    Dunson

    Is there an OFFICIAL release that states Dodie Dunson will not be here next season?

    No - just widespread conjecture

    There is no official ISU press release yet but it's unfortunately a done deal.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Dunson

    I wonder if they are deliberately spacing these departure announcements out so that it doesn't all come in one fell swoop, simply for appearance's sake. Cory Mac last month, Ross this month, player to be named when the semester ends?

    Do you know what they're waiting for? Is Dodie still here and finishing the semester? Likewise, has Corey McIntosh already left the school?

    Re: Dunson

    I'm just curious about how we know this without an official release. Ross made his decision yesterday morning and it was released by the end of the day. But with Dodie, it has been rumored for weeks with no certain indications.

    I'm not saying you're not correct, but John Walters was on the Kotlar show (replacement host) this AM and his comment on a direct Dodie-leaving query was, "don't believe everything you hear and I expect him to be in a Cyclone uniform next season".

    Re: Dunson

    I heard that too iccyfan. I don't think John Walters is going to go on air as saying that though. If he puts his balls on the chopping block like that and Dodie stays he'd look terrible. If a bunch of random dudes say it on the internet that's one thing, but if it's the voice of the Cyclones that another thing altogether.

    Re: Dunson

    Dodie is still on campus but I don't know what to say to Walter's comments. Either he is unaware of the situation or something has changed since I talked to people yesterday. It's been a more or less a done deal for several weeks now and I would be surprised if something changed that, but then again not much these days would really shock me.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Dunson

    It's just kind of bizzare that everybody on this site that talks about next year's team is saying that Dodie is for sure leaving for academic reasons, when I can't say I've heard that information anywhere else. Also, John Walters is a pretty good source.

    Re: Dunson

    If it's been a done deal for multiple weeks, then why hasn't it been released? I refer back to the Ross situation; that only took a matter of hours. Why is this situation (if true) any different?

    Re: Dunson

    I know it's a hot topic and all...I just wish it would go away until we hear something official from ISU.

    Oh what does he know about ISU basketball... JUST KIDDING!

    The rumors of him leaving started in the early winter by a couple of known sources for several reporters and insiders. The "chatter" really picked up in early March by the same sources as well as an additional source.

    Regardless of what happens, I'm just telling you what I and several others have been told from known connections. I don't post about 95% of what I hear but this was one thing that I reported since I have several sources saying it's more than likely a done deal. Now that doesn't mean things can't change but those same sources also told me about McIntosh and Marsden long before the news got out so I have no reason to doubt them on Dodie as well.

    That's understandable.

    Re: Dunson

    hmm this is all so confusing... but like isufan said lets all just wait to hear word from iowa state


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
