    Fred's Giant Arm

    Has anybody else noticed in the photo for the MBB Recruiting Update Fred seems to have one giant arm? I never noticed it while he was playing so I'm wondering how this came about. Also, I'm debating whether I would want to have a giant arm.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Also, his hand is bigger than his head.

    Re: Fred's Giant Arm

    It's just an optical illusion. His arm is actually much bigger than that.

    Re: Fred's Giant Arm

    Explanation # 1: The photo was probably taken very close with a wide angle lens. That will cause distortions such as the giant arm.

    Explanation #2: That is his free-throw shooting arm.

    Nope. Turn 50 in September. You're only young once, but you can be immature forever.

    Re: Fred's Giant Arm

    Is this free-throw shooting contest even fair? I mean, if all he has to do is drop a ball through the hoop...

    Re: Fred's Giant Arm

    Ha... yeah, that pic has looked weird to me for the year too! I bet he could be stopped at a red light and roll down his window and just reach out and push the button for pedestrians to cross to make the red light "hurry up and turn green." Now that's a super power-

    The Mayor still rocks.

    Re: Fred's Giant Arm

    I think we got pretty lucky when Fred chose BBall at ISU instead of FB at UNL. Can you imagine the kind of NFL QB Fred could have been with that gigantic cannon?

    Re: Fred's Giant Arm

    I had noticed that too. No wonder he was such a good ball player. He could not only palm the BB, he could wrap his hand clear around the ball. Notice that his hand is even quite a bit larger than his tiny little head.
