(WWL.com) - New LSU Athletic Director Scott Woodward will be introduced to Tiger Nation next Tuesday and he’ll have some big calls to make right off the bat. Tiger Rag Editor James Moran says first on deck is what to do about now un-suspended basketball coach Will Wade, as a corruption trial the coach was set to testify at previously begins Monday.

“It’ll be interesting to see if Wade ends up having to testify, and if there will be any information coming out of that.”

Moran says you could see some change with the men’s basketball program and it’s corruption issues, and the women’s basketball team and it’s under performance, but there two coach who are to stay put for now, starting with LSU football…

“Ed Orgeron just got a contract extension before Alleva stepped down. Baseball, they’re pretty locked in long term with Paul Manieri, so he’s not going anywhere.”

Off the field the facilities saw some substantial upgrades under former AD Joe Alleva, but Moran says the biggest impact Woodward could have for fans day one is the ongoing battle of Tiger Stadium booze…

“I’m curious if Woodward takes up the same kind of vigor for there to be alchol sales in the stadium, because that was something that Alleva talked a lot about and laid at the feet of the SEC many times.”
