    Denard Eats Celebration - YouTube

    Denard Robinson started doing this in 2011 and he always said it symbolized being hungry for two years and then they were eating. Don't know what Babbs means but I'm guessing something similar.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Babb "reeling in" thing

    I am being serious when I said it came from a trainer. A buddy of mine even asked Babb when he was out last weekend if that was where he got it and he said yes.

    I'm guessing if an iowa player did that, they'd be perfectly fine with it.

    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    If an Iowa player did it and anybody noticed....


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Re: Babb "reeling in" thing

    His line is "Eat or Get Ate" so when he makes a 3, it means "Keep Eating"

    Babb needs to write a letter of apology to OK for this.

    Re: Babb "reeling in" thing

    Turns out there's no "real" meaning to it, except it's fun and it's a sign his shot is "heating up". Here's an article on it from today:Big 12 notes: Arlington Oakridge ex leads Iowa State | Dallas-Fort Worth Sports News - Sports...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Iowa State guard Chris Babb knows all about eating. His dad Mike and uncles Bob and Davy own and run Babb Bros. BBQ and Blues in Dallas.
    Chris Babb, a graduate of Arlington Oakridge School, also knows about “eating” on the basketball court. He coined Iowa State’s “let’s eat” mantra and its corresponding eating motion that signals Babb’s shot is heating up.
    That was the case in the second half Thursday when the Cyclones (22-10) defeated Oklahoma 73-66 in the Big 12 men’s quarterfinals.
    A buffet of hot shooting helped ISU overcome a famished first half when it was 1 for 12 from 3-point range. The Cyclones made 6 of 14 3-pointers and shot 50 percent overall in the second half to overcome a 14-point deficit.
    Babb’s 3-pointer with 36 seconds remaining gave the Cyclones a five-point cushion.
    ISU advanced to play top-seed Kansas (27-5) at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the semifinals.
    Babb scored 10 points and grabbed six rebounds. Babb and ISU hope the “eating” continues against the Jayhawks.
    “It’s just something we do,” said Babb, who initiated the gesture during a hot-shooting night at Oklahoma State on Jan. 30. “All of the guys on the bench do it whenever I hit a shot. I had it going and it kind of clicked, and we just kept on doing it. I just try to make this game fun. When you start thinking too much you get your head out of it.”
