LSU chose to attack it.
LSU is complete reactionary mode to literally everything that has ever happened. If this is their way of “attacking” then they are incompetent at that too. No matter how you feel about Wade or Smart there is just no defending the LSU administration.

extensions are about recruiting


Except they aren’t. That’s just the convenient justification you and the rest of the Orgeron brigade cane up with to justify his unwarranted extension. I remember you arguing Orgeron needs at least 5 years on his deal at all times for recruiting purposes. And you think anyone is supposed to give a shite when you attempt to insult their intelligence.

quote:

any Malzahn reference was length on contract term.


Malzahn’s undeserved extension made his buyout more than $40 million dollars. That is the only reason Auburn hasn’t fired him yet is because of that. And they still cane incredibly close to swallowing that pill.

quote:

Remember when you argued with me that Canada outsmarted LSU by taking 50% of his guaranteed money.


I remember correctly doing simple math and explaining at a 2nd grade level that taking that deal meant Canada was betting on himself to find another job making $800k a year, or whatever that number was. And that simple number was not accounting for whatever value Canada placed on not having to drag that situation out in court.

Remember the last time you tried to call me on that? Then I explained what actually happened exactly as I did above and you mysteriously forgot about it?

quote:

How’s that outsmarting looking now?


Canada lost $150k or whatever it was last year, and stands to lose a lot more this year since he’s currently unemployed. He bet on himself and lost.

Next gotcha attempt you’re going to fail at?

Nah man, apparently he’s been under investigation by the NCAA and the NCAA it’self had not cleared Smart to play. Which is apparently something the LSU administration can change overnight.

Ok. well even this administration should be able to call a press conference, issue a statement, or type on damn Twitter that Smart is cleared for tomorrow?

Although it apparently involves multiple people across state lines.. So those wagon trails are going to be an issue. I wish there was some digital connection that everyone is constantly on.

Is institutional control retroactive? Like “Hey NCAA we used to not have any institutional control but once stuff came out in the media and you found out about we suspended everyone we could think of so we’re good now right?”

re: LSU trying to get Javonte Smart cleared
An army of people` tirelessly working to clear an lsu athlete with lsu? How long does it take make a statement, we are going to let him play. Can't believe how much money I spent on a degree for a university that can't figure out how to clear a student athlete that is already eligible to play.

That article doesn't definitively state the person they were talking about is Smart....and Ive not seen proof of that and the NCAA told LSU Smart was not ineligible so if he wasn't ineligible then what makes you think he will become ineligible (baring new info)


I am in no way arguing, just posting what LSU is reporting as to why Smart playing is in limbo

It’s really f’ing stupid if you ask me

It’s really amazing how you, Lester, Roger, and the rest of the Orgeron brigade are pretty much the only ones defending lsu’s actions at this point. Not that any of you were ever shy about flaunting your stupidity before. But you’re taking it to a whole new level at this point.


Exactly

It's completely obvious to everyone here what they are doing. It's just sad watching them absolve Orgeron of any and all blame regarding setbacks with the football program.

However, they happily condemn every action made by Will Wade while applauding the unorthodox fricked up behavior displayed by the entire administration.

Where the frick was " institutional control " in Oct '18.

Theyve known about this shite since Oct and allowed Smart to play. They threw ' institutional control ' out with the baby and the bath water.

All this tells me is LSU is looking for something from the NCAA that they will not get.

LSU is calling the NCAA saying "this is what we know, can you tell us he is clear"

The NCAA will come back with a generic response like "We cannot confirm or deny Smart is clear to play because there has been no investigation into the matter"

Then tomorrow LSU will say they could not clear him in time

This is 100% self imposed. I wouldnt be surprised if the NCAA is laughing at how stupid we look

Why does it matter? That ship has already sailed. Smart played all year. LSU Admins are like the guy that gets caught in a City Park john with a guy blowing him, and then blaming his wife.

Just curious on the term "cleared"...when was he ever ruled ineligible? Last game he was held out for "abundance of caution"

I don't think it matters. I think all of this is pointless.

I think the NCAA is basically going to tell LSU "What do you want us to do? We don't know anything about the situation." It was just a publicity stunt to make it look like we tried. This compliance department doesn't have the balls to clear him.
