  1. Per Journalstar. Sorry no link - phone acting up.
  2. I wondered if that was what played into her decision. With the cost of a college education sky rocketing, the lure of a full ride somewhere else has to be pretty strong. It just isn't worth going $100k into debt for a 4 year degree and then possibly more debt if they go on to grad school. Maybe she will come back to South Dakota? Heck, their out of state tuition rivals NU's in-state tuition anyway, and she would get a free ride and live in a stellar dorm, play in new facilities, and get lots of playing time. Plus, it is still close enough that her family could see her play. Any she may have more opportunity for post season play...

  4. Thought about it some more. Read some of the dad's tweets. I'm not in favor of bringing the parents' back. Which means I'm not in favor of bringing Lanie back. I just don't think the dad can keep his trap shut and our situation, although it is not the best right now, could possibly get worse with him around again. No, no, no, no, just no.
  5. I feel kind of bad for her. If I recall correctly, she skipped a grade or two so that she could play with her older sister in HS. Which means she entered college at a younger age than most. The transition to D1 ball is difficult enough for an 18 year old, let alone someone who was moved up a grade. I just have to wonder why the parents were OK with all of this. Was it really that important that she have more playing time in HS with her sister? Was it about having a state championship team? Who knows. It sounded like she still wanted to come to Nebraska even after her sister left - yet she wound up following her sister to KState. Was that really her decision? Then an injury year, and now a year pretty much spent on the bench. Only 3 years left in her college career and she has no team now. Had she stayed in her true grade in HS, would she have been recruited very heavily by KState? At the time she and her sister went there, they didn't have quite the recruits that they now have. I'm sure she's solid academically so that is not an issue, but I'm not sure that it was such a wise decision to move her ahead. I had a kid that could have graduated a year early, but since she was wanting to be a college athlete, she stayed all 4 years in HS and it was worth it from a recruiting standpoint. She took a huge leap in skills from her junior to her senior years, grew a bit, physically got a lot stronger, became more focused. I have to wonder if Lanie had not skipped a grade if she might be in a bit better situation.
  6. I have very mixed feelings about this. Lanie is probably a great kid - but the parental baggage is pretty awful. Could it be a situation where the 'rents are told she could come back, but mom and dad are on a very short leash? Just don't like the idea of the parents being back here. They might be better off looking at DII.
  7. I would think this puts Kaylee in an awkward situation if she is staying with KState.
  8. Based on a few of dad's tweets, seems they may not be happy with KState.
  9. Heck no.
  10. Lanie Page is leaving KState.
  11. Didn't even realized he was gone until today.
  12. I thought Ruffcorn was the strength coach. I think Rudoph is an athletic trainer.
  13. Is it possible to have a strong VB conference and a strong WBB conference at the same time? I suppose if the ADs put their full support behind both sports then it could be.
  14. That was key - Uconn's inability to reverse the ball. Kept them from making cuts and took them out of their offense. I was concerned the refs were going to hand it over with the flagrant 1 call against MS State which, IMO, was a lot of acting on Katie Lou's part. But State kept their composure and that little point guard is just nails. The other BIG difference - MS State was not intimidated by UConn. They played their game and forced UConn to play their game. Tremendous job by the coach to keep his team focused and in the game plan. Players obviously were "all in" with him. Congrats to MS State!
  15. Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, Notre Dame, and Virginia Tech are rumored to be followed or are following Jess on twitter.
  16. Seems to me White gets into foul trouble easily. Could be part of the reason her minutes have been limited during the season.
  17. Care to spill?
  18. Two seasons ago (Theriot's final season), both my daughter and I observed on numerous occasions that Theriot looked royally pissed about something on the court. There were also a few times that Yori did not start her (cannot remember the reason but it was NOT due to injury). Could that have had something to do with Shepard?
  19. Highest ranked recruit in program history enters program, decorated head coach dismissed after first season, followed by worst season in program history. A correlation there? Who knows. Certainly doesn't look good.
  20. Well, you know, Yori didn't have a lot of patience for players who showed up out of shape. Guess that makes her mean according to some people. I wondered at the beginning of this season if Yori was still coach if Jess would have been on the bench for her obvious lack of conditioning.
  21. Perhaps bottom 30?
  22. Suppose she could wind up at a place like KState
  23. Wonder if she will look at Florida state?
