Miles Not Worried About Shepard Probe

LSU’s football program was recently placed on probation for major violations committed a couple of years ago.  The NCAA has also visited Baton Rouge in recent weeks to discuss street-agent Willie Lyles.  And now the NCAA is looking into Russell Shepard’s living arrangements.

Not to worry.  At least according to Les Miles.

“There have been communications that would make it appear that it’s not very, very serious.  Oh, he’s fine.  No, he won’t have to sit out.  He’ll come to practice.  We wouldn’t expect there to be any issues there.”

That’s what Miles told the Baton Rouge Rotary Club yesterday afternoon.  If that doesn’t sound like a lot of information, here’s why: “We have a couple of NCAA investigations going on that I can’t talk about and won’t talk about.”

Ah.

The Shepard story broke during SEC Media Days.  Miles scratched the receiver from the speakers’ list saying that he had some personal matters to attend to back in Baton Rouge.

It’s been reported that Shepard moved in with his girlfriend this spring.  She has worked in the Tiger football office since before Shepard arrived on campus.

As Glenn Guilbeau of Gannett Louisiana points out, “It is against the rules (for student-athletes) to pocket the money (they are given for off-campus rent) and have the apartment paid for by a third party.”

So the NCAA continues to dig for dirt in a couple of areas at LSU.  Miles remains confident that there’s been no serious wrongdoing.  For Tiger fans, we hope the LSU compliance office is as buttoned up on Shepard and Lyles as they were on Akiem Hicks and DJ McCarthy.
