    Buckley, Eikmeier updates

    Go Cyclones - Cyclones maximizing potential in final stretch
    Since Day One my games been up and down, my confidence levels been up and down, my performance has been up and down, Buckley said. He never knew what hed get out of me. But recently Ive talked with him, and its helped me to play better.
    Its been a long season for me, Ive had a lot of ups and downs, but Im finally becoming more comfortable in the system and becoming more confident in my game playing in the system were in, Buckley said. I feel like Ive been playing defense better, Ive been working a lot harder than Ive been in the past.
    A little insight into Eikmeier's lack of playing time:
    I got the flu right before the season started, and I was sick when we were in Hawaii, didnt play very well there, Eikmeier said. I had the flu twice, sprained my ankle, had a back spasm for a week or two. The hip injury. My hand, I didnt really dislocate it, but it was something on my thumb. I hyper-extended my elbow.

    More proof that he needed a RS to get physically ready.

    Re: Buckley, Eikmeier updates

    You can't anticipate injuries but that is one reason why I thought he should be redshirted, the physicality might be able to get to him more since he's so small.

    No kidding. The guy is a walking disaster. I'm trying to figure out what he hasn't suffered from this year.

    Maybe his size has something to do with all those injuries. . .

    Re: Buckley, Eikmeier updates

    Eik reminds me of Iverson in mid-season form listing his maladies.

    now if they played similarly. ..

    Re: Buckley, Eikmeier updates

    not sure if I am being hard on coach and players here, but seems like there is a great lack of communication between McD and his players. Buckley: "Wasn't sure what coach wanted from me...."
    Do they not discuss these things?

    He's a freshman...That's why Mac sat him down and talked to him...Looking too far into it.

    Sorry, try again. Injuries happen. See Blake Griffin.

    I like to see a guy trying that hard, a good sign he's not afraid to mix it up. Now he just needs to find a way to play that hard AND not get injured.

    I thought the same thing. The history with WJ would indicate that this may be an issue. Is there a chance Buckley transfers?



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    So Griffen gets one concussion, and Eikmeier has had like 5 injuries. I agree that you can't control injuries but clearly there is a pattern there and it's not out of line to attribute it to his slight build.

    Re: Buckley, Eikmeier updates

    Comparing WJ with Buckley is just funny...Worry if you want, but it's pointless.

    Eik needs to change his shot. He shoots from his chest. It's wayyyyy too low.
