    Looks good, though I would guess that people will slide between the 2 and 3 and between the 3 and 4 pretty consistently.

    Re: 2012-2013 Depth Chart in my opinion

    That's very possible, but with the depth at guard, and honestly, the lack of it at the bigs, I could see ISU going with a 3 guard offense a lot of the time. The only listed center on the team is Gibson, and if you think back to last year, how often did he really play that position? Also, Babb and McGee are both decent rebounders.

    I could see starters of Lucious, Babb, McGee, Clyburn and Melvin.

    Also, you listed Okoro as a forward, he is a guard, although he is 6 5. You had Booker listed as a center, and to my knowledge he has never played that position anywhere.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Agreed. Clyburn will play a 3/2/4. Okoro a 3/2. Niang a 4/5/3. Ejim a 4/3. Babb a 2/3. Booker a 5/4.

    Okoro is a wing which is a small forward. Booker is a stretch 4 but will be forced to play inside more this year i think considering we don't have Royce as a post presence or Railey baha. I don't think we can guard with Melvin and Clyburn at the PF and C. It would be an awesome offensive lineup though.

    Yeah, we will have to wait and see how strong Okoro is at rebounding I guess. He is supposed to be a good defender. Sometimes you have to make the other team react to your offense. Look at Missouri last year. They normally had 4 "guards" on the floor and they certainly competed. They should not have lost in tourney as early as they did. I just think ISU has some pretty good size and depth at guard and I could see it happening. I think the offensive output could outweigh any defensive concerns. Just my humble opinion.

    I agree, I think we might have that flexibility. I could also see that if Clyburn is overmatched by a particular PF, that he might get in foul trouble - that will be the last thing we want.

    But - Babb has shown he can handle guarding SF - mostly on account of his strength. That can allow McGee to get in at the SG spot.

    I don't think Niang can be a 5. He's only 6'7" tall... the same as Will Clyburn. He's thicker than Clyburn, but he's still too short to be a 5.

    Hard to tell. Royce was our 5 last year at 6'8" which he wasn't really even that tall. Gibson and Booker are only 6'9" and Gibson's defense was extremely lacking which is why he did not play as much last year according to Freddy.

    I'd contend that Royce was our PG last year.

    Anyone else completely psyched that we have Melvin for two more years? I think he could be our go-to guy as a senior.
