    I think McKay will probably be guarding him on the defensive side.

    I don't see a lot of scenarios where Alexander is asked to cover Niang.

    Ellis-Niang? Or is Mickelson going to play a lot?

I've heard some really glowing reports on him, but for now I'm just keeping a "I'll believe it when I see it" mindset. If he can, as a 17 year old, give KU 10-15 minutes a game of B12-average wing play, I'd be pretty happy with that.
    I don't know what the ceiling is for either of these guys, but based on highlights (I know, I know), the kid from Ukraine is ready to play from day one. GT won't playing any meaningful minutes this year at all.

    Mykhailiuk looks very polished, and has a nasty fadeaway jumper for a (then) 16-year old. I mean, how many 16 year olds can even hit a fadeaway on a consistent basis? With the talent in the frontcourt that KU will put on the floor this year, when this kid is in the game, he's going to see a lot of open looks.

    He might be a Drazen Petrovic type player. Doesn't get a ton of chances to show his talent early on, but once he peaks, look out.

    Pretty level-headed post from him. I think you've let him get in your head. It would be better to just ignore him if he bothers you so much.

    I don't get the vitriol for TwoCoach. I might have missed his inflammatory posts, but everything I've read of him has been pretty reasonable.

    I know I'm not on here more than once or twice a day, but he seems to make good contributions from what I've seen. In contrast, it seems like there are a few immature Cyclone fans that would rather try to bait him into a ******* match rather than actually address his points.

    Good posts made by TwoCoach and KUCyclone in this thread, IMO.

    The inflammatory ones never happened. Just junior high breaking out around here (someone else's term, but really accurate).

    Twocoach will make a fairly reasonable post, maybe sometimes relating it to the team he most follows as an example of what he's talking about, then Cyclones will jump on him and attack him and call him things, then he's forced to defend himself, then things get even worse. It's all petty ******** and if people on CF weren't such dbags, most of his posts will have somewhat of a relevance about what's being talked about. Cyclones are usually the first to troll and derail the thread by calling him a troll and accusing him of derailing a thread. It's really pathetic if you think about it, and it's sad because mob mentality generally takes place instead of common sense.

    Twocoach is a fine poster. There are just a bunch of people on here that get defensive if you say anything positive about another school other than ISU

    I would say the vast majority of people that respond to my posts are intelligent, reasonable adults that respond well to an outside point of view. The group of folks that lose their mind about me is small and consistent. It's pretty much the same handful of people each time. Every group of virtually any size will have a few of these so it's to be expected.

    -Insisting bad calls didn't hurt ISU in Ames two years ago when the national media made a story out of it for a week and the B12 apologized for the blown calls.

    -Thread going right now where he's saying Duke and UCLA aren't blue bloods but KU is.

    -Multiple threads talking trash about Niang with Niang's mom.

    -Bringing up completely unrelated KU recruiting topics in ISU recruiting threads (not talking about the kids we're both going after).

    -Making fun of Hoiberg's kids crying. (100% lock Iowa trolls would never get away with that on the main basketball board)

    Could go on.

    It seems to me that every day there are at least 5 people complaining about Tuco.

    However, I for one, am tired of the posters complaining about the people that complain about Tuco, because there are just as many.
