    I'm shocked that us and Oregon were among the first to reach out to him. Just shocked.

    Absolutely agree. He's batting 1.000 so far. My only thought is that if we do happen to get him, I think that's a ton of seniors to replace isn't it? I'm not good at remembering who we have coming in and what classes look like. But by then we could be a national power and it's a moot point. ;)

It looks to me like Behanan's had a pretty solid impact on a very good team and Fred has a pretty good history of having players behave themselves when on campus.

    Pitino kicked him off the team.

    I would guess we reach out to most transfers and then begin the vetting process to see if they are too big of risks to take on. But, it doesn't hurt to see if there is interest and then dig deeper to see if it is worth it.

    There is no doubt there is talent there and I trust Fred to make the right decisions for the program.

The dude can play, he just needs to stay outta trouble.

    Whatever helps us win games. Guys like this often learn their lesson when things like this happen and realize it's their last opportunity to accomplish their goals. That is why it often works out for them at ISU.

    I believe Luke Hancock was Final Four MOP but Behanan is still a very good player. He's an elite offensive rebounder and very good defender.

    His most similar players list based on his 2012-13 season include: Victor Oladipo '12, Melvin Ejim '12, Terrance Jones '12 and Marcus Morris '10, for anyone wondering what kind of player he is.

    I just don't think you worry about that the same way you did 10 years ago. You ensure your team is loaded and ready for the current season and stockpile one or two transfers for the next season. You just don't concern yourself with a season 3 years out.

    Royce had issues. Allen had issues. Lucious had issues.

    I think Fred knows what he's doing.

    Re: Iowa State reached out to Behanan

    If he sits out next year, the team would be ok with Hogue, Nadar, Niang, McKay and then he can come in the following year to replace Hogue. I'm ok with that strategy.

    Don't rebuild, just reload!!!
