Further Details on Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Les Miles

"Ken jacoby. Who's he's part of the team from usa today Joined us early. And we asked him how involved were the board of supervisors. These allegations against the students And and that's what a lot of the students. I've been speaking to you today. I've said to you know these people have known about these issues for a long time and nothing has been done about it until now until it appeared in a national newspaper in exactly. We ask kenny. What what were the accusations against less miles less miles Was accused of sexually harassing At least two if not three or more Student workers who worked in the athletic department He essentially wanted a role in personally interviewing them and and selecting who would be picked and and he what we learned today is he had a preference toward blonde Women with large breasts Who were you know particularly attractive. He he wanted this. As a way of sort of selling it to potential recruits selling the school As far as the sexual harassment. What we what we learned is that he you know when he hired these Young women he sometimes offered them To help their careers later later. Down the line after they graduated and then kind of turned that into a more personal relationship with them and and then ultimately one of the women said he kissed her alone when he was driving her in his car One of the other students that that was mentioned in this report today said that she had a very traumatic experience when she was alone in a room with him and led some sort of unwanted touching and and Decide such a profound impact on her that she basically up and left. We also asked k jacoby about joe aleve a wanting to fire less miles after the allegations but did not why. The athletic director found his conduct. So disturbing Back in two thousand thirteen that he said he thought they could fire him over with 'cause but instead they essentially swept under the rug didn't tell the public about it Gave him a private letter of reprimand and and made them attend counseling but then kept them around for another three years until he started losing games. So i mean if that doesn't tell you who really you know has the power in the influence at that university then It's hard to say what does and finally we asked him. How pervasive or the problems. These problems at lsu were pervasive and not just limited to members of the football team or or athletic department. There was a neglect For for providing the proper and appropriate resources to be able to handle sexual assault and domestic violence complaints appropriately Severe understaffing But when they did even you know process complaints often they would result in basically slaps on the wrist. You know students who'd been found responsible for rape Being allowed to stay on campus under probation.

"I guess my guess is. It's got Woodward has a pretty good idea. But I don't think that would be a game-breaker or dealbreaker because he wanted that job badly. It's it's his hometown to alma mater, and I think that trumps everything else. Okay. Okay. That. That's reasonable. You know, the non words that that I heard were in a hurry. And he's our coach till he's not you don't then encourage me. Yeah. I don't think Scott really gave away very much yesterday other than he did not offer what I would consider to be Sherman esque supportive of we'll wait. And by the way, there's no way you can because we'll wait may may skate. And I I mean that skate or he may get blown up this week. I mean, that's how that's how precarious situation is. Right. Well, I think you know, writings on the wall will wait got the new lawyer to you know, to salvage his career, I believe, and I believe LSU, well Lee. Dan. I think I think the hiring Scott Woodward might may have been the key over after all. I don't believe tell me if you do that. Joe Aleve had any thority at the end. I think he was being told what he couldn't couldn't do. And I believe that when the decision to bring we'll way back was made it was made collaboratively because he agreed to meet with them and knowing that's got Woodward was about to get executed. They probably said, okay. Let him come back. We'll we're bring in Scott Woodward. Anyway, I'm sure that's what the president was saying to whoever the booster. That's calling all the shots down there and let him deal with it. So I I don't read anymore into will Wade being back today than I did him being gone a month ago. Okay. You know, I think the arguments they were having internally might have been part of the time delay. But I don't know, you know, I don't know nothing. Well, listen, I think this this trial in New York. It was always the key. I think they were led to believe by Wade's attorney that Wade would probably not be testifying. And I think that's understandable. But you just don't know what happened today about an hour ago. New York may have opened the door to bring Shawn Miller in his witness. And if he comes in as a witness, he's Zona coach, it's possible. Wade will walk in the door as well. I don't know. I mean, I'm not in the courtroom. I'm sitting here in the studio. Right, right. Okay. Paul. I just. Okay. We will continue to watch it. Thanks for the call. Good to have you on. And Wade is an open Leica Hilo way. Thanks for the call. First time caller. All right. Thank you. Just a couple of comments about. Yeah. You gotta last week talking about the top quarterbacks in the SEC next year. And he mentioned the guy contests collusive some them fan. Of course. I next saw like you. Hugh school name. But anyway, he mentioned the guy and Tesco's and dad Jay column over Georgia. But I think he failed to mention Jacob Bailey. Saka thankfully, torched the Clemson defense. Well, you know, wait. It's interesting. You mentioned Jay Bentley. I don't know quarterback at least perceptively whose stock has fallen more than he entered last season with so much optimism, and he had a pretty average year..

"The Paul I mean when when you look at recent history around LSU, and we can talk about the end of twenty fifteen with less miles than the uncertainty. Everything that happened with JIMBO Fisher at Tom Herman LSU's mismanaged a lot of these situations. The fact that on the same day that Joel livas ouster was announced hours later less than an hour later. It was confirmed that Scott Woodward was in. I mean. It. I you and I have been so many conversations over the years call of situations like this that LSU is not handled. Well, this one was flawless in. Its it's got a lot of people feeling like maybe this is a new day where LSU was moving forward with which seems like a unified direction. What was the last Shroff for Joel Eva? What was the tipping point that got him out of that job and into whatever job? He currently is in. Yeah. So I I it makes so much sense to say the will wait stuff. Right. But at the same time, we'll wait it's been reinstated. And Scott Woodward today said will wait coach a sports one hundred percent. So I think from the periphery that's an obvious one. I just don't think that there was a straw that broke the camel's back. I think so much of it was timing. Call and baby f- to understand how the the political system in Louisiana works. Now politics is intertwined that everything. But the bottom line is there are people. And I don't mean fans, I mean influential people I mean board members I mean boosters I mean people at sometimes operate in the shadows who want to Joe Aleve gone for a long time, and they finally garnered enough support to be able to do it. And I don't minimize it. All the fact that part of it happened because Scott. Woodward was available and willing to come. If Scott wasn't willing to come. I don't know that we're having this conversation today, and let me let me check a few boxes here. I with with will Wade. He's one hundred percent behind him. But what's the next? Shooter drop if there is a shooter drop for we'll wait, right? So that the federal trials going on in New York. It started on Monday. We'll wait and Shawn Miller is we know they will not have to testify which means any potential evidence will not be admitted into court either. That's a win for four. We'll wait so palming save something being leaked potential evidence. So we don't know yet exists being leaked that could be smoking gun or something further than what we already know or pending an NCAA investigation, which very likely will come after this federal trial. Remember that the federal government asked NCA investigators hold off on any investigation until we've completed this this trial. So I I'm under the assumption that the NCAA is going to come snoop around. I mean, it would only logical that they would be calling me another thing to keep in mind. Is that the president of the NCAA is Mark ever? Scott Woodward was Marc Emmers chief Lieutenant whenever it was LSU chancellor. Emmer higher Woodward to be as that flooding director at the university of Washington. I I don't know that that necessarily suggest leniency, but it can't hurt. No, I it can the one thing I think it can do even more than promote leniency is. Emmerick can certainly tip off Woodward to which way this is going. Sure. And there in it's worth mentioning to paulie. They're very close in the sense that Scott son, married. Mark Emmers daughter. I mean, that's pretty cool. I've seen..

