable opponent.

      They are still good at basketball and they have nothing to lose now. I can see them either giving up mentally or getting on a roll because this could be their last chance for awhile.

      I think they’re going to be fired up. Vandy is not good; but, they ran over them with Reid and Smart both out. I don’t think Reid’s injury is serious, he didn’t need stitches.

    Honestly, before this all surfaced, I believe LSU was on their way to a title. Not just SEC, but NCAA. They had every piece in place and were starting to look the part. Smart playing point while Waters was out against Tennessee was a revelation. I was shocked at how they didn’t miss a beat without Waters. They had it all and the timing of this evidence dropping is something I would like to know more about. Why now? Maybe the powers that be didn’t want to see another banner come down. If so, that seems like a good decision. However, I feel for LSU fans. What a ride this could have been and it is now derailing. In the end, if KY wins it all, we can definitely look back and see this as something that played into our good fortunes this year. I honestly believe you won’t even see LSU in the NCAA tournament.

      The NCAA doesn’t work that fast; only thing to keep them out of NCAA is for the school to shut it down, and we saw with UL…that doesn’t help.
      I would just keep playing and competing…only thing that could derail them is if there is some suspicion about Naz Reid’s recruitment.

    Agreed. I think LSU administration will decide to sit it out. The heat is going to be applied throughout the week by the media.

      I thought Will Wade would keep coaching, so what do I know. But an interim coach is in place, and the player who was supposedly paid is benched. So I don’t see any reason to decline an invitation to the tournament unless the players don’t want to play.

    If Will Wade did something wrong, then the school did something wrong. They have a very good team, but it doesn’t seem fair to let them play and take the place of a school that did things the right way.

    I think it’s fair. A coach and one player MIGHT have broken the rules but the other players deserve to go. Fire Wade, bench Smart, let the rest of the players have the experience. If the NCAA takes it away on down the road then so be it. The kids still get to go to the show

      Same with Eddie Sutton back in the 80’s. Kentucky got penalized for the coach. The ncaa is anything but fair.

    If you think Smart was the only one who got bought, then I got some swamp land to sell you!

      He SAID he got better players w fewer problems.

    I’m sure that I am not the only one that thinks there could more to Naz Reid’s “Injury”… I guess we might find out more as the SEC Tourney unfolds.
