    Our team will be better for this.....

    The guys we have on this team now are here for the team. Lucca was obviously only at ISU for himself and frankly it showed on the court. Get these dbags out of here that don't care about the team and give me seven scholarship players that want to do whats best for the team. WE WILL be better off because of this.

    Coach McD: Keep the suspension on Colvin to teach him a lesson, see what Oliver can do, and pull together this team with the situation we're in. This is our turning point.

    And for those of you blaming the player turnover on McD: You're dead wrong. I don't support McD alot and disagree often with his coaching style, but I will say from a former collegiate athlete myself, if you commit to a school, coach, and team.....you should do exactly that. And while you're at that school you do whatever is best for the team. Sure there are plenty of circumstances that would be understandable, but Lucca, Wesley, Taylor, and the suspension of Colvin are not of that kind. Lucca, Wesley, and Mike Taylor were at ISU for themselves/launching pad for other things. Colvin needs to realize that he will be at his best if he does what is best for the team and soon. And I for one didn't like the fact that coach McD was on the fence about pulling Colvins suspension because of this. Coach: stick to your guns and carry out the suspension.

    Good Bye Lucca.....ISU is better off with out you and I'm sooooooooo excited for Scotty C to get more minutes. Come on Scott, make us forget about Lucca starting at TT.

    I want Scotty to drain 11 threes tomorrow. Wouldn't that stick it to the doubters?

    we are not "better for this". we have like 7 available scholarship players. do you really think we will be "better" when dudes like alex dohr take the court in big twelve games because all our depth has either gotten hurt, left, is currently suspended, or been kicked off the team? sorry, but you're completely wrong

    Yes, ultimately, ISU will be better off, because somebody with a fragile personna and limited skills and who clearly had other things on his mind for some time now has left. McDermott and the team don't have to *****-foot around him anymore. Anything that gets this team tougher helps, because toughness is needed for the Big 12.

    It will hurt to lose Lucca's hot streak ability. I like SC's hustle and defense better though. Let's ban together. Now is the time for others to step up.

    Re: Our team will be better for this.....

    I guess when I think about it, we lose a good three-point shooter (when nobody guards him). That's pretty much it.

    He has all of 3 offensive boards for the year. 1.8 total boards per game. 1 block. 9 steals. 25 assists with 24 turnovers. A whopping 12 free throw attempts for the year.

    I guess if somebody was going to pay me for that kind of production, I'd probably go, too.

    Hopefully Christopherson gets more minutes. He has similar numbers to Staiger with 5 fewer minutes per game.

    This is what boggles my mind the most. It is reported in one of the other threads that he has a 6-figure offer on the table. How???

    Didn't we ask the same question just over a year ago with a certain football coach. That worked out well in the end.
