    Really, really excited

    Forget about Uthoff. Is it OK to be excited not for the upcoming year but the one after that?

    2011-12 Starting Lineup

    PG: Bubu 6-1 RS SO
    SG: Babb 6-5 RS JR
    SF: Ejim 6-6 SO
    PF: White 6-8 RS FR
    PF: Booker 6-8 RS JR

    ISU has never put such talent on the same floor at the same time. Freddy says he wants to play up tempo and with the athleticism of the above lineup I can see > 80 pts per game and a definite NCAA run.

    Oh, and off the bench: guards DP and SC - both seniors, frontcourt players in Railey, McKnight, Godfrey. And this doesn't even consider incoming freshman.

    Re: Really, really excited

    We're going to start a walk-on at the point?

    It's better than any talent we've ever put on the floor?

    Really??? Iowa State has never put so much talent on the floor at the same time?? We have never even seen any of these guys play. Tinsley, Fizer, Horton, Shirley, Nurse, and Rancik would probably disagree.

    Re: Really, really excited

    I want to see Bubu play in a game before I set him as the starter point guard for next year.

    Exactly - I would say the two big 12 championship teams had pretty decent talent, the Hoiberg Team was talented, every team that has been to the tournament has been talented..even this past years team was talented considering a first rounder and at least one other that will play some level of pro ball...love the enthusiasm, but lets see some results before we get too carried away...also discounting Utoff is really unnecessary - we wanted him, we didn't get him and so it goes.

    Babb is going to be a stud. Can flat out shoot it.

    RW will be a Sophmore whether he plays this year or not and SC is going to be tough to unseed from the 2-guard.

    Re: Really, really excited

    That lineup looks nowhere near the lineup I think we'll see in 2011. No way Bubu starts at PG and I also don't think Babb will start as well, DP will be the starting SG.

    Re: Really, really excited

    There is no way Scottie is not starting...he looked great this summer and I wouldn't be surprised by a big season from him this year if he is healthy...then he would definitely be starting his senior year

    Thats a poor starting lineup. I love the potential of Bubu and Booker, but one is a walk on and the other averaged a few ppg last year in the MVC.

    Re: Really, really excited

    I'm really excited about that lineup too. Although, no offense to Bubu, that lineup is one above average point guard away from being very scary.

    Re: Really, really excited

    count me as one person who won't be offended if we start a walk-on. If he's the most deserving, he should play.

    some people get so hung up on the term "walk-on"

    Exactly. If he is actually one of the top 3-4 PGs in the Big 12 that would be awesome. How many walk ons are? I think thats the point being made.

    There is being 'solid, or average' and then there is scary good. Teams led by walk on PGs are rarely scary.
