    "Bubu Palo will never play D1 basketball", I'm glad he proved everyone who said this wrong.

    By playing in an exhibition game?

    I think you took what people said (even I) to the extreme. I said and still say that he will never be a guy in which we rely on for big minutes. He will get PT in blow out games and nothing more.

    And that is how it should be. He is a walk on. It is great to have quality walk ons

    Not sure what you have against walk-ons. You do know that walk-ons have made it to the NBA right?? I hope he proves you wrong.

    Maybe you didn't say he wouldn't, but a lot of people on here did. And how many Iowa High School basketball players have played 1 second on a D1 team. The people who said this were still flat out wrong. The level of competition has nothing to do with the team he is playing ON.

    He should be aware of what absolutist statements look like. It looks negative, and there is no need to be negative.

    Lots of things don't happen like they are "supposed to." Top prospects will be busts, and there will be diamonds in the rough.

    I think that he'll only get PT in blow outs this year (if he doesn't redshirt) and next year. But I could easily see him getting major minutes as an upperclassman.

    Leave the guy alone..from what I've heard he is a stand up guy and at least he is on the roster at a d1 school. That is a lot more than most of us on here can say.

    How does my comment come off as me being against walk-ons? I am simply stating facts. I love walk-ons and think they are extremely important to the success of a team with how hard they compete in practice.

    With that said this isn't the 80's anymore. Walk-ons don't go to the NBA and 95% of the time they never see meaningful PT in major college basketball. That's just the way it is. Times change. AAU ball and recruited is much bigger and kids don't go unnoticed like they used to

    check your definition of "fact"

    I know you probably aren't trying to be negative, but just think about the way your declarations might be perceived... players see this stuff. That is all.

    Walk ons don't play meaningful minutes for Major college basketball teams that are successful. FACT. Not an opinion

    Do some research before you call me out for doing nothing more than stating a fact. I am in no way ripping Bubu or walk ons. Like I have said 3 times I love walk ons and their importance on a team. We had walk ons playing the last couple years so people here thing it is the norm....IT IS NOT

    Also since you are calling me out, please tell me the last walk on to make it in the NBA.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
