    Great article on Morris w/quotes from Trey Burke and Izzo

    Let's hope Izzo doesn't try and steel Morris from us next season. Great article on Morris. I'm excited to see what he can do this year. Sounds like he (and the rest of the team) have been working really hard. I wonder if he has another breakout year if he stays to test the waters? I thought I read somewhere during his recruitment that he only wanted to stay in college 2 years.

    Izzo saying he skipped on Man Man for Parker will probably fire him up a bit.

    Good article, but it seemed to end rather abruptly. I was expecting more closing analysis.
    Should be a great year for Monte and the team.

    Or a thread that call people haters for not thinking he's ready for the NBA.....seriously though, thanks for sharing. I wasn't totally sold on Monte right away last year but he made huge strides. I'm comfortable with Morris against any PG in the country. If last years incoming national FR class hadn't been so loaded, Morris would've gotten a lot more national pub.

    not to take anything away from Freddie and Co but ISU was very fortunate that a couple key events happened to get Morris out of his home state.

    for michigan, yes. but parker and man man play different positions so the comparison seemed odd unless MSU was limited on rides.

    Re: Great article on Morris w/quotes from Trey Burke and Izzo

    Forgot we have Monte Morris as our PG for about the past three weeks. Lol we are frighteningly talented not even including the "unknowns" like Nader and Mckay.


    Rhoads out!

    Re: Great article on Morris w/quotes from Trey Burke and Izzo

    I like Izzo's reference to sometimes holding out for one and two, and three and four can turn out just as well. He also benefited in that scenario by landing Marvin Clark. While we held out hoping to get "you know who", we lost out on a darn good recruit that fell into Izzo's lap late. But's that the nature of the recruiting game as they say.

    Not a Hawkeye fan but Monte reminds me most of BJ Armstrong while he was playing for Iowa..

    He's made vast improvement, became much more comfortable on the floor, and had great mentors with Ejim, Kane, etc

    Re: Great article on Morris w/quotes from Trey Burke and Izzo

    I am curious to see if MM can take the next step even though he will not have Kane as a backcourt mate. Morris should be individually improved next year, but we may not see an increase in game performance with a cursory look.

    Kane-Morris, Blalock-Stinson, JT-Nurse-Horton...in the college game having multiple pg/lead guards can really give you an advantage. I guess we have Custer, but physically that is a vulnerable backcourt.

    I think you are forgetting someone.
