Tigers' fans are celebrating LSU's victory Saturday in the SEC regular season title game, though many are still upset about the Friday suspension of Coach Will Wade.

LSU easily beat Vanderbilt 80-59 at the Maravich Center and they did it without Wade's involvement. His indefinite suspension came after reports of FBI wiretaps that allegedly captured Wade speaking by phone with a man convicted of making illegal payments to the families of college basketball recruits.

Wade was suspended by university officials after he refused to speak with them about the reports, leading fans at the game to hold up protest signs, one of them reading "Free Will Wade."
