    Some guys now have a real opportunity

    I just watched the player interviews on cyclones.com, and it really makes you think that there are going to be some guys, like Boozer, Diante, Craig, Lucca, Haluska and Petey that are really going to have a great opportunity next season. As was previously stated, even though Wes missed 5 games he took the most shots on the team - 288 in fact. That's almost 10 a game that are going to go to other players. I really do hope they look at it as a chance for them to really shine and get their name out there. The opportunity is there because the staff is going to have to find somebody willing to step up.

    I think the same way. Maybe this whole deal will push other to get better and want to prove a point.

    Excellent point...one man's trash is another's treasure. I certainly hope some of our remaining players can really "step up"...that would be great!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    No doubt.

    We'll see who's up for the challenge and who's not. I noted yesterday - this defection could really take this team and make it a very tight group with an unbreakable bond and a "us against the world" mentality.

    Re: Some guys now have a real opportunity

    I fully expect that this team will rally around one another and their coach. There's still plenty of talent and/or potential, and this could be a real motivator to gel together early.

    We'll renew our season tickets, and watch this thing come together!!!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I really think Booze will be vastly improved from last year, and get a lot more playing time.

    That wouldn't suck.

    Re: Some guys now have a real opportunity

    You guys see a lot more potential from Boozer than I do, but then I've seen very little of him period. What I recall is that he has an awkward looking shot that he is kinda slow to get off and is not overly quick. I hope my brief impressions are WAY off! He didn't see the floor much last year, so early season stuff is all I saw of him. Have I mis-characterized his game? If so, let me know!! I'm seriously curious and not being a smart***.

    I think he's got a nice shot and he makes an awful lot of his three's but he's painful to watch dribble the ball.

    Even more meaningful (than shots) for most players will be the extra PT. 30+ minutes per game just became available.

    Re: Some guys now have a real opportunity

    Booze was way behind the curve, but is coming around. He has a funny looking shot, but is pretty accurate. His ballhandling has improved, but he's still a mess on the defensive side of the ball.
    Oh, one other thing. His freshman and sophomore years, he was considered a top 25 recruit at PF, before he quit growing.
