    Re: #21 Thomas

    Clearly, he has given up on basketball and is playing out the string while he's stuck with all this darn winning.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Just saying I DONT want him riding the bench, when he gets going I think he'll be a huge asset and the final deadly dagger in CFH tool belt.

    Every Cyclone MBB season needs its whipping boy. Win or lose - there must be someone to whip!

    Bubu is gone, Percy doesn't play. So, a few fans have served up Thomas for the whipping.

    It is just the stupidest trend that we have every year.
    Even this (so far) undefeated season needs one somehow. Sad.

    Say what you will, but ISU is 1-0 when fans post open letters to the team before a game on CF this basketball season.

    Matt is really good with the ball. I think we are underestimating his intangibles. 8.3 points to boot.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    People are talking extremes right now. Obviously everyone is glad he's not forcing, but he's also passing up shots he should be able to easily drain.

    8.3 ppg as a freshman is weaksauce. Probably need to add some spikes to that whip.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    Be careful, there is a lot of Thomas nuthuggers here. Everyone knows that Thomas is struggling with the elevated competition. I do think its all mental at this point and his lack of man to man experience rears its ugly head from time to time but there is one thing I do like about him. He doesn't turn the ball over hardly at all which is way worse than missing shots IMO.
    I think he will have his moments good and bad all year but he will be better for it next season. I do think Naz is a better player right now but as long...as Naz is happy filling the Tyrus role, then there is no sense changing anything.
    I will say if Vaughn comes next season, he better step up his game.

    How does one hug some nuts? I get fondling, holding and definitely understand kicking. But hugging is not one I can quite...grasp.


    Oh, I get grasping too.
