    Re: You'll enjoy reading this!

    Seeing what Penn State is doing makes me wonder something about our Big Ten transfers:

    1) We're better having Royce White, and Minnesota seems more cohesive now than they were (although Royce wasn't there enough to be that problem). Seems like both programs won, somehow.

    2) We're better having Chris Babb, and we'll love his shooting and defense next year. Penn State is pulling upsets without him. Did both programs win in that deal?

    3) Michigan State clearly misses Chris Allen. Both programs did not win there.

    4) Not Big Ten, but it's worth putting him in here: Jake Anderson. We clearly won that one.

    Seems like we've been involved in some win/win scenarios, although our side will look much better when our guys take the court.

    I do not think it is that simple- different year, different teams. For example, although we are off to a better start, we would be more improved had Hamilton stayed.

    I'm not arguing that we won in the Hamilton deal. We could really use him, and he would have loved this to death.

    I didn't necessarily expect BU to drop completely out of the Top 25, but they might not return ó next four games are vs. KU, vs. OSU, @KSU, v CU ... games at A&M and @Texas soon after.

    Never thought you were arguing that.

    What you just said about Hamilton is being said about Minn-White and PSU-Babb.

    Oh, OK. I didn't realize they were talking about that.

    I'm OK with their loss.

    No tears here- I would not mind taking another one this off-season.

    Re: You'll enjoy reading this!

    Hamilton dug himself in a hole by publicly speaking out against McDermott and ISU. It sounded like he wanted to come back shortly after the Hoiberg hire but it was too late because of what he said. Sure we really could have used him but that is his fault. Now he can enjoy riding the bench at LSU.


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    What did he say? It's all fuzzy. That whole season is just a blur to me.

    F hamilton. I hope we find a way to get LSU on the damn schedule next year, just so he can see and feel how idiodic his decision is/was. The whole conversation he and Lucca had as hamilton was transferring really chapped my ***.

    Sorry for the vent session. As far as the OP...I did happen to enjoy the read. Thanks for sharing.
