    Re: Add 1 player to this years team

    Should be a poll...but I can see (and agree) that Embiid is really the only choice for OUR team. Wiggins would be good but we have shooters...we need the solid inside presence.

    Re: Add 1 player to this years team

    Embiid is huge obviously. But I am taking a SR Royce White with 3 years experience in Fred's offense over him. I really think Royce's unique combo of size, strength, quickness and athleticism would be enough on the defensive glass mixed with Ejim, Kane and Hogue's rebounding to overtake a team with the size Kansas has this year

    Re: Add 1 player to this years team

    Those of you not saying Embiid, and coming up with some shooter, because Embiid "wouldn't fit Freds style," are thinking way too hard. Fred is from the NBA way of thinking, and he's a brilliant coach. I'm pretty sure he can adjust to having a guy like Embiid on the roster.

    I am also pretty certain if you asked Fred this question tomorrow, he would say Embiid. The reason Iowa St plays the way they do, is because they don't have a guy like Embiid. Hopefully next year McKay can be a poor man's Embiid.

    Re: Add 1 player to this years team

    Got some Hok trolls on here that keep saying woodbury...he'd be the fastest 5 fouls the Big 12 has ever seen!

    On a more serious note, Marcus Fizer is the former Cyclone I would take. At 6'8'' 260 he isn't a whole lot taller than any of our current guys, but what a bruiser he was. He could have out-muscled guys like Embiid and Wiggins, really thrown them off their game. Someone said Royce over Fizer, but I disagree. Fizer was a better FT shooter, had decent-enough ball skills for a true 4, and could step out for a 3 when he needed to as well. Marcus Fizer gets my vote all the way.

    Some non-Cyclones I would add who currently play in no specific order: (intentionally leaving out Big 12 players)

    Aaric Murray-Texas Southern (formerly WVU)
    Tyler Haws-BYU
    Khem Birch-UNLV
    Shawn Long-Louisiana Lafayette
    Julius Randle-UK
    Noah Vonleh-Indiana

    Re: Add 1 player to this years team

    Either Doug McD or Jabari Parker from Duke. They fit Fred's style and play a crucial position of need for ISU. If I had a 3rd choice, Staskus from Michigan.

    We Need a Post Defender

    We don't need a stud player to make this team significantly better, we just need a guy like Embiid, Perry Ellis,etc who can guard his guy in the post one on one. We give up too many easy shots because we double down on ALL passes to the post.

    Pick a guy- Embiid, Ellis, Ridley, Lammert, Sprangler(sp), Woodbury, , etc.

    Lost all cred with woodbury. When people put this you realize Niang ability to score at will against him is why we beat Iowa. He is horrible. We are way better off with the posts we have.

    Y'all are crazy. It is Emiid and it isn't even close.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”
