    Dendy or Chris Allen?

    Dendy was the last cyclone to transfer. Chris Allen was the last Transfer to sign with the Cyclones in August. Who would be more valuable to our team looking past all the drama that Dendy caused...Dendy this year, or Chris Allen next year?

    You can't even ask that really since Allen hasnt even stepped on the court for us.

    Well, good choices both ways. How about DeMarcus Page as the last one out the door? Stuff happens.

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    Chris Allen, hands down. Dendy was nice, would fit well in this system, but this year is still just a year of surprise (and a nice one at that). Next year is supposed to be tourney-bound for the Cyclones with Allen, Babb, Booker, and Big Royce leading the way.

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    I say Dendy because we are extremely short and weak in the post this year and next year we are overloaded with shooting guards. If Dendy was on the team this year he would be our go to guy in the paint. Eric McKnight could red shirt this year. Jaime wouldn't always have to defend the opposing teams best post player and get in foul trouble. And Ejim could play his true position of a 3.

    Chris Allen is gonna be a stud and is going to be awesome to have next year but honestly i don't think we need him as much as we need dendy this year. We will have Chris Babb, Scott, McGee and Odunsi all playing shooting guard next year. Don't get me wrong I'm psyched to have Chris Allen but with Dendy this year we could have been an NCAA tourney team this year i think.

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    I would be inclined to say Dendy this year. I just think the increase in prodctivity and another athletic big guy would help us more this year than Allen will next year.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    Interesting hypothetical, but in reality I believe we wouldn't have had to choose between one or the other. Since Dendy would have been a senior this year, and Allen wouldn't be eligible until next year, wouldn't we be able to have both and not go over the scholarship limits?

    Actually, I think I may be mistaken. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Regarding the hypo, I'd probably take Allen but it's a close call. With a fresh coach and a new start, Dendy could have been a real contributor to this year's team and may have fit perfectly in Hoiberg's system which seems to be based on ball movement, spacing and just good, sound pick-up game fundamentals (drive and kick, pick and pop, pick and roll, etc.). Tough to say because Dendy may have gotten us over the top and into the tourney with this year's team.

    Dendy. Even though Allen is a better player, we need Dendy's presence downlow.

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    We don't need Dendy as much as we do Hamilton. Dendy is too much of a wild card. Hamilton would have provided what we have with Godfrey except more experience

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    Looking towards building towards next year, Allen. Plus, Dendy could have bailed at break or been the drama filled experience he was last year leaving us in flux and being a distraction.

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    I would say Dendy. Dendy would have us in the tourney this year, and we would still have enough to make the tourney next year as well.

    It can't be Dendy. Dendy quit on his team.

    Re: Dendy or Chris Allen?

    The First 2 things I think of when I hear the name Dendy.

    1) Leron's airball of a 10 foot jumper, early in the shot clock, under 1 min to go, against UNI last year, when we had a lead. That had to be one of the bottom 10 plays last year.

    2) The fact he thought he could be Brett Favre and retire, un retire, retire, un retire, all in the same season! Then he finally punked out and quit on us. HE DIDN'T WANT TO BE A CYCLONE!

    Why has there been multiple threads today about a puke that quit on us? Why in the world is Allen, a guy that has played in something like 14 NCAA Tourney games (AKA Leader) being compared to Dendy (AKA Cancer)? There is no comparison.

    Allen, He hasn't played but the experience he has given this team while being on the practice squad is better than what Dendy offered with his issues. Plus I am willing to be Mr. Mayor would not have put up with Dendy's S*^$
