    Jarring to Look at Roster and see 6 players

    One of which is walk on (Bubu), one a project (Oliver), and then only Garrett, Vanderbeken, Dendy, and Christopherson.

    Basketball (M) - Roster - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    We are going to need the five newcomers to be the real deal. I can't see anyway the prognosticators won't have us projected for 12th in conference next year based on new coach and who we have back. However, I don't care what they think, and I feel good about where a program is headed. It was just a little jarring to click on roster and see it in black and white.

    Just goes to show how much Gmac decimated our BBall program. Very sad....

    No doubt will be the worst team at ISU in my lifetime.

    I hadn't noticed that at all until you pointed it out.


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

    Re: Jarring to Look at Roster and see 6 players

    It really just shows the damage ol' Greggie boy did to ISU. Not that he took over in a great state or anything, but 4 seasons of losing records, TONS of transfers, and then he leaves us basically as empty of a cupboard as you can have. I know he is suppose to be a "great guy" and all, but he seems to have stuck it to ISU pretty hard.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    I think this is exaggerated, but will see how it plays out.
    I can still see this team with a .500 or game or two better record when all is said and done.

    Correct!

    GMac is a great guy, but was in WAY over his head in the Big 12. Although some things were not his fault, he is still ultimately responsible for whatever happens to his program under his watch.

    There is no way that you can possibly defend where GMac has taken this program. It is completely decimated. And that is why we will be BAD next year. Anyone talking about 15 wins or more next year is sure smoking something really good. I like the newcomers we've got coming in, but they are still newcomers. In a good program, these kids would all be sitting their first year and developing their strength and their games. These guys will not have that luxury.

    every player left is either a Senior or has used their red-shirt.
    Plus one is a walk-on and two are rumored to not be available next season.

    Re: Jarring to Look at Roster and see 6 players

    As bad as it looks, it could be worse. If Gmac would have stayed a couple of the recruits might have bailed and a couple more players may have transferred. On top of that ISU would still have a horrible coach under contract.

    Re: Jarring to Look at Roster and see 6 players

    Funny that you should post that. I almost posted the same thing this morning. I was over looking at the roster and was shocked. Essentially 4 players with experience. 1 walkon and one RS freshman who has been rumored of leaving/having health problems or both.

    We have nowhere to go but up; time for a reboot.

    Re: Jarring to Look at Roster and see 6 players

    Wasn't trying to start a bash GMac thread or anything about that. I know roster has been discussed, but it didn't really hit me until I saw the new roster on cyclones.com

    Next year may be tough, but I am optimistic about the future. I am not thinking 15 wins next season, but I am thinking we will end the season with some excitement for the future.

    Get over it, we have five incoming players. This means nothing.

    Re: Jarring to Look at Roster and see 6 players

    This may be more of an exception rather than the rule, but the 1996 team that finished second in the league, won the tournament title, and made the second round of the NCAAs did not have any experience in the starting line up, they were all new.

    So we only have 6 guys now but there will be 11 available when practice starts (we hope) and 4 of the 5 incoming players looks like really good recruits. Sure they will struggle as they gain experience but I think next year's team will be fun to watch. College basketball is a guard's game and I'm pretty sure they will be better in the guard ct. next year. Yes, even with Colvin gone. I mean think about it. DG will be used differently under FH and will be better anyway with another off season to develop. DP will have the most talent of the guards (this is what Jeff R. said anyway) and SC will be healthy and he should be improved as well. Call me delusional, but I think we will be better than most think.
