    Hopefully it's nothing serious and he'll be back on the field for the Spring Game in three weeks.

    Good thing we're going to be super deep at WR. Hopefully he comes back healthy... from the way the tidbit was written he may have just gotten the wind knocked out of him bad and was taken to get XRAY's for safety reasons.


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

    We aren't "super deep" at WR. We have allot of bodies at WR, that doesn't mean you are "super deep" at it.

    Agreed. One of our more thin positions talent wise.

    Not true at all. We have Johnson, Darks, Williams, all with good game experience. We're deep.

    Williams and Darks are the only two to really show they can make big plays in a game.

    We can HOPE we have depth.. but I totally see the concern. We dont have many PROVEN play makers at WR.

    we also have some good jucos coming in


    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."

    Agreed. We have a lot of guys on the roster... lots of htem with really high 'recruiting rankings'. We have only a handful that have proven to make really big plays during games.

    Money, Darks, Williams have.

    Re: Josh Lenz injured

    We have a lot of POTENTIAL at WR. It hasn't proven very much yet, IMO. It seems that not a year goes by without us saying how deep of a receiving corps we have, yet since Blythe's sophomore year, and some good play by Sumrall in '08 and Hamilton last year, no one's really been a difference maker at that position for us.

    One of they keys for success this year, is to have someone blow up at that position.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Sorry but none of them have shown they can be a big time threat in the Big 12. We have a lot of bodies right now but it is hard to say we have depth

    Good to hear. How's your brother enjoying spring practice? I assume this extra year to study the playbook, and watching it in action is going to make it a lot easier on him getting back out on the field.

    Re: Josh Lenz injured

    What other position would you prefer to lose someone at? O-line? Nope. LB? Nope. DL? Nope. I'd say we're deeper talent wise at WR than any other position on the field. I understand the statement that not a lot of guys are "proven", but that could be said with any position.

    That's great news!

    As for the WR position overall, we have more than enough depth numbers wise. If none of them are Big 12 caliber, then that falls completely on our scouting ability. But I hate it when anyone says we don't have enough depth at this position.

    We have.....

    Darks
    S. Johnson
    Money
    Lenz
    Williams
    Blanton
    Jennert
    Range
    Gary
    Young
    Jarvis West

    That's 11 scholarship WR's for basically 3 positions. That's enough. As I said, if you are going to argue that these 11 aren't any good, that's a different argument completely. That falls on scouting. But it isn't like we've ignored this position.
