    What an awful article...

    Five Questions For... Iowa State Cyclones - Big 12 Hoops

    Bored at 4 a.m. and found this. I don't know where to start. You would think given the website they would be a little more knowledgeable.

    MP: I'm going with Christopherson. He can flat out shoot the basketball. Though I'm tempted to take Lucious, who should see a very big role change and showed a lot of promise for a talented Michigan State team. White certainly have the most talent of any of the players on the roster, but he hasn't played D-I level basketball in a long time

    He should have stopped after his first two sentences.

    Morning, Nate. Beat me to the article. Looks like the blogger decided to come up with some questions and did not bring much to the table other than questions.

    I question the source considering they still have Colorado and Nebraska in their logo.

    saw this, too. Why oh why can't the people writing this stuff understand that transfers (who have not graduated from their previous institution AND gotten a waiver from the NCAA) have to sit out a year!!!!! What limited credibility they have goes out the window at that point.

    Re: What an awful article...

    Will Craig have a big year?

    Can Diante follow up the huge growth of his senior season?

    Will Wesley Johnson finally be 1st Team All-Big XII?

    Will Stinson and Blaylock have career years?

    How many points will Clyburn have this year? I would think he would score more than Lucious, and would help Lucious clean up on the assists.

    I need a blog. Or Twitter. Or something.

    Why mention it? Why link to it? Why acknowledge it?

    All it takes is a little bit of research. Just a little bit. Do that and you won't look like a complete fool.

    Doing research means I have to know things and learn things, even ask questions. That stuff is hard.

    Agreed. It's much easier to just try and remember stuff that you heard before and write it down as fact. Probably, no one will notice. Probably.

    I anticipate that Grayer kid from Michigan being a stud for us.

    That kid from Ames.. Hoiblock? or something. Probably won't amount to much.

    This thread is the equivalent of taking a drink of sour milk and handing it to someone and saying “try this.”

    Can't believe Johnny is bring in Hoiblock, that tall Meyer kid, and Earl Beachman. 3 freshman from Iowa? Seriously? Might as well get used to the bottom of the big 8.

    And why would we? Words are hard to read and harder to understand.
