      "Free Teddy" sounds like a Victoria's Secret promotion.

      Just sayin'.

  • Do they grant waivers through out the season?

    Do they grant waivers in the middle of games?

      Maybe during a timeout?

      Somebody needs to hit FTs, though, with or without Teddy.

        Thought this was pretty neat ... a little positive note for a rough WSU day.

          Kung Wu ... out of curiosity, is there a way to embed facebook posts like you do with twitter posts on the forum?

          Don't see anything.

      • If I were an oppressive dictator I would close this post until someone PM's one of the admin staff with hard news on TA. Seeing this thread pop up every few hours with nothingburgers is a bit like spending your time buying and scratching off lotto tickets, and well all know how wise that is as a use of time and money. Excitedness... oh nevermind. Hey what's that... DAMMIT!

          Totally agree. This thread is wearing me out. One big tease.

      • Would think WSU would get some good karma from the NCAA with how they handled the Lomax situation.

          Wasn't Karma one of the strippers in the Louisville scandal?

      • He aint getting a waiver. Who are we kidding? If he does it will be in freaking February.

        Screw the NCAA.

        • A Minnesota guard was denied a waiver today. Can't find a rhyme or reason the NCAA is using in these decisions...

        • Missouri just got waiver approved for a guy who transferred from Illinois because his coach was yelling at him.

          it does sound like that one of the factors is how the school the player is transferring from responds. In the case of the Minnesota case, Pittsburgh was doing their best to block it. Evansville is blocking it in another case, and I would expect Huggins to block Teddy.

            I have no idea why Huggins would want to block Teddy, we aren't an opponent of WVU.

            I'm not surprised to hear this. But if a coach goes out of his way to block a student from getting a waiver while they transfer out of conference, rather than let the NCAA bums flip a coin or whatever they do, that just confirms, IMO, the student athlete absolutely did the right thing leaving a petty coach.

        • Carlton Bragg's waiver to play now at New Mexico was denied today.

          From what I can tell, he'll be eligible in December anyway.

            .......and likely on the Dean's list by January.............

        • According to Kennedy there is a back and forth going on between WSU and WVU. There will likely be no resolution one way or the other until after Charleston.

          Maybe I’m reading between the line to much when he says that WVU gets to respond to WSU inputs on the waiver request - but it sounds like WVU responses are maybe drawing the process out. But he did make a point to say WSU doesn’t want to say anything publicly about what going on.

            Wouldn’t be surprised if Huggy was the one holding everything back. Dude isn’t exactly the most loveable guy.

            You can say that again!

        • If true WVU is playing this really dumb. The media will kill them if this is true and comes out. They will get shamed into doing the right thing

            Don't be naive...all the media cares about is wins and losses and selling stories. Shame and Bob Huggins have been friends for years.

            Don’t ignore history....I don’t know the specifics of this case, but we have seen other instances where coaches try to block a transfer, that transfer/new school fights it, the media picks up the story and bashes the coach and program responsible for the blocking, and then later the decision gets reversed. The best example is probably Bo Ryan a few years ago attempting to block that kid from going to Iowa. His no turned to a yes after getting killed publicly. The most recent example might be that player a couple of years ago who tried to transfer from Pitt to UNC. Initially Pitt tried to make him sit, but after fighiting it-which lead to media outrage- the kid won and was eligible immediately.

            Part of the reason why Marshall probably let Lomax go without fuss is because he knew he would get killed. I agree that selling stories is one of the only things the media cares about. You know what sells stories nowadays in college athletics? Rich ass coaches who can go to whatever school they want making the decision to block a kid from going to whatever school he wants. It is a frequently discussed topic in college athletics.

        • Doesn’t help that WVU fans are on Twitter saying they would have won their opener if they’d had Teddy Buckets.
