    I think the post talking about the redshirt was alluding to the idea that it was rumored that he really didn't want to redshirt, so playing time in general is an issue to him. We know he can't redshirt, it is maybe that he wants to be on the court now, and isn't as much as he would like.

    I would bet homesickness is a part of it, but maybe the kid just isn't a fit for a big university. I can totally see that. He may want to be a big fish in a little pond, which is not going to happen at ISU. My guess is that he will transfer to a D2 school.

    He could be redshirted if he was injured and needed a medical redshirt. That might explain why he hasn't touched the floor the past couple games, especially against Drake.

    Speaking of homesickness, I guess I am getting a little sick of having 40 different people on rhe team in the last five years. Reminds me of the song This Door Swings both ways.

    How can you have a good team when you are constantly recycling recruits? You recruit Iowa kids like Brock, Vette, and Ross, and you end up with Alex from another school. The door is swinging.

    Must be a gal friend. Why not a gal friend problem? Curtis and Willis had that problem.

    That could be true but I would suspect that we would have heard something in the last 3 weeks about this. He is not playing for other reasons. Reasons that I, or 99% on this board now w/o speculating

    Economics Teacher: Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
    Simone: Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.
    Economics Teacher: Thank you, Simone

    Wait, what? This whole thread is speculation. No one really knows, and we're basing all of our speculation off a rumor. The rumor may or may not pan out, but right now I think very few people "know" anything. Pure speculation.

    Yeah, speculation just like Brister, Ross, Adam, P'Allen, Tasheed, Cutrtis, Will, Tags, yada yadda.

    At end of season it might be easier to name the players who are staying.

    Help Wanted signs abound.

    I had one person tell me and another unconnected person ask me if I know. The two people don't know each other and both have connections with the team. Jeremy later chimed in with what he knew.

    In the future, I'll try and keep this stuff to the mods, I guess.

    18-19 year old kids are hard to figure out. They change their mind when the wind blows. Speculation on why someone is leaving is rather pointless. It won't change the situation.

    If its true, you have to do what my dear ole grandpappy said....."Time to make lemonade out of LA POMLEE-mons!!"

    Any rock-solid ideas on where he'd be transferring to?

    I was more referring to the speculation that homesickness is the reason that he's leaving, not the validity of your information. I guess I should have made it more clear. Sorry.

    Suppose we'll look more closely at LA Pomlee now?

    I'm sad to read this. :(

    I wasn't really excited when we offered him last spring but he honestly looked like a solid prospect for the future. Plus it was nice having an Iowa Mr. Basketball on the roster. Can't blame him for leaving if he's not comfortable in Ames or whatever but if it's playing time that's too bad. Best of luck to the kid.

    Goodbye and good luck in whatever you choose to do.

    From a selfish stand point, all I ask is that you leave in good academic standing. We took a chance on you so please be kind in return.

    Too bad he is homesick . . . he will regret his decision to leave a few years from now when he has grown up.

    That's too bad, and I think at this point we have to start questioning some of the recruiting decisions McD has made. This is getting absolutely ridiculous. We absolutely need Pomlee or somebody else now, and really, Vette was the only one of our current players besides Thompson that has the size to play the C position. Next year it will be Thompson, Brackins, and Hamilton as the only guys over 6'9".

    Pomlee? He's a risky recruit. We need NO more of those.
