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.

Ive been in a severe bar fight.  One where an ambulance is called, cops investigating etc.  The first thing i did when i got home was throw my clothes away at a gas station and take a shower. 

If this LSU kid is stupid enough to still have his shoes, he deserves to go to jail.  This is after getting lawyers, i gurantee you the lawyers advised their clients to get rid of the clothes they had on during the fight.

If he did kick a man on the ground, he should be kicked off campus and jailed. Period. I have talked to many fans of the team that feel that way. I would rather lose the game than cheer for an obvious heartless thug.


As for the shoes...you do know that every camp(like the Manning Camp) gives you shoes, right? Athletes who go to these camps, or bowl games, get free stuff that almost always includes shoes.

Im so sick of these baords, It really is like the Salom Witch Trials.

Did you mean Salem?  Or were you thinking of the infamous Shalom (Hebrew word for Peace) Witch Trials?  AKA the crucifixion of Christ.  

Or perhaps the Salon Witch Trials; AKA "Beauty Shop 3: Queen Latifah busts some Wiccan a$$"

So I have 20 pairs of shoes what's the point. When I played ball there were at least 4 or 5 guys with that many shoes. AAU kids get a new pair every tourny. The quinity of shoes Jefferson owes is no reflection of improper benifits. Im so sick of these baords, It really is like the Salom Witch Trials. People with a keyboard just spew whatever they want with no accountabilities. Im not saying he hasnt got paid before but to say "oh look 49 pairs of shoes he's getting benifits" is frustrating for the intelligent sports fans.

Got to love how niave some people are.  Where does it say that he was not selling them.  What kind of "athletic" shoes were they?  It doesnt specificaly say "football spikes given to him by the university for use on the field only", does it?  Hate to jump to conclusions but my feeling is that these shoes were either stolen or given by a booster.  Thats just the way big time college athletics works now adays.  I cant believe that people think everyone is so innocent.

Football players are allowed to keep a bunch of the gear they use dummies. He's been at LSU for 4 years. He's accumulated a bunch of gear. At least we know he wasn't selling the stuff, which IS against the rules; as you folks in Ohio and Georgia can attest to.
