    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."
    -- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

    I think the most fun Iowa State team to watch were the 95-96 and 96-97 teams. Anyone who didn't get the chance to witness Dedric drain a three or see Cato block a shot like it was a volleyball serve missed out on a lot of entertaining basketball.

    Since they've been covered already, I'll throw out Stevie Johnson and Michael Nurse instead. Stevie was one of the few brights spots in those shaky years during the Floyd to Eustachy transition, and Michael Nurse was just solid as a rock during the 99-00 season...it seemed like he was always good for between 12-15 points each game, rarely more or less.

    Nothing shows off the value of these guys' contribution better than our absolute dismantling of UCLA in the 2000 tournament. Great, great team basketball.
