    Getting Lockett and Pelle would be great.

    I wonder how many threads about Pelle this will spark up.

    Man, just when I had hoped all the Pelle craze would go away, this will just spark another round of talks. I still think we have near zero chance of landing the kid, but this will just get it going again.

    So you would rather there be no talk of landing Pelle? I guess I like the fact that we still have a shot at him. He would be a HUGE addition to our class. Clearly he's a long shot, but if he visits, we're still in the running.

    I'm not expecting Pelle to qualify even if he did "commit" based on everything that has been said about him.

    Not getting my hopes up, but we'll see!

    Lockett to ISU....yes please!

    And if there is some new news about him visiting, hopefully that means there's a good chance he qualifies. Don't know why we'd waste our time if there close to a zero percent chance he could even make it on campus.

    Wisconsin restricting Uthoff from coming to ISU is very strange.

    How often are these kinds of appeals successful? And if he does appeal doesn't that mean that he is very interested in ISU?

    I don't know the answer to your questions regarding the appeals, but it would seem to me, if the NCAA gets involved, the only legitimate reasons for allow restrictions on transfer would be suspected tampering or future opponent.

    One thing to keep in mind on Uthoff, is that he could potentially walk on for a year I believe and then there receive a scholarship. Restrictions are only for receiving scholarships for 1 year. Depending on how badly he wanted to chose ISU, that may not be a deal breaker.

    Who hears such an appeal? Is it Wisconsin or NCAA?
