Sean Miller, Will Wade won’t have to testify in the college hoops trial after all

Sean Miller and Will Wade should be thanking their lucky stars right now because a federal judge just ruled that they won’t have to testify in the upcoming college hoops trial.

The Arizona and LSU coaches were subpoenaed by Christian Dawkins’ attorney in February, but U.S. District Court Judge Edgardo Ramos ruled this morning that because Dawkins and his fellow defendant Merl Code did not bribe Miller or Wade specifically, their testimony is irrelevant (they did bribe Arizona assistant coach Emanuel “Book” Richardson, Oklahoma State’s Lamont Evans, and USC’s Tony Bland). Still, Dawkins’ attorney Steven Haney dangled the bait out there for the rest of us.

“The evidence establishes very clearly that Sean Miller is paying players at Arizona,” Haney said during Friday morning’s hearing.

When asked by reporters following the hearing about that statement, Haney said, “You’ll have to be here to hear the evidence.”

Dangit. The NCAA can still come after Miller and Wade, but it’ll be a lot tougher without those tapes and their testimony. The trial begins Monday.

      At least this is the case with the FBI. But I’m sure the NCAA wont do anything either.

    I’m no lawyer, but that doesn’t seem like a great thing for either of them. Seems more like their last chance to exonerate themselves just got taken away, IF you believe that was possible. Clearly the judge didn’t think it possible, hence the ruling.

    Wade says that was a strong-ass ruling, and Miller just stopped sweating.

    all I can say is, two more head coaching jobs will now be filled. But like Auburn, if the shoe fits…

    They both walk. Nothing will be done to them.

      I agree to an extent.

      LSU may or may not fire Wade.

      “Irregardless”, as they say in Brooklyn, Wade is a stain on the program.

      WADE AND LSU both look “G U I L T Y”.
