    HUGE "what if" scenario....

    What would have happened IF....

    1. Craig Brackins stayed around for his senior year.

    2. Harrison Barnes committed to ISU.

    3. Gilstrap was given another year by the NCAA.

    and....

    4. Royce White was allowed to play this year.

    Seriously... would we be talking possible NCAA Championship right now for this year?

    Starting lineup would be....

    G- DG or DeMarcus Phillips
    G- Harrison Barnes
    F- Gilstrap
    F- Royce White
    F- Brackins

    I'd like to match that up with anyone.

    I know it would have never happened... but it sure is fun to dream!

    Coached by GMac would be the problem most likely.

    If those guys were still here with Barnes added in, old whatshisname would still be here and THEN they'd transfer.

    Problem is Gmac wouldn't have given up and went back to the mid majors. He would have screwed up that fantasy quick just like everything else he did at ISU.

    this thread makes me wanna cry. Can we please stop doing this to ourselves? In all honesty....had JP taken that chance on FH like he originally threw the notion around but being new he didnt wanna do that.....we are starting to see what our program would be like. I like our future for cyclone basketball and think FH will take us to new levels consistantly that we really havent been to

    He would have given them a 150 page playbook and told them to slow it down. And they would have been so bogged down by all the plays in their heads that they would all look lost out there. Sound familiar?

    Wes Johnson played two years at ISU. Sat out one and played one at Syracuse. Had he not left he would have just finished his senior year of ball. NO Way would Wes Johnson have redshirted a year had he stayed at ISU.
