    Dead on. I believe he will be a Hoosier one day. If he isn’t….well it will be an awkward situation if he goes to a school on IU’s schedule…

    This is not an abnormal occurence. Tom Coverdale went to prep school for a year before coming to IU. I hope that is the path he takes. It will mature him, and they can teach Ron how to be a student. He doesn’t have to be a Chemistry or Biology major, just enroll in a degree program that fits his personality. I imagine he will listen to the schools who can get him in right now, but he has been all IU for at least two years. I think this has hit the fan base hard because Ron is a fan favorite. I don’t think you should say it will never happen because it happens all the time. Guys can be taught how to be students.

    I think that was there if needed. I am also not certain that there will not be another issue. Roth may end up at IU after all, but I don’t think he was slighted if he doesn’t get to come back. He didn’t play much last year and they don’t guarantee these guys 4 years of playing full time.

    you’re right about the fact that it def does happen. That’s my bad cuz I wasn’t clear about what i was talking about. I absolutely think he will turn it around in the classroom and will be successful wherever he ends up. The reason he won’t end up at IU is because reports are saying he doesn’t wanna go the JUCO route and as you look at the players we are still recruiting for 2013, Patterson’s position isn’t a part of our plans. Coach is looking to add size, even if it’s a wing player, and from what we know about Crean, he has a recruiting plan for each year and something like this isn’t going to make him change. So it’s reasonable to assume the only way Ron could have found his way back to IU was if he went to a JUCO and then I definitely think IU would be all over him for 2014.

    I just hope he doesn’t end up at Purdue or Illinois. Because I wanna be able to root for him as I do any player from Indiana that doesn’t go to one of our main rivals.

    Let’s not forget that Ron was one of the first Hoosier recruit to commit when IU was struggling, so don’t count out Ron coming back to IU. I have a good feeling that he wants to come back to IU, and this is where he belongs. I would like for him to come back after a year in prep school or maybe the junior college route which will prepare him academically, and the overall experience involving sports and education. I’m a fan of Ron Patterson.

    I also don’t believe IU used the grade “excuse” to solve the scholarship issue. However, if Patterson ends up at Purdue or OSU all hell will break lose.

    This kid committed to IU two years ago when they weren’t winning that many games. I have seen highlights and this kid can play. I was looking forward to watching him play this fall. Good luck Ron!
