As you all know by now, Yahoo Sports published a report Thursday regarding LSU head coach Will Wade and his phone conversation with basketball middleman Christian Dawkins.

On the call, which was recorded on an FBI wiretap, Wade mentioned "an offer" and expressed frustration about a players commitment.

Many among the sports media have come forward to voice their opinion on the report and some have even suggested that LSU should fire Wade and skip the NCAA Tournament.

The latest to give their take on the subject is College Basketball commentator Dick Vitale, who trashed Wade on Twitter for “disgraceful” comments on the wiretap.

Dick Vital is a 'bagman' for all of the bluebloods. He really is if you think about it. He also has a perfect cover if he gets caught with a young recruit, "I was conducting an interview for ESPN, BABY"!. You and Fat Forde are dead to us

So it is LSU who was the source of all the corruption in college basketball and Duke, UK, UNC (grade fixing), and Kansas are putting teams on the court year after year with 4 and 5 McDonald's All-Americans and are clean? An LSU Basketball program which was left for dead for a decade is the corruptor of College Basketball? Fuk all these self righteous assholes beginning with Vitale. Lying little fuk.

So Zion Williamson's dad wanted Housing, money and a job from KU..so he goes to Duke... for free?..LMAOOOOO..yea right..The NCAA is not going to punish anyone else but LSU when all said and done by forcing LSU to FIRE WILL WADE becuz they dont want to bring any other MAJOR BASKETBALL schools in the Major spotlight...

It’s ridiculous for fans to act like Wade hasn’t violated the rules and got caught on a wire tap. And it is equally ridiculous for anyone, but especially a guy like vitale, to pretend the LSU situation is unique, isolated and egregious. The ncaa and collegiate sports are a giant fraud, a complete sham and sleazeballs like vitale are purveyors of that fraud.

I disagree with your first statement. Wade hasn't been found guilty of anything. Everyone was confident the Duke lacrosse team was guilty, and look what happened there. We don't know all of the details yet. Suspending coach Wade over a yahoo article with no accusations from the NCAA or the Feds is spineless, self serving move.

Dcrews, like many, you have your head in the sand. This isn’t duke lacrosse. Everyone knows these top players get paid. Wade just got popped on the phone.

Can the FBI or NCAA prove he gave J. Smart any impermissible benefits? What if the offer was for playing time and the mom was to get a clubhouse suite in the pac? Ijs

I really don’t understand the melt on this board over this situation... I really don’t. First off... Everone and everybody in the world pretty much knows paying for play is happening! Do you know who that includes as well? If you said the NCAA... You’re absolutely right and have won a million dollars... Do y’all realize that in order for the NCAA to make money they have to know that behind the scenes these players are getting paid? If the players weren’t getting paid and they start playing overseas for one year or sitting out for one year the NCAA would lose BILLIONS of dollars... The only entity out to stop this is the Government. Why do you think they are stepping in all of a sudden? Well hell even Dickie V knows players are being paid for that matter...The only thing that went wrong here is Coach Will Wade being caught on wiretaps and should have been more responsible in speaking about anything of that nature over a telephone. Thats it!

I knew he was a whore, but a scandalous whore? Check out his twitter feed he's got too many LSU related stabs that are disrespectful, and then he's got his backdrop a pic of him in the PMAC. His agenda is almost too obvious, but he can do that because hes on the right side. He is obviously making Wade/ LSU the scapegoat..yeh im sure hes guilty but LSU is prime makings for a scapegoat, especially with the alleged implications of Zion and KU. Thats why he is pushing this, he must know that the only thing he loses here is the opinion of LSU fans. Then he has the LSU background, to poke at us who know wassup, but at the same time give a perception that he likes LSU. MY THIRD EYE SEES YOU DICK! YOU MY FREIND, HAVE BEEN EXPOSED!

Dick V can suck my big cock! Man I can't stand this guy. Who asked you old arse MFer? If I ever see anyone with an ESPN logo on their shirt or I know they work for that company as well as yahoo freakn sports, they will have a black eye! And I'm dread serious. I hope I meet this cuck SOB. They're all so damn hypocritical its really sad. Dragging LSU and these kids through the mud Iike this is just disgusting. I'll never watch anything ESPN again and I'm tempted to never watch, listen or affiliate myself with these people even when LSU plays. I'm so sick of LSU being the target for unfair treatment. Everyone knows bama does much more egregious things. Everyone also knows that all teams do this but now LSU is the bad guy in all this? Give me a frickn break. frick you everyone at ESPN and SEC. And I'll say it to yalls face. LSU needs to just do their own thing. This makes me sick.

Kentucky, Duke, N.Carolina ? I'm certain none of these programs have EVER paid a recruit. Yeah right. alabama, Miami, Florida State, Ole Miss ? I'm sure none of these football programs have EVER paid a recruit, especially any from Amite, Louisiana. Yeah right. What a joke the whole college sports scene has become.

I would just love for one day where all these people couldn't lie and act all surprised. Sankey. Vitale. Alleva. The NCAA. The holier than thou bullshite is what pisses me off. That's the disgrace. I guarantee every one one of these people are hardcore sleeze balls and if there affairs came to light even tRant would blush.

Dicky V should know better but I guess you're never too old to make an arse out of yourself. HE is the embarrassment. I hope coach and the Tigers come out of this clean and all these sleazy, hypocritical, rush to judgement, reputation ruining azzholes have to apologize and do some serious butt kissing.

frick Dick. He trashed us when Miles was fired. Who cares what that blow hard of a fraud thinks and says. He's a clown who sucked as a BB coach. You think he ever through Jimmy V under the bus when he was going through his problems with the NCAA? And this would be before JV became ill.
