    Darks #6?

    I saw that he was wearing the number six jersey in practice. Will he be wearing that this year. I like it when playmaker's wear low numbers. I don't know why but a guy looks better making plays wearing 6 than 80. Just opinion.

    I thought I saw him wearing #6 in the practice video they showed yesterday on KCCI...

    Probably his high school #, and just had to wait for Scales to graduate to wear it, like Bates and Meyer...

    I would almost rather have a play-maker not make plays if their number was high. It's not even fun to watch because their number makes it look so terrible.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    THANK GOD! I always found myself cheering against Darks last year due his number. TWO numbers on your chest--really?

    Agreed. Jerry Rice looked like crap in his #80 uniform while making all those impossible one-handed, deep post touchdown catches.

    Re: Darks #6?

    This Q is kinda pertaining to #'s, but does anyone know if Iowa State will be putting a new # on the Jerseys for sale this year or stick with the same #4 (Arnaud's) from last year. I guess I already have that one and want another to buy and I really would like Leonard Johnson's. Plus even though it's football not basketball I think the #23 sells well. Selling Away jerseys would be nice too.

    That got so old. If he'd had a better #, he'd have a better record. A real playmaker doesn't settle for that 80s junk.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
