    Re: Sunday Blog: One Wild Saturday

    Im going to bail out on you Chris. After watching Dendy start yesterday, even though he is a pretty good rebounder, Hamilton has an offense of slide over him in that department. With all that said, HAMILTON GET WELL SOOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAHHHH!!

    Great article. That had to be something to walk into Hilton and be hit with all that.

    I agree that we really saw how important Hamilton is right now to this team. And maybe one of the only guys humble enough to fit into the team concept right now.

    Question that occurred to me talking to someone this morning: Is another part of the length of Chris's suspension to get everyone else's attention? One guy dismissed, but a bit player right now. Another one, key to the future, suspended essentially until further notice. Is Mac looking for these guys to understand that nobody's safe if they want to be like that?

    If so, more power to him. Nice work.


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

    Boozer is definitely a spark plug and I agree he shouldn't be starting. The thing that really bothers me is his spotty playing time. He averaged 8.2 minutes per game last year and only 8.9 this year before yesterday. He had a combined six minutes in the Duke and Houston game. If Greg is really in this job to make these young men grow and the like, and it's not all about wins, I'd like to see hard work and dedication rewarded.

    I watched the 1st half of the game this morning. It didn't take more than a minute of watching to realize why Dendy doesn't start. While he brings some energy and is powerful with his first step, he is terrible at help defense. They got a lot of layups that they wouldn't have gotten with Hamilton in the game. He slides over and shows so much better. Really a better player than Iowa State fans give him credit for

    I have always considered you an average to above average journalist Chris, but after the "itís certainly no reason to wet your pants" statement, I have elevated you to the upper echelons of the journalism ladder!

    Seriously, you do a great job covering the Cyclones. Keep up the good work!

    still no explanation for the pomlee dismissal. i know there might be bigger items at hand with hamilton/colivn situations, but you think something would have been said or reported?

    Pomlee has nobody to blame, but himself...He was warned on multiple occasions.

    Good stuff, CW. On some level, you've got to love days like that, no?


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Sunday Blog: One Wild Saturday

    The ladies were taking on a top 15 conference rival. The men…not so much. But the women’s team really plays hard. They dive for loose balls. They show all sorts of emotion.
    The women are never going to be perfect (no one is, of course) and they had an off shooting night last night... but I realized one thing while watching them- I don't find myself worrying that they are going to make a serious fundamental mistake every time they have the ball.
