    Dr. Strangeclone

    A title in an ode to one of my favorite moves....

    I know a lot of you think I get down on the MBB program, a lot....especially if my rep is any indication. However, I made a post over at my blog saying why I'm optimistic, blindly, anyways.

    Dr. Strangeclone, or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace the Basketball*Team - Clone Chronicles

    I still doubt that this year will be an overwhelming success, but I do think that the sheer amount of new blood in (we have no one with more than one year playing in an ISU uni) will make this team interesting to watch if nothing else.

    It really seems that if we do indeed switch to dribble drive, it's an offense that's got a big chance to make a big name out of my favorite player, Diante. To that end, we'll be so much better this year if we can just put the damn ball in the bucket.

    But yeah, anyways, I'm not ALWAYS down on the program.

    We need players who want to take charge and not role players. Stinson is fgone, Taylor is gone, Jiri and Wesley are gone. We need a I want the ball type of player.


    Let Prohm's Posse Ride: Georges, Georgios, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.

    Agree, but Jiri was more of a go-to-guy than Wes was...

    I also think that CB needs to take this role and run with it...

    It's refreshing to hear some positive insight once in a while. I think to make this work, DG needs to improve at finishing when he gets to the rim, then he'll be much more effective at drawing the defense.

    DG has worked his butt off...He had some bad habits from high school. Nobody could stay in front of him in high school, so he was not forced to do things the right way.

    I think some of Wes's problem is that he DIDN'T want the ball. He didn't want to be a leader.

    Re: Dr. Strangeclone

    I can remember the CrossCyed point-of-view BEFORE CycloneFanatic ever came around (guess that makes me old school :) )

    I've always respected your basketball knowledge and your insight on ISU basketball. It's unvarnished, not the overly rosey, nor the overly sour view. Your opinion has always been based on facts first, then interpretation based on the facts. Not the other way around.

    In short, i don't think you've got anything to apologize for. You're one of the best assets in the ISU Men's basketball media space.

    I think that makes you at least five years old.

    I disagree. I respect his opinion even if at times I disagree. Ultimately, he wants what's best for ISU basketball, and you just can't fault that.

    Yeah, well mpc is a horrible intramural point guard and never listens to coaching.

    I help the team most by NOT playing, and an intelligent team leader/captain would have realized this immediately.

    And hell yes that counts. Brains count for something too.
