    My opportunity to Fan-girl just a bit.

    I stopped into the office to visit and Melvin showed up. He was Gracious and took a picture with Zoe!

    She's only two hands long!

    2-3 years ago, some fanatics would have questioned you letting him hold your baby with his unreliable hands!

    He really is a top notch individual. Honestly, I hope that he has the stats get him to first team big 12 and I really hope he gets academic all american...he deserves and and I think he has quietly been one of the best all time on the court and off.

    That's awesome.

    He is one of the nicest, articulate and considerate Cyclones ever. I have really enjoyed talking with him the couple ocassions I've had. He's a great Cyclone. Great photo for the records!

    Someone in the office joked about it.

    I agree with this. What a great ambassador for the team and the University.

    I wonder if Melvin would take a picture while holding me?

    After watching him try to catch I'm not sure I'd give him my baby.

    Doesn't he have younger siblings? I am pretty sure he knows to be careful.

    Nooooooow. This could be another thread. But does Mel get his jersey retired?

    It would be another thread, but I think he has to be in the NBA first. There might be requirements posted somewhere...

    Yeah, not sure if there is a set of requirements out there (obviously they always look at statistics), but he really has been about all you can ask for in a student athlete. He will graduate with honors, is involved in the Student Advisory committee, never in trouble, AND has been a statistical leader in the big 12.

    Kind of along the same lines, I think another question is: would you take a 4 year Melvin type over a 1-2 year Royce type?
