    RV out SDW in

    Now that the RV soap opera is out of the way and he is not coming to Ames. I think that gives SDW a chance to really get some playing time and show cyclONE nation what his game is really about. From the videos I have seen of him and his record breaking performance at the CCL "I know it is a glorified pickup game" he has the potential to be one of the more dynamic scoring guards on the team for the next 3 years. Glad to have you as a Cyclone Mr. Walker!

    Im with this guy! I'm really look forward to watching this kid improve. He can score anywhere on the court and has great athleticism.

    I really do hope he's ready to ball out next year. He's definitely putting in the work to get there. He has the skill set to be our best offensive weapon.

    Re: RV out SDW in

    Not extremely comforting, but I at least Fred can spend a lot more time developing SDW knowing he's going to get a good amount of playing time next season.

    Re: RV out SDW in

    I'm not completely sold on SDW yet, but I think he's got a world of potential. With Morris and Thomas starting and SDW and Long as backups, I think that will be a heck of a back court that we'll have. All of those guys with a full year of experience (I don't count Long's limited time his freshman year as true experience) should make these guys very dangerous. Very excited about the future!

    He will be a force for ISU next season. Big 12 first team type stuff. You read it here first.

    Re: RV out SDW in

    Holy god.....what are you guys watching?

    said it before and I'll stand by it.....we will never be in a position recruiting wise where this kid starts. He HAD and has had opportunities.....he had every opportunity to play minutes at WVU and he stunk.

    Unless we land a whale recruit....Thomas will start for 4 years....and I'm ok with that.

    Re: RV out SDW in

    I remember alot of people saying Ejim would not start or see alot of minutes when the transfers of Royce and company came to town and how did that turn out? I have been wrong about stuff on here before and will be again but I don't think that is this time. Recruiting wise SDW was a hell of a pick up if I remember correctly. He will be fine and surprise alot of people wrong.

    Rooting for the kid, too, but Big12 first team type stuff? Wow, that's quite a jump. Or are you just being sarcastic to get us to reply? Don't get me wrong, I hope SDW improves and takes a step forward next year, but it appears to me he doesn't look in any kind of rhythm with his shot and just seems overmatched on defense. But I'm hoping for good things for the guy.

    Re: RV out SDW in

    Between him, Naz, Morris, Thomas, and Custer we will have a very solid backcourt through 16-17 at least.

    Assuming they all continue to develop well (aka anti-Percy), that's 5 solid guys for the 1-2 spot.

    I see Morris being similar to Staten in a few years. Plays with a ton of heart and already is on the floor the majority of games.

    I will say if a player that sees VERY limited minutes this year becomes a first teamer, we are in for a hell of a season considering he will be the 6-7th option at best.

    Well that's my point...he had a full year to train, eat, lift, shoot, learn the game more than Morris and Thomas.....and he is light years away from those two already. So not sure what drastic change folks think will take place to change that dynamic.

    I agree with you. I like SDW and glad he is on the team, but I see him as the 5th best in that group. And as you said, I am fine with that. Any production we get from him is gravy IMO.

    Im not sold on him being a contributor, but I do think the potential is there. I'd be extremely happy if his Jr and Sr year, he's playing 15 a game and scoring 6-7 pts.

    1. It's hard to judge a player by 5 minutes of garbage time when we are getting our *** kicked and no one is playing well. SDW did not stink in that time so i dont know what you were watching. (In my opinion SDW, Monte, and Thomas were the only ones that seemed to give a damn the last minutes of the game)
    2. SDW has played in a few blowout non con games this year and did very well
    3. SDW has yet to have a REAL opportunity. A real opportunity is getting a first start, or playing 20+ minutes in a game thats actually competitive
    4. SDW redshirted last year to gain some size and muscle and he did just that.
    5. This is his first year back. You cant make judgements on a TOP 125 player because you saw him play once all year
