Honestly Ham probably just said he was homesick in the press release to be nice to Gmac and company and not say anything bad about ISU. I think it was just more press release propaganda than anything.
Not that it looks like it really matters anymore anyway.
Maybe he'll meet this chick down in SEC country

actually there was an article in the register that he wanted to go closer to home but he couldnt find a good fit. plus he had connections at LSU and Virginia which were basically the last 2 he was considering. but there probably is a little bit more to it, but im not sure
Good luck to him. I will enjoy watching him in the NCAA tourney while we are executing the patented McDermott extended off-season.
Here's a quote from Hamilton.
"I liked the area, the community and the coaching staff," said Hamilton, who visited LSU last weekend. "Coach (Trent) Johnson has had success in coaching big men, and I feel like I fit in with what they do."
That's exactly what I thought, too. He obviously didn't want to play for Mac any more.
Maybe he meant Long Beach State University, which is closer to Utah, and got the letters messed up?
LSU is moving to the PAC 10 conference and the announcement has not been made yet, even though April 1 has passed?
My two cents worth :)
I wish him luck either way...to many kids leaving for the kids to be the problem...disappointing fact...
