    Keeler Basketball Article

    Just when I think I'll never read one of his articles again, he writes something good like this.

    Sean Keeler: Iowa State men play tough brand of basketball | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register

    The only thing he got wrong is that this team looks like a Johnny Orr style team and not a Tim Floyd as he indicated in the article(actually I think it's Johnny Orr offense with Tim Floyd defense).

    He's just trying to keep you/us on the hook.

    You know here is the deal-these guys write like some people think. They just tell you how THEY see it. Sometimes you love it, sometimes you hate it. However-you know how they feel at THE moment the wrote the article. I think getting overly emotionally tied to what they write is disastrous. They aren't our friends nor our enemies. They are just dudes that write for a pretty average newspaper.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Give the guy a break. He is a good writer. He hammered on the hawks this past weekend. Anyone see that?

    To be fair, we love him when he loves ISU, but hate when he hates on us.

    Guys he doesn't even like ISU. I don't know why you read him. And I'm not making that up, he's said it.

    A prerequisite to writing about ISU is liking ISU?

    Who cares? I don't want a kool aid drinker writing an editorial love fest over ISU every weekend.

    No but just as liking might create bias, disliking also doesn't make for fare reporting. He isn't indifferent he actually dislikes ISU. Anybody who wants to read him go right ahead, but complaining about it is silly. You're complaining about reading something from someone who dislikes you.

    If you've got or watched Fred's interview clips on the 100 year DVD that's exactly who he credits-and that was 2 years before he became HC
