    What makes you think we are out for Abu? His top 10 came out last week and we were on it.

    Re: RECRUITING: Some possible visits for the fall

    I can't wait to see what Fred does with a legitimate shot swatter to back up our guards on defense. Can you imagine what will happen when the guards are busy realling in the block shots and breaking down the court? The scoring average will explode!

    Maybe it was just a bad dream but it's less than five years ago that we were taking picked-over JUCOs and JUCO walk-ons----in May and June.

    I'll never forget Bo Barnes choosing Hawaii over Iowa State.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Unless you are 90 years old with a heart condition, it will happen.

    For a long time I thought 2000-2001 would be my best shot at seeing it. When we lost to Michigan State in the Elite 8 I figured that's as close as I would ever see them get. Now with the caliber of players Fred is getting to at least consider us in their final 5, 10 schools, I'm starting to believe that we may get back to that point again in the next 5-10 years.

    Re: RECRUITING: Some possible visits for the fall

    The only problem with everyone coming for that UNI game is that it isn't a Hilton game. It will be at Wells Fargo and those recruits won't get a real taste of Hilton Magic. Wish they'd come for the Auburn game or something.

    I believe the references are to the UNI and Iowa football games...

    Bo transferred to ASU where he averaged .5 ppg on 4-17 from 3 for the year. Not exactly the 3 point sniper we wanted.

    I believe you are totally on the money. We use our football crowd to recruit our bball players.

    You do realize that they are coming to the UNI football game right? Not basketball. Same with Iowa.
