    I've been hearing rumblings...

    That Hoiberg/Iowa State and Korie Lucious (MSU) have some mutual interest. Lucious was recently suspended for the remainder of the season at Michigan State for a violation of team rules - which I believe is the same reason Chris Allen was booted there.

    Korie Lucious Stats, News, Photos - Michigan State Spartans - ESPN

    He averaged 6.5 PPG this season as well as 4 assist per game. Has a 2.1-1 assist to turnover ratio, which is pretty good.

    Originally, I thought it was a joke. But some of the sources I'm hearing this from make this interest seem fairly concrete. I'm still not sure what the chances are that we bring him in, but who knows.

    He's a Junior this season, so I'm assuming he'd be like Chris Allen in that he'd have to sit out next season, then be eligible in 2012-13. I don't know for sure though, just thought I'd pass this information along.

    Personally, I'm not sure I like the move. We're beginning to develop a bit of a Transfer U reputation, but if it works, you won't hear me complaining.

    Look, if he can ball, great - bring him in. But what is it with us and Michigan St's leftovers lately?

    Not that I'm not all for this, but sooner or later taking these risks on these kids could bite us in the ***.

    Izzo is trying to make up for that tournament game that we won but they gave it to MSU.

    This would make sense scholarship wise. After next year we lose Allen and Scotty. This would bring in an experienced guard to go with the younger backcourt.

    Re: I've been hearing rumblings...

    Who gives a crap if we develope a transfer U reputation. The funny thing is we already have the transfer U reputation. Just this time it's for kids wanting to play for us instead of the other way around. I want to make the final 4 sometime. If we get there by taking great players from teams that they did not work great at then fine.

    Except you are forgetting that he would be here next year sitting out for transferring. We would be one over the limit again. At least thats how I think it would go.

    You say that like it's a problem. The more the better. I'm sick of getting these 4 year high school kids to come in here only to have them bail after their freshman year. Transfers from other DI schools are pretty much stuck to wherever they transfer to.

    Re: I've been hearing rumblings...

    Personally, I don't really care about this from a "will he keep his nose clean" kind of risk, because if he's a bad seed, I'm sure CFH will show him the door. I'm sure being removed from one program already will have an effect on him anyway.

    What I'm concerned about is the ROI in this deal. I assume he'd be on scholly during his redshirt year, then again the year he is eligible. That's a fairly hefty investment on a guy who is averaging 6.5 points as a Jr. I guess I don't know much else about him (is he a lock-down defender? can he be a backup PG?, etc.), but on the surface this seems to have very little upside to it.

    I'd rather be known as "Transfer U" rather than "bottom feeder" in the Big 12 as we've been known the last 5 years.

    I think a good thing about transfers is they are here a year before they play. Gives coaches a chance to see if they will conform before they are given a chance to represent the school.

    No, not really. I was commenting on the "But what is it with us and Michigan St's leftovers lately?"
