Hang the man?s jersey up already | News | Men's Basketball | Cyclone Fanatic
Bring him back next season and retire it. I thought he deserved it before today. Today just sealed it.
Melvin needed a statement game to really put his name at the top of the list for POY in the Big 12.
I've been beating this drum for a while. Melvin is everything I want to see in a Cyclone player.
He really is one of the all time Cyclone greats. Hang #3 up in the rafters!
Ejim is great and probably deserves to have his jersey retired, but isn't this really something that needs to wait a few years? When there is buzz about him long after the fact, then you know you should retire his jersey. I don't think we should even talk about memorializing him until after he finishes his great. Let's just enjoy his success each step of the way.
His stats all season (and last) have earned him a place in the discussion for Big 12 awards...a game like today finally opens more eyes. Hope he can maintain his averages....he needs to he first team big 12....would be amazing if he got POY for big 12 and/or all American status (academic, too).
He'll be an all-american this year. If not, robbery.
Great answer, you have a way with words.
I take issue with this statement, C-Dubs. I'd gladly take a PV-Bettendorf, or *** High-North Scott, showdown and be happy to watch it.
Doesn't he need to graduate before his jersey can be retired?
agree. He better be on those lists come Monday. We know he would if he had a "Kansas" on his uniform.
Fine if people want to wait 5 years, I just can't understand the crowd that doesn't want Melvin's jersey hung. If Melvin can't be up there then nobody can ever again. He's everything that is right with college athletics and Iowa State University. It's a career thing, it's a body of work award, it's about being a complete player, it's about who you are as an institution and as a program. It's not about who was better at one specific point in time. When Fizer was a junior he was a better player than Melvin, yes I agree. But it's more than how many rebounds he had in how many years. Those that say Cain had more rebounds in 3 years, I can't think of a more meaningless stat. Melvin was here 4 years, I think that gives him and edge on Cain if anything. It isn't only about comparing Melvin's numbers to our other greats, where Melvin matches up more than well enough. It's more than that.
Wait 5 years or not, it has to happen.
I don't understand the point of waiting on something so obvious, though.
Who are you arguing against?
Did he dunk over Mihm?
Cain played when all freshmen were ineligible.
That's what the ladies tell me...I wish...