"That's more efficient than fire in your guy. And then going for somebody you get your guy. I then then you move your personnel. We asked you at the beginning what it means for. We'll wait. And I think that is to be determined. But even though the seems unfair to bring it up. I will at orange Ron was hired by Joe Aleve. We know what? Scott Woodward has done in the past, especially at am with two coaches that he inherited what does it mean to doors, Iran? Well, I would be a lot more nervous if I'm real weight than if I'm that. Okay. At ores, Ron it's not in any sort of NPA trouble at all. And he's coming off a great season in which he wasn't suspended during that season. He spent his top six is recruiting going great. His offense. Looks like it might be improving. So, you know, fancy question coaches always would rather their athletic director who hired them or chancellor who hired them be there while they're still coaching. But I don't I don't think coach Jones is is in any kind of trouble because switching athletic directors. I mean from Riva lasted another five years and owes Kodjo started losing, you know, leave it would fire him. So, but I do think, you know, Wade's got a new sheriff in town to to look at his issues. He's the one who should be worried. Okay. Let me let me let me follow up on that as we wrap up. We we've been waiting for today because we would find out today whether or not he testify if he testified then next week was really the benchmark moment. Many believe so now with a new AD who will be formally introduced next week. What are the the key dates to keep in mind or to watch in relation to will wage future? I would say the key thing now for way, he doesn't have to worry about testifying in a trial. That's that's true. But remember this. He was not in any trouble and LSU when he first had testified when that first came out he's used that as an excuse his first lawyer used that as an excuse. So he wouldn't have to talk about the verisign comment. He made in the Yahoo story. That's really why he used that subpoena as a as a recent he just didn't wanna talk about it could've talked about it because he talked about it last week when he still could have test the buck because he got a new lawyer doing he was doing with the NCAA. Okay. But to answer your question. The next thing is is when the NCAA gets around to investigating continuing its investigation and ruling on the sports revelations in if there's any more revelations by that's that's the next thing for we'll wait. The continuation and conclusion of the ongoing investigation of his recruiting. Is there any way to handicap it? I would say, you know, in the short term. He's all right. Just kind of like showing Miller, you know, the new strategies, you I I heard you say this recently, the new strategy toward the NCAA is to is to ride it out. I don't think schools fear, the NCAA like they used to you know, they'll cross that bridge when they get to it. And and there's there's a bunch of other schools involved too. So it might be years before they actually get to will wait. Glenn? Thank you very much busy week in patent Rouge. And it's not over yet. Well, it's over for a little while I think, but you know, Scott Woodward is just a slam dunk high or this. This is the best hire LSU's made athletic since they hide Nick say this, you know, he really should have been hired as a D back in two thousand eight when they hire Jolley, but where he was AD at at Washington. So this was a surprising move by LSU because it makes so much. Many thanks going. We'll talk to you very soon. I'm sure thank you very much. Okay. Going give joining us with some interesting comments there. And I think most people agree LSU's had a series of terrible hires in many different worlds it. It would seem to reason that one of the worst hires the schools ever made was Joe Aleve as director we are up against a break..

"Deal or a deal that they shouldn't the kids shouldn't pass up and the FBI could've taken that just that soundbite and used it as they bit of evidence that he could probably draw in we'll wait to court and possibly get him to say something different. So it's not actually affect right now. Because that information has not been released in. We'll wait was forbidden from saying anything about it. They wanted to get him in court to try to twist him up and find out if he could say something other than what was said on those tapes because he really didn't have any idea what he said on those tapes. While said less if I ever get in trouble. I'm gonna ask you to represent me. Thank you very much. Joe is up next. Hey, joe. Good afternoon Bal. How you doing today? Great joe. Well after listening to give up fair and how he got to be. Well, I wouldn't go say the dumbest dummy from America's Georgia the done that yoga is you're saying that Nick from Georgia's the dumbest collar on the show. Hey, the dumbest person ever that. The dumbest person ever. I like that by the I'm looking around the studios anyone disagrees, and he hands. Well. Well, he needs a trove if dumbest person of the century. But anyway, this thing with LA down at LSU. You know, they say to me, they just keep having probably coaches like that know, how to have them, but thing was less miles. And then I think they waited extremely too long. We'll wait to do what they did today. But it just the the whole administration and LSU just think jolly I mean, I know high school programs that had bad things, but they're not as bad as as LSU, and it just seems to keep getting worse. But now like coach oats that Alabama just hired. And how do you think he's going to be doing this year? He I don't know. Joe? I know he's waiting like everyone in Alabama for the player from mountain brook to make a determination. He's certainly looking seriously at Memphis LSU, Alabama. I think Alabama's got a shot at him. That would be a big boost to the new coach. Thank you for the call. Great to have you on. We check out Adam next, Adam go right ahead. How do you think? Oh, do you say that Alabama? If Alabama had Clinton scheduled last year, do you think that they would have beat Clinton the national championship? If Clinton had Alabama schedule this year. I mean last year. I think I understand where you're going. I don't think it would have mattered. I think Alabama had a more formidable schedule but not by much Alabama's toughest game. Last year was going to Baton Rouge. And it turned out to be a a a wipeout Alabama. I had to play Georgia which was more difficult than Clemson playing Pittsburgh. But by the time, we got to January seven I I don't think any of the schedule really mattered. I think it would mattered was Clemson was a much better team. On that night in Alabama was really beginning to disintegrate. I do appreciate it very much for call. Anyway, updating the big news of the day. Joe Aleve pushed out at LSU. And it appears very likely that Scott Woodward, the athlete director at Texas AM. We'll take his place we've seen this nothing quite like this. But remember, Scott stricklin left? Mississippi State a couple years ago to replace Jeremy Foley the circumstances. We're much friendlier though. We'll see you tomorrow. Thank you. For listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast.

