    Remember these guys right? We all know about the success that LaRon Dendy had last season at Middle Tennessee State. Here are a few more former Cyclones...

    --- Dominique Buckley, Toledo --- Scored 19 points in an overtime loss last night to Northern Iowa.

    --- Eric McKnight, Florida Gulf Coast --- Had 14 and 8 in an upset season-opening win over Miami. McKnight and his new team will travel to Hilton on Dec. 4.

    --- Wes Eikmeyer, Colorado State --- Scored 10 in his season-opener for Colorado State, now playing for former Iowa State coach Larry Eustachy.

    What about the late spring signee that Gmac was battling Nothern Arizona for?

    If GMac didn't bail when he did, the guy would have been a Clone.

    You forgot one Chris! Antwon Oliver, who I believe redshirted under GMac for one year will be playing in Hilton this Sunday night for the Fighting Camels of Campbell. Antwon went to a junior college last year and is playing for Campbell this year. I'm not sure what his stats are this year.

    GMAC all transfer to team! At least those that are still playing. Otherwise, Wesley Johnson would need a mention here.

    What's really telling about all of this is that not one of the people mentioned above is on a team in a major conference. Says something about the level of talent GMAC was looking at.

    On the other hand, I'm glad they all seem to be doing well and contributing.

    Did L.A. Pomlee "retire" after his time at ISU?

    Thank you Chris for the reminder of how great we have it now....and how happy we should be that former terrible coach crawled out of town on his own....

    I was about to point this out, have to take their stats with a grain of salt considering the competition they play against. There was a reason they were not getting starter minutes in the Big 12.

    What happened to Godfrey after not being able to enroll LSU? What a waste of such a talent.

    He's not at the previous JUCO so I'd guess nothing good unfortunately.

    Where's Marcus Brister? His HS coach said he would play in the NBA some day so he has to be somewhere really good.

    Wes E. playing for LE goes in the small world category.

    I thought Godfrey had more upside than Dendy, Ham-bone, and Taggert (remember him) when they were at ISU. Calvin was a great garbage man under the rim.

    Pretty sure Brister is at SEMO unless he graduated already.

    Didn't Brister play a game here at Hilton last year or the year before? I remember that he was clearly better than the starter, but the starter was the coach's son, and got the starting spot and the playing time.

    Some small school in Texas.

    What about former Cyclone Royce White?

    Anyone heard anything from him lately?
