    Anyone hear GMac?

    This morning on Cotlar (although it wasn't Cotlar doing the interview). He was talking about Lucca's appeal yesterday and sounded very optimistic. Said that Pollard and Lucca did a great job of pleading their case and they expect to hear some news by today. He even said that he was "hopeful." Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Great news, but until I see him on the court I'm not holding my breath. Can't take another let down!

    He's continually stated that they're "hopeful" throughout the whole process but I don't think he probably meant it as any new found hope because of yesterday.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    That's not true. I have heard interviews in the past where he says that he is hopeful but doesn't feel good about their chances. This was completely different. He actually sounded quite positive

    Also forgot to add that he thought the NCAA was going to get back to them last night with their decision. To me that is a very good sign

    That seems like an odd thing to say. Did they?

    I doubt the NCAA would've contacted JP or whats his name in compliance, and nobody immediately called GMac.

    Guessing they didn't (??)

    Well, that and what another poster said about Lucca and Pollard looking very happy last night - would somewhat make sense.

    I just know this much...I'm crossing my fingers and there is no way in hell I'm missing the game tonight.

    ISU could be rolling out the ultimate surprise this evening a little after 7.

    Re: Anyone hear GMac?

    NCAA would release something if there was a reversal to a ruling

    Re: Anyone hear GMac?

    I hope all this optimism is rewarded.

    But I have a hard time believing even if the appeal committee lowers the penalty, that they'll immediately reinstate him. Gut tells me he'd still be out a few games. Can't see the NCAA, or this committee, do anything that might even imply that the initial and first appeal decisions were unwarranted.

    Hope I'm wrong - I just see a round 15 games or non-conference slate, if any change at all.

    I was on the fence about going to the game, as this is a busy week, until this morning when I read that they might have an answer today. I will be there.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Re: Anyone hear GMac?

    Normally I agree but one of the ways they were planning to attack the ruling was to say that Lucca only played a certain number of games with the "professional" team after the rule was created. In order to avoid the ex post facto aspect of the suspension, I believe an eight game suspension would have been handed down. If so, Lucca would be eligible.

    That being said, I'm hopeful but have been an Iowa State fan too long to let myself really get emotionally up.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    They did not get back to them last night, but he thought they would. He probably would not have thought they would unless there is a very good chance they realize their ruling is wrong and decided to change it

    Well apparently it's true that he's said he's hopeful throughout the entire process. Whether he sounded positive or not wasn't something I was talking about. I heard the asst. coach talking today, is that who you're talking about? I don't think that him talking about expecting a ruling very soon is necessarily a good sign. I immediately thought "great, that means they're just saying "no" to us right away and that's that."

    Playing tonight? Doubt it. Maybe, if it's a positive outcome, the announcement will be made over the PA.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?
