    PLEASE! No talk about players leaving!

    In the past, I have been as guilty as anyone of talking about players leaving ISU and not coming back the next season.

    But please, let's not get that stuff started here already....how about we just avoid those discussions all together? I've seen a couple of mentions of it already in threads. Our speculating about players leaving before they themselves make an official announcement cannot contribute anything good, can it? I personally don't think we even want to plant that thought subliminally in a player's head do we?

    ISU needs to be able to hold onto it's players in order to build a program. There is a enough transferring in college sports, especially in basketball, that will take place naturally, as ISU fans are well aware. I don't think we need to speculate about it before it occurs.

    I hope all the players that should be here next year are here next year. That is the only way this program will get better.

    Let's just not discuss any transfers until OR IF they are actually announced.

    My 2 cents.

    I really don't think we have to worry about it.

    I agree with this sentiment, but why start a thread about it? Now everyone has a place to discuss who is or isn't leaving.

    I can't believe DG is talking about transferring to Creighton after this season. Rediculous.......

    I think you do. Just look at the post game thread.

    Yeah, because there's always groundbreaking insight and revelation worthy content being tossed around in post game threads. Post game threads are where irrational *** holes spew their garbage.

    Exactly - and just the title of this thread makes the likelihood enter the minds of folks who never gave it a thought before...

    Okay, you want spewing. It has become obvious that we need to win the Big 12 tournament this year to go past season. That will keep players from leaving.

    That doesn't make it right. Can people just think about what they're about to post before hitting "submit replay"? Is that so hard to ask?

    It's Cyclone Fanatic. Home of some of the worst posters and lowest form of fan known to college athletics. I stopped having expectations for some of the posters on this site long ago.

    I must have my head buried in the sand. So I'll bite -- Who has been rumored to possibly be leaving after this season?

    No one is. But some dumbo in another thread said Ejim might because he looked disappointed at the end of the game.
