    re: i've got a question

    I would probably take him back but he wouldn't be my favorite Cyclone any more.

    re: i've got a question

    I would welcome him back, but I think he would be booed more than the opposing team at Hilton for what he made the fanbase go through.

    re: i've got a question

    I have this friend, who used to play b-ball at a school... but he packed up and left. Now he thinks that it might be a bad decision. Do you think that maybe he could come back?

    re: i've got a question

    At this point in time with rumors flying, its best for both parties to go their separate ways. Its just too late in the process and too ugly for that to happen.

    Re: i've got a question

    I would think that those bridges have been burned. I tend to believe that things happened like this:

    1. Wes has a rough season. He's injured. He spends some time unhappy. He talks to friends, previous coaches, family, etc and tells them this. He is blowing off steam and maybe not real serious about it. One of the people he talks to decides (either for Wes's geniune best interests or for the money) to start looking at schools for Wes.

    2. Wes talks with McDermott. He isn't really all that worked up about things, but these conversations are what he is talking about in interviews now.

    3. Wes thinks to himself that he is probably coming back. But maybe not real happy about it. He makes the committment to come back.

    4. Either Wes changes his mind or someone changes it for him. And he bolts.

    I think that both Wes and McDermott could legitamidly feel they are in the right on this.

    Re: i've got a question

    I have a feeling that WJ will be one of the many former players who publically stated they wish they would have stayed...Mike Taylor, Stinson and Blalock, Brandon Hawkins.

    WJ had a chance to have the team built around him and be the leader and face of the program. Hard to see why he'd leave that, even if GMac was a little hard on him, he should have known it was for his benefit. If WJ wanted more run and gun, I think that could have happened with more bodies to rotate in.

    Re: i've got a question

    On what terms? If he just showed back up like nothing happened? Not a chance.

    If he issues a public apology to all and admitted he wasn't honest - yes.

    Mike Taylor got another chance - so should Wes.

    However, I'd say there's less than a 1% chance of that happening.

    Wrong, half the fans probably wouldn't even know/care another 25 percent would get over it and then there would be a smattering of booing. Not everyone takes ISU sports as serious as everyone here.

    What would you do if...

    Wesley Johnson decides he screwed up and tries to return to Iowa State. Personally, I would be fine with it, but with some circumstances. First of all, he comes out and addresses the media, answers all questions, and most importantly, sincerely apologizes. Until then, no way. I have a hard time seeing Hilton erupt into boos if he were introduced, but unfortunately I can see it happening, and would be very disappointed.
