    Royce White eligibility decision this week

    According to RW, via a quote from Charley Waters (St. Paul Pioneer Press):

    White plans to move his belongings to Iowa State on Wednesday. He said his NCAA waiver request for eligibility this season will be made this week.

    I'd put the odds at between 1-2% of playing this year.

    I don't expect him to play this year and quite honestly I would rather have him for the 2011 season than this year anyway.

    Re: Royce White eligibility decision this week

    if he doesn't get an ok to play, isn't he going to Europe?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Does anyone really want to be that guy?

    Just saying, i want him more than anybody, but have to always keep all the options on the table. Even if there is a .01% chance of him leaving, still need to be prepared for it.

    I think you misread this, the submission to NCAA will officially go in this week was my read. While it seems simple, it is an involved process to produce the documents the NCAA requires in these cases, that includes information/statements from third parties for which ISU doesn't control the timing.

    The quote in the story is "He said his NCAA waiver request for eligibility this season will be made this week."

    Exactly why I keep a machete and a blender nearby at all times. You never know when you will be attacked by zombies or be asked to make a margarita.

    We all know how quick the NCAA is to put a stamp on ISU submissions.

    I'm feeling good about Royce's chance to play this year. I'm forecasting Mostly Sunny Skies!

    That machete will be the death of you. Way too bloody and close range of a weapon. Zombie blood will infect you, no question about it.

    Or be asked to make margaritas by zombies.
