    Re: Should Bubu appeal President Leath decision to the BOR?

    I'm surprised by some people's willingness to believe someone who is known to have lied to police and created false evidence. I'm not saying what Bubu did was ok, but I guess I'm not sure how wrong it was. Sexual assault cases are extremely difficult to prove and when the alleged victim lies to police, she does harm to actual victims elsewhere.

    So tell me again how you know Bubu should be kicked off the team?

    Well he should have avoided putting himself in a situation like this. But hopefully he learned from it, and will continue to receive his education. Nothing can be done now that Leath has made the last decision. I'll respect his decision because I'm sure he knows more then any of us on here combined.

    You are wrong when you state that "Nothing can be done now that Leath has made the last decision" because any student or employee have the right to appeal to the Board of Regents a decision made against you by the university. If Bubu decides to appeal those 9 board members will review President Leath decision and take a vote (like at the supreme court) to confirm or overturn it.

    I'm real surprised more of you haven't gotten in trouble with a shockingly bad misconception of what consensual sex is.

    Re: Should Bubu appeal President Leath decision to the BOR?

    I am going to say no. Feel bad that Bubu's career ended way, but clearly there must have been some evidence that made the president overturn the ruling. I suspect that there was enough evidence to dismiss him from the team, but not enough evidence for the legal system to have a reasonable chance to convict him, or the prosecutor in the case thought it was unwinnable because of the victim's falsified evidence.

    I figure the judgement of the president of the university is sufficient for me.

    Like someone mentioned, its past the 20 day threshold to appeal Leath's decision.

    Re: Should Bubu appeal President Leath decision to the BOR?

    Bubu Palo tells The Tribune he is appealing ISU president Steven Leath's decision to remove him from the men's basketball team. Story coming

    Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Re: Should Bubu appeal President Leath decision to the BOR?

    I don't think the decision will be reversed. FWIW someone I know close to the basketball team said that they were surprised when Bubu was allowed to play on the basketball team again last year.

    Care to elaborate on why? Just because he was falsely accused of raping someone doesn't mean he shouldn't be on the basketball team.
