    Lucca Staiger mention on SI website

    SI.com - SI On Campus - Dean's List (cont.) - Tuesday May 27, 2008 2:13PM

    • Michigan basketball has fallen on tough times. Following the Fab Five were the NCAA violations, the Steve Fischer exodus and the lean Tommy Amaker years. But things are looking up in Ann Arbor. Or are they? Wolverines' coach John Belein signed German forward Robin Benzing, a 6-foot-10 big man, who has been compared to Dirk Nowitzki. Unfortunately for Michigan fans, it won't be long before Benzing will be declared ineligible by the NCAA. Like fellow German prospects Lucca Staiger and Fabian Böke, who were also denied eligibility, Benzing played a season with professionals in Europe and while he didn't get paid, he's no longer considered an amateur. Too bad, Dirk would've looked good in maize and blue.
    I thought it was nice to see a "name" program get hit with it, so we don't feel like Iowa State is on some "second tier" to be getting the shaft in cases like this.

    I can't wait to see Lucca's name mentioned for his play on the court, not his bogus suspension.

    If you have ever been to Crisler Arena you would know. The place is a dump, attendance is poor, and all funds go to the football program. Until Michigan makes a serious commitment to their basketball program, it will remain a mediocre program in a mediocre conference.

    My thought exactly!! Don't underestimate the ability of the NCAA to let a big-name school weasel out of the appropriate punishment for a rules violation.

    So its similar to Iowa's BB program.
