    Wisconsin

    How does Wisconsin ALWAYS have a big physical white boy down low? How can we not get corn fed boys like that at Iowa State? I miss Jared Homan.........


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

    I agree. Even though Butch is slow, he still takes up a lot of space and can put the ball in the bucket if he gets it close enough to the basket.

    Re: Wisconsin

    Exactly. It doesn't have to be a guy that can be a huge scoring threat. Just take up space, play physical, and keep guys like Bill Walker and Beasley at bay. A name I haven't heard in a while got brought up the other night with my roommates... remember Damion Staple? He did everything we lacked this year.

    Re: Wisconsin

    Damion wasn't thick like Homan was, but he was a pretty decent defender. Not a big offensive threat, like you said, but someone that can get opposing players out of the lane and make them work for their baskets. If I remember right, he was decent at shot blocking.

    Re: Wisconsin

    Wow, that hit from Butch was ridiculous. This game just got really mean...


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    It's not even that they have ONE guy, they have TONS of guys. They have a whopping EIGHT guys 6'7" or taller, and all but one of those guys weigh at least 220 lbs.

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Re: Wisconsin

    Maybe we should hire Bo Ryan away to recruit post guys for us.

    BTW, if they like cheese, and we have folks that like to complain, would that make us a "whine-and-cheese crowd."


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
