    Bubu reinstated

    Chris Williams ‏@ChrisMWilliams
    Iowa State release: Bubu Palo reinstated to basketball program. All charges dropped. #Cyclone

    Per numerous tweets, including Chris Williams

    I see him working back into the rotation in a couple weeks and helping this team with some needed depth at the point guard spot

    Great! Great for Bubu both personally and for his basketball career of course.

    Re: Bubu reinstated

    I am so unsure about this. Sure Bubu was cleared, but I think this brings on just bad press. I was a college student recently, and no one with good intentions picks up a college girl in his car that he doesn't know.

    What the hell are you talking about? Bubu knew this girl way before he picked her up. She texted him for a ride.

    Sorry I didn't follow the case as deeply as you. Something about the whole situation just seems fishy.

    I didn't follow it deeply either. However, I did read newspaper articles.

    ...based on what? Keep in mind, you've already admitted that you didn't follow the situation, and got an important detail (that Bubu knew his accuser) completely wrong.

    Re: Bubu reinstated

    Fred can almost just treat this like last year when he was injured. Slowly work him back in, pick the spots where he thinks Bubu can help and hopefully he provides a bit of a spark when needed.

    I followed it enough to know that the situation isn't a good one. There was no trial, because evidence tampering. Doesn't mean that something didn't happen. He was hanging around with a shady character, picked up a girl... and the rest no one knows. I wish it would have went to trial before I make my judgement of "he's free! ISU basketball!!!!". People are way too quick to just say "good for him".

    That's ridiculous. Both the statement and the fact that you want to end some apparently innocent man's bball career for picking up a girl in his car.

    Um, that's about all I did in college, just not necessarily in my car! And who the hell says he has to have good intentions? Maybe she didn't have good intentions! It's college.... Hey, we're all gonna get laid!
