    Occam's razor: Baylor not on the level

    Since another poster took so much abuse for posting that he thought Baylor cheats after a loss...I agree with him and will post it after a win as well.

    Occam's razor: all things being equal, a simpler explanation is better than a more complex one.

    What's the simple explanation? A team that has NEVER won a game in Ames against Iowa State, has never won a Big 12 championship and has never won a Big 12 tournament, gets multiple elite blueblood level recruiting classes without cheating coming off a murder coverup? Or that they cheat?

    The latter is easily the simpler explanation. ISU has had periods of greater basketball success and never came anywhere near landing classes like they have had recently.

    I'm focused on the win and SC's great senior day, just wanted to point out that people who think this is very probable don't just think it whenever ISU loses to Baylor, they can think it when ISU beats Baylor as well.

    How about the simplest answer being, "We beat 'em, who cares?"

    Re: Occam's razor: Baylor not on the level

    i think the simple fact that almost no big 12 coaches show scott drew any respect gives you the only answer you need... he lies, cheats, and steals...

    They probably cheat, but so does the rest of the conference. Perry Jones' Mom all but said that OSU and Texas offered money.

    Love It!!!!!!

    I stayed away from the Boards for a day, but this guy pays attention. HFCS deserves more rep points than can be given, by me and everyone else frankly.....

    Re: Occam's razor: Baylor not on the level

    Werll, it is a little strange that a church school of 7,000 is recruiting so well when UT cannot put together a comparable awe inspiring team. How long has Rick Barnes been around? 1998?

    College Confidential: Four #Baylor players, #Texas G Brown honored by #Big12 men's BKB coaches

    At least Scotty made third team.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Occam's razor: Baylor not on the level

    I hope when coach Rhoads finally starts pulling in 4 or 5 star players people don't start thinking that we cheat because why else would those players want to play here.

    I would think ISU is a much easier place to recruit to for basketball than Baylor. You have better facilities, a fan base that cares/supports it, and Ames is routinely listed as a "best place to live" while Waco is routinely listed as a "worst place to live". ISU has better basketball history as well over the past 1/4 century and wasn't coming off the death penalty/one of the worst scandals in college sports history.

    The only external advantage Baylor would have is A) weather and B) proximity to home for Texas players.

    There are a lot more logical explanations for ISU's return to basketball success than Baylor's rise.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    All who are justifying ISU success over Baylor are adding to Occam's razor. We just beat BU, maybe you should let this go??? dweebs

    Not really. How many people currently on Iowa State's roster could choose great offers over us? Now how many at Baylor chose Baylor over offers from Kentucky, UNC, Duke, etc.? How many were competing with us for Chris Allen, Chris Babb, Scott Christopherson, Royce White, Anthony Booker, etc? Not many because they were transfers.

    Why is Scott Drew one of the most widely disliked coaches in the country? Because he ****** off the coaching fraternity, which is really impressive considering some of the slime balls coaching.
