    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    too bad he came along this year and not in the last 2...half the guys on that list would be in the NBA right now if not for the rule change. This might be the best Frosh class we've ever seen.

    I hope you are kidding? Either that or your're a teenager who doesn't remember some of the great classes every coach since John Orr has had.

    I could be wrong but I think he's talking about the freshman class as a whole in the NCAA, not the ISU squad.

    Re: WJ

    All is forgiven on XMAS. Expect Wesley recognition to go up if Marsden or Gray or Jiri get better and allows some openings for wesley.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Bring in the two missing pieces to McD's puzzle-a big true point guard and an enforcer down low, together with these guys having a year in the system, and I think next year we are already back knocking on the NCAA door.

    Garrett, Brackins, W. Johnson, Rahshon and Taylor sounds like a pretty good combination and there will be several others who can play right along with them

    It'll be interesting next year. I think Cory Johnson is going to get so good we will not be able to keep him off the floor. He is the only guy in the post at this point that plays a shred of defense. If Brackins lives up to his hype (I don't think there should be any reason why we would have a five star player sitting on the bench unless he is just terrible ala Taggert, but what are the odds of that again) we should have a formidable front court.

    Next Year:
    5: Brackins, Jiri, Marsden
    4: Cory Johnson, Alex Thompson (remember him too!)
    3: Rahshon, Wesley (WJ can spell whomever at 3, or 4)
    2: Mike T, Dodie, Staiger?
    1: Garrett (5 inches taller than CMac) Corey

    Next Year After (Yeah I know, getting carried away)
    5: Brackins, Marsden
    4: CJ
    3: WJ, Staiger (good size for a swingman)
    2: Dodie, Boozer (plays half like his brother?)
    1: Garrett or Buckley

    What do you think?

    Re: WJ

    Next year i think Jiri is going to get lost in the rotation of Brackins, Marsden, CJ, WJ, Rahshon,and Thompson. I hope with those six we will not have to worry much about Jiri! Another thing, I don't see any reason WJ would start this year and not next year. While I think CJ is going to be a good player, WJ is a better all around player right now!

    I was looking to get Wesley back to his actually position of the 3, but you have a point!

    No he won't, he will be back next year... He will come back in the 07-08 basketball year and be a redshirt Junior.

    Not to speak for Bob, but I think he is referencing the fact that Thompson will have 2 years of eligibility, and Bub didn't list him in the two deeps for 2008-2009

    I was under the influence that Thompson is a junior who is sitting out this year, using his redshirt, which means he will be a senior next year. Please correct me if I am wrong though!
