    Re: Will Blalock Has Resurfaced

    There are a few "Tinsley" moves in that video. When Will played for ISU I was a big fan of his, but later I read that he was sour on his time at ISU. He was here post Elite 8 and got the impression that he felt he got a raw deal with the sudden changes in our program. Is that right?

    That is correct. He was butt-hurt. He was playing for Morgan, not ISU. I remember when I talked to Will after his junior year and I asked him what he was planning on doing. He said, "I'm getting the **** out of here." That's when I kind of lost respect for Will Blalock.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Will Blalock Has Resurfaced

    I can understand Will's feelings, I still get ****** about that how deal went down.
    LE didnt respect BVD, BVD was waiting to get rid of Coach
    Pete Taylor died (side note, John Walters is a Pete 'Clone)
    LE needed help, ISU said F U... (had Pete been alive, I think LE would have kept his job)
    I would guess that Curtis & Rahshon felt similar; Curtis seems more connected/closer recently; those 3 gave a lot to our program, plus it requires a certain degree of maturity to see thru the BS that was going on.
    Regardless, we had to go thru those dark days to get to CFH. I cant imagine what would have to go down to reverse our current trend. I hope we honor those 3 sometime soon, possibly when the j kHawks come to town.

    There has yet to be a clever meme developed that would adequately capture the Fail of this statement.

    A more accurate version would be:

    BVD confronted LE (on multiple occasions), LE said F U...

    I can respect Will's loyalty to WM, but both he and Curtis decided to declare early BEFORE WM was fired. For all I know they were told that WM was going to be fired before anyone else and that's why they decided to leave early, but still...

    Other than the coaching change (which again happened after WB decided to go pro), I'm not quite sure what he has to ***** about regarding his time here. He got plenty of playing time, played in the NIT Final Four in MSG as a freshmen, and made the NCAA tournament and won a 1st round game as a sophomore. Compared to somebody like Diante Garrett who never came close to even sniffing the post-season in his four seasons WB had it made.

    Re: Will Blalock Has Resurfaced

    I forgot to mention that he also was drafted by the NBA, albeit with the very last pick, but IMO he has plenty to be thankful for with his time at ISU.

    Will feels like he was tricked into coming to ISU and regrets that decision. If not for his handler he would have been at Georgetown

    Now THATS his real problem.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Did he sign the wrong LOI? That is pretty mean of his handler.

    They all played hard while here at ISU dispite the poor leadership structure going on. ISU was its own worst enimy at that time making a lot of bad moves when it came to the hoops program.
