    The Johnsons

    I have been really impressed by the play of both Wesley and Cory Johnson so far. Those guys are playing hard nosed ball, and really getting in good position on the boards and setting up a lot of second chances. With both being true freshmen, I think they could be scary good by the time they leave Iowa State. I also think we need to come up with some good nicknames as to differentiate between the two over the next 4 years (wejo, cojo, i dont know, someone come up with something good!). It's nice to be able to watch a team you can really be proud of!


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: The Johnsons

    Cory Johnson becomes CJ, it's quick, easy and doesn't sounds like a playground nickname. Then Wes doesn't need a nickname.

    Re: The Johnsons

    How about a two people that always come dressed up as some Johnson and Johnson products wearing W. and C. Johnson jerseys.

    Come on, you could make a whole season out of it: Band-Aids, Q-Tips, Reach Toothbrushes, pills, etc. It'd be great....

    Re: The Johnsons

    You can have Wesley Johnson be called "the Wes" for a couple seasons until Wes Eikmeier gets to campus then we will have two dudes named Wes.

    Re: The Johnsons

    I think we'll be seeing a lot of #4 jerseys for the next few years in Ames.

    For both Wesley and Austin Arnaud. :)

    I would have to agree, he is going to have an outstanding career at Iowa State.

    Nice Blazing Saddles reference, funniest movie ever made.

    How about "The Brothers Johnson"... R&B/Soul group from the 70's. Yea, I know what you're thinking but I still think it's good.

    We could always go the big Johnson route...

    Re: The Johnsons

    Both of them look like they are going to provide important things for their team. CJ is a real worker...I've seen him play all 3 games plus the exhibition vs WS and I don't think I have seen him take a play off yet. Wes is going to be able to play inside and out. I am PUMPED about the direction of the program already! It's nice to see some passion on the defensive end and an organized TEAM offense.
