    Interesting story concerning Mike T etc.

    Good article in the StL Post Dispatch concerning Stephon Hannah, Mike Taylor, Chipola JC and unsavory characters involved. Read it here. STLtoday - Sports - Mizzou

    Re: Interesting story concerning Mike T etc.

    Best quote from the article: There's a saying in college hoops about why junior college players are available late in the recruiting season. They're either good kids who can't play or bad kids who can.

    Most startling fact: 7 players from Taylor and Hannah's JC got scholarships. 4 lasted one year or less at the school. I kinda hope we don't recruit from Chipola anymore...


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    I'd love to get the next Mario Boggan or DeAndre Thomas from there next year, but that is a disturbing trend.

    In Coach Mac's defense and even Anderson's, it was late in the recruiting period. They took a risk and somewhat lost out. I say somewhat because Mike T did deliver us one great season. However, long term, it hurts the team because there is no consistency established. Switching coaches sucks. And as late as we changed, it really cost the ISU program about a year or two of any level of competitiveness.

    I'm glad we got an asst coach from Chipola since their players are such model citizens.
