    Question about the Cap City League

    I assume some of our new guys like Taylor, McIntosh, Dunson, and some of the vets like Clark, Marsden, and Hubalek will be playing in Des Moines this summer. I'd heard of the league before, but I was wondering if people can go see the games sometimes. I don't really know much about the structure of it or even where the games are played.

    I'd like to find this out because I think it'd be cool to see the new guards in action against some good competition. I know the league doesn't get started until like mid-June or July, but that will probably feel sooner than later.

    Re: Question about the Cap City League

    I went to about 90% of these games last year. Basically it was to see if Theo Davis was FINALLY going to play. It seemed like every week someone would leak out that he was going to be there. In fact, he was there once but didn't play. Anyway, to answer your question. Yes you can attend these games. A lot of people do. It's normally a Drake love fest and the games get boring at times, but...well there is no 'but'. It's just plan boring. However, b/c I love basketball so much I will probably be there again this summer.

    Our little kids soccer league has a website. Does Cap City have a website? They might have a schedule on the website.

    Actually, Theo was there once and did play. It was kind of interesting last year, because the Drake guys dominated pretty much every every game, and Rahshon would just kind of go through the motions, so that if you didn't know better, you would have thought that Drake was going to kill ISU during the season. I thought from watching the summer league games, WM told his guys that avoiding injuries was priority number 1.

    I agree completely. There was some new guy from Drake named Huston(?) who played on the same team as Taggart. Watching him play, you would have thought he was going to be all-world. I don't think I heard at all about him during the regular season. Overall, it was very guard dominated. If I were a big guy, I'm not sure I would even want to play in this league because the only way you're going to get to shoot is by a put-back.

    Re: Question about the Cap City League

    Last year all of the games were played at the Valley Southwoods gym in West Des Moines. And it started around the 15th of June, so expect it to start around the same time this year. Last year it could get pretty boring but I did think it was funny when the ref of a game between Anthony Davis' team and Clark's team tried to eject one of them because they kept on talking to each other. Then when one of the coachs went up to the ref he was tossed also. It ended up that no one had to leave the game but really funny that the ref was taking the game so seriously.

    Re: Question about the Cap City League

    I went to one of the games to see Taggart. I sat right behind his bench and listened to the coach. Tool. His entire strategy was "get the ball to Taggart." I don't know how many times I heard him say, "Come on guys, let's play our game, get the ball to Taggart" or "I want the ball in Taggart's hand."

    question,

    did Taggert even offer a whisp of personality or conciousness? his resemblance to tall prarie grass during last season was striking...swaying with the wind...no flinted spark of thought...just the rattle of his bones in the wind not unlike my grandmother's prized windchimes.

    Did he move his feet in the summer league as well as he did in the ISU games? Did he make an attempt to jump?

    Re: Question about the Cap City League

    Actually Taggart showed very good athleticism in the summer league and dominated the league, averaging well over 20 ppg and 10 rpg. He put on some very impressive dunking exhibitions before/between games and took it to the rim strong. I distinctly remember him taking it to the rim against another big guy, absorbing contact and still dunking with both hands. For whatever reason, I never saw the same level of athleticism and aggresiveness during the season. It leads me to believe that his illness and injury took a lot out of him. As far as the defensive attitude, it was not good, but no one plays tough d on a consistent basis in that league, Rahshon Clark included.
