    Another Potential Transfer? (Not Really)

    I am still surprised that Floyd ever gave this kid a scholarship. I could see how it could have some recruiting upside but is it worth it to give up a spot for that?

    Re: Another Potential Transfer?

    I guess I look at it this way, lil' Romeo is worth a ton of money. You give the kid a chance to live his dream of playing college ball, in return, he donates lots of money to the program.
    If it doesn't work out this way, then you are correct, it was foolish to bring him in.

    Re: Another Potential Transfer?

    The article says he's best friends with DeMar DeRozan. If you have to offer this bum a spot in order to get someone like that, you do it IMO.

    What are you people talking about? This is idiotic. I open this thread thinking there is another possible transfer, and I read this crap? Nice job.

    Maybe money down the road but I don't see how a semi famous teen rapper that 90% of america couldn't name one of his songs or even know what he looks like would help with fans. Don't really see it as a recruiting benefit either, if I was a recruit I wouldn't give two bits if they had a no talent rapper who is also a no talent basketball player on the team, I would view it as a joke and a waste of a scholarship that could be used for someone that could actually help the team.

    Clone 11 is correct, this is absolutely idiotic to want him here.

    That makes more sense and would make it not such a crazy move.

    Sorry fellas, thought it was a semi-interesting story...didn't mean to ruin anyone's day/week/month. The chances of him coming in as a transfer are about the same as ISU bringing in White, I just don't see it happening and there has been no real smoke about it...just a few message board posts (Gopher site) that started with a guy thinking Iowa was interested.

    *I changed the title of the thread to hopefully prevent anyone from thinking this thread contains any real information (tried to anyway, not sure if it worked).*
