Re: Dixon Not Coming To ISU

I'm not terribly upset by this. We were over on schollys and I don't think any of us really expected this kid to get any PT this year, even with David going. I wish him the best, but very much look forward to what Dan can do with the extra wiggle room now. You just said we were over the limit! Now ...

I remember going to see Iowa State (then in the Big 8 Conference) give us a 55-52 loss to open the 1985-86 season at Horton Fieldhouse.
I was at that game too with my childhood friend that was a cyclone and he came down from Ames to attend. RIP James Donahoe

Re: Power 6 Teams at Redbird Arena

It is not economically viable for P6s to come to RBA . Too much lost:

media revenue
alumni revenue
parking revenue
concession revenue
apparel revenue
...etc

A P6 AD would be foolish/incompetent to allow a game to be scheduled at RBA, IMO.

Re: 2019 - Dontaie Allen, 6-5/190, SF, Falmouth, KY

About 2200 living in Falmouth. Closer to Cincy than Lexington or Louisville. Definitely a diamond in the ruff. Belmont may have the inside track since his current coach is an alum. That, and if he's been to Nashville/Belmont. Depends on what you are looking for, but Nashville/Belmont probably blows...

Re: Scholarship Matrix

I asked this question a few weeks ago. From what I've read, don't believe there is a max from NCAA. The only limitation in the Big Ten is number of players that can travel to conference games and the conference tournament which is 15. Teams can seat as many of their players as they want for home ga...

Re: MVC Player Movement

I have heard this from a decent source, I wouldn't bet my life on it or against it. But this is a message board... - M Williams and C Romine will not play basketball for ISU next season. If true not surprising on Williams and Romine. There was already some noise out there that Williams might not pl...

Re: Loyola

Saw a Loyola assistant coach last night and Loyola feels real good about Custer staying. interestingly he also stated that one could argue the best player on the Loyola roster did not play this year as he sat out due to transferring from New Mexico. He said the kid has been dominant in practice all ...

This should shut everyone up about all of the defections we supposedly have.
I want ISU to have a couple more select defections (aka bad fit/deadweight) asap.

Re: King David gone

So assumptions are equivalent to enlightenment? You haven't seen him play. You don't know the reasoning why Dan didn't play him. You don't even know what forced Romine to leave the team for a while. Yet you make your assumptions to come to your own conclusions. Maybe he's really good. But I'm not s...

Re: Grad Transfer Interest

Agree considering transfers has to be a part of the process. Certainly plan on building the team via the normal recruiting process and look to plug in short term holes as needed with grad transfers. Given that D 1 has over 700 transfers annually it would be foolish to avoid considering any grad tran...

FGCU will want nothing to do with this team on the road next year. No chance. ISU beats them at every position on the floor.
