    I wouldn't be shocked if Lee still visited. But I'm not even sure if he's already said he's not visiting anywhere else or not.

    I'm confused as to why he would schedule a visit here so quickly in his announcement, talk about all the love he's getting from Indiana fans, tweet about Iowa State, then commit to Ohio State.

    $$$ maybe? or Aaron Craft decided to confess his love to Lee.

    Because he really liked OSU on his visit. Happens all the time.

    Re: Monday Musings: The future is bright for Cyclone basketball

    I think next year comes down to 2 things:

    1) Matt Thomas and/or SDW's development. If either of those guys can develop into consistent long range threats, the sky is the limit for this team. With what we know Georges and Monte can create, Hogue's development offensively and what we hear about McKay and Nader, those guys (as well as Naz) are going to have all kinds of open looks from three. If they can consistently hit threes, the sky is the limit.

    2) Adding depth at the guard spot. It's hard to count on lucking out and finding another Kane, but I would sure like to see us bring in another guard, ideally that could play right away. Next year, Monte is our only true PG (and that's based on not knowing quite what we are getting with Custer yet). Another guard would be fantastic.

    Count me in the group that thinks we are better next year. While it's crazy to think we can easily replace the production of Kane and Ejim, I really think it can be done.

    Re: Monday Musings: The future is bright for Cyclone basketball

    People/players can be replaced, but chemistry of those players is a special thing. I hope we can replace that chemistry with these newcomers in the program. At least the tranfers thus far got to be part of the program to be indoctrinated. In Fred we trust.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    Re: Monday Musings: The future is bright for Cyclone basketball

    This is a huge next 7 months.
    Add the right 5th year or juco transfers to the group we have returning and next year we could finish what was paused due to Niang's injury. Add a few of our top targets for the Class of 2015, and 2015-16 could be better yet.
    What a 4 years under Hoiberg, and it is great knowing that the next for should be even better.

    Very true! Chemistry is so important. Hopefully our young freshmen learned a thing or two from our senior leadership to help carry that chemistry forward for years to come! Guys (and leaders) like Naz, Georges and Monte will hopefully teach and mentor the guys coming in. Buckle up! It should be a fun ride Cyclone Nation!

    Re: Monday Musings: The future is bright for Cyclone basketball

    How many years will it take for cynics to recognize that Hoiberg puts together really good teams every year? When will he start getting credit for this in the pre-season voting?

    Re: Monday Musings: The future is bright for Cyclone basketball

    I'm pumped for next season already, almost to the point i could skip football season (i know that sounds like i'm the anti-******). Hoiberg has turned this into a basketball school in my mind..........ok CPR, FH has raised the bar, your turn.

    My guess is he had the OSU screws put to him on his visit. Commit immediately or move on.

    Re: Monday Musings: The future is bright for Cyclone basketball

    I remember feeling devastated after last year's tournament loss to Ohio State and losing all of those seniors. I thought we'd be decent this year but fell into the "rebuilding year" line of thought. I couldn't have been more pleased with how this season progressed (other than the WVU loss and the Niang injury). I'm so excited for next season and I feel more optimistic about the state of this program than I have in the 25 years that I've been a fan. The future is bright, indeed.


    "I watch the Cyclone players and they look like guys who grew up fighting for everything they got, on and off the court. In a word, men. I look at the Iowa players and I assume when they were kids they played soccer in leagues that didn't keep score to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. There is not one single leader on this team. It's a group of high school friends playing a pickup game at the YMCA and maybe they will keep score, maybe not, because they are just happy to be there."

    My guess as well. And I don't have any problems with that. The reason it happened is because we were in the tourney and they weren't. It is what it is.
