    A good article about Maymon from the Trib

    Mid-Iowa Newspapers - Go Cyclones - Courtney Linehan
    Sounds like he really liked the staff, but Marquette was just too good of an option.

    Losing Johnson and not getting Maymon means little???????

    I like that she is possitive but losing your best player and probably your best recruit in the same week means more than little.

    I agree, im not sure how it means nothing especially in the short term. maybe in the long term. Things would go over easier if we could have gotten him. what we need is

    Negedu, Brackins call your former teamate, I can always have hope

    Agree - for the past few weeks, Courtney Linehan is writing as if she works for the ISU sports information department. C'mon Courtney...

    Yeah, its pretty amazing to me what people will believe when it comes to their sports teams. I think its all a defense mechanism.

    I thought I had never seen anything more ridiculous than those who thought losing Taylor wouldn't hurt us last year (there were even those who thought we would be better off without him because he tended to turn the ball over, if you can believe it), now everyone will rationalize the loss of Wesley Johnson.

    That reminds me of the article where she points out like 18 things that have gone wrong, then says we shouldn't worry about it. It makes me chuckle.

    There's also an old saying that wallowing in self pity will get you nowhere.

    THere is also a saying that if you lose your best player and best recruit it tends to suck.

    Well maybe there was not a saying but now there is.

    Don't worry...when he decides to transfer after his soph. season, we'll just contact his AAU coach and work a deal.

    You mean like Wes Johnson playing the 4? How bout Kenny Pratt? Hopefully Clinton Mann won't be mad that he's really undersized for his position.

    Well quotes from him and his dad both have him playing the 3 and maybe a shot at the 2 ( which I doubt). He may play the 4 in high school but that is just b/c he is bigger than anyone else

    Also everywhere I look has him listed as a SF (which is normally a 3) and I think 6'6 is plenty tall for a SF.
