Finally, some signs of life from Austin Alburtis:

"Bryce and Tuba were good people as a well as good players," Pelton said. "What we have to do is simplify some things and develop the toughness that is needed in the Big 12. Consistency is what (Iowa State head) coach (Gene) Chizik has been preaching. I have seen some good things from Austin Alburtis who has been a scout team guy for two years. I've been pleased with the effort and I think we are on course." (cyclones.com)
I really liked his video when he signed, but he was coming off knee surgery. Nice to see that he might well contribute finally.
