    I'm not unhappy about this. IMO gives him a better chance to impact the program.

    In all seriousness, This just means that Maggit and Moore need to step up and take some responsibility.

    Re: Rony Nelson to redshirt 2010

    Why would he be required to red-shirt? I would think they would say he is required to sit out 2010 (effectively re-shirting.)

    That is my question as well. He took his class over the summer and passed. He has been ruled academically eligible so why would they force him to sit out a year? That makes no sense to me at all.

    Re: Rony Nelson to redshirt 2010

    could be a blessing in disguise. I like it when JUCO players are in the program for more than just 2 years.

    Re: Rony Nelson to redshirt 2010

    I also think this means he brings more of an impact to the team when he sees the field next year.

    I agree. He could replace Rashawn Parker with two years to play.

    Re: Rony Nelson to redshirt 2010

    I'm going to echo a couple of the posters above, why is he required to redshirt??
    I am not familiar with this particular scenario.

    Re: Rony Nelson to redshirt 2010

    I think that this has to do with the fact that he signed in the Winter but was deemed academically ineligible. This meant that he couldn't enroll for the spring at ISU thus causing some issues.

    Re: Rony Nelson to redshirt 2010

    It would of been nice to have him play this year and at least we can have him on the team for the future.

    Re: Rony Nelson to redshirt 2010

    There are sometimes conference rules that are bigger hurdles than being NCAA eligible. Nebraska had a basketball player a couple of years ago that enrolled before he was eligible. He regained his eligibility, but the ruling was that he could then enroll at any place other than Nebraska.

    At least Rony is cleared to attend ISU, but it has to be tough for someone in his situation to sit out a year. I hope that he is able to focus on school, continue to practice, and stick around to play next year.
