    Good story on Coach Otz and Alison Lacey

    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    Good story and judging from the pic, I'd say TJ is 'trading up'...

    Just curious though, the way the story reads - did she date Brackins in college??

    I didn't really understand why he was included in the story. It seemed like they were looking for any link they could find to connect them.

    I think Craig was just someone who knew both of them and helped make the connection. Didn't Brackins date Bolte for a time in college?

    Yeah, but this line had me wondering: "They didn’t speak, however, until Lacey said goodbye to Brackins."

    Maybe they were trying to make it REALLY clear that they didn't date until she was finished at Iowa State.

    There have been some interesting Iowa State WBB relationships :)

    ...then don't you think it would make more sense if the writer phrased it: "they didn't speak until she finished at Iowa State" ? dooh

    My thoughts exactly. "We gotta try to misdirect the readers so they don't think a 30-some year old coach isn't creeping on students."

    Age is no thing, but technically he is an employee and if she were a student this wouldn't be any different than a Chemistry prof strikignitnup with a student in Gilman hall they've seen throughout the semester.

    I don't know all the stories, but there have been a couple players that have gotten close to coaches/staff, correct?

    Except for he really has nothing to do with her classes or basketball. I don't see any real issue even if they had started dating when she was playing. It's not like he was 50. He's 35 now so there's only about a 10 year difference or so. To me, once you hit 21 or 22, the age thing is almost irrelevant.

    Cut off = (age/2) + 7

    He is cutting it close.
