    John Wilkins has committed to ISU...Illinois St.

    I heard this on Friday but Rivals just posted it to make it semi-official.

    Not a huge loss Cyclone fans, you'll find bigger and better players. Wilkins is a project at best and there is a TON of baggage involved.

    Woohoo..I cursed the Hawks by predicting he would sign for Iowa.

    Patting myself on my own back.

    Re: John Wilkins has committed to ISU...Illinois St.

    says he is signed


    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."

    Did you just surrender to John Wilkins?


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

    Everybody knows Wilkins made a bad choice, but it's not serious?

    Sadly, I did that without a translator. They make us learn french in Canada.

    C'est pas grave = no big deal.

    I've heard the Quebecois are crazy-talkers from my french friends. Is that true? Many of them insist the Quebecois are speaking a completely different language.

    Pretty much true. I grew up in western Canada. we hate the quebecois. they're like the mentally ******** brother whose rent you pay, but they don't appreciate it and take a dump in your laundry basket. separatist jerks.

    I think that is where his father went - Jeff Wilkins ex-NBA Utah Jazz.

    B.C.? Vancouver? Awesome wildlife out there. Likely a great place to grow up.

    Back to the topic: it is too bad we lost Wilkins, but at least we'll have some extra scholarships for FH next year.

    Re: John Wilkins has committed to ISU...Illinois St.

    Thanks for the words. I only came here to break the news...not start a fight.

    I am (obviously) an Indiana guy and as someone who roots for a program in the pits right now, I can safely say that we both dodged a bullet with this one. Every thing I have read and heard says that Wilkins is not cut out to play with the big boys. I would put any reasonable dollar amount on the table to wager that if I came back here in a year, you will look back and see that Wilkins was a 9th-10th man, even on a terrible team like Illinois St.
