LSU Board Members Concerned/Confident About NCAA Investigation

If you’re a member of LSU’s board of supervisors, it’s hard to know exactly how to feel about the NCAA’s investigation in street-agent Willie Lyles.  That investigation has led to Baton Rouge and one board member — at least — is concerned about that fact.  However, the school is believed to have been very open with the NCAA’s investigators and that’s left another board member feeling confident.

Tony Falterman is the concerned board member:

“I’m just concerned that the questions about this have continued to go on.  I didn’t think it was going to continue, and it’s continuing.  I guess that’s part of the investigation, to make sure that the investigation is complete and they just don’t go after one school.  They go after everybody that used that particular person or organization.  It’s just a question in the back of your mind.  Why is it continuing?  I’m not saying there’s anything there.  Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t know if there is anything substantive behind it or not, but it’s a concern certainly.”

Ronald Anderson is the confident board member:

“I think we’re handling it right.  We’ve been up front.  We didn’t wait for the NCAA to get involved with the details.  From what I can see and have heard so far, I don’t think it’s anything out of line with what we’ve asked for and what we’ve gotten from (Lyles).  We’re trying to be ahead of the game and put it out there before we get burned with something that we’re not forthcoming about.”

Quiet confidence or mild concern?  Most folks associated with LSU probably feel a little bit of both right now.  Confidence that the school has done nothing wrong… but concern that the NCAA is asking any questions in the first place.
