Dear EagleTough,
Most other schools have the same policy, that, of not discussing why a player has left, or why they were disciplined. I believe our sister schools do the same.
If true, then they also are media blackouts. That's why emu79 is correct. Creighton said he (Roback) was being disciplined, but not why.

I don't care WHY......stop repeating the same thing. I've never said I want to know the details, and it's perfectly fine for EMU/Creighton to keep the specifics to themselves. Privacy, legal issues, etc.......I get that.

Is he showing up or not? Is it that hard, or such a secret, or against some stupid policy to say yes or no whether the kid's showing up?

Q: Coach Creighton, everyone's excited for the upcoming season, after EMU's first bowl game in 30 years. It looks like the new recruits and most of the Juco transfers are on campus working out with the team. One notable exception is Jairus Grissom, will he be joining the team this summer?

A: No, next question

Q: What about Nigel Kilby?

A: No, he will be attending XXXXX Junior college, next question

Q: How do you feel about your chances for another bowl game this year?

A: ...............10 minute answer..........

Simple.

Quick question. You mention 'the media' pressed Creighton about Roback until he finally said something. Who is the media you refer to?

Thx

So according to Twitter the kid was or is in Phoenix and that means he's going JUCO??? Is this speculation and assumption? Does anyone know for a FACT that he's not going to EMU?

The rosters for Juco's like Mesa and Eastern Arizona aren't posted yet.

Lots of smoke y'all, there is no way he's coming here if his twitter profile and media have him in Arizona. No response from Twitter messages from him either. I think Eagle Tough continues to bring up a good point -- seems like the same old approach to recruiting. CC seems too gracious with these players. He probably released him of his LOI.

However, if the kid doesn't want to be here I don't want him -- which may be his CC's approach as well.

Sucks, but we gotta move on.

I have NO idea what, if anything, is happening.

I don't know if it is academics or change of heart.

If it is academics it isn't a change of heart.

IF it is a 'change of heart' he can do ONE year JUCO, prep. school, etc. and be re-recruited in 2018.

IF it is academics, he'll need an associates degree.

Until his name is taken off the EMU website roster I'll assume I don't have a clue where the truth lies.

That's good news. He's could be an all conference receiver. Definitely EMUs home run hitter. This team has serious depth and experience at receiver. Gonna be hard for any newcomers to crack the 2-deep.
