    Thanks for posting this!

    Grayer was a tremendous player at ISU. A lot of people don't give him the credit he deserves because he did not have a stellar pro career. But before he banged his knee up he was as explosive as any player in the country. Some of you may not recall that he played on the last amateur Olympic team the USA had in 1988. I believe he is the only MBB Olympian ever for ISU.

    The one thing I still remember about Grayer is SI did an article about him and they had a picture of him standing in a corn field in bib overalls...which was comical because this guy was among the sharpest dressed students at ISU. I don't think I ever saw him on campus without a dress shirt, dress slacks, and dress shoes on. When it got cold he wore a sharp-looking leather coat. I still laugh when I think about that and wonder how he was talked into doing it.

    For those of you looking for the next great ISU player to come from Class B in Nebraska or Class 1A in Iowa, read the quote in this article: "Jeff Grayer Sr. played at Flint Northwestern, on perhaps one of the great high school teams in state history. His teammates included Andre Rison, Glenn Rice and Anthony Pendleton, all standout college athletes who played professionally. Rison was a standout football player in the NFL. “Out of the 15 players we had at the time, 12 went to Division I colleges,” recalled Jeff Grayer Sr."



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

    It's also pretty cool that Antoine Joubert is their coach. IIRC, he played on the highly ranked Mich. team Grayer and Co. beat in 1986.

    I bet Grayer doesn't hesitate to remind him of that.

    Antoin Joubert was awesome. Had the knee pads. The whole thing. Loved watching Joubert play.

    He also rocked Jheri curls and a pencil-thin moustache.

    Those were the days.
