    Yeah we'll call it a "mutual decision."


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

    IMO and in others i have talked to....

    He wouldn't have been able to play in the Big 12. So he is saying, it is more ISU showing him the door than him saying he didn't want ISU...

    Re: Dykstra

    I have no inside information, but the I read it, he wasn't willing/able to commit to the sacrifice it would take to get to the level he needed in order to compete

    Or maybe he just wasn't good enough.

    Nothing against the kid, I wish him well

    Re: Dykstra

    Dykstra couldn't play in the Big 12. He is a tall and thin guy that likes to play on the perimter. I saw him play last year 3 times, and was shocked the Cyclones wanted him. However it happened, it was a good move for both parties.

    Dykstra is leaning hard to South dakota State. His teammate Heemstra is also leaning in that direction.

    Trust me, Coach Mac did the right thing.

    Re: Dykstra

    lol, neither did Kevin Durant? So are you saying the Dykstra is an uber athlete with a sweet jumper that is destined to be longtime all star in the NBA? Man, I wonder why no other big schools are recruiting him???
