    Will Wade will not testify in Christian Dawkins trial

    https://247sports.com/college/lsu/A...n-Dawkins-LSU-basketball-FBI-trial-131346530/

    LSU head basketball coach Will Wade will not take the stand on Monday to testify in the federal trial with former basketball consultants Christian Dawkins and Merl Code, federal judge Edgardo Ramos ruled on Friday, Law360 reporter Pete Brush tweeted. In the pre-trial hearing, the New York judge said when ruling on whether or not to allow Wade and Arizona coach Sean Miller to testify in the court that the testimony would be "irrelevant" to bribery charges against Dawkins and Code.

    Federal prosecutors successfully blocked the attempt by the defense attorney to have the two coaches take the stand, which prevents Wade from having to take the stand and potentially answer tough questions about recruiting conversations captured on FBI wiretaps that led to his over month long suspension from LSU. With the testimony not admissible, it's a boost to Wade's footing with both the school and NCAA officials.

    So now he sues for defamation or does he take the high road and demand consequences for the defense for illegally leaking ?

    Bird flying south for winter, had a late start and wings iced over. Bird fell to the ground helpless. After time, was about to die from cold when a cow walked by, shit on the bird. The heat from the shit was warming the bird up. As he was about warm enough to take off, he chirped with joy and a cat heard him, and ate him.

    Moral of the story: If you’re warm and happy in a pile of shit, keep, your mouth shut.

    I think he got lucky, it's not like Wade was innocent, better to stay mum, let the commotion settle down,.. I'm afraid you guys are going to be hearing, "another strong-ass offer" everytime Wade signs a recruit

    I'm just wiseacreing here, everyone, feel free to correct me...

    Wade wasn't under investigation, the wiretap was for the guy at the other end of the phone line.

    In the FBI matter, the judge disallowed Wade's testimony as irrelevant, so he doesn't have to admit or lie about anything, that's very good for him and not bad for LSU either. An NCAA investigation is a different matter, but I haven't heard anything about when or if that will happen.
