I don't know what the reason would be but i did read Sledge tried to get waiver from NCAA to play this year but it hasn't been ruled on yet.
That was why I asked the question, because I had thought I had read that too, plus the Iona site lists him as a sophomore, not a red-shirt sophomore.....but that may just be the way they do it for now. He probably has to sit out.
-Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".
Why would it? One bad game doesn't change a thing. Iowa will still be a darkhorse B1G championship contender, and Iowa State will be lucky to make the NIT.
If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
Just to wrap this thread up, according to sources of several people Pelle only needs to finish 3 online classes to complete his high school requirements. Pelle and those close to him expect for him to make it through the NCAA clearinghouse, although I can imagine that this will take a while. Either way, it was still a risk v reward to take Pelle and obviously Iona felt that it was worth that risk.
