    Fully expect this was leaked to Glenn by someone within the LSU athletic department:

    Those 'stones' equal established fact. Pearl is a proven/convicted cheater. If Sexton got paid and we had a role in the paying, I've no problem with being punished. But I'm not the one sweating every time a new story emerges about basketball wrongdoing. If we're in the same boat, I'm wearing a life jacket, you're holding the anchor. How long can you hold your breath, fella.

    Moving along... it seems like Wade is trying the same tactic employed by Pearl when the initial news broke regarding Person. Considering how that has worked out for Bruce, he probably figured it's worth a try. By not capitulating, apparently the LSU administration has more intestinal fortitude than some other SEC schools.

    Well, I would have said that we need to pay them rent for living in their heads.

    But theyíre facing some serious criminal stuff ó not NCAA, the feds are after them for felonies ó and most of what they talk about is us.

    Point being, we donít have to pay rent for living their heads....because we already own their heads.

    Not near the razing I thought would happen. We all know college basketball is dirty, I guess I didnít know how well it was hidden.

    Since Bruce hasnít been implicated, I would say no.

    Why Pearl? Wade is gone and Kennedy are gone so there are 2 SEC coaches. I doubt Vandy will get rid of Bryce Drew since this is only his 2nd year there so I think he is safe one more year but definitely on the hotseat next year. Unless he leaves on his on I would say it's 50-50 whether CAJ will be back or not next year. Everyone else should be safe.

    Pearl lawyered up immediately and would not speak with either his school or anyone else. Someone criticized LSU's will Wade for not coming clean to his school when their coach won't even talk to his own employer. When all is said and done, Pearl nor Auburn will likely have any issues. They do what they always do, if you can prove it, it didn't happen and Pearl isn't talking unless there he is a subpoenaed. if he isn't subpoenaed, I'd say there is no direct evidence of his involvement. Were there NCAA issues for him and Auburn? We'll probably never know.

    There is no doubt of his coaching ability though. He took a moribund program and turned it into a winner while we are wondering in the wilderness trying to figure out how to be relevant.
