I'm excited for the season to start tomorrow....I think.

Hopefully the conversation is about basketball....these threads remind me of how the 'NBA' thread is basically just about players' drama and contract deals and rarely about the game.

Edozie wasn’t a miss. He was a situational role player and he helped us win some important games. He knew his role and did what was asked. Misses would be Halice Cooke, Anthony Booker, Buford, the USC kid etc. and yeah sometimes when playing time looks tough or when players leave late like last year we take some stretches and then suddenly the next class is more promising and those stretches disappear. To say Prohm Can’t recruit is crazy. He has brought mor NBA talent to Iowa State our of HS than any coach ever.
Booker was no more of a miss than Edozie. Cooke was on the Edozie path, but not worth the redshirt imo

Anderson was a guy that was going to be recruited over. That doesn't mean with work he couldn't of earn his time. Guessing seeing Griffin elevate his game may have been a big factor.

Leech was a year or so away and Prohm planned accordingly. Really hope he finds a good fit. In time he could be special.

From memory: ace 3pt shooter KJ Bluford left at semester, Jameel transferred in BUT had to “pay his own way” (I have no knowledge but am guessing many a scholarship was uncovered) for a semester because Bluford counted against the limit for the whole year.
Burton also transferred in at semester.

In this day and age of no one taking a redshirt, Leech seemed like a kid that would benefit greatly from taking a freshman redshirt season. Coming off of a tough injury like that it would have done him some good.

I haven't read through all the posts on this yet but the timing of this seems positive with XF coming to the game tomorrow night. Was there already a scholly available for him?

This is true in basketball, school, work, and life generally --

You are earning your spot again every day. You are always being recruited over.

We just went from "full" (with no changes, including Haliburton returning again) to two open.

this opens up 2 scholarships that many were expecting us to over recruit for. We were at Zero open this morning. Have to think that is a positive sign for us.

Talent wise maybe but attitude wise if you know your role and own it you are an asset if you don’t you can be a cancer. I agree at times booker did both and all in all he was a positive and helped the team when we needed it.

Wait this is actually a good post. What's going on here?
Yeah, well....don't be fooled. If two very good recruits come in, just wait until we lose a game at home. This will only bolster his "can recruit....but can't coach" narrative.

Booker contributed more than Edozie. If he’s a miss, Edozie was. Their attitudes weren’t that far off, either.

I recall zero issues with Edozie's attitude. I agree on their contribution being comparable if not leaning in Booker's favor.
The detriment of Booker’s attitude “issues” in comparison to Edozie were over-blown by the previous poster imo. Naturally, as more of a contributor, Booker’s disappointment was noticeable.
