    I might be mistaken but I thought the rules on that changed and once you are on scholarship you can't go to walk on status?

    Can you post a link to the rule on this?

    it might be that you can't force someone to go to walk on status. But I don't think they can stop someone from voluntarily giving it up.

    Are these kids good enough to take your own sons off scholarship like that?

    My guess no.

    And if daddy took me off scholarship, I'd transfer.

    Why would you care if your dad took you off of scholarship? Unless of course your dad said he wasn't paying school. But you know Fran is paying so it really doesn't matter.

    I wouldn't say it is shady if it is within the rules. But I would say it is dumb to move your kids off scholarship for kids that shouldn't be playing at a major conference level.

    LOL. I doubt Patrick would worry about accepting a non-scholarship walk-on scenario if it meant fitting in Foster. Besides, just like us, they could assume possible attrition in the spring. Having said all that, hope Foster comes our way.

    Technically it is possible but, why wouldn't Fran have already done that last year to open some spot (for a mid-major player)? I don't see that happening.
    Besides, Fran has enough trouble trying to get playing time for 13 scholarship players, imagine the combos if he need to get 15 players into the game. (and XF response if he is losing minutes to anyone especially 3 star players)

    It's a pride thing, especially my schollie getting yanked for NOBODIES. Foster and Sibley, sure Dad, sign them up. But nobodies? nah. I earned this.

    If I recall, Doug McDermott gave up his scholarship for a guy that was cleared to return another year at Creighton. Pretty sure that was voluntary.

    I don’t understand the rush timings on all of the Iowa commits. Iowa shows interest on Day 1. Officials on Day 5. Commits on Day 6. All the exact same pattern. It’s not how recruiting usually works at the P6 level.

    Lol.
    Easy to not GAF when Fran’s paying for other things.

    it’s how things work when you are recruiting players several levels below you.

    Every summer Iowa has these 4 and 5 star kids lined up for unofficial/official visits. Nothing seems to come of them. So you have to grab who you can when you can at this point in the process.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. It's really strange.
