    Where does Hamilton fit on a scale. . . ?

    yeah, ok, he fits on the weight scale in the training room just fine. (He's 256 lbs. reportedly, long way to go to reach Agnew's girth.)

    No, what I wish to ask, where on a 1-10 aggression scale -- with nice kid Ross Marsden at one end (1) and mean nasty Jared Homan (10) at the other end -- does Justin Hamilton fit?

    Justin's still learning the game, the intracies of post play, so maybe he's tentative at times and we're not yet seeing the "true" JH. On the other hand, he has an innate nature, too, that must come through on the floor.

    Bottom line: Does he possess the personality to become a post "enforcer?"

    (Some here have seen the elite camps in Ames, the league games in Des Moines. So, perhaps someone has formed an opinion about this. Thanks.)

    Re: Where does Hamilton fit on a scale. . . ?

    It's just my opinion so take it for what it is worth. He looked fairly aggressive but most of all never looked lost on the court. He knew where to go and was not shy about playing down low. He is already more aggressive that AT (as is my sister) but he is not a Homan, but that is ok. The stronger he gets, the more confident and aggressive he will be down low.

    Re: Where does Hamilton fit on a scale. . . ?

    If I remember right, basically all of the guys in his family have played D1 football - he was a football player but got too tall for the sport. Hopefully that helps with the whole aggression thing.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    He is a 7. I didn't get to see Clint play, but from what I hear, he is a 10.

    Re: Where does Hamilton fit on a scale. . . ?

    Sometimes I think it is funny how people worship Homan... Sure, he played tough, but he played outright stupid alot of times too. How many times did he kill momentum by throwing up a hook from 15 feet, get frustrated, then commit some stupid foul 2 seconds later....

    Im not sure everyone misses all aspects, but you cant deny his tenacity. I want an angry man down low with smarts. Lets hope these guys have it.

    Very true of his senior year, won't deny that. But honestly, I have missed the days that we have someone underneath that truely can move people. Jiri and Brackins were decent last year, but I would take Homan and Vroman over them anyday.

    I think Brackins will develop it. It's not like those two guys were bulldogs in their early years/games.

    If Hamilton is gonna be a beast like that at 7 foot or whatever he is, then we are in for a treat. Even if he doesn't have the skills, he will be a great rebounder and defender.

    This is really all I ask for, for the post. Any scoring is just icing. We should have plenty of guys who can take it to the hoop or shoot. Big guy should be able to take command and throw it down over a defender too, but I am more concerned about defense.

    Homan actually did a good job passing from the post for us his senior year. Don't get me wrong, he wasn't great at it but he wasn't as bad as you make it seem
