    High Praise for Kane

    I know Bleacher Report can be quite a joke and doesn't always represent the most reliable source, but they listed Deandre VERY HIGH on their BCS Conference Player Rankings so I thought I would share. However (having fun with wishful thinking of course), if his play represents anything close to that ranking... It'll be one heck of a year. For once I hope BR gets something right. Haha.

    Ejim and Niang are also both ranked on the list.

    Kane: #7
    Ejim: #71
    Niang: #112

    P.S. FWIW the report also lists Marble, White, and Gesell for Iowa. Just not as high as our guys :)

    Keep in mind these aren't necessarily the best players in order but his fantasy picks....meaning they will fill the stat sheet.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    Holy smokes 6 months ago I never heard of Kane. Then I wondered if he was good enough to start. Now we have a writer giving his top 200 players and Kane is listed as #7. This guy thinks Kane is better than Ejim? Things are getting pretty interesting around here!

    Yeah I wouldn't take much confidence in the report. Like psycln11 said, it's based on 'fantasy' value. But, I still found it pretty interesting that anyone would predict Deandre anywhere that high. Can't be a bad thing. Here's hoping to a great year.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's better than Ejim. I would be surprised if he's the 7th best player from a major conference and the 3rd best player in the Big 12. In saying that I hope they are right. While I'd be surprised if he's that good I do think it is a possibility.

    He looked good in that first game. The guy works all the time.

    I have to admit, a player passes up Iowa State and goes and plays for Roy Williams, he gets on my, (I don't give a **** about him list.) So I don't even know how that guy plays. And I don't really care. That is just me.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    It's fantasy basketball. That's why DeAndre is so high. He has triple double potential. It's also why Gary Harris is so low.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    Will be interesting to see Kane over a longer period of time vs. big time competition before I go nutty on him. Like what I've seen so far, but I would think we'll be needing him to show some improved outside shooting ability. Not sure that's going to be a part of his game.

    Re: High Praise for Kane

    Kind if makes sense if it's for fantasy basketball. Jabari Parker at 11 is kind of a joke. I think he might be better than wiggins this year. It's crazy to think that wiggins should be going into his senior year in highschool
