    No more DRAMA please!!! My concerns...

    I am concerned about the ISU BBall future
    1. Phillips transfers
    2. Elwin McCroy is hired and leaves within one year
    3. Railey gets in trouble multiple times
    4. Lutz leaves after one year
    5. Mann hired then gets a DUI
    6. Godfrey dismissed
    7. Transfers with shaky pasts

    I didn't like the fact that during the non-conference portion of the schedule that Godfrey and Railey did not play more. It came back to bite us in the conference season. They missed a lot of valuable minutes. We seemed to be very weak mentally but GMAC can take the blame for installing a losing atmosphere.
    I love Freddy's offensive sets, but am very concerned about his defense. I just hope he puts the best five guys on the floor regardless of their tenure at ISU.

    Sucks to lose our best big man the last two seasons, Hamilton and Godfrey unexpectedly. Whose to say that it isn't one more strike and your out for Railey, White, Allen, and Lucious. I am really disappointed with the retention of Mann, I would expect to lose a new job if I got one and got a DUI when it is a job that is often in the spotlight. I think these things have a way of working themselves out and hopefully it doesn't come back to bite Freddy later. It seems we can never get through and off season without some drama. I hope I am worrying about nothing.

    1. Philips wont be missed.
    2. Who cares
    3. We will see how Railey deals with the summer.
    4. Lutz wanted to go home to his family. Can you blame him? We knew it was a short run.
    5. Mann's DUI relax was it bad yes bad not crippling.
    6. Godfrey did himself in.
    7. Transfers are fine with me.

    Relax and take a deep breathe.

    Nope, he's going to put the worst guys he can on the floor to make sure we lose games. Do people honestly think coaches don't put the best guys they can on the floor? My God.

    1. Cost us possibly other recruits short term, but long term Phillips leaving is not a big deal.
    2. Not a concern
    3. A concern, but Railey hasn't shown yet that he will be a major contributor yet.
    4. Shouldn't be lumped with these others. It was a personal decision and I still would have wanted him for one year over none.
    5. Stupid mistake, but first offense. He still has time to redeem himself.
    6. This is the big one and every thing else is small in comparison. It hurts to lose Godfrey.
    7. I see no point in even mentioning this unless you just wanted to have seven points instead of six. Unrelated.

    Only ones that are concerns for me are 3, 5 and 6.

    The irony in this thread is comical.

    Don't want any more drama? Don't post over-reactionary threads over things that aren't a huge deal.

    I completely agree except for point #1. Phillips didn't cost us anything. FH was hired late and he wasn't going to get anyone good at that point. ISU would have been worse off getting someone who wasn't very good that stuck around. At least Phillips leaving opened up a scholarship right away.

    Godfrey getting booted hurts for sure. He was a risk from the start, though. GMac went after him out of desperation and FH kept him out of desperation.

    You don't want no drama. No, no, no, no Drama.

    All these crazy threads are entertaining, but rational? no.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Does not = drama. Larry + Natty + Coeds = drama.
