    I was just going to say that.
    "Allen especially bonded with Iowa State associate head coach T.J. Otzelberger, his primary recruiter."

    Exciting offseason news just keeps rolling in.

    Even if we're Hoiberg's Halfway House, things look like we're in good shape.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Why did he leave MSU?
