    That is a compelling theory for us, maybe most of all because it is soothing.

    Knowing we *at least* end up with Bolton or Wigginton feels pretty nice.

    Assuming it is true, of course. Bolton must really want Prohm and Iowa State. You figure he can land softly many places if Wigginton ends up coming back, though.

    Again -- assuming the theory is true and Bolton is not just still weighing options.

    So out of curiosity and for fun, if we do see another visit next week by a grad transfer and/or Bolton visiting a couple other places, is the reverse (him not coming) thought to be automatically true? I don’t buy the ‘wait on the waiver theory’ by some cuz it takes the NCAA too long to decide those things. I guess it boils down to none of our speculating is worth a whole lot right now. Lol But hey, guess that’s what message boards are for. Some will claim they knew all along when it’s all over, others will bash those who were wrong with their theories, some will say Prohm planned it all this way, and some will blame Fred (just joking). Gotta love spring recruiting...

    I’m of the opinion you take Bolton now and welcome wigs back if he wants. That’d give you a nice rotation of TH, Nixon, wigs, and Bolton to split up the minutes between three spots. That gives you somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-30 minutes apiece with leftovers for the other guys (unless they prove worthy). It likely won’t happen as I would imagine LW is gone but that’d be a dream scenario. That team would be stout.

    Sorry in advance but in the ‘just for fun’ category, what % of CF posters do you think believe LW has already closed the book on the option of coming back? 25%, 50%..? My guess is 75% of us thinks he’s already decided he won’t come back. (But I guess there is the fact he hasn’t publicly announced it like some entrants have)

    Just offered s JUCO guard out of John Logan JC. Jayden Scruggs. Change any bodies thinking on Bolton? Sounds like a pretty good player.

    He's a 2020 recruit so no correlation

    For anyone speculating on this - please also mention whose scholarship you are pulling since we would be one over the limit.

    Or not. No reason to single one of our players out (though calling some of them expendable is a bit douchey).

    I agree on this - I just wanted to make the point that it is easy to say take them both but the reality is CSP has to think about that next step and from what I have seen from him, he is a very fair man and would not put one of the current members of the team in that situation of looking for a new home at this point. Therefore I believe there is only one spot available either way.

    You’re correct that he’s the one that has to make those decisions however there’s nothing wrong with someone noting what they think would be an ideal scenario without specifically calling out an existing player (which is what I did). Can’t fault a man for having an opinion and stating it.

    Didn't he previously announce that he was staying? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    Ncaa needs to
    Come up with a new rule for stuff like this. Like if a kid puts his name in the draft you are awarded an extra scholarship if he decides to come back. Just a one year scholarship.

    Absolutely not. That would benefit the blue bloods every single year.
