    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."

    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.
