    Re: Arlen transferring to

    On the surface, it would appear that she's transferring for more playing time and to be a bigger fish in the pond, or perhaps somewhere that is a better fit for her abilities.

    Now, we wait for posts telling us how BF's tough coaching style has scarred her emotionally and runied her for major college competition...

    I wish her all the best. I have absolutely no problem with a player deciding Div I basketball isn't for them.

    What I don't understand is that she probably would have started and played 25 minutes a game next year at ISU.

    It's not about playing time. Div I basketball is hard, demanding work and it sounds like she decided it wasn't for her.

    Re: Arlen transferring to

    I'm amazed at how these student athletes do it. You have the time devoted to their sport and have to keep up with the school work as well. I know I couldn't do it. Good Luck to Ashley, and Alexis & Claire as well.

    Most transfer because of intrinsic reasons. I don't understand it, but she does. Good luck to her.

    I feel the same way...I wish, for selfish reasons, that she was staying at ISU...but if she feels it is best for her to pursue other options I will do nothing but hope for good things for her.

    People who harbor grudges against players just for leaving have issues that go beyond just being a fan. The successes of the teams we root for are not as important as the overall happiness of the individuals.

    Re: Arlen transferring to

    Wayne State?!? What a drop off.

    She would have been a major player this coming year in the Big 12 for ISU....this is really bewildering.

    Good luck to her however.

    Re: Arlen transferring to

    One of the assistants that sat with us at Cy's House of Trivia said she would have started next year. She also kinda impied that Arlen was having a hard time handling the pressures of playing at this level.
