Paul Finebaum made his weekly appearance on “McElroy and Cubelic In The Morning” on Monday and talked about Will Wade's firing and the "serious allegations" against LSU. Here's what he had to say, per SDS:
quote:

“These are allegations, Cole, but they couldn’t be more serious,” Finebaum said. “When you throw around lack of institutional control, throw around Level 1 violation, accusations of Level 1, you’re talking about a real problem in an athletic department. It goes way back, but to me, LSU has played the long game in this, and they lost. They were hoping that somehow they’d be able to fade the heat and look the other way, and they were caught and that’s why as soon as they saw these allegations, and assuming Will Wade got home from the tournament, he was fired. He should have been fired before the tournament, quite frankly. I wouldn’t have let this guy coach another game once these allegations came in, I think on I think they were either Tuesday or Wednesday.”

Finebaum also predicted how this would affect Wade’s career.

“They’ve got a lot to answer for, nobody looks good down there,” Finebaum said. “Three years the conversation about Will Wade was all over, and LSU fans continue to defend him because he was a good basketball coach. He’s a very good basketball coach, who I don’t think will ever coach another game in college basketball based on these allegations.”

The blue blood programs need not worry as Paul will be happy to defend them in the future.

So Paul would have said that his buddy John Calipari, Kevin Sampson, Rick Pitino and Larry Brown would never coach a college basketball team again, based on what each one of those coaches faced when they were investigated back in the day? What an ignorant statement for someone who has covered college sports as long as he has.

Maybe Shaq will come over to coach us back up. He could finance some of the NIL. There must be a good hire somewhere out there. Depressing nonetheless

Maybe Woody has another ringer coach to bring in. Not sure who or how

Not sure many schools fire a coach based on speculation. If it's me, I'm waiting for the investigation to be done before I fire a coach. Sure, we heard of the FBI sting that alerted the NCAA...but it's really ridiculous that the FBI was how this crap came up when those idiots are too busy working with the NYT and WAPO to create propaganda campaigns.

His point is not all other schools do it. His point is LSU knew, continued to support wade hoping it would all just go away. Had they fired wade when they knew the facts, and they knew more than they say they did, then the take would be LSU acted swiftly and decisively.

I would think allegations of murder or raping children is more serious than paying a kid. But that's just me.

Paul’s blow buddy Saban does the same thing. He’s just not as stupid about it as Will.

Paul saying he was a very good basketball coach discredits anything he will ever say again.

Lol Rick Pitino’s Louisville program was getting escorts for his players/recruits and is coaching again. Hell even Art Briles was able to get another gig. It’ll most likely be a few years but he will coach again somewhere.

Paul is so full of shite. Wade will get another small time coaching job in a few years, rehabilitate his image, and be back coaching P5 in no time. People don't care about paying players anymore when you have high schoolers signing 8 million dollar deals before stepping foot on campus.

Pawl is insinuating that, LSU is the only team cheating in the SEC and references that it's systemic of all of our athletics. We are the only ones he's calling out - "you’re talking about a real problem in an athletic department. It goes way back, but to me" blah blah blah... I'm sure Pencil Dick "The Bugfricker" Finebaum has all the evidence to share to go along with his allegations.

Everyone cheats. Problem is LSU got caught because WW is a supreme dumbass. If nothing else he deserves to be fired for being an idiot.

While PF is basically correct, he has been a cock sucker, is a cock sucker and will forever be a cock sucker. The fact that he lives with his head up Saban's arse makes him the least trusted provider of SEC information. Screw him and his penis head looking self
