BATON ROUGE, La. — The standoff is nearing an end. Suspended basketball coach Will Wade is scheduled to meet with LSU and NCAA officials on Friday, agreeing to speak after more than a month of silence. The school confirmed the news Thursday when Sports Illustrated requested a comment on the impending meeting. It ends a 34-day stalemate between the two sides and begins what could be a long-winding process to reinstatement. The meeting is only an initial step in an investigation into a wiretapped phone conversation between the coach and a recruiting middleman revealed last month in a Yahoo! Sports story. School officials placed the coach on indefinite suspension March 8 for declining to speak with them on the matter. Read more.

So this is a meeting with the NCAA involved. About a rumor of a possible illegal action with Smart. Smart has been cleared by the NCAA so WTF? If they decided Smart was not involved in any financial wrongdoing with Will Wade, how can WW be involved in financial wrongdoing with Smart?

It’s not uncommon to wait until tournaments/national championships/playoffs/etc are over to talk. CBS doesn’t want to share the spotlight.

I am certainly curious to see what happens...this is really a critical juncture in the future of the program. If he stays, the future will continue to be a bright one. If he is fired, sanctions are on the way and we will be a doormat for the next decade. Keeping my fingers crossed...

I hope Yahoo Sports doesn't post another article about Wade before tomorrows meeting.... Alleva would get scared and cancel it.

I hate that I have a Yahoo email.

I think that is why they floated the fact that a meeting is occurring to see if Yahoo has anything left. Assuming nothing new, the result of the meeting has been predetermined.
