    So, are we convinced no one else is leaving?

    Seems like there was good support for Coach from Lucca, Craig, etc. through this whole thing. Maybe it's wishful thinking but I get the sense that those that remain are committed and here for the long haul.

    Anyone else?

    Nothing would surprise me at this point.

    Re: So, are we convinced no one else is leaving?

    I thought to myself last week looks like no one else is leaving the BB team. Then 2 days later there is this.

    Re: So, are we convinced no one else is leaving?

    I'm not sure if I can be convinced of that for a while. If someone had asked me Monday morning to give them a list of players they felt were "true Cyclones" , believed in the staff and would never defect - Wesley Johnson would have been near the top - if not at the top of the list.

    Things seem to change very quickly around here.

    Just when it seems like we're going to have a stable off-season and the worm may turn the right way for us - someone squashes the thing.

    I think Coach Mac had a good point on MandM today about Lucca. If he was going to jet he had a gazillion reasons before this. Good chance he'll be here.

    Re: So, are we convinced no one else is leaving?

    Greg himself said after this deal nothing would surprise him.

    However, his long term history is pretty good at player retention.

    Yeah he's had a lot of problems here, but may be more of a sign of what's been going on at ISU than Greg McDermott.

    Let's just hope not!

    Re: So, are we convinced no one else is leaving?

    It would be interesting to know if other schools are having player retention problems as well, specifically, those schools who have recently had a coaching change and are in the first 3 years of the new coach.

    Re: So, are we convinced no one else is leaving?

    I am confident that none of the current team members are leaving. I hope the 7 recruits coming to campus this year and the ones coming in next year stick to their word.

    Re: So, are we convinced no one else is leaving?

    I was really glad to see that Boozer seems to be staying. His name was floated a day or 2 ago as someone who might leave. I want to see what he can do in a few years.

    I'd put out pretty good odds that the defections are done.

    At the end of the year, I would guess Boozer as the first one to leave. But, now that Wes has left, I would think that might give Boozer the possibility of more playing time. I think Boozer will stay.

    The only one I could see leaving is Boozer, but if he didn't leave this year after a very limited role, I don't think he will.

    I think Boozer will stay, he's got a hot *** girlfriend here in Ames! Who would want to leave that behind, and he's going to get more minutes now that Wesley is gone.
