    I was just reviewing the 247's final 2019 recruit rankings and I found it interesting that Wheeler checked in at #160 while Tre Jackson checked in at #175.
    https://247sports.com/Season/2019-Basketball/RecruitRankings/?InstitutionGroup=HighSchool

    In 247 evaluation they are essentially going to impact next years team the same. I actually would argue Tre is more likely to help next years team with his ability to be a better volume scorer. Wheeler is a classic past first PG and Haliburton already has that skill set in spades.

    This isn't to say landing Wheeler wouldn't have been nice and he'd have helped the program moving forward but there is no reason to panic and now declare this off season a failure, especially the first week in May.

    I think we were very talented on an individual basis. We just weren't a cohesive unit, as some players were there to showcase that talent more than anything else.

    I'm actually right more often than not. Like the time in mid February when I said Texas and TCU were NIT teams. I even had a bunch of people wanting to place bets with me about it.

    I think you are confusing being triggered by my posts and not knowing what I'm talking about.

    Just having a little fun. Maybe I stretched the irony in your post a little bit.

    "Whenever somebody starts accusing somebody of having "alts," I always...
    Assume the accuser themselves has, in fact, alts."​

    You yourself are accusing people of having alts (by assumption).

    This guy actually messaged me to tell me I was wrong about Grill being a Top 150 recruit.

    More importantly, an Iowa/KSU fan masquerading as an ISU fan. None of his posts are in good faith.

    In mid February I said Texas Tech would play for the National title and that Auburn would make the Final Four. I even had a bunch of people wanting to place bets with me about it.

    Comrade Stalin keeps lists.

    You do not want to be on one of Comrade Stalin's lists.

    They make it too easy. I swear most of these people have the emotional stability of an 8 year old when things don't go our way; I just had to poke the bear a little:D
