"Multiple sources are telling me that Lamb hasn't been a part of the Iowa State men's basketball program for months now. After last season, it was known by both parties that Lamb wouldn't be a part of the program going forward. That includes the 2011-12 Iowa State men's basketball season.Clonefan32 says:
So yes, a former Iowa State walk-on did get arrested last night. But no, a current member of the men's basketball program didn't."
"Hmm, interesting stuff. I know as of mid-March he was still practicing with the team but alot could have changed since then. At least we didn't have a member of the team arrested, although it feels like a "Hawk-fan-esque" technicality."Thatguy believes:
And finally, The_Architect sums it up with his feelings:"who cares. win games. "
Here is another thread where Lamb goes from walk-on to former walk-on. Whew!"Yawn, who cares. He would have never played. "
Al_4_State agrees:"Can we hire a full-time driver for our coaching staff? This is getting ******* ridiculous. How do they expect the kids they coach to take them seriously when they aren't even smart enough to call a damn cab."
"I'd be on board with this. I totally get why coaches drink, as stressful as their job can be. I don't get all the driving in a city while drunk. They can easily afford a cab. "CycloneJoe thinks:
Per Lyon309Cy:"We freaking mock Iowa all the time about their arrests but I feel like this is about #10 for us since thanksving! "
Now, on to the next arrest. The newest member of basketball coach Fred Hoiberg's staff, Cornell Mann, was also arrested for DUI. Mann's arrest came just one day after it was announced he was hired at ISU. Mann, unlike Lamb and Barkema, was arrested in Ohio and not in Iowa."Barkema needs to go. If for no other reason than because every single time I hear his name I remember his dropped North-division-winning TD. Not that it's related at all with this current transgression, just that a little piece of me dies every time I hear that name. Is it unfair, yes, and I realize this, but it would make me very happy to never have to hear of him again."
isuno1fan believes:"I think a few of you would be apt to boot someone out of the program if he were to sneeze in the wrong direction. So he drank a little too much and drove, it happens - all the damn time actually. Wake me up when he kills a hooker, then there might be an issue."
"Pretty obvious Hoiberg wants to keep him on staff IMO.clones_jer says:
6 months from now, nobody will remember this unless he makes it a habit"
Rustshack has this thought:"who here hasn't celebrated a new job? at least we know he's excited."
And the thread goes on for pages. Read the rest, if you can. Either these guys are excited about the future of Cyclone athletics or are just self medicating depression. It's probably somewhere in between."He wont be let go because of this. Maybe he can better relate to some of our transfers and Railey now."