They were playing against the Red Sox. And if you had Chris Davis going over fifty five you lose his slump ended it oh fifty four. He had a base it on. Three hits and four AVI is, but the one was a single with couple of bases-loaded and driven just single. Yeah. Clean. Great job by poor Selo. I just wanna point that talks fast Riddick.

But it's it's it will not be a huge day CNN when I used to the post, I'm sure for you. It's a huge room gathers certainly not invited. Great.

He was spending more than a month ago for not meeting with the school and answering questions about his relationship with the agent Christian doctrines, they finally met on Friday with the NC double A compliance officials. And after that, the LSU folk said, you know, we're okay with us. We're gonna bring him back. According to Joe Aleve. Oh, who is the at LSU who did show some onions in suspending him? He said Wade's explanations and clarifications offered during the meeting absent actual evidence of misconduct. Satisfies contractual obligation to LSU. Well, wait till they get actual evidence this misconduct. And then we'll see what happens. Did you audiotape of him? Referring making a strong offer Jong off to you. That office.

"You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back in guide your here, and Harry is up next. Hey, Paul good afternoon. Good afternoon to you, Paul if I can get a yes or no aunt if it's possible, it might give me a second SAS my second question. So I'll try can can the NCAA penalize LSU, regardless of of what the outcome is FBI. Take thing is because of the actions of of coach, wait. Yes. Okay. Could that have anything to do with LSU probably having a tough time trying to poke you a competent coach right now. I mean, they could have I would think if it's not legally can approach people agents and beginning negative vibes. Is that possible? Sure. Yeah. Listen to me all y'all yet to these things are very simple there. Couple of executive search firms out there that you could call and get a list of candidates and have them already working on the due diligence and besides you can also eighties have relationships with with agents. And that's that's part of what they do. They meet with agents all the time. And hey wh-. What about this guy? What about that guy? I would think Joe Aleve already has a list. Now the question is can you convince someone to take that job? If you believe if they believe I should say that LSU is going to get hit by the NC, double A, right? Right. So so so basically Paul is it possible there waiting to finalize the way decisions based on the fact that they just simply think once they do that. And they don't get anybody. They really want. Then the fans really gig. It get a little upset. Do you think? That's I think they very well, maybe waiting for someone it's possible that they they have someone targeted that just takes awhile. I I I don't wanna give Joe alita too much credit because frankly, doesn't really deserve it. Okay. Well, I appreciate fall in and look human jaw the final four and we'll see next week. Thank you skipping, right. Past friday. That's okay. I don't mind read is up next in North Carolina. Hillary. Hello. Paula abdul. An in reference to you. Mentioned in about you tie ROY way of should retire. Why do you think you have the right to tell somebody when they ought to retire read? I don't have the right to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't do. And I'm not doing that here. I offered an opinion. Which is what I'm supposed to do as a talk show host. Okay. Well, maybe it should offer opinion about coach caver retiring because he had pro playoffs and he couldn't he couldn't even get into final four. Well, he made the day. He made the made the elite eight last year while ROY was getting blown out on North Carolina soil. Well, let me ask you a question. What are you North Carolina fans so sensitive about about ROY? I mean, it's listen he's a good coach, but he should have retired after he won the national championship which is university bought for him to the tune of about twenty three million dollars in legal fees. And since then it's it hasn't been all that great in the NCAA tournament last year was bitter disappointment this year was a bitter disappointment. And if you want. Roy Williams and quit trying to compare yourself to do. Well, why shouldn't we do last year? And we had him on the road. We should be mean in Chapel Hill. Did you re read by one point? About one point. I don't listen. I don't care about second-place finishes. Okay. I don't think they give a trophy for that. And not and not the past is you've always come by the way, ROY re has your has your women's program doing Chapel Hill. I don't know what's going on with today's.

