@TUSKtimes, that's not what I read. I'm seeing Burns saying he wished Wade would have said the opposite. Instead of saying, "I understand, but am keeping quiet" he'd rather him say "I'm innocent."
Now, if given the opportunity, I'd have to ask Burns what about his first denial: "I have never, ever, done any business of any kind with Christian Dawkins.”
WOWOver the last few days there's been a few conversations around the 'net about more things coming LSU's way. I couldn't tell you the first time I've heard stories that revolved around the same theme. The difference I'm seeing today is these stories are coming from LSU fans whereas in the past it's been something I've seen discussed from fans of other SEC and Louisiana schools.
Here's a snippet of one such post I received. Take it for what it's worth:
“The stuff is literally about to Hit the Fan in Baton Rouge. Like bad bad . Let me explain. To begin I am one of the two LSU contributors of this page. I am a lifelong fan and An Alum. Reports out of Red Stick is that Baton Rouge’s Our Lady of the Lake Hospital Foundation laundered money to LSU Basketball recruits. John Paul Funnes(a former friend and LOT J tailgate partner) was the OLOL Foundation’s former director that was fired this past November for a pattern of embezzlement and forgery. The FBI and BR DA has the case. If The O.L.O.L Foundation is laundering Foundation money to LSU recruits is true ... LSU is super Screwed. Not just talking basketball. Talking the whole athletic department and it’s programs. The LSU Board of Supervisors allowed it based on the reports out of Baton Rouge. This goes beyond lack of institutional control. Talking institutional cheating . This isn’t some private booster.. this is a public foundation that is indirectly tied to the LSU healthcare network that receives reimbursements from tax dollars, and a major LSU sponsor. We are epically screwed. Talking historical epically Screwed. If this turns out to be true.. I can’t be a LSU fan for much longer barring a total cleaning of the LSU leadership and the LSU Board. Things never change here. The politics are toxic. This goes all the way up to the Louisiana Governor’s Office and LA State Senate. Rant over#LSUBayouBandit”
