    Did Scotty and Chris miss the memo

    Congratulations to them as well as Bubu and Melvin for making the All Academic Big XII team. I thought transfers were supposed to be a bunch of misfits and thugs. At least that is what a few of my Hawkeye friends like to say.

    Re: Did Scotty and Chris miss the memo

    Melvin has a 3.8 GPA.. I think they said that on the Hoiberg show.


    That guy is slowly becoming my favorite Cyclone.


    I also think Hoiberg stated this teams GPA is the highest our basketball program has been.

    I had Melvin in one of my classes last year. He seems like a smart guy.

    No that just means everyone else on the team that didn't make this are thugs.

    Wow, when I was at ISU I could only dream about a 3.8. I was just a little more than half as smart as Melvin.

    Kudos to Melvin for achieving 3.8 while playing D1 bball. I def didn't get that and I didn't even play D1 bball.

    My reaction to Chris Allen was one of surprise. The media labeled the transfers as misfits. SportsCenter type reporters mention Hoiberg's recruiting method with skepticism, and then CA earns 2nd Team Academic All Big 12. That is great news.

    I doubt that the academic awards will be mentioned in the media.

    Congrats to these guys on being good students and athletes!
    Isn't Chris Allen the only transfer out of those 4?

    The first time I saw "misfits" in the media was in a quote from Royce. I don't know if that was the first it was used, but that's where I first saw it.

    It sounded to me like Royce was wearing it as a badge of honor.