"You know, so you add and at some point you you've got to make a decision on what to do about the future of your of your program considering Benford has certainly been on. We'll wait staff. That's an understatement. Win or lose the rest of the way. Do you think he has any realistic chance of remaining in that position? Because of what you just got through saying, the the choice candidates are being gobbled up. Well, I guess it's the possibility, you know, something bad, I'll tell you this, you know, in LSU's in position football. Of course, you know, two and a half years ago they had on you got the feeling during while Edwards. Interim and they were kind of on a roll you've got the feeling that Ed had a really good shot to get the job you can deal with the buzz coming from the university was and is a serious candidate it doesn't and even Joe Aleve. I think at the time during all that while it was as the interim came out publicly and said he was a candidate that he's you know, he's basically applying for the job. I you don't get that feeling in this situation at much, you know, in part of it might be because Tony was on a staff with will who might you know, be obviously a little hot water. And in might, you know, might be in more hot water later down the line. So you don't don't get that feeling that much. I don't let me end with a couple of predictions because I do agree. And I know you're doing your best. You're great reporter. But there's only so much any of us know, right? Now. But perhaps you have an opinion will Wade will will be the coach at LSU next year number one. You know, I it doesn't it. It seems like it's going to be very hard for the tea parties to to mend you know, to repair this relationship because you got to remember, you know, when will put out that statement Thursday before they asked tournament LSU, Termine Oprah. I mean, he basically chastise the university and its leaders for suspending him, and then he called the action inappropriate then LSU came back in in. Instead, we'll we'll have an admitted that he didn't do anything wrong. I is this public back and forth that to repair this relationship. I just don't see it happening. And Secondly, and perhaps more important what's your level of concern in relation to the NCWA after we'll Wade appears in court New York next month opening up a a major investigation into this program. That's another good question that I don't, you know, I don't know the answer to. But certainly, you know, the NCAA has been Baton Rouge, maybe on the ground here. They were involved. And all the devante, smart interviews. They wanted to be involved in the interviews will Wade in that's part of the reason he wouldn't talk to LSU didn't want to be in the room at the so all that kind of Kells me a lot. I need to know if a coach is is to fray to speak with the NCAA present that that's probably all I need to know about what could come out later down the line. And it's probably not good because I mean, I think it's a given that if you're a coach in good standing, and you do not cooperate with the NC double you are suddenly in very poor standing, right? If if. Yeah. Right. If you if you if you know, you're innocent didn't do anything wrong. Then usually you would you would come in and talk, you know, so in that way, I think a lot of university leaders at L. Shoe trio. You know, they one of them told me it was pretty big red flag that that will would come in and talk, and that's why I just think this entire situation is gonna be tough to a pair. Finally, you mentioned your article about Tony Benford and the in the fan reaction. What what specifically are are LSU fans bothered and concern by in relation to what you have written. Well, I just you know, it is a positive feature story on a guy that not allow a lot of people know much about you know, so I just kinda wrote about his life and his career..

That's why I call. Thank you. Listen, this thing with the admissions as the other standards that are going on in colleges today. The NC double A is not doing their job. Now, I am not a big believer in the NC double A. But the next step is the university's you said something again, and I listen every day to you before hours in and I learned something every day. And this is what you said today. Money is the issue. I'm from Maryland, I've been university of Maryland fan for number of years now when they move the ACC where they were competitive than almost every sport and went to. The big ten that was strictly a money move. Now to me money is the issue also. But there's two things that you haven't mentioned today that I'd like to talk a little bit about in. That is sponsors and boosters I keep hearing Adidas and the shoes, and I keep hearing about boosters and all these other things interfering in life. But my least Paul you've got to lay some of the blame on the parents with their buying a scholarship. It took me ten years to get my four year college degree because I work for everything that I got. And then when I went to the master's program, I had one class it cost me a thousand dollars. And because I was married had four children. I could not afford to do that. Now to me people like myself who went through college paid every penny back every. Scholarship. I got and things like that. And the most scholarship money ever got in school was a hundred dollars and just so, you know, I graduated Simpson my class soon. We'll come Lodhi these sponsors, and these particular boosters, they're involved just as deeply as anybody else. And if this is my bottom line to you, and I'd like to share your thoughts on it. If we don't see NC double A in these universities, not have these cover-ups lake with Penn State. You had the president go into prison. I think you had other members of the college hierarchy going and getting charged with crimes if if they don't do this. The government will step in the government will say that NC double A. You're just a. A figment of your own imagination. And then go from there. But listen, and I'd like to ask just one more small thing. I would love to have an autographed picture of you. Now. I have a lotta pictures on my wall sports figures that I've had all the graphs through. Rob. Let me jump in here. Quickly before we run out of time. I'm gonna put you on hold in. We'll figure out a way to to make that work. So don't go anywhere. A couple of hours to go on this Tuesday afternoon..

