    Who has already graduated?

    As proud as I am to cheer for the various Cyclone sports teams, it makes me even more proud when they accomplish athletic success while also achieving academic success. The article about Booker indicated that his mother commented that he received what she wanted, his degree, and I remember reading about WC stating that he had his degree at the end of last semester. Obviously Melvin is in track to earn his degree since he is scholar athlelete of the year for the entire Big 12. Does anybody know how else of the seniors might have already graduated, and how the other players are doing academically? I remember last year the team grade point was above 3.0, pretty impressive for a D1 basketball program.
    Based upon what I have read about the new recruit blue eyes is chasing, they all seem to be strong students so it would appear his focus is on athletes that will make the Cyclones fan base proud for their accomplishments both on and off the field. For me, this makes me twice as proud to be a Cyclone.

    Re: Who has already graduated?

    Couldn't hear the PA over the crowd where I was sitting on senior night, but I think all of the RS seniors (Lucious, Clyburn, Babb, Booker) got theirs in the summer or fall semesters already.

    All the seniors except for Tyrus have already graduated. Lucious, Clyburn, Babb, Booker, and McBeth all received their degrees already.

    And Tyrus is one class away, right?

    It's an impressive achievement across the board.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Correct, Hoiberg said that on one of cyclonefanatic's videos. Maybe the senior day one, but I'm not sure.

    Re: Who has already graduated?

    How do we get the TV announcers to talk about that on the air. You have to think the parent of any potential recruit would love to hear that if you play until you are senior at ISU, Hoiberg will make sure you attend classes and get that degree. Having all the seniors with degrees might be more of an accomplishment that what they accomplished on the court. Count me as one proud Cyclone.

    Yep Tyrus will be the last to graduate in the summer. I think Babb, Booker, and McBeth have graduated. Clyburn and Lucious are gonna graduate at the end of this semester. Tyrus after the first summer term i'm sure.

    Re: Who has already graduated?

    I'm shocked all these bad seeds have graduated or are about to. What was Fred thinking when he tried the transfer strategy?????

    Not only is it a great personal achievement for them all, but it means they have more time to work on their games with all that free time probably!

    Re: Who has already graduated?

    Really a great accomplishment for all of them. Babb and Booker graduated in 4 years. Korie and Will did in 4.5. And Tyrus is very close.

    It's kind of silly to be proud of people that you don't know, but I am kind of proud of them.
