    Saw P'Allen today

    Saw P'Allen at Creighton today. He seemed to be enjoying himself.

    Re: Saw P'Allen today

    martdawg - thanks for the post. The rest of this is not directed at you...but the entire P'Allen situation.

    Cyclone fans, the fate of ISU basketball does not hang in the balance of P'Allen Stinnett. He is just one key to the puzzle. A very good key, but just one key none the less.

    If he chooses another school over ISU, it will be disappointing - a tough loss - but we'll move on. Fans who are saying "well Stinnett isn't that good in the first place" need to get their heads checked. He is good or G-Mac would not have gone after him after he recommitted for '06. Just as the fans thinking we're doomed if P'Allen goes elsewhere need to get their cat scanned.

    I think since this P'Allen saga began a long ago, there's been a brand new post about him on a weekly basis. And sometimes, like recently, almost daily.

    We want P'Allen and he could be a big part of ISU, that much we know. We don't need him, or any other player for that matter.

    Hopefully he commits to ISU and we can welcome him with open arms. If not, best of luck to him and we’ll go get the next guy.

    Get his autograph. Maybe he will make it big someday. That's not sarcastic, I am serious.

    Gosh, I hope this kid nor his parents read this forum! Great post ISUFan22! I agree 100%. No recruit is bigger than the entire program.

    Re: Saw P'Allen today

    do we really want someone who doesn't want to actually compete for a starting spot in the line up??? is he that great of a player that he doesn't think that he should have to compete for playing time??

    Someone please tell me where P'Allen or anyone close to him said "I/P'Allen does not want to compete for a starting spot."

    I'm waiting...

    Re: Saw P'Allen today

    I know we don't "need" him - and I know he's good....the only reason I'm interested in following the situation is because this seems to be the first recruit that Mac hasn't gotten that he's put this much time into.

    Re: Saw P'Allen today

    The fact that he has extended the process out this far without committing to ISU makes it clear to me that he really wants to play elsewhere. If he changes his mind and commits to ISU that would be fine with me, but if he really doesn't want to be here this is not the place for him

    Good luck to him no matter what he chooses (unless he happens to be playing against the clones some time in the future).

    I hope you told him you're a big Creighton fan and that you speak for all Creighton fans when you say that you don't ever want to see him on campus again.

    We also put a fair amount of time in on Kenton Walker. On the other hand we have pulled out big recruits like Brackins, Garrett and Staiger.

    I agree that P'Allen is one more piece to the puzzle and would love to have him. If not, I'm sure there are other pieces that can fit into the puzzle.

    Re: Saw P'Allen today

    ...or you can look at is as though he's making an informed decision and not jumping in bed with the first school who offers him. Check out how many of the top 150 have de-committed in the past few months.

    No need to slander the kid, because he and his family are taking their time with the process, correct?

    Again, do some research and determine how many kids have de-committed in recent years...

    Re: Saw P'Allen today

    This guy reminds me of Kris Humphries who went to Minnesota a few years ago. He played for one year at Minnesota and then went to the NBA. He seemed very self-centered during his recruiting. His time at Minnesota was pretty much the same. He was playing only for himself. MN may not of had much of team, but he was more concerned about his points that how the team was doing.

    Let's find a team player.
