    I hope you're right. It's just that he's 7', athletic, and can shoot and handle the ball. He'll have people in his ear just like they were with Tucker. If he were to stay 2 years it's scary to think about how good he would be.

    No ones starting position should be secured going into next season. The last time Prohm tanked it took 4 new starters to turn things around.

    Friend with a guy who refs games in Iowa. He's done several of Foster's games. Says he is a good player but needs toughness and defense is nowhere near where it needs to be. I see him here at least 2 years and that would take major improvement.

    Tell your ref friend that he (ref) may be part of the perceived "lack of toughness" problem.

    For example the calls Bowen Born as a midget guard got vs the lack of calls Xavier Foster as a 7' got were off the charts. Sneeze on Born foul. Look at his FT attempts. Xavier Foster had midgets hanging all over him and if he turned or slightly stuck an arm out foul.

    Basically your friend is an idiot. And you are a bigger idiot referencing your HS ref friend. The reason Argumentum Ad Hominem. You are not some kind of expert because your friend is a ref

    Oh we argue about crappy calls all the time. He has made me far more forgiving of refs. Most of the time, some contact can occur, just as long as it doesn't influence the kids ability to finish his play. Also, he throws so many angles at me that I never even considered the likes of which slip my mind because those intricacies are for a professional.

    It sure as hell does influence how Physical a 7' 225 lb kid can get against a bunch of 6'3 wanna be pussies. You and your ref friend are a problem

    You and your friend are not more knowledgeable about basketball because he is a ref. Take a hike

    Is Foster a legit 7ft? Does anyone know his wing span? Also I couldn’t recall any players at 7ft playing for ISU other than the Greek fellow. Have there been others?

    You are absolutely right. That Kelvin Cato or some such 20 yrs ago would have set the school block record if he wasn't a JC player and he may have played longer in the NBA if he was 7 instead of 6'11.

    Great Point

    Edit just to clarify after IASTATE07 rated it dumb- this post was dripping in sarcasm. It was the epitome of Hyperbole. In this thread that translates to the Epi Tome of Hyper Bowl

    He actually transferred in from south Alabama. He wasn’t eligible until the Wyoming game after 1st semester as a junior.

    I think he had like 18 rebounds in that game.

    Way too many ****** refs across the state don't have a clue what they're doing just know how to phrase the narrative to justify their incompetence. Oh course it affected the player's ability to finish. Not the contact but that fact he's 7 feet tall. Similar contact needs to be called consistantly regardless of the outcome.

    Dudek was 7'1", but I'd go with Cato as well.

    Ok? I simply expressed his opinion. Not sure how you think I'm a problem? Take it or leave it. We're all anonymous on here anointed one.

    Incidental contact occurs all the time. I have no idea the stats or the perceived and possible bias there was against him. I agree about tall and large kids getting treated differently but I'm not sure why you think I'm justifying bad calls? I was merely saying that people like to think they know more than the refs but there is so much more to their job than just knowing the rule book.

    I'm not sure we're talking about the same kind of contact?

    To be clear, I agree that it should be called consistently, that's normally what I am arguing for with him. And I'm not sure why you two think I find myself savy about basketball? I'm amateur, my friend is actually very knowledgeable and wish I could represent him better as I feel I've been missunderstood in here.

    Myles Turner, who went to UT & is now on the Pacers, was on my HS team and we didn’t get out of the 1st round of the playoffs...
