    Non WJ: Lucca

    Ok, so this is still a pessimistic thread, but about a different player. I think someone touched on this briefly before the happenings yesterday but it has since been lost in the meltdown. Am I the only one who is worried about Lucca playing in Germany this summer? I mean, really? We're going to try that again? Are we sure there aren't any "professionals" involved this time? Seems risky to me...

    Re: Non WJ: Lucca

    Something positive HAS to happen for us. It just has to. We have been getting the crap kicked out of us as a fanbase.

    I am not worried about Lucca's honor or integrity. He proved himself with his ordeal last season. The only thing to worry about, IMO, is the NCAA Amateurism Certification Committee sniffing around again. I don't doubt that they wouldn't hesitate to slap another suspension on him. "Ooh, sorry, told ya so, buddy."

    Are we sure there are no Ky scouts in Deutschland?

    I would think they've learned from their mistakes and will make sure there are no wrong-doings as viewed by the NCAA.....

    That's what everyone thought last time, too.

    You guys are funny. This is just par for the course for ISU. Wait till you have been watching this for 20 years, repeated over and over. It's no big deal :)

    Re: Non WJ: Lucca

    Lucca is playing for the Under 20 National Team I believe. I do fully realize this does not mean the NCAA doesn't have a chance to screw us over, but I think with what happened last year that Coach Mac, JP, and Lucca all had it cleared with the NCAA before they let him go to Germany to play. Atleast, I would hope so....

    After the huge ordeal last year, there's no way they send him to play with even a stench of foul play going on.

    I made a post about ayear ago about the same thing. I got blasted for it. Some agreed. When your older and an Iowa State fan. You expect this to happen. If it don't then you are shocked. That is just the way it works at State. Get used to it.

    I'm worried about him going over there and not wanting to come back.

    I think this is a bigger fear than his eligability...
