    I still hate the Squawks, but shows how classy Fred is.

    I am friends with the Street family. Chris's sister has a kid that is a monster and will probably be a D1 offensive lineman. He is a 6th grader and got the Street family genes. He is about 5'10 185 pounds already. Good family.

    I would like to see the #40 tradition continued as long as we have an Iowa player to wear it.

    I actually asked CW about the #40 tradition a while back in the CF Mailbag, and he was unaware of it. I'd assumed that it was just one of those things that only the really old fans were aware of, and let it slip from my mind as a thing of importance.

    I agree, though, I would like to see it continued.

    It would be cool. I was unaware of it as well.

    I believe it is the reason Harrison Barnes has worn/wears #40.

    he was asked that at one point, if I remember correctly. He said he chose the number 40 because of Austin Arnaud.

    Ouch. I prefer the term "better fans", since we've been fans longer than you kids.

    Re: Hoiberg Article from hawkland

    "really old fans", cause 20 years ago with SOO long ago... fans with greater knowledge about ISU basketball sounds more accurate.

    The article was nice, I noticed they were quick to point out that we currently have 3 guys from Iowa but no one wears that number.

    I think it's neat we did it but don't think it is necessary to carry it on personally.

    Didn't ISU have someone wear Brian Pearson's #3 for a couple of years after he died of brain cancer?

    Re: Hoiberg Article from hawkland

    It was a big deal when it happened. It really rocked the state, especially given that it was a government safety vehicle that was part of the accident.

    While it would be nice for a player to wear it, maybe now this is "out there" again, it might come back. While I thought a big deal of it back then, Chris meant something to Fred and Loren, if anything, the kids on the team might do it now to honor their coach. Otherwise, I'm okay with it passing.

    I picked "really old" because, well, 20 years is actually quite a long time to follow a team enough to recognize the pedantry that this sort of tradition belongs in. 20 years is long enough that the Junior Class at Iowa State were mostly conceived after Chris died. I constitute that as a long enough time.....

    As for fans with greater knowledge... I'm not sure that knowing why Fred switched to #40 for his Junior season counts as something other than a fairly pedantic factoid, not actual knowledge.

    I was hopeful that Fred would bring it back after McDoormat let it die, but once he didn't, I was ok with it passing, as well. Now it wouldn't seem quite so special.
