I agree with you, we don't know the reason why EB left. But we can see the trend that is happening, we can agree that it is not good, and as long as we aren't getting the reasons why, then we gosh darn well will speculate. That's the norm for message boards.
Is it me or does it seem problems often arise when relatives get too involved with the decision making process that these young men and women need to make themselves?
...thinking of Wesley J and a couple past football players/recruits.
I too am shocked at this move. But, wish Em and her family all the best.
He got the boot. Not only that but when they quit and come to Iowa State it's o.k.Quote:
Refresh my memory. When Lucious left MSU in the middle of the season did he quit or was he booted.
So, even when you get booted off the team, you still have to sit out a year (like Lucious did) to be eligible for another D1 team?
I'm behind BF, program is a top 10 attendance program and NCAA tourn team for many years. Yah I've seen his actions on the court, but as someone said earlier these young ladies know what thier getting before coming in. Finally, I had a coach in HS (that I respect) that was on our butts all the time. I was thinking about quiting the sport at end of season and talked to him. He told me (and I'll never forget this) " When I quit chewing your butt to get better, is when I've given up on you" 10K Plus fans at a Women's BB Prgram that reach the NCAA tourn yearly, my coach is BF
I think she could have developed into a good player for our team, but if she is unhappy it is better for both her and the team that she leave now.
I don't believe in speculating. Also I don't like to talk bad about the coaching in times like these. The only comment that I will make is that this hurts our chances for this year. While Em was having trouble lately, we all saw what she was capable of earlier in the year. I also don't like what is said in press conferences sometimes. I think if someone isn't capable of saying the right things in press conferences, we are better off without them.
I will say again, that I am completely devastated by this. The team I envisioned doing very well had Emiah playing well. In fact, Em's dad mentioned it in a post, and I won't go back to find it word for word since I can give the gist. We need plenty of ball-handlers and shooters if we are going to challenge Baylor. Moody needed a blow during the game the way she plays. Now where do we go to get that?
Em had become my favorite player and I thought she was a great fit for the Cyclone program. Sometimes things don't work out for some odd reason. I wish her the best, but I am very disappointed.
It's time to move on
