    Bubu

    Tonight I watched the replay of the ISU-nu game Saturday. Bubu may never be a star, but he showed me something. Air-balling his first shot, a 3 from the corner, then coming back right away and nailing one from the other corner show some toughness. Then he made a nice mid-range jumper. He will contribute the next couple of years.

    Re: Bubu

    Agreed...I think Bubu is going to suprise all of the people who think he won't contribute over the next couple of years.

    Re: Bubu

    About the only "good" thing about having no depth is that it allows players to play through mistakes, like Johnny used to.

    I hope that this isn't something that Freddie loses when he has more players to choose from.

    I get the feeling from his post-game comments that he has confidence in his players. He talks about having confidence in DG and the team in general. I suspect that Hoiberg's philosophy is to let the bumps run their course sometimes.

    I think that's good, I think it's part being a "players coach." Nobody wants to be benched after making one or two mistakes.

    Re: Bubu

    Im sorry but if Bubu gets significant minutes next year we are in TROUBLE. IF he gets minutes over Melvin Ejim, Chris Babb, Chris Allen, Scotty, McGee and either Sledge or Odunsi we will be in BIG TIME TROUBLE. He does not bring much to the table when i watch him play. He does play hard but what else does he really bring? Not trying to bash him but look up his stats on espn sometime.

    Not saying this will happen, but isn't there a chance that Bubu gets much better in the off season? If he continually improves himself and his shooting he could make a great sixth man.

    Unless due to injury, if Bubu gets minutes over Chris Allen, Scotty, or Ejim we are not in BIG TIME TROUBLE- it would mean Bubu has improved a lot.

    And why is that? Bubu has Big 12 experience and is showing some production. Is it because he is a walk-on? Jeff Hornacek was a walk-on as well. Bubu may never be a star, but he has shown production, and is very bright(as evidenced by his academic achievement).

    Re: Bubu

    I've been impressed with him. I think he will develop into a solid contributor. Perhaps not a star, but someone who can make the difference between winning and losing on a given night.

    Re: Bubu

    I think that Bubu has shown enough talent that he could have earned a scholarship at a lower-level "mid-major" school. Makes me wonder if UNI or Drake ever took a look at him.

    If one of our super amazing awesome transfers doesn't pan out for whatever reason or if someone gets injured I will be glad that Bubu is on the roster. I'm sure his numbers might be a bit inflated over that of your normal walk-on due to lack of depth on the roster, but for me he's been a pleasant surprise.

    Frank Martin would have jerked him out after the airball and given him the Soprano Stare.

    It would almost be more accurate to call Hornacek a greyshirt. Johnny didn't have a scholly for Jeff his freshman year but promised him one his sophomore year and beyond before he ever agreed to come to ISU.

    But you are spot on, Bubu will never get beyond the walk-on tag in some people's eyes. If he keeps improving he will find some way to contribute.

    Re: Bubu

    Bubu's not going to improve in a vacuum, guys like Allen, Scotty, Babb are gonna improve too, and they are better.

    But hey, we're in a place where we can laud the guy that's the least efficient player and the worst in terms of effective FG% on the team though in terms of guys that play:

    If he's a contributor next year, it's more than likely because we missed on one of our guard recruits, because we sure recruited over him.

    Should have know this would turn into a bash Bubu thread. I'll be smarter next time and limit my praise to Seneca, Jack Trice or Hornacek, although I am sure some here will find a way to criticize them.

    I am simply saying that it takes some onions to fire off an airball , then shoot again the next time down the floor, especially for a freshman.

    If you haven't seen improvement in multiple aspects of Bubu's game throughout the season then you must truly be crosseyed.
