    So I saw on twitter over the week, a picture of some Iowa State graduates. Included in the picture Cotton-Moya, Payne and Lanning. There may have been additional that I supposed to be on on the 2017 roster. This brought up the question, if they are graduated how are they eligible for next year? I assume they are taking minimal courses to stay eligible, possible grad level. Just wondering not trying to start any worries of grad-transfer from us or anything.....

    You have five years to play. Most people graduate in four.

    I assumed it had to be, weird to see Payne already graduating going into his Junior year...

    I'm pretty sure Jack Whitver graduated in 3 or 3.5 semesters and then got an MBA while on scholarship. Seems the smart thing to do if you're mature enough. I sure wasn't at that age.
