    The next Mayor?

    Matt Thomas has been solid, but I was little taken back when the announcers last night began comparing him to Fred. I know they were mainly commenting on his build, but when they went on by saying his shot was so good 'you expect every one to go in.'

    Very early, but could Matt take his game high enough to be the next Mayor of Ames?

    He's not from Ames, so no. Also, there can be only one...

    Playing style, he sure seems like he could be. However, if you asked the crowd, it'd probably be Ellerman

    I agree that Matt is impressive. You almost forget he's a freshman at times. I put him in the category with Scotty and Tyrus when it comes to "expecting it to go in." That's pretty lofty company, because those two were pretty impressive shooters. And while Matt isn't on their level yet, it's not a matter of if he gets there, just a matter of when.

    Not to change the subject, but Monte is also damn impressive. I love how quick his hands are. He's already good, but he's going to be very, very good before he's done here.

    I don't think there will ever be another player from Ames who had the respect and fan support Fred did. There will certainly be players with similar games and players from Ames but there will only be one Mayor.

    There is no next Mayor, but Matt will be outstanding. He'll be good enough to stand on his own without a comparison that puts him in Fred's shadow.

    Agree Fred grew up in Hilton and nobody can be "The Mayor" but Fred.

    Matt is very, very good and had a similar game to Fred (haven't seen him dunk over a seven footer yet though), but Fred was a special player and you could tell it right away.

    Re: The next Mayor?

    Let's let Matt be Matt for now. He is six games into his college career.

    I get tired of folks pinning such big expectations on kids so early. Yes, some of it is the "what if" factor recruits/players give us and get us excited about, but then we get bummed out.

    I'm close to putting Naz in this echelon as well. That guy doesn't need much space and he's firing with confidence right now. 56% from 3 is ridiculous.