"Of course, not the smartest ruled out the nozzle read is being held out which looked a little suspicious, but he did take did take a very hard shot to the mouth and the Florida game. And and there's Tony Benford the interim coach said today that you know, they're they're hoping to find out today that that he can play in the SEC term at us spec. He would. But when you know, the the the arena was full. The and of course, there's signs everywhere. Free will Wade, and we support coach weight, and all of a sudden, you see Joel leave the student's section across the arena from the other end of the arena this joint leave a walking seats, which I didn't think it was a wise move on his part, and it just started booing and just you just aimed all their other Detroit at him. And I think he kind of be kind of went somewhere else in the second half. But. I think people need to understand a little bit Paul the the atmosphere here over the last several months, and this goes back to the Texas in football game where people here think that their team got screwed in Texas M game by some of the calls. You're the NFC championship game. Which would LSU, of course. But people say the saints got screwed in that game the whole Anthony Davis saga going on. And now you have this thing where we have a coach and he's winning. And they they fear that he is getting ripped away from people have just had enough. And you know, right there wrongly they people fancier just had enough, and and they're just fed up, and they just focused all their anger and animosity onto one guy. They could see it was Joel alita emptying Alexander. The president was also there, but they didn't he he wasn't making himself an obvious target. So didn't give him a hard time. But it was it was something like I've never seen before the mixture of anger and celebration in defiance than that LSU fans. Have course, every fan base. To hold onto their coach these situations, and they'll rally around him until the bitter end. Listen, I'll Joel even defend himself. But I still am begging on you for some help here. Trying to understand why fans would use expletives directed toward the athletic director when this decision to suspend. We'll wait at least on the short term was was not even not even a challenging decision. I mean, this was made at the highest level of the institution. And I doubt Joe Aleve. Made the decision by his by himself. I I really just for the life of me don't understand that type of behavior. And you're right. I mean, it I think LSU made the decision they had to make Rostov jar former colleague who who works for Sports Illustrated wrote a story looking at wins contracts, and they could have fired for insubordination for being willing to talk. Clearly, they don't want to do that out of hand, you know, right now. But yeah, no. It was it was the decision they they had to make an I I think, you know, right? Minded people would say that. But it's, but, you know, leave is not a popular figure to begin like a lot of athletic directors. But particularly this one is not helped himself through the years with a lot of PR decisions going back to the Duke lacrosse scandal..

"I think more will come out that there, and I mean, I'm just guessing but subpoenas pretty serious in. And I think if more even older comes out, and there's you know, there's no telling how much the FBI has this is not the NCAA or some newspaper. This is the FBI probably have a paper trail who knows moral probably come out there. Now, I just I just can't see way coming back. And then she investigation will thinking back on that probably. So and I think that's why this spend it today to to look better in the. Is of a pending investigation. If that's possible Glenn. What's been the reaction? We know the reaction from the university. What what's the average fan saying down there? Well, the average fan yesterday was just totally dismissing it, you know, most of the fans I heard from social media and so forth. But totally dismissing it saying, it was fake news and so forth, you know, people do now. And I think they are really shocked that that this has happened. And it's it's so to them, and you know, I think a lot of people never quite got the fact that this is the FBI and subpoenas and we're waiting on tape. And it doesn't matter that he's on tape because in this may have been published because the attorney for Christian Dawkins wants to get all the coaches because Christian Dawkins, the agent runner was was found guilty in October of wire tapping wire fraud, you know, his attorney wants to get all the coaches, but none of that matters. What matters there's on tape and. And we'll wait is on tape. And and that's why this was so serious. Even a lot of people didn't wanna think he was serious yesterday. Glenn? How does this? Make Joe Aleve. A look or does it really matter considering what happened today, but it did hire him got a lot of credit for hiring him. I believe did I read correctly leave is is in the middle of his own contract conversations. Well, right now, he's just on under contract for more than a year through July of two thousand twenty and. You know? He may well a lot of people expect him to be done in July twenty even before this. But you know, I think you'll leave it did the right thing today. Well, it isn't. I do Glenn. I mean, how how how could he not have how I mean, the whole were how could you let this man coast. Tomorrow's my question. Right. Well, because he's already done Jolie was already done in a year. No, let's see what you're saying. So so he didn't have the self preservation motivation to to keep, but you know, we'll wait had a bit of a reputation when when LSU hired him. So, you know, leave them they will be criticized for not looking at him closely. Playing smart. I want to go back to that. As we wrap up. It just seems to me that if the university was some knowledge, let's play they put themselves in even more harms way. But your your best guesses that they're in on smart at least for now. Yeah. They didn't announce his spending today along with Wade. So that you could do that. He's he's gonna play. But it would be smart Avila shoes not not to let him play. And and and spent him as well. But you know, if the NCAA penalizes LSU for this. They would forfeit the game. He's he's already been in conceivably. So he's already been in just about every game. So, you know, again, you arrived the Bank spend the money for you may be. We are talking Louisiana. I keep forgetting. That's right. That's right. But you know, we'll see tomorrow that'll be interesting to watch. The actually does play address out. You know, that that's all they they keep suspensions of players so forth secret moving and not to make you repeat the obvious. You've already said it, but it's your gas. Will Wade has coached his last game at LSU. Yes. I would say so. Glenn many. Thanks..

