LSU Tiger fans are at a loss for words after learning of Coach Will Wade’s suspension. Many students said the decision is not fair and they are asking for more evidence.
“They better not take him away from the SEC tournament,” said Douglas, a LSU Freshman.
The decision to “bench” the head coach comes after multiple reports came out saying the FBI wiretapped phone calls between Coach Wade and a recruiter middle man named Christian Dawkins.
Coach Wade is being accused of expressing his frusteration about not being able to close an “offer” for a recruit. Reports suggest the recruit Coach Wade was referring to is LSU Freshman Javonte Smart. He was named the state’s best player three years in a row during his high school basketball career.
“We don’t have any proof of what happened,” said Roger Corbello. “So, I do say that right now it’s unfair until proven guilty.”
Regardless of these allegations against Wade, students said they plan to support the LSU Tigers with or without the schools “beloved” basketball coach.
“As a team we are going to bounce back,” said Mya Harper.
