    And does anyone know if creighton will come Ames, if we go to Omaha or meet at the Harlem high school somewhere in the middle?

    Yes, today I believe. But don't plan on hearing anything about it.

    Supposedly the coaches can talk about it this year, but I doubt they will.

    Now in Omaha. Probably at their smaller gym on campus.

    Rumors will slowly leak out over the next week or two. At least that's what has happened the last couple years.

    Of course if Fred and staff can talk about it - and choose to - I'm sure there are media who will want to know: CW, Hines, probably Trey Scott (new Scout guy).

    I'm only interested if it's a double-secret scrimmage.

    I'm only interested in knowing how many fouls are called, who fouled out, how quickly they fouled out, a d how long the scrimmage lasted due to increased whistle-age.

    I would think Fred and McD will have a gentleman's agreement on what is discussed with the media. Whether or not the extra things that people hear over the next few days are a part of that or not is another thing entirely, but I doubt either Fred or McD care to have any 'bad news' pop up in regards to how the scrimmage ended up.

    If everybody knew it wouldn't be very secret now would it?

    Will we find out if our players are sweating enough?

    I'll start the rumors....

    We beat them 82-65. Niang had 20 pts and 10 rebs. Morris was our best PG on the court. Thomas was 3-5 on 3's. Ejim held Dougie to 12 pts. Kane had 16 pts also.

    Pretty good, huh? Of course it's entirely made up. Do you like it?

    It will be interesting to hear how we shoot from 3 if that detail comes available.

    Heard Bubu scored 14 pts. He was 14-19 shooting from the line.

    Did Percy cross halfcourt?

    And, of course, the sweat thing.


    I agree that any 'news' will be tightly controlled, but it'll be nice to get this day closer to basketball.

    I hope they keep the temperature down in Hilton so no one sweats. CF will melt down.

    Yeah, I was talking about the season as it comes up. We all know it is hot in Hell, er, Omaha.

    plus, if the temp is down, maybe Vaughn will choose ISU so he can wear his long sleeves comfortably during games.
