  • Will Orupke Arrive In Time For 2nd Semester?

    What do you think?
    In the fast lane

    I'd be fine with just having him arrive next season.

    I'm trying to deny this feeling, wondering if he's ever going to show in the Air Capital.

    Really, how long does it take to get a standardized test score back?

      You are assuming that things in Nigeria run in an organized way like here in the states. Their culture revolves around bribes and corruption.

        Four questions:

        1. When does second semester officially start at WSU?

        2. Does anyone know if the visa materials can be filed with Dept. of Homeland Security while waiting for the test results, or do the test results have to be submitted along with the visa paperwork?

        3. Don't international players have to pass through at least some sort of NCAA clearinghouse? [I ask because I thought Nebraska had a international player or two in the past who was clear to come to the states, but couldn't get himself eligible to play in the NCAA]

        4. Has he ever played on any international teams where one of the players (not necessarily him) accepted pay for play?

          I will know if I am fine with him coming next season or not after a few games. I want to see how our team does right now. We will know soon if we need him here ASAP or not...

            I think he'll be here, but if he isn't, fine too. I'm with the others that I'd just be happy with him getting here next year. Then we'd get a full season out of him.

              Uhmm you really don't have a choice in the matter. We take what we can get in a situation like this.

                I still think he'll be here mid-December.

                DJA, spring semester starts sometime around mid-January. There are classes offered over winter break, though.
                The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.

                  The actual day for spring semester to start is the day after MLK day.

                      Someone needs to call the post-game show Saturday and ask.

                          "Hello, coach. I was glad to see Mantas finally hit some outside shots. I think he's a real key for this season . . . But I just have one question for you. I was looking over the roster that was given out at Shocker Madness and there's this fella whose name I think is E-him-in O-ruk-pee. I haven't seen him on the bench yet this year. I was hoping you could comment on why, if he's not here, he is on the roster. Thanks, and I'll hang up and listen."
