    I hope that I'm wrong, but I have a feeling that the game will be closer than we want to think.

    Re: If the bench is cleared against TCU...

    That will be interesting to see... if we do get the chance to clear the bench.

    If we're up by 20 late in the game, and we're playing basically everyone, but Bubu does not get in the game, then I think we all know that he will NEVER see the court again as an ISU basketball player. It would basically tell us that Fred has been told that Bubu is not to see the court IMO.

    Re: If the bench is cleared against TCU...

    I thought this thread was about a big brawl prediction during the game.
    I tend to agree with the people who are saying the game will be a little closer than we would like to think.

    I can see it being like the OU game last Sat. Maybe TCU will pull within a tie with us in the second half, but then ISU will put it away. I doubt ISU will win by 20, just b/c the way the end of college ball games end, with all the time outs, and fouls. Maybe ISU will be up by 9 points and TCU will start to foul and prolong the game.

    Interesting thing about Bubu....He may be black balled by Pollard. However, I would think he would give the team good minutes for the team...Remember he basically won the OU game in KC last year when Lucious could not hit the broad side of a barn. But this year, he would be behind Kane and Morris.

    That's what I'm fearing as well. It would be a shame because I think he could provide us with some very meaningful minutes that would help the team. But Leath and JP have it out for him, so I'm sure they have told Fred their feelings on this.

    Just VERY hypocritical of JP IMO to not let Bubu play when he's let convicted felons suit up and start for the football team time and time again. Sad.

    Good point! Honestly never put it in this perspective.

    But still, I see it hard for him to try to compete for minutes at PG with Man Man and Kane.

    I don't think it is JP, but Leath, pulling the strings.

    Agree, Leath made the decision, JP is just standing behind it

    Re: If the bench is cleared against TCU...

    This thread begs for a poll.

    My guess though is no. Barring injuries or some really strange foul situation, I don't think we will see Bubu in a game again. At this point, I think (and hope) ISU just wants this whole thing to die without much more attention. It would not surprise me if they and the BOR pull out of any further court action and I think they should do that.

    Re: If the bench is cleared against TCU...

    You all are delusional. Leath and JP both said the decision is up to Fred if he wants to play Bubu or not, but keep blaming away.
