    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    "Worst-case scenario: The Cyclones struggle early and the chemistry of a team made up of mostly transfers is not good."

    Sounds familiar.

    If it turns out as well as last season's worst-case scenario, I can probably live with it.

    Agreed. Not sure how chemistry is more of a concern than rebounding and defense in the post.

    Niang or Booker or Gibson for that 5th starting spot? Discuss.

    the "best-case scenario" sounds pretty good to me

    Re: CBS Sports ISU Preview

    I also found this article relatively accurate, especially for an ousider analysis.

    I think, unless Booker or Gibson pick it up dramatically in the early non-conference games, or unless suddenly Niang fails, then Niang will be the starter by the time conference play rolls around. He may be a starter earlier depending on some match-ups.

    However, I don't really think it matters too much who starts on a Hoiberg-coached team. It's probably just more a matter of pride and attention than anything.

    This. Plus I think all 3 of them will be fouling enough to make sure there is plenty of PT to go around.

    Re: CBS Sports ISU Preview

    In my non-expert opinion, the team will go as far as Lucious takes them. He needs to play disciplined ball and make sure guys are getting touches. I am worried that Booker and Gibson will go long stretches without seeing the ball and then start to mope. Our perimeter guys are good but will need to guard against trying to win the game everytime they touch the ball. Should be a really fun season, we have some good players.

    Re: CBS Sports ISU Preview

    I think Niang, Booker, and Gibson will all share PT. We can have 2 of them in when we want to play big, or we can have just one in if we want to play small. Lots of possibilities.

    would've been nice to have a cbs blogger for us who's not a KU guy, but oh well.
