    Basketball (W): "Mic'd Up" With Bill Fennelly

    Cyclone TV "inside" at practice. Interesting and worth a look.

    great video... it really shows how good of a coach BF is and how much he cares about his players. It made me want the season to start tomorrow. Go Cyclones.

    Might have something to do with the Italy trip, think they get practices for that?

    Those 10 extra practices and several games that we will play in Italy will help the Fab Five get with the Cyclone program. It should be a big help for the upcoming season. I hope we at least get box scores from those games in Italy.

    The timing is ideal with five freshman coming in, particularly considering they are pretty highly regarded and some will be needed in the lineup right away. Excellent chance for the freshman bigs and Jensen to see some court time. Cyclone.com had a story earlier that Baier was cleared to practice, does that mean she is okay to actually play in those Europe games?

    The video captures the intensity that is is likely common to all successful programs. Brynn will be a great Senior representative along with Nikki. Practice, practice, practice! Then does it get any better than Italy, before you ever have class at ISU, for the five frosh?

    Unless your name is Ashley Arlen and you don't like flying.

    Some of best ISU BF players never got this kind of trip.

    We all know that Coach Fen is intense. I particularly liked the sign he mentioned - good players want to be coached hard...average players are hard to coach (paraphrasing). That says it all.

    That was one catchy phrase. And, is it ironic or coincidental for Rosie Gambino to miss out on a trip to Italy?

    Is it possible to coach hard without calling your players every vulgar name they can think of? Or to yell in their face until they start to cry?

    I hope he has stopped those low class methods. Having a friend of a current player commit seems to indicate that he has. Maybe the locker room is supervised, or a new medication perhaps?

    Any player wants to be treated with more respect than a stray dog that has destroyed a garden. Even the dog would have some protection by the laws

    EHdakota,
    Is it possible for you to post anything positive about Iowa State Women's basketball and Coach Fennelly? I am not sure why you keep returning when you are obviously not a true fan of either!

    +1
    If BF has been that abusive, in this social media era, there would have been huge uproar.
    If he has been that abusive, we won't see Chelsea Poppens, Brittany Wilkins returning to Ames and seeing BF.
