An alternate outcome to all this (just thinking out loud)
I know I know.. another "hot take" but just hear me out. I think it's more plausible than CWW being an FBI informant.

I'm not worried about the FBI shite at all. I'm worried about after the trial when the NCAA starts shaking shite up.

What if they find that the entire thing is so widespread and rampant throughout CBB that they don't punish one or two particular schools or coaches. Are they going to put 1/3 of college hoops teams on probation? Maybe they use this as a wake-up call to try and regulate shite more going forward or it prompts some serious changes.

Because it's the NCAA I'm sure they'll find a way to frick this up and LSU will get killed as usual.

Maybe this is a comparable example..

If a senior class at a high school pulls some huge prank that goes awry, is the administration likely to take the time to investigate and try to find the ringleaders, or would they simply penalize the whole class by taking away prom or something?

Of course that scenario is dependent upon the administration not being comprised of complete morons. So.... we might be out of luck there. Maybe there is some way that they can punish/reform college basketball as a whole without singling out a handful of schools to punish.

They know this happens at schools. But this is about keeping the image of the amateur athlete. If the NCAA admits they are paying athletes in any sport widespread, it opens up a massive can of worms. In that case, every athlete would have to be paid by the universities, there would be massive tax implications, fraud investigations by the FBI on the NCAA, all kinds of shite. Professional leagues would reconsider their relationships with the NCAA and may override the current relationship they have where most athletes go through the college system first, which is how the NCAA makes money

Lol well of course. Wouldn't you rather all college basketball fans to be miserable instead of just LSU fans?

Wishful thinking

Just like everything else in life it’s all about who you know & how much money you have

The NCAA is going to do everything they can to protect their brand

This is exactly why so many of us are opposed to suspending Wade regardless of whether anything substantive ever comes out.

All reports indicate that this is far too widespread to sanction everyone involved.

Professionals with no ulterior motive would have refrained from comment besides saying they are aware of the situation and will continue to monitor it going forward. They also wouldn't have suspended (fired) the coach for no particular reason and lied about the reasoning behind doing so.

LSU and WIll Wade are in the crosshairs mostly because Will Wade was on tape. Had it been Tony on tape, LSU would not be in the crosshairs now. It's that simple, IMO. It was a young coach mistake.

He may not be that far removed from being the guy fielding these calls for the head coach.

Before a third of the programs go on probation, they will change the rules. The one and done rule really made this bigger and dirtier than it has been. Think coming out of hs, you know this guy is top 3 in the draft. Anything you can do to hook him in earlier rather than later ( when it’s legal). That’s the first rule to go.
