    When did we pick up Bubu Palo?

    I haven't been to the boards lately but today is the first time I've heard that Bubu is going to ISU. Did he get a scholarship?

    I took my wife to dinner at The Latin King sometime in May and unfortunately it was prom night for several high schools. The one positive is that while I'm waiting to be seated I ended up talking to Bubu. (There was a bus load of Ames High kids there.) He said Kentucky was talking to him before Gillespie got fired and now he was looking to go to prep school for a year. But was still talking to ISU and Iowa. I'm glad he's on board for several reasons, a) i think he can play, b) he's from Ames and probably won't quit if he doesn't get playing time right away, c) has to give us a better chance of signing Barnes, and d) he's a really nice kid. He'd represent any team well. He probably won't be a star but this guy could become the all-time crowd pleaser at ISU. He has a lot of charisma, he's local, and his name is Bubu.

    There's a thread here of you'll find it. Walk on. A completely different tangent, I think Alex Dorr should be nicknamed Yogi, so our walk-ons for this class have an instant connection. Mop up time will forever be known as picinic baskets.

    Re: When did we pick up Bubu Palo?

    There are alot of people that read these for reasons that I have not figured out let alone reply to them. But to lower myself to nicknaming 18 yr olds who have turned down offers to play other places to WALK-ON (recruited) to a school they would like to play for or make better, KNOWING that they may not see floor time - shows me what kind of person they really are. GOOD LUCK to Alex and Bubu!!! They don't deserve this kind of smack!!!

    What's so wrong about giving someone a nickname?

    Re: When did we pick up Bubu Palo?

    When a kid walks on they should never be made fun of. It takes a special person to go to a school knowing the cards are stacked against them to ever play, expecally when they could go elsewhere and play. Many work PT, play BB, go to school, and have to pay their way. They also get used and abused at practice. Having quality walkons helps the program.

    Re: When did we pick up Bubu Palo?

    wow... I didn't think anyone was talking bad about this kid at all. Hm...

    Either way, I hadn't heard of him yet really either. I'm anxious to see these kids play.

    I thought the Yogi thing was meant to be cute. That's how I took it. Seemed innocent enough.

    Re: When did we pick up Bubu Palo?

    Wow, sometimes threads just get derailed by things that aren't even there. I am pretty sure no Cyclone fan is trashing the kid. Just have 'em nicknames. Ever had one? It's not usually meant to be disparaging and I don't think it was here either. I am very happy with our incoming Cyclones and wish nothing but the best nicknames and luck in the future.

    Re: When did we pick up Bubu Palo?

    Do you know what i love about this? Everybody on this site KNEW that Bubu wouldn't play Cyclone basketball. They KNEW he was gonna play soccer. While me and one or two others were really hoping he would come play here just to prove all of you wrong. I really believe he will end up a starter. Not this coming season, but eventually. All of his short comings can be worked on or taught. I'm very happy he decided to play Cyclone basketball. I think he'll surprise a lot of people. Maybe this is a step towards stability in our roster.
