​​LSU men's basketball head coach ​Will Wade is the latest casualty of the ongoing recruiting scandal plaguing college basketball. The upstart coach of the No. 10-ranked Tigers from Baton Rouge was suspended after allegedly being heard on an FBI wiretap discussing illegal payments to basketball players. 


He's on the shelf indefinitely.

​​This could just he the tip of the iceberg for LSU, as athletic director Joe Alleva now has to answer questions about how much ​Wade told them about what was on the wiretaps. 

​​If Wade was upright and forthcoming about what was on the wiretap and his involvement in this scandal, Alleva would have overlooked his transgressions due to his performance on the basketball court. 


In addition, if a highly-touted player that has eligibility concerns, LSU could be in line for some major sanctions that could kneecap the program for years to come. 

Wade's involvement in the scandal and how it will affect LSU still has to come to light. Based on the latest ​​reports, the worst is yet to come for Wade and the Tigers.
