    LSU is going to get hit hard. They are playing a player that they know was paid. I’m not sure sure what they are doing.

    I hope Smart isn't able to use this unusual situation as inspiration to "go off" :eek:

    I see it as equally possible that it could throw off his game. :cool:

    Or, maybe it's not really that big of a deal to him and won't have any impact.

    We'll see. I think we'll be able to tell if it's one of the first two scenarios.

    My guess is they know they are vacating everything from this season anyway so might as well keep playing the guy.

    LSU: You didn’t get paid did you Mr. Smart?
    Mr. Smart: No.
    LSU: Mr. Smart has been cooperative and transparent. He may play.

    Agree, but I would think (hope) that their decision to play a blatantly ineligible player will result in significantly more severe sanctions down the road. That's the kind of action that shows and absolute lack of institutional control and should put the death penalty for their basketball program into consideration.
