Yahoo’s Wetzel Tweets About LSU, Lyles

Earlier today we told you that ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” program reviewed the video and DVDs LSU purchased for $6,000 from Willie Lyles and found that much of the video was old or of poor quality.  In fact, some players featured on the DVDs were already playing college football when LSU received the video.

Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports has also pointed out — via Twitter — something regarding Lyles and LSU that seems to have been forgotten by many:


“As Yahoo reported weeks ago, LSU paid for CA, KS Juco package, but per Will Lyles: ‘all they wanted to discuss was Texas high schools.’”


No doubt Tiger fans will discredit Wetzel and Lyles.  That’s really standard operating procedure when someone points out something negative about a team (whether the something pointed out is true or not). 

But the problems for LSU are as follows:


1.  The NCAA is already asking questions about Lyles.

2.  The NCAA is already asking questions to LSU about Lyles.

3.  The NCAA watches ESPN just like the rest of America, so they will likely ask why LSU paid $6,000 for bum DVDs.

4.  NCAA officials can read the Lyles quotes just as easily as you can.  They also can compare those quotes to what LSU officials have said.


None of this means LSU is guilty of a thing, mind you.  That’s not the point here.  The point is that LSU — by having any connection to Lyles at all — is under the microscope.  And that’s not a place where you ever want to be.

Scott Reppond...

Gotta love kooks who think we at MrSEC are pulling for one school or another. Three of us work for this site and not a one of us care who wins and loses on football Saturdays.

Also, what field day are we having here? "None of this means LSU is guilty of a thing, mind you." Did you skip that line? I don't really see any bias here.

But since you piped up, what's your take on our piece regarding Danny Sheridan's claims? Let me guess... we wrote something pro-Auburn just to LUUUURE people into thinking we're not REALLLY pro-Alabama, right? Right?

As usual I see Bammer is having a field day when it comes to Auburn or LSU. What Bammer fans are being blind to is the fact that Bammer is already on Probation and they just turned in 36 minor violations and in usual Bammer fashion, they are probably hiding that many more. For a Bammer in any fashion to say anything about any other team is like calling the kettle black as Bammer has been on probation for the most part for the last 20 years. If I was a Bammer fan, I'd be walking really lightly and wouldn't be pointing a finger at anyone else as it might just be Bammer next on the chopping block....The NCAA is still out head hunting and nobody is immune....
