    Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    Obviously, I want for Royce whatever Royce wants.

    However, deep down, I'm kinda selfishly hoping he isn't eligible this year. I don't think we are going to be very good, and I could see him scoring 30 some points a game and then opting for the NBA... even though the team would still finish near the bottom of the league.

    I really believe that next year could be special if Royce is here. I want to see that team... with Royce on it.

    Nope. I want to see him play now. I'm afraid if we have a bad year, and he is sitting on the bench he might think twice about playing professionally.

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    I honestly don't think there's anything good that can come from him being eligible this year.

    If he's not eligible this year, I'm not sure if he'll be around for next season. If he is eligible this season, I think he'll be around next year too.

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    if he has a chance to play in the NBA in a year, playing this year or not - he will get the same chance - maybe different pick but same chance. Hopefully he plays this year and if does, maybe he will opt for an additional year- I would be more worried about not sticking around if he can't play

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    "Selfishly"? Nope. I kinda think it would be better for him to settle into life and school without the spotlight of basketball for one season.

    Yep, if we are to have White for only one year on the court, I want it to be next year. I am worried though that we only get him one year, regardless of whether he sees the court.

    You mean ineligible this year, correct?

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    Just read an article somewhere that the collective bargaining agreement is up for the NBA after this season and it could cause the 1 and done guys to stick it out an extra year to ensure they get their $$$ vs. being left in limbo or not getting as good of a deal. If that is the case, would love to see Royce get this year and next year as well.

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    Nope, if we've learned anything over the past 10 years of Iowa State basketball, it rarely pays to have a player sit since more than likely they'll leave before they are supposed to anyway.

    If Royce is eligible this year, we thank our lucky stars and enjoy watching him play.

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    I want him playing this year. He is good enough to really have an impact on how good this years team is. If he goes crazy and scores 30 points a game then ISU will have a much better record than anyone expects. If he ends up going pro after that, so be it. If he plays this year and scores 12 points a game, he will not be a high NBA prospect, and will come back the next year to improve his standing.

    This.

    I want to see him play now.

    This team needs him to play now.

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    Instead of that we should all be hoping that the NBA collective bargaining situation breaks down and makes it look like a lock-down in imminent for the 2011-2012 season. Then he wouldn't be going anywhere anyway. Best of both worlds.

    Re: Does anyone else selfishly hope Royce White is not eligible?

    I want him as soon as we can get him. The upcoming recruiting classes are too good to not want to win now. I don't know about you but I think if HB saw any chance of our team being good while he was here, he may have chosen ISU.

    I want him to play now. I think he'll be around another year any ways
