    Wes Eikmeier Update

    It appears that Coach MacD knew what he was doing again by getting an early commit from this player. He set a school record by scoring 45 points in a game Thursday night.

    I personally will be glad to have a role player that we can count on to hit shots when we need them, much like Hurl Beechum used to do. How many times have other teams brought someone off the bench to beat us ala Texas A&M last year.

    I think Wes being a coaches son can only be an added bonus for us.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier Update

    Thanks for the update! I was kind of down on that scholarship, but maybe it'll turn out to be a good thing.

    I was down on the scholarship because there hasn't been much fanfare when it comes to Eikmeier. Don't know much about him, and the less I know the less excited I am. I don't know if he'll be a role player.

    And btw, what in the world did you do to get such an awful rep? Good lord, you must have ****** some people off.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier Update

    Okay, Cobb's rep is self explanatory.
    Question. How many 6' 3" shooting guards avg. 23 pts.? That alone won't make him our man. From what I hear though he's got that Jake Sullivan dedication. Keep him healthy.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier Update

    He only hit 13 of 16 free throws in the 45 point game. Must have been fouled a lot.

    I'll Take a Guy With BB Skills Any Day

    IMO basketball fans & "recruiting experts" put too much emphasis athleticism and undervalue kids with great basketball skills.

    This isn't meant to be a slam on Rashon Clark, but most fans look at his jumping ability and his highlight reel slam dunks and project him as some superstar. The reality is he's a slightly above average player who lacks one critical basketball skill- ballhandling.

    Look at ISU's game vs. UNI. ISU had better athletes, but UNI had a kid who ISU & Iowa wouldn't offer a scholarship. In G-Mac's system have players with basketball skills will probably be more important than great athletes. If G-Mac can get guys with BB skills & athleticism- thats ideal. But if not- I think he'll take the guy who can shoot, dribble, etc over a great athlete.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier Update

    Wes is a rated as a 3 star if that means anything these days. I think he will be a pretty good player for us.

    tycobb makes simple assesment and his rep gets pulled in for reason not to listen........can the rep level.....it is worthless and bias.

    If this is to be apolitical site great, but it is to be open and discussable, barring the posted guidelines.

    Gotta love them clones!!

    Re: Wes Eikmeier Update

    In that article it also said he was boxed + 1 and triangle + 2. I'm guessing those points didn't come that easy then.

    A basket from 14 feet is worth the same as a monster dunk. In a BCS conference, having both is preferred for success.

    I agree the rep level feature is worthless. I read thur the posts and some guy writes the same thing as someone else and their level shoots up while other do not move or go down, leads me to believe it is the buddy system you scratch my back I will scratch yours.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier Update

    Wes was at the game today. (Drake game) He was sitting in the Athletics section behind the pep band.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:
