    When will this stuff end? Between Iowa and ISU basketball over the past 3-4 years, the number of players to leave has been unbelievable.

    This sucks. We knew Lee wasnt going to be part of the team. Lucca that would be a bad deal to lose him at this point. If he plays well in Germany this summer it would be hard for him to come back. Why is it taking Boozer taking so long to make his mind up? Is it because he is wants to stay at ISU but also knows his PT will be limited at ISU?

    Boozer would do well with more playing time, either here or somewhere else.

    Re: DM Register article on Lucca and others

    Anyone else, besides me, really starting to lose any kind of interest in college athletics anymore?

    I'm getting sick and tired of all the transferring, both players and coaches in the college ranks.

    If GMac loses Staiger and Boozer... we won't even recognize our MBB team next season... again!

    We should have had a team consisting of Degand, Tasheed Carr, Wesley Johnson, Craig Brackins, and Shawn Taggert right now. How would you like that about now?

    I'm just tired of it all. And my interest is going right into the toilet.

    I feel like we're Iowa State Junior College.

    I agree... the more I think about the possibilities the more depressed I get.

    Cast your mind... It's a crisp late day in March, and the Cyclones have reached the Final 4. Led by a Senior or 2... and some Jr's trading time off the bench. (Since we're dreaming), it just makes you wonder... What on earth had to have happened for a situation like this to come true? ...and why can't it happen now?

    I can't help but think if we had such talent (to create the very situation I just described) ...these guys would be turning Pro or transfering to a top 10 program after a season or 2. I guess GMAC said it best... "this sort of thing will happen in this day and age." (doesn't answer my question, but I guess he's right.)

    Re: DM Register article on Lucca and others

    Cut it however you want but Lucca Staiger is the biggest loss of the three, if it happens. I know quite of few people dog Lucca on the season he had but he is still by far the biggest scoring threat. Of the three Charles has been the one I have been waiting for to leave. Like the guy, but he has the best chance to make an impact at a mid major and he was going to be the sixth or seventh man off the bench next season.

    Also has great as the dream of having the players you mentioned above would be, it just wouldn't have ever happened that way. It would be great, but it wasn't going to happen. I think the best case scenario would have been for next years team to include Degand, Garrett, Johnson, Brackins and one other player. But if we keep most of those guys from the transition from Morgan to McDermott we never get Wesley Johnson in the first place. So who knows, it is all a dream that is fun to have. But is not a legitimate one!

    Two nice posts in a row there. I agree, why worry about what didn't happen. Can't change it now.

    Lucca would be the bigger loss of the ones mentioned. He can really be dangerous on next year's team.


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

    Last years problem was that we had nobody to mask Lucca's shortcomings in athleticism. If the guys we brought in are what we expect them to be, Lucca has a chance to be hidden a bit in the defense and won't have to be expect to get back on defense as quickly in several cases. Lucca was one of many unathletic players last year, especially because of his injuries. Next year he will be one of very few.
