    We really need Royce to be eligible this year. I really believe if he plays, we can dance.

    In turn, that might get some of these Iowa kids to look ISU's direction.

    Actually when did we have a shot since Fred took over? Never. He was waiting for a Kansas offer this whole time. Trust me I know more about this than you do. Thanks for acting like you know something though.

    Oh, I'll freely admit that I don't know anything about Marcus Paige or his recruiting.

    I'm also sure you don't know anything either.

    I know a kid that plays with him and he is friends with. Told me a long time ago Kansas is where he would go if offered. It's actually pretty common knowledge.

    Yes, but that means we didn't have a shot if Kansas offered. They just offered. We had a chance before that.

    I'd take BJ Young over Marcus Paige hands down.

    Have you seen either one of them play, or are you just self-medicating?

    5* > 4*

    Maybe that's his reasoning? I'd personally be more than thrilled with either.

    I understand that. My question though was whether or not he has seen either one of them play.

    If so, I would like to know why it's a no-brainer, "hands down" thing.

    If there is compelling, first hand evidence to believe Paige is the lesser of the two, I for one would love to hear it.

    I don't understand these kids. Play for an in state school that now has a legend coaching that can get you in the NBA...or....Play for a National powerhouse, that is just powerful enough to get to the NCAA tournament and lose in the 1st or 2nd round ever single year even though they are a top 5 seed every year because all they really are is a bunch of athletic crybaby underachievers.

    I would go with the Legend.

    I'd take Young because he's 2011 instead of 2012. I don't like that he's a risk to qualify.

    But if he hadn't been offered....

    It's common knowledge that 90% of kids that are offered by KU will go to KU. You didn't break any ground here.
