    Class statement from DG, about a classless act.

    Re: DG: "I still love Lucca like a brother"

    The beginning of this story is crap and we all know it. We reinstated him because Lucca left, plain and simple. If he hadn't, he'd still be suspended. Then he says that later on? What a contradicting story.

    One thing I've noticed in the player's quotes after Lucca left and after Wes J left is that there seems to be a little more anger/disappointment/confusion after Lucca decision. This is GOOD in my opinion. When Wes left it was more 'we understand' etc, now it is more 'I don't understand, I'm sad, I'm disappointed'.

    Regarding WJ

    I don't know for sure (I know it was stated that the players didn't know), but I have a suspicion a few of them had an idea.

    Regarding Lucca

    I think the surprise was coming during the season, but expected as well.

    Just my opinion...

    That's what McDermott said in the article. Not sure where you're getting your contradiction.

    Re: DG: "I still love Lucca like a brother"

    Iowa State guard Chris Colvin learned his lesson. That’s why Iowa State coach Greg McDermott reinstated Colvin two weeks before his suspension could end.

    McDermott said if the Cyclones weren’t dealing with an assortment of injuries and guard Lucca Staiger leaving the team, Colvin would still be suspended.
    I wasn't trying to comment on GMAC, just a badly written story.

    Re: DG: "I still love Lucca like a brother"

    Ok, so..................... Colvin learned his lesson before his suspension was completed and was reinstated.

    BUT......................................................................"McDerm ott said if the Cyclones weren’t dealing with an assortment of injuries and guard Lucca Staiger leaving the team, Colvin would still be suspended."


    So.......................It's not like he was reinstated solely based on Colvins supposed lesson learned then.

    I think a lot of us saw Lucca not staying his full term to go play pro in Germany, but like you said, the shock is that he'd leave in the middle of a season. That says a lot about who he is...you don't just abandon a commitment like that. How can anyone trust him as a teammate after this?

    That's what I was getting at. I think the Lucca thing did catch them off guard (or they are just that much better at sticking to the talking points now!). And I think it kind of flies in the face of the notion that these guys don't care about winning. If they are disappointed then they clearly want to win.

    I had no inkling before all this went down that it was a done deal that he would be leaving at the end of the year.

    Brackins has also been quoted that he still considers Lucca "a friend."

    Perhaps, how close could be debated.

    So.......................It's not like he was reinstated solely based on Colvins supposed lesson learned then.

    No one said he was.

    I look at it this way:

    If Colvin had still been behaving like a jerk/bad teammate, etc then he WOULD NOT have been reinstated on Wednesday, if Lucca had left.

    But because he had done all that was asked of him to this point, then it gave McDermott the option of getting him back.

    I was interested in McDermott mentioning he had talked to Chris' dad about the situation. I was under the impression that we should be kind of worried about people in Chicago regarding Chris. Hopefully, everyone is on the same page and whatever school they want him at instead of here is full for next year.
