    You're really working hard to be upset about those posts. Probably too hard.


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

    If we did a Midnight madness, all that would happen would be the students wouldn't show up, the old people wouldn't stand and would leave with two minutes left, the Clone Cones would be smaller than usual and they wouldn't turn the lights down during introductions. Did I miss anything?

    Thank you for highlighting why a huge, arena filling event in mid-October to celebrate the kick off of practice is such a huge recruiting opportunity. Two Class of '15 Top 10 recruits have already booked their visits to Kansas for Late Night (Bragg, Zimmerman) and I'll bet a few more do as well. Recruits don't care about weather. Recruits don't care about football. They care about coaches, systems, facilities, playing time, distance to home and likely teammates. I have never in my life heard a guy say he chose to go to play basketball at a school because of the great turnout at a football game or the weather.

    "But still....you are so threatend by him that you feel the need to tell him how to be better." Just read this post over and over and picture me shaking my head at my desk as you read it. I am "so threatened by Hoiberg" that I am trying to call ISU fans to action to help improve their program. That would officially be the DUMBEST thing that a person genuinely threatened by someone could possibly do. "Hi, mugger. You're really huge and scary and look like you want to kill me. Here, take this big stick so that it is easier to accomplish!" Brilliant. I think you are letting your assumptions about me and KU fans in general cloud your ability for rational thought. Do you think that a Late Night event would benefit ISU basketball or not? If yes, then take action as a fan and see if you can get it to happen. If it doesn't, no harm done. You're out a few hours of your time. There really isn't a ton that we, as fans, can do to truly help our team other than show up and shell out ridiculous sums of money to support our teams. This is something that CAN be done.

    no question about it, it works very, very well for kansas and kentucky. We tried it at Iowa State before and it was a huge dud. Does ku do their with women program at same time? that was part of the problem, IMO when we did it. they tried to do women at same event and the flow was just terrible.

    Yes, they have a bunch of different sports that are involved. Numerous sports come out of the floor for intros and both the men and the women do skits and practices.

    What, you don't bust on CycloneErik for heavy posting? In 79 months he has had 55,077 posts. That's an average of 697 posts a month every month for 6+ years. My average is only at 335 a month in my 7 months here. I feel like I am dogging it a bit. I kid, I kid...

    Re: Cheick Diallo

    It used to work here, but I think it was Tim Floyd who did away with it because it counts against your sanctioned practices and he wanted to use it for actual practice and not a dunk show/party for the upcoming year. We've just left it that since.

    Re: Cheick Diallo

    Not sure how many schools do it, but I am guessing it also has something to do with ESPN. ESPN probably tells KU, UK and one of the Carolina schools to do it and they will rotate the TV coverage around to them. Great ploy for getting kids some national TV coverage and have some fun.

    I would guess that if ESPN came to Iowa St about doing it, we would be having 3 point contests all night. Probably not too many dunk contests, since only a few players would be able to participate

    Re: Cheick Diallo

    The last few pages of this thread hurts my eye balls. A lot of arguing for no reason. This has turned into the typical anti-twocoach thread which is odd. I, for one, like to hear twocoach's opinion on things. I know twocoach has posted because there will be 2 pages of people attacking what twocoach has said. Enough, this kind of behavior just isn't the ISU way. I thought we were a down to earth fan base that was nice and accepting of others? When did we become like Hawkeye fans?

    I understand your point. It would be silly for a basketball recruit to cite a football game as one reason he chose a school for basketball, but it certainly can have an impact, especially at ISU where the football team isn't good. It showcases the love the fans have for ISU athletics, and it is an impressive environment to be in. The sales pitch would go something like, 'hey Cheick, we're always talking about the how ISU has the best fans in the country and how much support you'll receive in Ames. You can see how crazy they are for a team that isn't expected to win a single Big XII football game. Imagine the support you'll get on a Final 4 contending team. Imagine this same atmosphere cheering for you in Kansas City for the Big XII tourney, etc, etc, etc...' That's type of stuff is the value of bringing b-ball recruit to a football game.

    With the new rule changes, teams get 42 days (used to only be 4 weeks) before the start of the season to get in their 30 practices. There's plenty of practice time to be had and more recovery time in between practices so coaches can push to get more done during their practice time. No need to sweat what works out to be about 20-30 minutes of practicing/scrimmaging. The rest of the event is just goofing off and doesn't count as practice time.

    Then two weeks later he goes to Late Night at Kansas and a week after that to Big Blue Madness at Kentucky and doesn't have to imagine anything; he would be seeing it and experiencing it. I am not saying an ISu football game provides NO value, it just doesn't have the bang of a Late Night event. Yes, going to a full football game is better than nothing but I don't think anyone would legitimately say that it would be better than going to a packed house full of crazy ISU fans in Hilton getting loud watching their team carry on and do a little scrimmaging. Kelly Oubre barely make it home from his Late Night visit before he committed to Kansas. He called and cancelled his visit to Kentucky and committed a few days later. Alexander was also at Late Night and decided to commit then but didn't announce until his birthday a month later. These events are HUGE for recruiting and ISU could easily put on an impressive showing with their great fan base as revved up for ISU basketball as they are.
