    well that sux


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Yes and no. I think Chris Allen is a very good player and very good athlete... plus Coleman was going to be a very hard get out of MN since his older brother was a Gopher.

    I would have loved to land Coleman, but I'm very happy with our team right now for next year. A lot of potential even with the risks.

    His brother transfered out and wanted him to go elsewhere.
    I've posted it before, I think this is going to be the one that got away.

    From what others have said on the message boards, his brother is not the biggest fan of the Minnesota program. It sounds like it may have been his only high major option, though. Hoiberg was focusing on getting 1s after the commitment of Allen, so it seems likely that the program as a whole cooled on Coleman. Not to say we would not have tried to make room if he really wanted to be here.

    Re: Joe Coleman a gopher

    Coleman would have been nice AFTER next year, only because Allen gets 1 year. I have a feeling however FH will land a damn good shooting guard to replace Allen, he hasnt dissapointed yet.

    Doesn't that make this so much more fun? OK, we didn't land the one guy, but the odds are really good that Fred lands somebody very good.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
