    Wow. That is unbelievable. Nice core coming back, good recruits. Can't handle playing for Bill one more year, maybe?

    That is really too bad. I loved watching her play.

    Makes sense if she doesn't want to go to grad school.

    Sometimes people are just ready for the next phase in their life. If she has no intentions of getting a graduate degree, the extra year of scholarship isn't worth much to her, and if she is ready to be done playing it makes a lot sense.

    Definitely sucks for the basketball program, but good luck to her after graduation.

    Yep, probably just wants to move on with her life.

    Also lets face it it's not the easiest thing in the world playing for Bill.

    I hate to see her not come back but as tough as it has been on her physically, I can't be mad at her. She is getting her degree and not wanting to go for her masters hope she has a great career in marketing. She has been a very good player for us so good luck.

    Seriously? Selfish because she chose to do something she wants, whatever that is? What kind of logic is that where you think this is a selfish move?

    She has teammates that she will be letting down.

    She fulfilled her 4 year obligation on the team. She's not required to play the 5th year. Like someone said, maybe she's graduated and is ready to move on.

    Selfish was the furthest from my mind when I saw this.

    That's a big loss. She's our best player.

    Surprising and disappointing to say the least. She still seemed to be enjoying the game, but who knows. This year, she had finally taken her game to the Big 12 level, where she could win battles on the floor through toughness, tenacity, skill and knowledge. Seemingly just as she reached the point to see the fruit of her efforts at this level, there she goes. Bittersweet for fans who wish her well but enjoyed watching her get to this level and wanted to see more.

    I think the injuries are playing a big part. You can see she was playing with pain. Would you like to live with that for the rest of your life? She is a senior and I wish her nothing but the best. Do what is best for yourself and your future. Wish we would have had the chance to celebrate her like the others.

    Sorry, I don't think it's that simple, especially with the timing.

    Simple or not, the one thing it certainly is not is selfish (referring to the faux ISU fan's troll post above).

    She just wants to get a job and go on with life. A decent amount of football players do this, as most of them redshirt their freshman year. Being an athlete can suck, and especially womens basketball, it's not like she's going to be making the big bucks playing basketball somewhere.
