    I was looking for a thread about this before posting it, and didn't see a name that sounded like what I was looking for. Oops!

    Great work Ellis! What a class act and great representation of what Iowa State is all about. This guy was one of my favorite players of all time to watch at ISU, just absolutely loved life and what he was doing.

    that quote from Geoffrey is a little creepy

    Re: Great Job to Ellis Hobbs!!

    Okay, I'll throw this out as a theory and see if anyone else thinks I'm on the right track.

    Iowa fans have made a big deal out of Hobbs using his high school instead of ISU on his little bio.

    Maybe, just maybe, Hobbs was waiting to get his degree from ISU before using ISU on his bio. He seems like a pretty standup guy, so maybe he believes since he didn't graduate from ISU, he couldn't use it.

    Now that he has his degree, it will be interesting to see if he does put down Iowa State in his bio for television.

    Again, just a theory.

    One more time...GET OVER IT!!!

    Iowa fans? Wrong...Stupid ISU fans make a big deal out of it! These things are taped ONCE, before the season. A few years ago he said ISU, last year he said DeSoto...who give's a flying **** what players say in those things...

    Ellis is a standup guy; he's awesome to talk with.

    Good luck in Philla E-III!

    I AM over it, vanillathriilla. I could care less if he uses his high school, grade school, college or sunday school name under his bio.

    Read some of my other posts about Hobbs. I've never stopped rooting for the guy.

    Geess, you must not have gotten @@@@ lately. Why so cranky?

    Re: Great Job to Ellis Hobbs!!

    Ok, get ready to blast me in the forum. I know it says a lot about the state of Iowa and ISU, but do we need to get McCarney's quote everytime something happens with one of his ex players? Don't know if I have seen that anywhere else. I realize Stevie Hicks death was major, so we got Mac's thoughts. Can't we just leave Mac alone, he no longer works for ISU?

    First of all, I have read a lot of your post where you go on endlessly about a topic, so you have no business telling anyone to "get over it."

    Again, I like Ellis Hobbs, I think he's one of the top 10 players ISU has ever had. I had no problem who he refers to under his bio.

    I'll mail you $5 so you can go find a little action this weekend so you won't be so uptight.
