    4 schollies available, IMHO where they go

    Like I said in the title it's just my opinion and intended to start the conversation. Personally I feel Odunsi leaving isn't really a loss. I felt all along Odunsi and Sledge were competing for one spot and sooner or later one would leave. Here's my breakdown by position.

    Center-well we don't have one, Railey may develop into one.
    It would be nice to have a big stopper when needed. I know it's been said that the staff was looking for a high flyer but we know the Cato's of the world are few in far between. I'd be happy with a lanky guy with post moves, a Gasol or Vroman type.

    PF-it's our strongest position long term we have JR Booker, Sophs White and Godfrey and Railey depending on how you see Railey. Alu is a perfect fit, he's considering going pro and he was 14/9 this year. Plus he's just keeping it warm for a 2012 recruit and give Railey a chance to red shirt. Niang or Ding would both be great gets, doubt getting both would happen but having 2 posts in the 12 class would help replace the class of 2010 guys.

    SF/3Grd- we have JR Babb and SO Ejim both play D and give different looks on O. Do we want Cook in 12? Personally I think it causes a log jam and Jok in 13 would be preferred. However if we only get one post Cook is a good option having Ejim or Cook see some time at the 4.

    SG-we have SRs SC and (Allen or McGee JR) depending on who plays PG, Okoro is a perfect fit being big enough to slide to the 3 when needed but we're losing 2 next year. I'd like to see a pure shooter signed to complement Okoro .

    PG-this year we'll most likely have McGee or Allen starting and Sledge or Palo backing them up. Next year Lucious looks to be the guy with Sledge taking over in the future. Obviously you take a great PG anytime you can get them but in a perfect world we'd sign him in 2013.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I say give one to Bubu for 2011-12. For the other, either bank it or bring in a transfer to sit the bench for a year.

    This.

    It would be hard to tell a kid you get it for one year and then have to take it, but Bubu seems like someone who could handle that.

    2011 is for the most part done but it's possible we still sign someone. For the most part we have 4 for 2012 now with McKnight and Odunsi no longer in the picture.

    Re: 4 schollies available, IMHO where they go

    I'll be shocked if two aren't added this spring.
    We're in position to make a big move if the right pieces are added.

    Re: 4 schollies available, IMHO where they go

    They could add me. I won't complain about my lack of playing time, and I sure won't hurt the depth chart.

    It might be entertaining to see me get in the game. Once.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    remember when everyone was so worried about being "over" the scholarship count?

    Re: 4 schollies available, IMHO where they go

    Please stop with the Bubu and scholarship talk...dude is not a big 12 scholarship player...if you watched him at all this year you would have seen that....I for one would like to see Iowa State finish out of the big 12 cellar, thats where we will be if you waste scholarships giving them away to guys like Bubu.

    Bubu should get the scholarship if it's just lying around gathering dust.

    I still want Elgin Cook here, so hopefully we stay after him.
