    I have a wierd feeling that someone like Colvin or Dendy could be gone at the end of the season.

    Yeah the poll results so far agree with my perception of things. I hope Dende and Colvin both stick around. If McDermott stays I think they will too, don't really know why. If he goes, all bets are off.

    I dont think Dendy will be gone, since he will be a senior. Colvin i HOPE stays around.

    Dendy doesn't seem like he is totally commiited to getting an education and at times not even committed to playing basketball.. But seriously, I'm guessing that if another scholarship opens up, and it goes to a guard, Buckley will be the one leaving.

    You know who I want to watch develop in the Cardinal & Gold? Mr. Hamilton. I think he's got a lot of potential in the coming years.

    If we play well again Wednesday, I'm not sure I want to see Dendy in a Cyclone uniform again. We've played much more solid basketball without him the last 2 games.

    Optimistically, they both come back. It's certaintly possible. However, my money says Strap comes back and Brackins is gone. As long as the NCAA doesn't **** us (definite possibility), that's what I see happening.

    I bet GM is hoping several players leave. The more the number of players that leave, the more some fans and JP seem to excuse Greg McDermott and losing.
    Players leaving is not the fault of GM, after all.

    Isn't it amazing how McDermott is one of the highest paid people in the entire state of Iowa yet his "job responsibility" doesn't include keeping his players around??? At least that is what a majority of the people on here think because he "just has bad luck" or "the players want a better opportunity to play." If it isn't McDermott's job, who's job is it??? The guy can't coach athletes---thats why I've hated this hire since day 1!!!

    I don't really know why but I have a feeling next year Brackins is still in Ames but Strap isn't. Again, just completely my gut instinct.

    Before anyone worries about Dendy coming back or not, is he even back yet now? Just sayin'.

    For next year though, who really is there to defect? DG is not going. SC is not likely to transfer again, since it would have to be to a Division II school or lose a year, right? Buckley, JVB with medical, and Boozer will all be seniors. Dorr and Palo are walk-ons. Doubtful that Oliver would transfer yet.

    About the only one that is a possibility (other than Dendy not coming back at all) would be Colvin, and quite honestly, I could see him doing it. There is a juco guard coming in. DG is still the starting Point unless Phillips takes his place. The whole run-in and suspension after the Duke game. Who knows what is really going on in his head? I could see him going elsewhere.

    I don't see either MG or CB coming back, unless they really fall off the radar completely with the draft. That may still happen.

    You're right.....my bad......I was thinking about Boozer I guess.......well, then, with the limited playing time he gets, I would say DB is a possibility of leaving too. Although I think if Colvin goes first, then DB might stay.
