Yes, yes it will. NCAA is more likely to ratify existing, less harsh punishments...but when schools start to flail around and play cute, the NCAA tends to punish them much more harshly. Enforcement at the NCAA would rather close these cases, than have a long, drawn out process. Think of it as a judge ratifying a plea deal...in many cases, it 'works out' for everyone.Honestly this is a dumb move by LSU. Self punishment won't get them anything.
I think they should be banned from playing in the NCAA. Unfortunately, the trial to prosecute these accusations will not come in time to declare such guilt on freak willy and LSU.I don't feel bad for the guy at all, but LSU basketball is destined to be trash no matter what the fall out is from this. And they were trash before Will Wade. Might as well ride the crazy train all the way to the end of this season. Can't hurt when they're likely gonna have to vacate wins anyways.