"He showed that when he was here, and it happened and going into the southeast conference. I'm have no doubts that he would do whatever it takes to win and win fast. Well, ultimately that falls on on the people that hired him. And you know, I'd like I'd like to know what Joe Aleve a new at the time and how aggressive he was when these allegations first procam. Yeah. You know, you can you can praise thanks for the call, by the way. You can. I've heard somebody today praising alita in king down there for for for doing what they did today. Well, they had no choice. I mean, are you kidding? Is any school in America going to stand by coach today with this out with these allegations hanging over them? I mean people let's be real hero. Let's try not to be this is not kindergarten class. Sam is up next in North Carolina. Hey Sam, thanks. Thanks to call. Hey, Paula height doing we're doing great. Thank you. Imagine. If if coach oh has some of that money that we'll wait head. He thinks they'd be able to bam. Kelly's up next Kelly. Go right ahead. Yeah. I was just when I first saw this the first thing I thought 'cause you know, we've all heard about everybody about the senate's and everybody that you know, every that they've already convicted and everything, but what about the other ones like 'cause I knew that what was the kid's name Sexton from Alabama. They you. Yeah. I mean, they they they supposedly did look into the Collins Sexton since I think they held him out initially. That's what I was wondering. Because I know that there was another. There was like a payment with him and a brother job for brother this persistent and all that stuff. So is this going to trickle down? And this is a rejoice and those guys are listening to this. And this has been going on for two two years. This isn't an isolated situation. There's just more stuff coming on me. All the reason. I mean this first came out in back in the back in the fall. And then came out the other day that he had been subpoenaed. And then the wiretaps okay came out yesterday. So I mean there there are. Scores of coaches that have been linked to this, and including Burs Pearl, by the way, remember him. He was at the outside of Patino, and Shawn Miller, Bruce Pearl was was was at the center of all this his gonna know person. Yeah. The thousand sets everything. Yeah. What anything there are other shoes that like other stories like this? They're going to be coming out saying, yes, I do. Well, I also I'm surprised it hasn't. It's taken as long as it has to be perfectly honest. I I think a lot of coaches have been have been missing sleep now for a very long time. You know, the NC double as the Monica fish ethics of you shouldn't be surprised there. But you know, I have a good weekend. Bill. Thank you very much to your from you. So I mean, this is where we are again. We're trying to digest the situation right now with will wait he has been suspended. We'll try to get some some context to what that means coming up here. Oh, throughout the course of the show. I mean there have this. The negativity against Wade has been unrelenting. And I know a lot of people in in Baton Rouge in LSU fans are not happy about it. I understand that. There's no reason to be happy about it has the media jumped the gun. I don't know. I kind of felt maybe the media has been rather lax up into this point to. I mean, the story has been there for since October. I talked to somebody the other day that actually like there was nothing to it. Well, how do you know? And we find that we found out yesterday. There is a lot more to it. More to come. We'll talk about the life and times of Dan Jenkins coming up next one of the legendary sports writers that some of you perhaps have never heard of. We'll tell you why you should have listened to and spent more time reading them. We're still can even in his afterlife. We'll take a break, buddy. Martin comes up next.

"Our one podcast. Say Hello to you on this Friday. A busy day already just moments ago in Baton Rouge LSU announced that it has suspended its men's basketball.

The statement just being released from the LSU president and chancellor f king Alexander and Joe Aleve. Recent media reports regarding coach Wade or without question concerning to us all as much as we and university officials have taken deliberate and purposeful steps to fairly assess an adequately address the situation as we have done since. Media reports I service months ago, we are closely coordinating with the NCW with every step. They have our full cooperation, and we will continue to report to them all facts and information on this matter all of this all of us at LSU share, the obligation to protect the integrity of this institution. As such. We have suspended head coach will wait indefinitely until such time as we can ensure full compliance with the NC double A as well as institutional policies, and and standards assistant coach Tony Benford will assume duties of interim coach LSU twenty five and five, of course, tied for the lead in the SEC Tigers host Vanderbilt which is certain victory as you can get in the SEC considering Vander has not one.

