    SOURCES: John Lamb information

    As most of you have seen by now, the Ames Tribune has reported that Iowa State walk-on John Lamb was arrested last night. Here's the link.

    Go Cyclones - Lamb arrested

    I'm sure that the story is credible. Bobby is a great reporter.

    However, multiple sources are telling me that Lamb hasn't been a part of the Iowa State men's basketball program for months. After last season, it was known by both parties that Lamb wouldn't be a part of the program going forward. That includes the 2011-12 Iowa State men's basketball season.

    So yes, a former Iowa State walk-on did get arrested last night. But no, a current member of the men's basketball program didn't.

    Re: SOURCES: John Lamb information

    OK, why can't someone from ISU just come on the record and say that Lamb hasn't been part of the team then? Chris, you say "multiple sources," and LaGesse says an "Iowa State official."

    Right. Interesting. I would think someone would gladly go on record and say he isn't part of the program. why wouldn't they. It makes the program look better to say the kid isn't a member of the team.

    Haha it's like clock work with you. Why would Fred Hoiberg comment about an EX walk on getting in trouble with the law? Did Dan McCarney comment when Terrance Highsmith got busted after he got done at ISU?

    I'm pretty sure that he was still practicing with the team in mid-March...I'm with you that it is strange there hasn't been a definitive statement.

    But you'd think there would be a statement that he is no longer a part of the team-- as there is whenever any player leaves the program.

    Maybe not since he was a walk-on and was under no financial obligation to the school or team.

    I can't ever think of a time that a walk on left the football team where the staff has made an announcement about it. Doesn't happen

    That's football, a sport with, what, a 70 man roster or so? Basketball teams have 15 guys, its newsworthy when one leaves, even if he didn't stand to have much playing time. You are probably right that these events don't get announced, but it does seem strange to me that no words about his departure came out until this occured.
