    Well that would not surprise me entirely. 4 years is a long time to be away from your home country. Germany has some of the best Universities in the world, so education wise he won't be going backwards.

    Re: Rumblings about Lucca

    This is how it starts, someone throws out a "crazy" rumor such as Chizik interviewing at Auburn (why would they want him?) or Cael interviewing at Penn State (no way, he'd never bail on Iowa State!) and by the end of the day it's true. Crap.

    I know I know... I honestly thought about not even posting it, but this isn't a "crazy rumor." I just felt some might like to know. I'll probably get flamed for even posting it, but know that I'm not a guy that just throws crap out there.

    That would be suprising since he stayed after not being allowed to play.

    that suck if it is true. I don't think lucca is a starter in the big 12, but his shooting certainly make him bench worthy on just about any team. Is this why we picked up the oliver?

    Re: Rumblings about Lucca

    While this would be somewhat unfortunate,it's hardly the end of the world. I mean, what would we miss more? His bad defense or his bad ball handling? Yeah, he can shoot. But he's not and All-American level shooter. He's not even an All-Conference level shooter.

    That would be my guess, but Oliver is more of a 3 isn't he? We'll still have:

    Boozer, Colvin, Christopherson, and Garrett all able to play the 2 if this is in fact true.

    My understanding is that Oliver is a shooting guard that can drive and finish. His shooting is what has been highlighted with 45% from 3 pt range.

    Re: Rumblings about Lucca

    Lucca isn't a Big 12 starter. He's a come off the bench, hit a couple 3s, and go sit down type of a guy.

    He can't play D, he can't rebound, he can't ball handle, and he can't pass.

    All of that surprises me, because in Europe they focus on fundamentals so much. He's a role player that many on this board hyped up because he had to sit out a year.

    We could use him if he's coming off the bench. If he expects to be a starter the next 2 years, then I could see why he'd want to leave.
