    Bates watches Nebraska play

    Anyone else just wonder even a little bit if he might be thinking of transferring and wanted to check out a school this weekend? No not the home team Nebraska, but VT?

    OK. 95% of me knows that is a crazy thought, but the other 5% made me sick.

    95% of me thinks we already have one idiotic thread on this or at least a related topic. Couldn't this question have been merged with that thread so we didn't have to deal with two such threads?

    I think VT is alright at QB for the next few years now...

    Re: Bates watches Nebraska play

    I actually could see him thinking about kNU. He'd sit out Ganz senior year and then have 2 years left. I doubt he'd be thinking about VT since they have a really good frosh QB in Tyrod Taylor. With every series that he doesn't get to play I think this becomes a more likely scenario.

    I went to Iowa City one weekend during the summer to hang out with some friends...does this mean I want to be a Hawkeye or think of transferring schools? HELL NO

    It's nearly impossible to transfer in-conference.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure players have to sit out the normal one year for a transfer, but they also lose that year of eligibility for in conference transfers. Plus, Iowa State would most likely not release him to specific schools like with Wesley Johnson.

    Again, I'm guessing this is a complete non-issue anyway....just people bored at work with nothing else going on (like me!)

    Re: Bates watches Nebraska play

    Coaches hardly ever release a player to the same conference, or a team they play in the near future

    Re: Bates watches Nebraska play

    If Bates was there, perhaps he was watching some old team-mates/friends from his highschool that are on NUs roster.

    Also what other major schools game is he logistically going to be able to see? NU is about it, as far as nearby traveling goes.

    Most obviously he was there to watch Paul, but I just felt like ruffling some feathers.

    Doesn't that essentially equate to trolling?

    Anyone know what colors he was wearing there? If he didn't have ISU gear on, we're doomed. /sarcasm

    Probably. I just hadn't seen a post on that topic and figured way too many people would freak on it. Some of you guys take message board life way to serious.
