"No matter what it's always diappointing, it's always disappointing when student athletes don't behave up to the standards that you would like them to behave to, and that's what that this situation is we have right now, and we still have to let the justice system do their job." - said LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva
"People are innocent until proven guilty, and we're gonna continue to stick to that, I know them to be uniformly good people but they've gotten themselves into an interesting situation, and we'll see what the legal process does." - said LSU Chancellor Michael Martin
