    Wes situation mentioned in Fran Fraschilla's ESPN Insider blog today

    It's Insider content, which I normally never post due to the "don't post pay-for-info info on free sites" rule (which is a rule that should be respected). However, (forgive me Internet Gods) I feel that this is a glimmer of hope that people outside of our Cyclone community may be getting wind of something "fishy" surrounding this story.

    ESPN.com - Blogs - NCB EXPERTS

    News and notes from the Big 12 spring meetings


    The transfer of 6-7 forward Wesley Johnson from Iowa State is a devastating blow to the Cyclones. I was on the Johnson bandwagon early in his career at Iowa State after an unheralded high school career. After an outstanding freshman season, Johnson suffered through an injury-plagued sophomore season but still averaged 12.4 points a game.

    The word among some coaches was that Johnson will end up at an SEC school that had been working behind the scenes the last couple of months through a former Cyclone teammate. If it's true, it stinks!

    Former teammate make it sound like Bergstrom might have been in the mix...

    Were Wes and Taggert ever there together? SEC just made me think Memphis.

    I hate to point this out, but Memphis is not in the SEC. It's in Conference USA. Oops, looks like mwitt beat me to it...
