    Re: return of Bubu

    i never have understood the blind lovefest for bubu on here. I'm guessing it has to be because he's an "ames guy".

    how many times do you need to see bubu wildly try to drive the lane, bank a poorly timed awkward layup attempt off the shot clock, and then foul somebody scrambling for the rebound to see that he is just not very good. i would much rather see a young guy with potential to develop get time then see bubu running around out there.

    Re: return of Bubu

    If Fred thinks Bubu is good enough to be a Big-12 player, then Bubu is. I trust Fred's judgment.

    Why do you have to slam a kid who works that hard for the Cyclones?

    Oh, okay, I get it now. You do not actually believe or have put any thought behind your contention, but where just trying to have some fun at the expense of one of our players. Let me guess, next target is Booker for not being the All-Conference player you had convinced yourself he would be?

    kids on the football practice squad work very hard for the cyclones, that doesn't mean I want to see them play on Saturday if they aren't as good as what we're already putting out there.

    i watch bubu play and I don't think that he is very good. it is my opinion. maybe your opinion is different, and that's fine.

    I think our team is playing pretty well right now with the guys we've had all year. they appear to be coming together at the right time. I don't see bubu making the group better

    It is fine to have an opinion, but could you at least base it on reality? If not, expect to continue to get called out for posting your drivel.

    The post I quoted wasn't just about not wanting to see him play. It was an unnecessary mean spirited slam. Grow up.

    Re: return of Bubu

    It'll be nice for Bubu to come in and give Lucious a breather without having to have Clyburn run the point. Some people may bash on him because he's not "up to their standard", but giving Lucious a breather every game with a player that plays great defense will be beneficial in the long run.

    So frickin jealous of what they have in Ames. It's truly amazing what Fred has done coming in with 0 coaching experience.

    Our team is playing well right now yes. Granted we haven't beaten a good team and have lost to every good team that we have played. BYU is average at best even though they are 15-5. Their best win is against 11-7 Virginia Tech. And I know we should have beaten Kansas.

    With Bubu we will be a better team. Lucious played terrible in 3 of our 4 losses. Bubu might have given us a better chance to win those games, and he might have been the difference of a 15-2 record compared to a 13-4 record which we have right now.

    I'm just going to have to agree to disagree here. your opinion of bubu's talent is clearly far different than mine.
