LSU coach Will Wade said Monday night that believed USC would play the Tigers in Baton Rouge next season but it will probably not happen now.
“That has not gone the way we planned. That would be the nice way to say it,” Wade said. “Probably not this year for sure. Maybe the following year.
“The only time people lie more than in recruiting is in scheduling.”
Wade thought USC would come to Baton Rouge after he agreed to play USC at Staples Center last season. He obviously doesn’t know Andy Enfield’s history of not playing a good non-conference schedule.
This is where some apologist will say, “Hey, USC is playing Kansas next season!”
This is true. But why can’t you play both? That’s what programs that have top 5 recruiting classes do.
More importantly, how about you return the favor after a team travels to Los Angeles to give you a game that turned out to be one of your “quality wins.”
I’m sure Enfield thinks he is really sacrificing by playing Kansas, so he wants no part of LSU.
Can you imagine Enfield coaching at Michigan State? The Spartans played Kentucky, Seton Hall, Georgia, UCLA and Duke last season. Enfield would pass out if he ever played that schedule.
