    Masoli-White

    Just heard on Murph and Andy that Masoli won his appeal and can play this year. Hopefully Royce can play this year.

    Re: Masoli-White

    It's a completely different situation.

    Masoli has graduated so he normally wouldn't have to sit out a year, the only issue was a rule around transfering after getting kicked off a team.

    White (obviously) hasn't graduated so the normal 1 year transfer rule may apply.

    I guess it's the difference between starting with sitting out 1 year and getting it reduced (white) and starting with not having to sit out and getting it added to (masoli).

    I'm still really not hopeful about White.

    White sat out last year. That's his only hope.

    I honestly see no correlation at all.

    Exactly....and its a slim hope.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: Masoli-White

    Even in the most absolute hypothetical, in which the Masoli-White cases were 100% synchronized, I personally believe that the NCAA would rule them differently. See, unlike a standard judicial system, that applies the principles of precedent, the NCAA is an arbitrary force that does things however they please.

    there is no correlation really, except that the NCAA originally said Masoli was transferring because of athletic reasons(doesn't everyone), not academic reasons, but then reversed themselves. I find it unbelievable that they would reverse themselves, first Will Barton now Masoli.

    It will all be how the committee "feels" for that day. Farnold Degand, sat out a year at Iowa State, we change coaches, he transfers and then sits out another year at new school. Eric Moreland redshirts first year at UTEP, they change coaches, NCAA allows him to be eligible immediately at Oregon State.

    They're both people. They both want to play this year in a collegiate sport. They each went to different schools last year than their current schools.
    That's really all these cases have in common.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I do. It means that the NCAA has met its quota for granted appeals this year, so White will have to sit.

    In all seriousness though, there is no correlation. But we ARE Iowa State, so I don't like our chances at winning this appeal.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"
