    What...no report on Eikmeier after the 2/9 "gamewatch"?

    I was baffled to see no post about Eikmeier's game on 2/9 so I did a little research and found out why: He only scored 4 points on 1-6 shooting (he was 2-2 from the line).

    Apparently Wahoo Neumann ran a triangle and two targeting Eikmeier and Liekhus. Liekhus scored 11.

    Some other kid stepped up for Eikmeier's team and they did win the game pretty handily.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Wow, so he had a bad night. Big deal. Cyclone #1, you have been on an Eik witch hunt from the beginning. What gives? He is a shooter and is exactly what our team needs. No one on this existing team can be trusted to hit an open 3 (lucca doesn't count yet). Be happy he is our recruit.

    Eikmeier was not a factor and neither he nor the coach had a problem with it. He wasn't needed and he's unselfish. The other team didn't want him to score and their wish was granted. They still got stomped.

    You all know I have been skeptical about this kid while others have raved about how great he will be at ISU. If Wahoo Neumann (which I doubt is loaded with DI talent) can shut him down then how will he fare against major DI players and especially Big 12 opponents?

    Does Eik have teammates like Wesley Johnson and Craig Brackins? He isn't going to get double teamed at the D1 level. It's pretty simple.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I look at this completely different than you are. I am all the more impressed with Eikmeier after a game like this. Obviously his scoring wasn't needed for his team to win this game. Let's not forget basketball is a team game and the idea is for your team to win, not to see how many points a person can score. So he didn't assert himself and only took 6 shots. Big deal!! He was clearly un-selfish and a team player. I will be concerned if this happens in a game where they DO need him to score a bunch to win the game. This game means absolutely nothing!!

    I think we need to start bashing you for your research ability. That line was from his game Friday night (2/8), not 2/9.

    They gameplanned to keep Wes from scoring...the result was a 23 point loss. I don't think anyone believes Big XII teams will ever have the same approach to guarding him.

    Seriously, most people think he will be a good shooter in D-1. That's not too much of a stretch in most people's opinion.

    Obviously you feel Mac can't evaluate talent at all and has absolutely wasted a scholly on this kid. Time will tell, I guess.

    Is "Eik" playing against the likes of Chalmers, Rush, Roby, Walker, Abrams, Augustin, and Beasley? He won't need to be double teamed at the DI level. It's pretty simple.

    Good catch. You would hope the story on 2/10 would be from 2/9 but it is from 2/8. I guess they are still using typewriters at the Fremont Tribune!

    So, what happened on 2/9...the gamewatch game against Omaha Christian Academy played at Grace University?

    Re: What...no report on Eikmeier after the 2/9 "gamewatch"?

    ... so a team threw a junk defense at him and shut him down for one game ... if by shutting him down you mean that he took 6 shots, scored four points ... but then the team that threw the junk defense lost by 23 ... well, KU is more than welcome to throw a triangle and two at us if it means Iowa State wins by 23 ... why are we even having this discussion?


    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?

    deliberately going out of your way to bash recruits does not show any class whatsoever. I'm thoroughly disappointed in your behavior as a cyclone fan cyclone#1.
