Whoever ends up filling the 13th Scholarship would get to go on a nice summer trip, meet his new teammates and get to play some overseas basketball games - a pretty nice welcome to the team perk

Maybe that's why none of our players have transferred.

Ramster, that sounds like the ISU board to me. They were killing Juiston for going to UNLV, both him and the school. I believe that's where I saw the "offering something in the handshake" comment.
