    Marcus Paige make McD's All American game

    did we go after him, or was he simply "too good" to stick around and play for a home state school?

    Re: Marcus Paige make McD's All American game

    He was mainly recruited under Mac if that tells you anything. I bet Fred would have given us a better shot, but he said he was always a unc fan so even then it would have been a long shot.

    Re: Marcus Paige make McD's All American game

    I believe we were the first to offer him when he was in 8th grade. His interest in us only lasted about a year before the big boys came in.

    Not that I wouldn't want him on the team, but I still like what we have coming in next year


    I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned

    I'm pretty sure we tried but it was pretty hopeless even from the start.

    I was told well before Fred was hired that he was going to a big program and to not get my panties in a bunch.

    He's a good player, but I've never been McD AA impressed by him. Congrats to him I guess.

    Re: Marcus Paige make McD's All American game

    With kids like this recruiting started 3 or 4 years ago, Freddie got in the game too late to make a serious run at Paige so IMO he knew resources could be better used to go after other kids. It was a smart business move.

    He'll learn when ISU is in the top 5 next year and making a run at a championship.

    its a shame that the state of the iowa and isu programs have been so abysmal that neither program had much of a shot to land two of the best prospects to ever come out of iowa in barnes and paige. makes you wonder if we were a legit big 12 contender (and stable in terms of coaching) if we could have landed barnes and/or paige. if i recall, barnes was actually interested in isu, but we had mcdisaster with one foot out the door.

    oh what could have been

    I've seen him quite a bit. When he is forced to take over he can be awesome but he doesn't force the issue. I saw him drop 46 on Prairie because he had to. At UNC I don't expect him to be a big scorer until there are games where he really needs to.

    He's more substance than style and is very deserving.
