Reports from ESPN and Yahoo Sports say the FBI intercepted a phone conversation between LSU Basketball Coach Will Wade and recruiting middleman Christian Dawkins, in which Wade is recorded discussing a “deal” about “this Smart thing,” which could be a reference to LSU freshman guard Javonte Smart.

Yahoo Sports quotes the phone call:

“I was thinking last night on this Smart thing,” Wade said. “I’ll be honest with you, I’m [expletive] tired of dealing with the thing. Like I’m just [expletive] sick of dealing with the [expletive]. Like, this should not be that [expletive] complicated.”

LSU Men's Basketball is currently enjoying its best season in a decade, but the current allegations could disrupt the team's focus moving into tournament play.

Additionally, everything the team achieves this year may not matter. The NCAA has a long history of leveling strong punishments for programs with these type of violations. Which could include vacating anything this LSU team has already won, or will win, this season.
