    ...on gocyclones

    Go Cyclones - Youthful basketball team preps for practice

    good to hear hamilton has his boot off and scott is already at full speed from the knee surgery. i also dont remember GMac speaking of camaraderie in the past like this, that could mean good things.

    Good read. I fear our basketball team is going to be "interesting" this year.
    And I don't think I mean that in a good way.

    With few scholarships on the board for the next two seasons, McDermott said his staff can be more particular about which players they recruit. He said it’s important to maintain the camaraderie he sees in this year’s squad.
    I would hope he'd be "more selective" EVERY year.

    Just remember it isn't Coach's fault. He was left with nothing, and so he had to recruit people that he obviously knew nothing about.

    How does all of this scholarship stuff work, anyway? Aren't we full up through 2010. How do we sign Barnes, and I really like what Kelm brings to the table. We don't have enough open scholarships available, does this signal the end of the road with Barnes?

    it seems like there is always someone in every MBB thread asking about the scholarship situation. its really unclear what it will look like when 2010 comes but trust me. if harrison chooses ISU there WILL be a scholarship ready for him... no doubt.

    I remember last year Gmac was excited about the team chemistry too. A lot of people speculated that it was because McIntosh was off the team.

    I am pumped for the season to start, but that is just because I am a huge homer.

    I'm excited for this year, not because I think we'll be very good, but just to see how things come together after losing Wes. Hopefully this will be the end of our rapid player turnover, and we'll start to establish some veteran leadership on the team.

    The best I can imagine the season going would be an NIT birth, but I think that is unlikely. If the guys come together quickly and Craig and Diante take big leaps from year 1 to year 2 and Lucca is all he's been advertised to be, then we could be better than I expect though.....

    People are going to be surprised. Even though people don't overly like our point guards, we have 2 returning PGs which will mean much more to our team than last year when we had 0 returning guards. Plus, we should have some outside shooting.

    You followed up your refusal to have an expectation with an expectation of a long year.
