    OSU player postgame interview

    I haven't read many threads from yesterday, so I apologize if this was discussed already. If you haven't yet watched the player postgame on Cyclones.com, go check it out. They interviewed all of the seniors together, and I was kind of surprised at how tight their bond appeared to be. Booker was responding to a question when he said "I love these guys like brothers." At least 3 of the 4 responded immediately with an "I love you too" right in the middle of Booker's comments.

    I was really struck by that as I didn't necessarily think that a senior class full of transfers would be quite that tight. Was cool to see, and you can tell these guys aren't done fighting for each other.

    I think it's really different when everyone came here on their second chance whether it was forced or optional. I think, especially in Luscious' case, this has been more than basketball and you see a maturity in these guys you don't see in a lot of seniors.

    Or so I have read.

    That's really awesome. I think Fred had a hand in that also, I can really see the team being a "family" situation. I wanna see these playing several more games together...just win guys!

    Re: OSU player postgame interview

    What did booker say that everyone laughed at? Was that the love comment?

    He almost said "s---" and quickly replaced it with "stuff".

    Re: OSU player postgame interview

    Booker said, "I don't wanna die..." meaning he didn't want the season to end, but it sounded like he was talking about death.

    Re: OSU player postgame interview

    I must not have ever heard Booker in an interview before. On the court he looks/plays like a tough SOB. Didn't expect him to be so emotional and shy. Seems like a really nice guy

    Loved Babb's interview on radio. Said he came here on a visit and Fred wouldn't let him leave without a commitment. Said having a guy showing that much faith in him sold him on ISU.

    Re: OSU player postgame interview

    That press conference was so interesting to me. I am intrigued by these seniors. They are an interesting bunch. Watching Korie and Chris, especially....those guys took their time leaving the court last night.

    They've had some rotten luck this year and they could ahve all easily been jaded and decided to tank the season. That's the assumption sometimes with kids who have been around the block. But each time they have gotten knocked down, they've gotten back up.

    It's a good group of players that I will really miss watching next year. Hoiberg is exactly right....they put this program back on the map. I think it is extremely fitting that it took a group of transfers to rebuild a program that was hurt by a lot of players transfering.

    Now, I hope they can go out and play their ***** off Saturday and officially get off that bubble.

    And Babb's dad telling him that Iowa State's new coach was Hoiberg and Babb was like who the heck is Hoiberg? :)

    Love this group but White, Scotty, and Allen deserve a lot of credit too.

    Re: OSU player postgame interview

    I like looking back on all the old threads when these guys committed as transfers or were considering us. Just reading through all the Royce White ones and seeing not a lot of people wanting him, made me laugh. Everyone was pretty positive on Babb though.

    Re: OSU player postgame interview

    I'll admit, out of the four transfers we got when Fred got here, Babb was the one I was the least excited about. He was coming from Penn State (not exactly a bball power) and was only a 3 star recruit out of HS (the others were either 4 or 5). Well, I could not have been more wrong about having that feeling originally. Babb has probably been the best defender to wear an ISU uniform since Bankhead, and we will miss him greatly next year.
