The investigation into what happened between LSU football players and others at a bar fight last Thursday night continues, and on Wednesday police were at the homes of four different LSU players, including Jordan Jefferson, searching for evidence. This after the Baton Rouge police interviewed the players on Tuesday, though no charges were filed.

What exactly were the police looking for in the player's home on Wednesday? Well, if Jordan Jefferson's bare feet are any indication, they were looking for some shoes. From our LSU Rapid Reporter Glenn Gulibeau:
Baton Rouge Police took the shoes off QB Jordan Jefferson's feet and 48 other pairs from his apartment during a search Wednesday night in relation to the ongoing investigation into Jefferson's and three other players' involvement in a bar fight last week, police spokesman Don Stone said. "Police seized 49 pairs of (athletic) shoes," Stone said.
That is a lot of shoes.

Police spokesman Don Stone would not comment directly on why the police were so interested in Jefferson's shoes, but he did say that the police usually look for blood stains on the clothes. There have been reports that one member of the LSU football team kicked a Marine in the face during the fight, though those reports have not been confirmed by the police.

As far as having all those shoes, it does not mean anything. These schools are sposored by companies like Nike and Reebok, they get all the shoes they need or want. Who cares how many shoes these guys have or how they got them. Does it really matter are all those extra shoes going to give LSU an advantage.

The guy got in a bar fight, are they really running DNA tests and shoe impression comparisons.

I tell you one thing if I was in a fight and knocked the guy down and he was getting back up I would give him a punt to the face. I wonder if it was just some drunk fans if they would be wasting thousands of tax payer dollars to investigate a bar fight.

This is a joke, yeah he should be suspended because he is an idiot for fighting but enough with bringing the CSI team into this.

What a punk. Sentence him to one month for every pair of illegal shoes this guy has. No starving student can afford $7 grand worth of shoes.

Who can afford 49 pairs of athletic shoes without a job? Are his parents wealthy?

A student athlete with 49 pairs of athletic shoes.  Once the police finish their investigation the NCAA should be right behind.  The only team that will be able to beat an SEC team for the title any time soon will have to step up the cheating game significantly, no wonder A&M wants in there's more money than the Big 12 and that's saying something.
