Will Wade Removed All Luxuries From His Players After AU and UT Losses
The Advocate
quote:


Will Wade admits that he can handle losing, but what he can’t stomach is the way the LSU basketball team lost games at Auburn and Tennessee last week.

Apparently, neither can the Tigers.

After losing back-to-back games to Auburn by 25 points and Tennessee by 23, Wade sent shockwaves through his team by temporarily taking away some of their perks.

Speaking Tuesday to a large group of fans at the monthly Will Wade Tipoff Luncheon at L’Auberge Hotel Casino, the Tigers’ first-year coach told of locking his team out of its locker room for two days before last Saturday’s home game with Arkansas.

“We usually eat really, really nice meals; they get all this great food after practice — fish, steak, chicken, pasta … it’s a big-time spread,” Wade told his audience. “I got rid of all that, and I got them ham-and-cheese box lunches.

quote:


“So, they were going to play their arse off against Arkansas,” he said to laughter from the crowd. “They were tired of the ham-and-cheese sandwiches, and they were tired of not being in the locker room.”

The meals and locker room weren’t the only things the players lost.

Wade had them wash their own clothes, which the team’s managers usually do.

“I wouldn’t let the managers do any of their laundry,” he said. “I felt like a couple of them got a little too comfortable about being here.


quote:

“Think about all the stuff they get: The managers do the laundry and give it back the next day, they get three meals a day. Their locker room is tremendous with couches. … Sometimes you have to rattle their cages a little bit. That got their attention.”

Accountability... something that was sorely missing these last few years.

But, I'm sure chinhoyang will be in here saying Wade is abusing the players

I like this. Good punishment and discipline without coming across as a whackjob or dumbass a la Herman making his players eat burned to a crisp breakfast every morning after they screwed up. This is how a real coach who actually cares about winning does his job

Sounds like what i would do to my 9 and 10 yo kids... Its actually really sad that WW has to remove comforts in order to get the players to play for LSU. Its an honor to wear the purple and gold.

I'm all for what works to get them going. Not bashing WW. Just these kids these days live in an age of entitlement.

Takes a few days of Grilled ham and cheeses to get them to play hard for some steak. Id kill for a ham and cheese samit right now.
