I recognize a few of them.  I presume the groom is in front.

Is that out in front of the Muny?

It appears as though Rob Loe has been traded or released by NZ Breakers and signed by Cairns Taipans. Apparently Cody has also been called up by the Taipans

Loe chose not to resign with the Breakers.  That club is always broke and is trying a different approach.  They hired Jonathan Givony of Draft Express as their head scout and are going to a 5 out positionless team.  Loe walked along with most of their other big men.  They want to start a lineup 6'6 players and under.

Ellis is on an injury callup.  He's been a deep reserve for his career so I'm not surprised he is getting passed over.  He would be better served going overseas to recharge his career but he and his family own and run the minor league team he plays for.

Hasn’t Cody had some kind of serious injury every year or does it just seem like it?

Interesting. Thanks for the rundown. I’m bummed I can’t get a breakers jersey with Loe because Barstool big cat is a part owner

Interesting in that  he was filling in for Rob Loe on NZ international team duties.  SLU buddies still helping each other out.  Nice.

Does Cody have dual citizenship now?  He was born an Aussie.  He would have to gain citizenship in New Zealand to play for them internationally, right?

He was filling in for Rob while Rob is playing for NZ.

That makes more sense.  Billikenbooster's statement lead me to believe he was filling in for Loe on the New Zealand International team.  Thanks.

Yes I know. I stated that in my post. That is why I was confused by billikenboosters sentence which said Cody wa filling in for Loe on NZ international duties. Bb needed a comma and a “who was” added in.

I actually read it the same way as Hoosier initially since I didn't read the article linked by ucan2 and then re-read it thinking "wait a minute Cody isn't from NZ" and I got what Billikenbooster was trying to say.  You both have a point - Hoosier's that Billikenbooster could have stated it more clearly and 05's that Hoosier should have just read it correctly knowing Cody is not from NZ and/or looked back at the ucan2 article for more context and realized Cody was no in fact playing for the NZ national team.

The subsequent pissing match is not necessary.

There in no pissing match. 05 is simply being 05. It’s done.

Yarbrough's suspension was discussed in the CollegeHoops144 thread.

I'm not sure how others feel about this, but I'd prefer to keep this thread for news about guys who finish as Billikens and not include guys who transfer out of the program.
