    Somewhere in the U.S.
    ISU is apparently doing a new video series of "I Play for Iowa State". I'm not sure how many of these there will be, or which sports, but here is the first:

    Very cool. I really hope they do one for each player on the team.

    That's a very deep quote. Loved the ending. The video production crew at ISU is top notch.

    That was awesome. He's a special kid, I can't begin to fathom what he's been through to get to this point.

    Very cool, I love having Edozie on this team. He knows his place and the court and does his job at 110%. However, I thought Mr. Ejim was the Nigerian nightmare!!

    That's awesome. I really like his jacket I am sure it's one just the team gets and you can't buy at a store but has anyone seen it for purchase?

    Edozie seems like the kind of guy you just wanna sit around and hang out with and talk about the world and life. I think his career is just beginning. He is going to have a big impact on some games this year yet I just feel it with him. Defense, blocks, dunks...He's a raw talent and it's too bad he doesn't have 3 more years.

    Christian Okoye was the original Nigerian Nightmare, I think.

    Did not know Mr Edozie's story. Seems like he could have gone down a much different path, but was pointed right and chose to stay true. Strength.

    Do we have anyone that you just don't root like hell for, both on the court and in life?

    Awesome story. It's always great to see someone overcome life struggles to achieve great things in life.

    Not to derail, but any chance someone can link the Niang one for those of us on cell phones?

    Edozie seems like a really cool guy, he was fun to listen to on his KXNO interview the day after his big block against BYU.
