The departure of the entire team is embarrassing

It’s unbelievable that a program that has produced 4 Final Fours and Hall of Famers Shaq, Pettit, and Maravich has fallen to these depths

With an adminstation that sacked their coach and sabotaged their postseason, what do you expect?

You can thank Wade for being reckless.

It had to happen. The program needed to rid itself of the Wiretap Willy shite smell

Yes...
It's embarrassing that kids leave because a coach got canned.

So why are they leaving? No more money... they don't want to earn anything with the new coach... what is it? I'm glad they all left.

I expected this to happen once it was announced Wade was let go.

Not sure why you expected something different

I’m not embarrassed. In fact, I’m relieved that LSU basketball will no longer be under NCAA investigation.

Regardless of how we feel about the NCAA, LSU chose to participate, and in doing so abide by the rules of the organization.

I’m not much of a excuse maker. I don’t give a shite what the blue bloods do or how other schools operate.

I’d had enough.

Direct deposits stopped hitting. Would you keep working for less than agreed to?

It’s all on Will Wade. He recruited a bunch of mercenaries who have no sense of team. I understand guys transferring who have a shot going somewhere and being a big time contributor, but some of these guys are lower tier SEC caliber and have no business in the portal.

Wade put them in an impossible position. Why is this so hard for some of you to see? Any administration in the country would have been forced to fire him when he’s paying players out of personal bank accounts. Are there other coaches that are just as guilty and still employed? Absolutely. The difference is they are smart enough to not let it link back directly to them. Wade was dumb and it cost him his job at LSU just like it would have anywhere else.

I think this is the whole point people are missing. That’s not that impressive. This isn’t guys leaving North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, etc. Nobody on the roster this past season was here for LSU.

Not really this is called 25% cleaning house 75% kids these days are more loyal to the coach than school. Hit the portal and land the right guys and we could be about the same level team

Go ahead and tell me specifically who at LSU he paid out of his own pocketbook. Give me the proof as well since you're so positive.

I guess I’m in the minority, but I like it. How do we know those players weren’t promised monetary incentives under Wade? Program needed to be purged and gives LSU a huge opportunity for a build from scratch storyline. Does anyone on this board accept challenges in their lives?

* Arkansas, which joined the SEC in the 1991-92 season, has reached the Final Four twice as a member of the SEC. It won its only NCAA championship as an SEC member in 1994.

3rd most Final Four appeances of all the SEC. 4th place isn’t anywhere close. We’re technically second because Arky has 2 while in SEC
