LSU should skip the NCAA tournament and fire Will Wade after FBI wiretap report

LSU should skip the NCAA tournament and fire Will Wade after FBI wiretap report

When the NCAA tournament begins in two weeks, LSU will be one of roughly a dozen teams for whom the Final Four will seem within reach. The Tigers, who have made just one tournament appearance in the last nine seasons, could even be a No. 1 seed.A 

But after an explosive report Thursday by Yahoo! Sports, which obtained transcripts of a wiretapped phone conversation between coach Will Wade and black market deal-maker Christian Dawkins, LSUa€™s mere presence in the tournament is a mockery. Ita€™s an embarrassment for the school, for the Southeastern Conference and for an NCAA justice system that is relying on the FBI to do its dirty work and still cana€™t take meaningful action in time to save the tournament from such obvious taint.A 

And if anyone at LSU or the SEC actually had the sense to acknowledge what was right in front of them, they wouldna€™t allow it to happen.A 

If LSU was headed for the NIT rather than an SEC regular-season title with a win Saturday, there is little doubt the school would spend this afternoon in self-preservation mode, announcing a self-imposed postseason ban and a suspension for Wade, who has now been caughtA on a pair of phone calls with Dawkins alluding toA transactionsA he would be willing to engage in that would likely violateA NCAA rules.
