    7ft Serbians

    CFH mentioned when he was first starting as head coach that he was going to be recruiting some 7ft Serbians. I'm still waiting on my 7ft Serbian. We need them on the squad.


    a/s/l?

    Re: 7ft Serbians

    What, is Serbia bursting at the seems with 7 footers? All I can think of is Vlade Divac? Does he have some eligibility left?

    I think we should be the first to start a pipeline from North Korea. They love basketball over there...

    Vlade was the Croatian Sensation, same part of the world though and all together under the former Yugoslavia. Darko Millicic is Serbian though and he sure turned out to be a great one.

    Whoever our Serbian is...I'm positive he's ineligible if he choses ISU.

    Re: 7ft Serbians

    Miroslav Jaksic is 6-11 and is Serbian but is playing in Michigan. Does that count?

    In which parallel universe?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Common player, Vlade is Serbian just like Peja Stojakovic. You need to watch "Once Brothers" 30 for 30 on ESPN. You might be thinking of Croatians Toni Kukoc or Drazen Petrovic (father Serbian, mother Croatian).

    Chireav... wasn't he the Canadian that we called Ivan Drago? He thought he'd skip college and go right to the NBA wearing a top-hat. Speaking of foreigners, I haven't heard anything about Lucca Stiger(sp) Thank G..

    Yeah it would be nice, but we outrebounded a lot of teams this year with a modest height line up.

    Do they still shoot 50's style underhand freethrows over there?

    Re: 7ft Serbians

    I believe Fred said his brother was coaching in Europe and he told him not to come home unless he brings a 7 footer.

    Re: 7ft Serbians

    Fred had a substantial hand in drafting Nikola Pekovic (though he's from Yugoslavia) and I imagine he had him in mind when making that statement.
