    What's this I heard yesterday on ESPN, they said something to the effect of Stanley Robinson not attendeding a class in 18 months. How does that work?

    He had to drop out of school, go to a juco to get his eligibility back, and work a real job because he lost his scholarship. Paying his own way through school now. Nothing at all incidious in his story. Pretty good story of toughness and persistence actually.

    Interesting, one would think you have to attend classes to participate in school athletic programs.

    Those were certainly heralded recruits...

    And not even that local. 3 of their starting 5 came from Ohio, Delvon Roe, Travis Walton, and Raymar Morgan. The "Flintsone" era this is not.
