    Some good basketball news

    I just spoke to a member of the coaching staff.

    The Iowa State men's basketball team finished with the highest GPA in program history last year at 3.05.

    Thought I'd pass this along.

    How can that be? ISU Men's basketball is nothing but thugs, right?

    Re: Some good basketball news

    Well this one is obvious. Fred is spending too much time preaching academics and not enough time on the court. He also is slacking on teaching them what not to do in public. This is a downward spiral.

    Re: Some good basketball news

    Do they get some sort of credits per GPA point that they can then use to purchase a 6'8" power forward?

    Although if they're like me they'll end up blowing 40M in credits betting on the NCAA tourney...

    They beat up their teachers for pot money, and then stood over them when they entered their grades.

    It's not hard if you decide to be paranoid.

    No wonder why we sucked so much last year. We spent way too much time studying and not enough time practicing. Get it together Fred, DRAMA!!

    While that is impressive news...I would happily settle for a team GPA of 2.05 with a Sweet Sixteen appearance to boot!
