    Here's John Walters' latest Tweet:


    "Looks like ISU has hired MBB Ast Coach Elwyn McRoy. Most recently at Arkansas State. Great JUCO connections."

    Re: Walters: ISU hires McRoy

    Sounds like he's the guy Fred wanted so I'm sure he's going to be a great addition to the staff. Welcome coach McRoy.

    Hopefully he can get a PG with his JUCO connections.

    Hopefully we get BJ Young and his JUCO connections aren't needed for another year.

    Seriously though, sounds exactly like who we wanted. Wasn't D. Robinson from Arkansas State too? Talk about raiding that program.

    DR was from UALR (University of Arkansas-Little Rock), same conference, just different schools.

    Re: Walters: ISU hires McRoy

    Color me less than excited about an assistant whose #1 tag-line skill is his JuCo connections.

    I'm not a fan of using JuCo players for more than a (very) occasional stop-gap. Even Gilstrap, although he was better than the typical JuCo kid, did very, very little for us as a program.

    Admittedly, I don't know much about McRoy, but at first glance, I think Hoiberg could have done better here.

    I can think of a few JuCo player's that have impacted our program in a very positive way. .. I hope he can bring in one or two talanted players from the JC's every year. Sure he'll recruit qualifiers to. Very Good Hire!

    He may have connections to Tyrus McGee, I've heard. No matter what though, it's nice to see the staff completed. Time to let these guys get to work!

    So you barely know anything about the guy, yet you're about to throw him under the bus? Okay...congratulations on being illogical.

    Successful Iowa State teams always have JC players playing prominent roles. The best years in ISU history featured a backcourt of all JCs... Tinsley, Nurse, and Horton. Many of Floyd and Eustachy's top teams were JC heavy. We will always have the need for a good JC or two at ISU.

    Using Gilstrap as an example is just silly, he did everything he personally could for us as a program, he led the freaking Big 12 in rebounding! He was a stud JC player, and any coach would be happy to add a JC recruit of his caliber to their team. What a terrible example.

    While, I personally tend to "trust the ISU program" on their hires, I can see the point that Kucyclone is making. This is a message board, remember, fans are welcome to voice their opinions and disagree with the majority opinion.
    Also, I actually don't think he was throwing the new coach under the bus or being illogical/irrational. He was stating his opinion. And I, too, hope we don't RELY on JuCo talent. Yet, I know that they definitely can provide some major help at times!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"
