    Van Coleman on State of the Nation show

    Was interesting to hear what Van Coleman (Iowa's Mel Kiper of college hoop recruiting) had to say about ISU's '08 recruits in an interview with Steve Deace.

    Clinton Mann - was most impressed with him than any of the recruits. Said he is a double double waiting to happen. Is 6-7 225 and plays very hard - hates to lose. Sees good minutes from him right away.

    Dom Buckley - Said he will be a lot like Garrett in adjusting as a frosh PG, only expecting 8-10 min a game.

    Wes Eikmeier - Compared him to Jacobson, former UNI standout. Said he will need a year or two to develop physically before really contributing.

    Justin Hamilton - Briefly mentioned him, saying he will work into the rotation down the road as others depart (Alex Thompson)

    Others: Said our chances of landing Vanderbeken and Butler are 60/40 in our favor. Showed a graphic of Butler that listed him as a 6-4 shooting guard. I had read elsewhere that he was 6-6, so not sure what to believe.

    Was very high on Lucca. Sees the offense running through him and his ability to shoot it, dribble drive it, or find people.

    Thinks Garrett will have to become a 25-30 min/game player and that the days of he and Peterson being on the floor together should be behind us.

    Overall, he thought Texas and Oky were the teams to beat next year, and said Missouri and ISU are teams that could creep up from the bottom half to the top half, a la Baylor this year.

    I saw that too last night, he also said that Mac is looking at some Juco point guards. He said that Butler is really good, if he stays another year in Juco (3 years left) he would be a guy that the UCONN's of the world will be after - the guy has some talent. He also said that Vanderbeken was great the last month or two of the season averaging a double - double. I guess they are both on spring break and are talking about where they are going to go with their parents this week. Hopefully its to Ames, IA!!!

    He also said we may take Reese which from everything I've heard/read is not an option. Some of his info. completely contradicts what we already know or what we think we know.

    He mentioned that the one player that we REALLY wanted and missed on was a guy who went to Maryland. He never mentioned Appleton. I found that strange.

    Van Coleman doesn't know much. He said a month or two ago that he hadn't seen Mann play, and now he is raving about him. I also guarantee you that he has not seen Hamilton play and would be surrprised if he has seen Ike play as welll.

    Van knows alot about some players and very little about others. Problem is he doesn't distinguish which is which.

    Re: Van Coleman on State of the Nation show

    Van knows absolutely nothing about ISU basketball. I have drawn this conclusion after listening to him on the Miller show for the past couple years. He rarely is right about anything Cyclone related.

    Re: Van Coleman on State of the Nation show

    Seems like most of these experts don't know nearly as much as people attribute to them on the basis of their bineg "experts" and "insiders."


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

    In the case of ISU recruiting...it works better if other schools/people know little to nothing about who we are recruiting.

    Well according to Van, he has helped them get some players in the past! Didn't he take credit for Iowa finding out about Peterson?
