    So, this is really small of me....

    but I was just a little disappointed that ISU didn't give permission for any schools on our future schedules to contact Wesley Johnson.

    A venal, vindictive, vicious part of me would have really enjoyed booing the h$ll out of WJ when he stepped back into Hilton.

    Not the best quality to have, but that's just the way a part of me feels.

    They did the right thing. Just a disappointing episode.

    This might come off mean but I was kind of hoping ISU would only give a list out of like the 5-10 worst schools in basketball for the last couple years. He kind of back doored ISU so why not do it right back to him? ISU owes him nothing for what he did.

    I'm with ISUChippewa, not only should it have been an option it should have been mandatory, so he'd have had to come back and face the fans he sneaked away from, and all of Hilton's wrath


    Ok so it is a bit mean and vengful, but booing Huluska was sooooo much fun....


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,

    Oh come on folks. Wes Johnson played his heart out for two years at ISU. Yes, he handled this very poorly and we all feel jilted, but he deserves better then what you're saying.

    It's probably best for everyone if we just put this behind us. ISU was really nice to give him a chance to go to a good program, get good coaching, and still make the NBA. The release list is very strong.

    Also, I find it really interesting that 6/8 are Big East schools.

    Right. He sure seems to want to go out east.

    A lot of these were tough-minded, defensive coaches. Is that his game, or the game best suited to him?

    It's about time to move on. I do so wish this made more sense to me.
