    Way too early to say that. Yeah getting beat by double digits at home to an NIT caliber team is concerning but you have to look at the circumstances

    I obviously don't have the depth of knowledge on the cyclone basketball team the rest of you have, but at least I know to start by watching bolton and Conditt.

    Does Bolton play more point or shooting guard? I don't recall much about him when he was at PSU last year. Just because he was on a big 10 roster, doesn't his is a P5 talent. What are your initial perceptions of his strengths and weaknesses so far? What does he need to do for ISU to be successful?

    Bolton is a very talented guard, quick and good “handle”. When Halliburton goes pro he’ll be a really good replacement at pg. unfortunately he’s playing the 2 this year and can’t hit from 3.

    Who does ISU move to the 2 when Haliburton leaves? Assuming Conditt is a stretch 4...? Young expected to be shot blocker and rebounder?

    Do any cyclone die hards take issue or disagree with Dexterhawk? Seems like an objective assessment...

    Hopefully one of Grill and Jackson are consistent enough to start next year. They've both showed flashes, but struggle with consistency (not surprising since they're both true freshmen)

    I'm not suggesting it is going to be a lost season for the cyclones, but who would you project as starting 5 next year?

    1 - Bolton
    2 - Grill or Jackson
    3 -
    4 - Conditt/Foster
    5 - Young

    This is not my speculation. Just a starting point for my own clarification.

    I love your guarantee track record. Didn't you guarantee Iowa wouldn't win in Hilton?

    I'd be interested in seeing a stat of showing how many minutes Iowa has lead in games in Hilton the last 5 trips. They've probably lead for 190 of 200 minutes, and come away with 1 win.

    I still ******* hate Fran.

    The mid major/P5 argument is stupid. ISU is a P5 team. 99% of teams aren’t loaded with 4-5stars at all positions like Duke or Kentucky, including the vast majority of P5 teams
