Surprising news as Kevin Coble decides not to come back this season. I really thought that they’d have a solid shot at the NCAAs with him. I’ll miss watching him play in the Big Ten, he was always one of my favorites from the opposition.

WOW - big news. May have to rethink my positioning of NW over PSU in the B10 standings.


#3

WOW… this is huge news. Northwestern was finally going to break through into the tournament this year in my humble opinion, that’s rough news for them. But good news for us. :slight_smile:


#4

Sounds like the foot didn’t heal yet. I wish the kid well.


#5

VERY wierd…The NW board folks seem totally confused. I think there is more behind this story.

BUT, this could mean 2 more wins for PSU.

Boy, that is strange and surprising news. He seems like a good kid - I wish him the best.


#8

sounds like a candidate for an extra year of eligibility if he wants it.

That Bunky guys sounds like a complete jack*ss !!!

I may believe there is more to him not returning than what is being said, but to take the route of that write and start questioning Coble’s decision to be with his mom while she underwent cancer treatment is pathetic.

Agreed. And it’s not like there’s any shame in playing pro ball overseas if you can’t make the NBA, which I think most would agree Coble is a great candidate for. If he’s just speculating that maybe basketball doesn’t mean that much to him, that’s fine. But no need to go into all that stuff with his mother.

Maybe his foot injury and resulting rehab sessions made him realize he doesn’t want to risk permanent injury. Maybe the time away from the court made him realize he doesn’t love basketball as much as he thought. Maybe he found other interests. Maybe he is putting family first. Does it really matter? He’s a big boy who made a life decision. Good luck Kevin!

…and another part of his argument is how Coble will have to “pay his own way” for his final semester. Correct me if Im wrong, but isn’t a school allowed to honor a kids scholarship while still not counting him against the number of current schollies if he is injured? Odds are, Coble is NOT paying his own way, even if he’s not playing.

Yes - if he’s injured with no prospect of returning. But in Coble’s case, it appears that he eventually could heal enough to get back on the court which might make awarding him a medical scholarship for 2010 problematic.
