    Open Tryouts

    This is a serious question. If we do not sign another player this spring and lose 3 more players, we will have a total of 5 players (which at this point could very much be the case). 15 make up a team correct? What are the chances we have open tryouts? Now, im not saying bring in 200 guys on campus and let them go at it, but maybe select about 30 or 40 guys to tryout for pretty much 10 spots. Call me crazy, but if we cant get juco players to come in here and have practically a guaranteed starting spot, then thats when you know the program is in the dumps. Think about the feel good story it could bring if it worked out, we would get a ton of exposure i guess right?

    Nope, the program is in good shape. In fact, we have the more locker room square footage per player than any other program in the country! Each player actually gets 3 lockers!

    Many teams have had several walk-ons. Bryan Peterson and Sean Haluska helped out. Brock Jacobson. Time to put put the help/held wanted signs.

    Serious question - if we lose no more players and Harrison Barnes realizes he DOES want to play at ISU but only for GMac and we end up winning only 15 games next year - does GMac still suck?
