    CNN/SI gives ruling the Monday got Hose award.

    Don't know if anyone else saw this, but, here's a link to an article in CNN/SI about the ruling, unfortunately they only name the WSU player thats getting hosed and Staiger is under the same ruling....but at least its another realist out there that thinks the NCAA is gone absolutely mad for ruling in this manner but allowing Dogus Balbay to play at Texas....Oh yeah its texas!!!!!!!!!!!

    two links....

    The "monday, you got hosed" paragraph should be added to Freelucca.com. It says exactly what everyone is thinking.

    It mentions Lucca in the first sentence.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: CNN/SI gives ruling the Monday got Hose award.

    Here is the paragraph from SI on campus....

    We here at the Monday Awards Committee hate it when rules get in the way of better judgment. For that reason, we're giving the You Got Hosed Award to ex-Washington State basketball player Rabian Boeke, who has been banned from playing this season by the NCAA. Apparently, players on Boeke's high school team in Germany, but not Boeke, received stipends that the NCAA believes were beyond necessary expenses. They have therefore ruled that the team was a professional organization and have made Boeke ineligible to play for the Cougars this season. Here's a kid who played on the basketball team associated with his high school, who received no money, who did nothing wrong, but who will be punished nonetheless by an organization that seems to regard rules more than common sense.

    Wow, I can't believe the idiotic comments below that article.

    yep... they messed up


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I noticed that it says "ex-Washington State" basketball player. Did this kid quit the team and go back to Europe?

    Re: CNN/SI gives ruling the Monday got Hose award.

    I think the one thing that would **** me off the most is if Fabian Boeke gets reinstated due to the national media attention he's been receiving but they stick to their guns on the Lucca decision.

    Well, they got his name wrong too, so I wouldn't be surprised if the "ex" was a typo or error too.

    Re: CNN/SI gives ruling the Monday got Hose award.

    Is there an email somewhere for Jacob E. Osterhout that someone could write and tell him to correct the mis-spelled name and also include Lucca on it? Get your facts straight pal...

    Added. I sure wish he mentioned Lucca, though. And the fact that they misspelled the other dude's name doesn't exactly make the article reek with ethos, but whatever.
