    ESPN quote from Royce White

    NCAA rules Iowa State transfer Royce White ineligible - ESPN

    Didn't see this anywhere else, but it might have been posted before.

    ""I am disappointed with the decision," White said. "I am extremely happy with my decision to be a member of the Iowa State basketball team. It's my goal now to help this team any way I can during this season and prepare myself to be contributor on next year's team.""

    Re: ESPN quote from Royce White

    Good attitude. Hopefully he sticks with it. Could be a very valuable member of the team next year.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: ESPN quote from Royce White

    Leave it to the NCAA to allow players that got paid to only miss a few games, but players who made a stupid mistake that many people make sit out a full year.

    I'm looking at you kansas.

    Re: ESPN quote from Royce White

    Kansas had a player a few years ago that took $6,000 and they suspended him 6 games. Then the kid this year took money and only has to set out a few games. THe NCAA is great if your a big sports player.

    I would love to see enough schools break away from the NCAA to have a viable alternative, but I doubt it would ever happen. The whole system is corrupt.

    Re: ESPN quote from Royce White

    That quote sounds like he has probably matured quite a bit. If he really believes what he said, he'll be here in 2011-12 and ready to lead.

    I'm hoping for the best. Would love to see you next year on this team Royce!!


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    Am I missing a reason as to why he shouldn't have to sit out this year?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I believe he has never played...... or did he?

    "White, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound native of Minneapolis, signed with Minnesota for last season but never played a game for the Golden Gophers."

    So maybe he should have transferred last year and sat out last year. But he didn't transfer until this year. He now has to sit out this year. I don't get all the ********...

    "I don't get all the ********..." says it all.... How many other "violations" have other schools had but yet they got to play. I am a little confused with the word "Violation" I dont understand how this would be a "violation".

    Exactly, I don't see how this is a 'violation.' I thought it was due to him transferring, that he had to sit out a year. Like most all transfers.

    Re: ESPN quote from Royce White

    I don't think it's so much an unfair treatment of Royce as it is how the NCAA handles guys like Selby, etc.

    The amount of time it took to get a ruling on Royce was ludicrous as well.

    Re: ESPN quote from Royce White

    It wasn't any "violation", ISU was trying to get the year he has to sit out because he transferred waived since he never played a game at Minnesota
