    nice. Really going to miss him, not just for who he was on the court, but for who he was off of it. One of my favorite Cyclones of all time.

    Actually I was disappointed that they used highlights of the wrong Royce White. The guy in that highlight reel couldn't pass a lick. I like our Royce White more.

    So, what did he say? I read a Kentucky fan post that quoted him as saying "I'm the best player in the nation," but have heard others who think he said "I'm the best player on the floor."

    Also, who was he talking to? I've heard that he was staring at the bench, but it seems like he might be staring at Anthony Davis.

    At any rate, some Kentucky fans point to this as a game-changer, namely that Kentucky went on a tear after this. As I watched the game, I was looking to see if Kentucky players were giving it back to him and it didn't seem like they were (except for going on a run and winning the game). It seems like they would have been talking back to him during the end and after the game if he had said it to Davis.

    I don't know, so this seemed like a good place to try to nail it down for sure.

    I thought he said it to the Cyclone fans in the audience.

    That was my impression. He appeared to be looking over the scorer's table/Cyclone bench towards our fans.

    Love that video, but a Royce White tribute HAS to have passing. It just has to. Never in the history of Iowa State basketball have we had a big man passer like him. Hell, college basketball has seen few of them.

    Anyone up to the challenge of making a Royce White passing highlight video!?

    This would explain why there wasn't an overt reaction from the Kentucky players.

    At the time, I thought if he was talking to Kentucky players, it was going to be one of the coolest moments in sports history if he led us to the upset win (or a colossal mistake if he started something he couldn't finish). Turns out that it may not have even been that much of a game factor other than him getting fired up for a moment that didn't translate into much game impact.

    Isn't that the same song from the OSU/ISU football game hit tape?

    Royce wasn't taunting the Kentucky players, he was yelling to our fans and crowd. The Kentucky fans that claim otherwise are full of ****.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    That was my point exactly. Passing is what makes Royce the closest thing there is to unique in college ball today and the reel doesn't have a single Royce pass in it. Looking at it from the outside (as many who would read this article would) I would say: Pretty good, but what puts him head and shoulders over everybody else? If his passing was in there everyone would see.

    He was saying it to the Cyclone fan section. The Kentucky players were already on the way to their bench.
