    Since we signed Bluford I'm pretty sure he is replacing Jones' scholarship for the next two years. Unless they know someone is going to transfer at the end of this year right now I highly doubt that he will be staying at Iowa State. Plus keeping him would take away a scholarship for a class of 2014 player.

    I think Scott Drew put in a call to the NCAA.

    That has to be it. I don't see any way that he stays around.

    I just don't see us giving him a scholarship for 2.5 years(Jan 2013-May 2015), to play 1 year(2014-15 season)...even if they do know that someone is transferring. To be honest I don't think any of our freshman guards are going to transfer. We lose 4 guards after this season. There will be plenty of opportunity for Okoro and Naz to earn minutes next season. If they don't play much next year then I could see them transferring after next season. Not after this season though.

    Odds are there will be one more transfer. That is just the law of averages in college basketball

    Agreed. It's just not good business to tie up 2.5 years to get 1 season like that.

    I thought we'd be OK anyway. I definitely think we'll be OK now.

    Re: BREAKING: Maurice Jones not eligible

    Besides Kerwin who would transfer? With the relationships he seems to have built I don't even see that as possibility. I'd say the odds are there will not be a transfer.

    I'm sure that he's not.

    Bubu, Naz and Morris. We've been in far worse shape than that before.

    Re: BREAKING: Maurice Jones not eligible

    I can't believe how many people on here think Morris will be starting. Don't get me wrong I am super excited for him, but starting in the B12 as a freshman and being productive is near impossible. Anyone remember Chris Colvin? Not saying Morris will be like him, but it's tough to play as a Frosh in the B12 at the pg position. I think Bubu starts all season with both Naz and Morris spelling him.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
