Did the NCAA freeze recruiting in all sports with ending the seasons early? I was hoping CWW was putting in some extra work on Cisse and Kuminga


No in person recruiting but coaches re utilizing every other means.

Wade was talking like Watford would be back last time he talked.

Hopefully he will commit to playing some defense next year if he returns.

He always was put in an awkward situation when we played 3 bigs and most of the time we played 3 guard lineups. Days and Williams almost always got the other team's bigs then Watford got stuck on some 6'2-6'5 guard usually which is just a mismatch.

I know, this is uncharted territory for me, I feel like I dont have weekends or workdays, been working from home the past week and a half. With no sports news really I just work 10-12 hours every day including a good bit on weekends,

With no sports on a daily basis, I've actually started losing track of what day it is. I kept thinking yesterday was Tuesday.

Normally, it would be nice to know I'm heading to the weekend, but I'm just going to do what I have been doing: staying in the house and going run

NOA are about to be leveled but investigators are going to be watching an HBO documentary and taking notes?

I think that the NCAA investigations are enough of a joke to believe that they didn’t have access to the stuff that HBO did and are probably hearing some of it live for the first time. It honestly wouldn’t surprise me

Despite "audio" tapes, nothing, and I mean no evidence has come forward that "shows" WW paying off someone and there is no evidence that WW "paid" someone. It's all hearsay and conjecture.

Now, we all know the NCAA does not require evidence. If they want to bring the hammer, they can. All they need is someone to say "My grandma heard from her grandma that their cousin's grandson's mother was paid money." Add that statement to a media firestorm and boom, sanctions sanctions sanctions.

NCAA is going to lose over 400 mill in revenue with the cancelling of winter/spring sports. This may come at a good time for us, as they have other issues to draw their attention towards right now.

Bingo. The SEC rant, twitter mob, and Pat Forde think a documentary released in the middle of a global pandemic and recession that's put the NCAA in difficult times is going to be Pear's undoing.


Our athletic director literally BBQ's with Mark Emmert, and he sees no reason to fire Pear with cause.


We are going to come out of this with a top 3 recruiting class and NCAAT roster returning. Epic days ahead and personally I have been enjoying the bucket of tears Pear has harvested during these times.

HBO wouldn't get anything different than what the investigation got, and thus what the NCAA saw.

The problem the NCAA had/has is there is no actual evidence of Wade saying any of the things. It's all hearsay from this Dawkins guy. It's like Canseco during the steroid stuff. Did he say stuff that was true? Yes. Did he also say stuff that was never proven? Yes. You can't punish someone just based off hearsay

Why does this investigation crap pop up 2 yrs in a row around signing day?

Coincidence or someone worried about LSU's recruiting class?

Talked to a staff member, right now it sounds like they believe only Emmitt is leaving. Like always, things could change.
ETA: If recruiting class stays as is and Smart and Watford come back, look for Bishop to transfer. If anyone else is added to the class more would need to transfer.

The investigation will amount to nothing. Smart has already been investigated and cleared by the NCAA, Reid said no payment and without proof, nothing there.
