    ...Norvel Pelle qualifies and wants to be a Cyclone, what should Fred do?

    (As long as we're speculating, I figured that we may as well be positive!)

    Not even a remote chance. Fred already knows Pelle is not qualifying otherwise he would not given up the scholly on bubu

    False. He knew that the 2 schollies would not be for any combination of the 4:

    Lockett
    Uthoff
    Pelle
    and now Finney-Smith

    So far, Lockett is out, and Uthoff and Pelle are more than likely out.

    But yeah, basically Fred knew what he was doing.

    If it comes down to the point where DFS commits somewhere else and Pelle SOMEHOW qualifies and we still have a scholarship... I say screw it lets risk it and give it to Pelle. I mean if ya wanna win ya gotta take some risks.

    Or cheat like everyone else and give him a scholly anyway. Seems to work great for Marquette

    Sure you can, if you want to. If Pelle qualifies and wants to come here, I'm sure he could present it to Bubu in a palatable manner. As I've said before, Pelle is a game changer with his size athleticism, someone who could be the difference between going to the NCAA's vs. the NIT. At this point, you have to establish the program with consistent winning seasons and NCAA appearances.

    He's not athletic enough to take the risk.

    If you can land both, you pull Bubu's. He walked on knowing what he was getting into. You don't pass on a one and done type player who would be a huge asset to this team because you feel bad for a walk-on.

    Now the situation more than likely wont arise so it doesn't matter. But I'd love it if we landed both.

    I 100% disagree, expect for the fact that the situation won't happen.

    We are not taking the scholarship away from Bubu, it will not happen, and I do not want it to happen. I'm not going to be selfish and take away free college from someone, when we promised him free college. If I would much rather pelle qualifies, goes to another college, and excels, then take away a scholarship from a true cyclone.

    This situation simply isn't going to happen, so this is a completely pointless argument.

    Agree. The toothpaste is already out of the tube regarding Bubu next year. If Fred wouldn't have already publicly said Bubu was getting one that would be another thing.
