    Don't Believe the HYPE...

    Don't Believe the HYPE, just believe what you see!!!

    This team was told how good they were going to be all last year, you need to earn it. Losing to Drake is going to be part of the road to becoming what ever we are eventually going to become. Our own coach was tooting their horn all season long last year and setting them up for this and should have known better.

    Watching the game last night when we were swapping Bubu and Scotty in the last five minutes of the game I thought to myself, I have seen this song and dance before and I don't like it. Playing Bubu and Scotty is kind of like playing B. Peterson, C. McIntosh, and S. Haluska, none of these guys are legit Big 12 talent. None of these guys have should have ever started in the Big 12 and none of these guys should have every been on the court for extended periods of time unless they were 3-point sharp shooting specialist. Scotty is not fast enough to start and is a specialist at best, he is a defensive liability. I have nothing against him, but have been following ISU basketball since the late 80's and know when I see Big 12 starting talent. Coming into this season I knew if Scotty was starting over Babb, McGee, Allen, and Ejim that we would definitely not be a tournament team.

    In my opinion when Railey gets back he should be starting within 2-3 weeks. He can take the pressure off of White as well as the guards defensively, his height gives us shot blocking and rebounding. Ejim is not a 4-man and we need to get him back to be a 3-man. This would also help our team rebound and match up defensively in the Big 12. WE ARE WORRYING TO MUCH ABOUT STARTING GUYS RIGHT NOW THAT WILL HELP US WIN NOW WHEN WE HAVE GUYS STARTING THAT CAN'T HELP US WIN CONSISTENTLY COME BIG 12 PLAY!!!

    All that being said, I respect Fred and want him to succeed in the worst way.

    Re: Don't Believe the HYPE...

    My point being that we need to start guys that are Big 12 talent that need to learn the hard way by making mistakes along the way. Then and only then we will reap the rewards of their talents.

    In my opinion we should be starting
    1. McGee/Allen-back up would be Allen/McGee

    2. Babb-back up Allen/McGee

    3. Ejim-back up Babb

    4. White-back up Booker/Gibson

    5. Railey-back up Booker/Gibson

    -Primary back ups are Booker and Allen/McGee which ever one is not starting.
    -Scotty comes in if we are need of scoring and to spell Babb, Allen, or McGee.
    -We need to give Sledge and Gibson every minute possible to let them gain experience or redshirt them.

    Let me highlight All-Big 12 Honorable mention and currently ISU career leader in 3 point percentage at 43.7%, in case you skip the essentials.

    Re: Don't Believe the HYPE...

    I hope Scotty doesn't read this board. Good night, this is really getting out of control.

    Congrats, Scotty, on suddenly and surprisingly winning the "Irrationally Hated Cyclone" Award. Probably not what you were shooting for, but that's why it's a surprise.

    As a board, do we have some unstated quota to fill in Scotty-related complaints this week?


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

    Go from the best 3 point shooter by percentage in program history to two bad games at an uncomfortable PG position and you should be kicked off the team.

    I have pretty much been on this site since day one and a former CR subscriber. If you are not going to post something constructive don't post please. I am looking for diehard cyclone basketball fans to give some constructive thoughts.
