    Babb is gonna be a good one, mark it down!

    This kid is going to be an impact transfer IMO! I personally LOVE this statement. Per DMRAG, Chris Babb said Wednesday, ďI donít really want to go into why I left Penn State, but Iíll talk a lot about why I chose Iowa State. At Iowa State, I get a chance to play for a coach who knows about the NBA. I canít wait to start working with him.Ē

    Freddie's recruiting is looking pretty good so far folks...............

    Wish more guys would take this route. Don't lie or burn bridges just cross the bridges and look forward. Love it.

    Chris, glad to have you as a Cyclone!

    I don't disagree but internet guarantees make me laugh every single time. "Mark it down..." "I guarantee..." "For the record..." etc. Very funny to me.

    9 pts a game, started 23 of 29 games as a SOPH., 6-5 shooting guard, supposedly lock down defender, very atheletic, highly touted coming out of HS, He's obviously a smart and mature kid. I've never heard a transfer talk about coming in to work with the young guys to teach them the ropes of bigtime D1 ball. A reporter asks him a question about why he left his previous school and he gives you the statement above. It is just my opinion, but ALL things point to him being a huge addition! Is all that funny?

    Yeah, they rank right up there with "period.", "End of story." and "End of thread." As if their opinion is more right than everyone else's.

    Of course I can recognize the opinions that are right; they look just like mine!

    I agree too, but according to many on here the public had a right to know exactly why Justin Hamilton was leaving, and the fact that he essentially lied to protect McD and possibly others was not good enough!!

    We didn't have a right to know necessarily. He was also wrong in lying about it. He should have used the line that Babb did.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Of course we didn't have a right to know. As far as I'm concerned what he did was fine. And people wonder why almost everyone gives vanilla answers to the media anymore.

    I'd put money on his real reason for leaving being "we lost to iowa last year..."

    Fred gets a year to work with the kids shooting, and that's huge. Getting shots off more quickly, better form etc.
