    Do you know this for fact, or are you guessing? Also, if Iowa State has evidence they are holding onto that would criminalize Bubu, don't they have to submit it the County Attorney as they are a public university? The charges were flat our dropped on Bubu, the County Attorney could refile charges with new evidence...

    of athletic scholarships available to the University.
    So youre saying if he decided to transfer away it wouldnt hurt? the only way it would of hurt ISU is if Bubu was suspended or just flat out failed to graduate?>

    re: Bubu Thread

    I am guessing. It doesn't make sense the amount of resistance that Bubu is getting when other athletes have gotten by with similar or worse things.

    That is why I think there are other issues at play

    One would think if there were other issues not in Bubu's favor, surely he wouldn't have appealed this to the Courts.

    Leath is single handedly going to ruin what is poised to be a great season.

    Along these lines, in 2005 the NCAA formulated a tool called the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) for Division I schools.18 GSR basically removes athletes who leave an institution in good academic standing from the denominator and adds those who transfer in and eventually graduate to the sample.

    I'm hoping that ISU is a little more mentally strong then that. If they are not, thats not on Leath.

    Prediction: Diane Stahle likely to "pursue other opportunities" in the near future.

    Regardless, why not make the decision in a reasonable amount of time which would have allowed the transfer.

    I think in the end, Fred is gone for the NBA due to this. Last week, Leath and Pollard basically forced Fred's hand to not allow Bubu to play with that statement. I believe them not allowing Fred to run his own program is going to be what pushes the NBA over the top.

    Pollard would not survive that.
    He wouldn't? The AD who has in his time at ISU managed to double the athletic budget, built a new basketball practice facility, built a new football facility, built a new sports complex for smaller sports by the towers, is pushing through the South Endzone project which has been talked about since the late 70's and never been done, is a highly respected AD among his peers, and the guy who was the voice of the Big XII AD's during the conference realignment mess? Ever heard Dodds from Texas defer commenting to anyone else on any issues besides declining to comment on Big XII AD discussions and directing all questions to JP? Anyone know who is credited with developing the fiscal plans at Wisconsin that have led to major budget increases, major facility upgrades, etc... that have now shown themselves in the Badger's rise to a higher level of athletic success? I'll give you a hint... He is the current AD at ISU. Strange how things have improved dramatically since he arrived at ISU right?

    People are losing their minds over this and forgetting the credibility that a guy like JP has earned over his relatively short time at ISU. His impact on the ISU athletic department is off the charts.

    This position, which seems to be prevalent here, is completely ridiculous. People need to settle the **** down.

    Exactly... because in the NBA coaches run the entire show and don't have to deal with front office people, GM's, owners, etc...

This whole thing is on Leath who waited to make his ruling, and with all the facts I see, he waited so ISU's APR was not hurt.
    Of course, what Bubu said is exactly what you say in the PR battle. Plenty of people "would have made the right call" in hindsight.
    Maybe Bubu would have transferred if things happened a week or two earlier, maybe not, but hindsight and PR play a role in those statements now.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
