    Fred Hoiberg statement

    Per Murph and Andy, Bubu will not travel to Texas and too early to comment on anything else.

    Re: Fred Hoiberg statement

    I will say I will lose alot of respect for Fred if he regurgitates the party line and doesn't let Bubu play.

    Bubu hasn't been on the team all year, the chances of him being Big 12 ready at this point I will guess are slim. We may see him with Ellerman against TCU or Tech.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    just wait to see how he handles it. From their tweets it looks like the players want Bubu back, and we all know how JP and Leath feel. He's in a tough spot and staying incredibly neutral and bland today is the best possible answer.

    Fred did the right thing. Too early to comment.

    Re: Fred Hoiberg statement

    What if Fred doesn't want him on the team for basketball reasons?

    I will lose a lot of respect if he plays Bubu. No good comes from it. He is a below average player, a distraction, and he needs to move on now. He brought this situation on himself, and it is no doubt a tough lesson to learn, but this nonsense of suing for your spot on team is pathetic.

    Why should Bubu be allowed back? Can't athletic programs kick players off teams without needing a legal reason? He still gets his scholarship, so why is the team be obligated to let him play/practice? What right does Bubu have to be there that I wouldn't have? Can I go to court to force them to let me join the team? I guess I wasn't aware you can legally force your way onto an athletics program.

    I still think JP is just covering his *** with his new boss. Otherwise, why did JP reinstate him in the first place? For all we know, JP and CFH (and maybe even Leath) have all worked out what they would say and what stance they would appear to take with each other. At least, I hope JP didn't blindside CFH in any way with his statement.

    In that case you let him on the team (he's already eating a scholarship after all) but give him the minutes you deem appropriate. Fred isnt going to put him out there if he doesnt think its the best option

    I'd say we all know how Leath feels. All we know about JP is what he said, but in this case I'd say it's possible that's not actually how he feels.

    You can when it becomes a legal matter, and the judge feels you were wrongfully removed in the first place. It's not like he is just trying to force his way onto something that he was not a part of before.
