    The more I read, the more I like what I hear coming out of the locker room. These guys seem to get it, they like each other and everyone wants to work hard and do their part.

    I know it's early....

    It sounds like this team is close and does have some good goals going into the season. That is good news because after the Wes deal some made it sound like the BB team and program was a train wreck.

    Hopefully the Mann injury tells us that Diante has bulked up since last season.

    or that he has a boney elbow. that would be devastating for boxing out, just throw them an elbow to the rib and that will clear them out.

    Read up a couple posts. It's pretty easy to get. DG is still skinny. Our players are skinny. Our weight program sucks.

    And will you please change your picture of Wes? I am sick of seeing his ugly face every time you post. Thank you

    I would have to agree on the criticism of ISU's MBB weight training program. Some of our guys need some more mass to bang in the Big 12.

    Amen. I know they use machines a lot, and not as many free weight exercises. Bulk is needed for so many of the players - they should train like football players in the off-season. I wonder how hard coach Moser pushes them.

    Re: Rick Brown Blog...

    Basketball is not about bulk or mass. What if Diante put on 30 lbs of muscle and screwed his shot all to hell because his arms are now not as flexible and what not? Yes I agree Big 12 ball is big and physical, but in basketball bulk is not what you need.

    A lot of teams train for mass. They had television segment on North Carolina basketball last winter concerning how they train, and they were certainly training for bulk and strength. Hansbrough has gained a ton since high school, as have his teammates. It's not all genetics, it has to be a mind-set.
    Increased muscle mass is so important for injury prevention also.

    Post of the year!! What if Diante put on 30 lbs of muscle and screwed his shot all to hell?

    What shot are we talking about exactly? Diante's shot is already screwed all to hell, so I think 30 lbs is exactly what he needs. When you shoot 22% from 3 than you have nowhere to go but up. Lift, lift, and lift if you are Diante
