    While we remember things like the toothpick or the drop-kick at WV, I was really amazed at Dustin's growth while at ISU. He was a rebounding machine as a JR, but as a SR really developed the 3 as a weapon, and then who can forget how he stepped up in the tournament when Niang was injured. He simply outworked many others on the court.

    I've read this a number of times now. What/when exactly is the modern Cyclone basketball era? Is there a Cyclone football era?

    I don't know that it's anything official, but I'd say the last 10 years. Let's call it post-gmac.

    I guess it depends on your age. For me it's the rebirth, when Johnny arrived.

    Yeah -- the 2010 and 2011 season is so obviously the start of the modern era.

    Talked with him at the bars a couple times. Easily the most approachable Cyclone I ever ran across.

    I want to forget about the late Larry, Morgan, and McD years.

    I mean, you're certainly entitled to your opinion, and there is technically no correct answer, but... umm..... no.

    I mean, I guess if the timeline starts with maybe, The Mayflower, then sure.

    Just depends what definition of “modern” we’re using. But there’s no arguing Johnny was the major inflection point for the program.

    Hopefully watching film on how Prohm helped tweeners like Nadar and Burton into NBA players.

    You should be able to have unlimited views if you access through his twitter.

    Cliff Notes: Smith - Likely to provide his short list in coming days. He would be shocked if Iowa State is not on it. Sitting really well. Gach - Iowa State and Minnesota likely top two contenders due to proximity to his hometown. Nothing earth shattering. Probably a long shot he would stay in NBA draft.

    Good summary, Bain basically just recapped what we have been talking about about on CF for the past week for their general readership.
    As for Gach, I don't think he'll stay in the NBA draft but there would still be the risk if he doesn't get a waiver Both could go pro in a different league rather than sitting out. Bain should have added that possibility imo.