"My felt but our goal at fans coaches the player we wanna bring another campaign hit back issue. We wanna beat Bama. And if you're a tainted team it next main one injury does not define your things. And so I just really LSU such a good tradition and such a good fan base. And I hate to be. You know, where this started Taylor though. And I agree totally. I thought it was a bad call. But like everything else you have to just move on. Except would Devon white missing the first, but it started with the the athlete director at LSU Joe Aleve by making a public statement about. I don't know what the purpose of it was. But he said he was going to check with the SEC office. He knows the rules. Was that grandstanding by Joe alita? No. I think he was giving the fans they wanted. Look, I'm pissed but don't you think that was but that just spurred it on and then, you know, Carville come on. I mean, carves just having fun. He he's a he's not this. He doesn't he doesn't swim in these waters. He's a fan. He's no no more than that. Yeah. And it's making us other LSU fan, look bad. You know? 'cause like I said we have a great tradition at LSU. Oh, we're known for the atmosphere and the band there. There may be no there may be no better atmosphere than LSU. Yes there. Well, we'll call. I'll onto my question as I look at LSU this year, you know, sitting at seven and one realistically I'd love to see if beat Bama probably not going to happen. I think we can finish off season apologized to you because we are out of time. We will try to answer that tomorrow. Thank you. For listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast.

"And surprisingly, well, I say surprisingly, it caught me a little off guard. The majority of Alabama fans had the same opinion, which was that this was a bad call and he shouldn't be suspended and they don't want him to be suspended. I think Alabama has grown. So tired of playing lopsided games that not only are they looking forward to playing a highly ranked team, but they want them to be at full strength so they can be tested as much as possible so that that was the part that kind of caught me off guard. But yeah, I didn't. I didn't see a lot of Alabama fans on. They're trying to make the case that this was the right call there obviously were some that understand. Band just as I think we do why it was called and why you can't just simply overturn it because you don't want to high profile player to miss the first half of a high profile game and opens up a can of worms that let me look, let's let's compare this to what happened with the with the NCAA transfer rule. Remember how how difficult it used to be to find an exception to the rule to be able to become immediately eligible after a transfer not have to sit out a year and I see that happening all the time. Now, maybe all the time is an overstatement, but but it's much more frequent now for the NCAA to give that waiver for a player to, you know, to. To not have to to sit out a year after transferring. And obviously those those rules have changed further. I in the last few months, but if they ever opened up the door to that with this targeting rule where where the conference office reviewed and decided, yeah, you know what we thought it was a bad call that was made on the spot because it's a big game. We're going to let this guy play. Then all of a sudden the just the teeth behind the rule itself. They, they get filed down, you know, and it the point where the rule itself is really doesn't doesn't have any power anymore. So I hate it. I would love to see Devon white out there. I'm going to be at that game. I, I would like to see him out there for all four quarters. But I understand why after what's done is done, you can't go back and retract it. At, are you do you want to take a crack at why the conspiracy theory is is silly, or do you already want to defend it? Are you conduct that the SEC is out to defend Alabama? So is this going to be three billboards outside Birmingham, Alabama, the movie shortlist. Short film then it'll be taking place. Yes, yeah, very good. It's it's not surprising. It's the SEC it means more and the fans are going to always always take things to an extreme when they feel like they're wronged and they might be in this case, but I completely agree with Brad, if if you're gonna make an exception for a great player heading into a great game, then you have nothing to stand on in far as enforcement. There's just there's no appeals process. I know Joe Aleve tried and that's his job as the LSU athletes director to you. See if maybe something can be tweaked here. Maybe you won't have to sit out the first half or of the game against. Alabama. But I think when that rule like all rules, it can't just apply to the group of five and the non premier programs and the non premier players. It has to apply to everyone. And we've seen premier players that have targeted and then have to sit out. It's just the way it is. But I do wonder guys so much of the targeting conversation seems to be away from player safety. You kind of hear that thrown in whenever someone's complaining like, you know, they're going to go off for two minutes on how bad things are and then have a ten second. Well, it's all about player safety, and we care about that that that that's just not the focus here. So I do wonder, and I'd be curious what you guys think if the whole thing has to be reevaluated. I know you know, Peter on the.
