    Just a thought...

    Iowa St has two of the favorites for CPOY candidate, we lost out on "the" recruit and the majority of Cyclone followers believe next year's team will still be better than this year's. Great time to be a Clone!

    Is that just a thought?


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

    Re: Just a thought...

    To be better, wouldn't we need to pull in at least one (or two) players for our last 2 scholarships that can contribute immediately since McKay is not available til 2nd semester? Just wondering, that's all. Without him makes our non-conf. resume more challenging. Big12 will be loaded again with all the young talent returning.

    Re: Just a thought...

    This program has a lot of things going for it but I'm not sure next years team will be better. Ejim and Kane are special players, leaders, and teammates. Losing guys like that can effect a lot. In saying that next years team certainly has potential to do just about anything, but it will require another great coaching job from Fred, a lot of hard work from the guys, and probably a little bit of luck.

    Re: Just a thought...

    We are one really good guard who can shoot well from being better next year than this year. Perhaps Matt Thomas turns out to be that guard, we will see.

    I don't know who thinks next years team will be better? It will be hard to replace Ejim and Kane. They be as goo do if guys like Morris, Long, and Thomas improve and Olof McKay and Nader can step in and produce but it is not often you can lose two first team all big 12 caliber performers and get better.

    Re: Just a thought...

    Since Fred's second year the same thing had been said about the team.

    Welp we lost an NBA first rounder and 2 senior starters, looks like the team will take a step back.

    Oh no we lost an All B12 defensive player, a potential NBA player, and 70% of our scoring it might be a down year.

    Re: Just a thought...

    I don't know if they will be better, but certainly different, especially after McKay can play. GN might be a monster offensive player with a shot blocker in the post. Right now he has to expend a lot of effort guarding guys that are way bigger than him. He also has to defend post players that get the ball very soft because of foul problems. Really the biggest things that I see are where does the outside shooting come from and then the toughness of the team. Kane and ME are mentally a combo as we have seen for quite a while.

    Maybe from people who didn't know the team but after the Royce year people thought that the next year they would be equally as good if not better and this year when Kane came aboard people thought they would as least be 3rd or 4th in the league. With the potential to be 2nd.

    That is Hoiball. It's always moving forward and getting better... Hoiball doesn't have time to take a step backwards.
