    Both. He wasn’t good enough to get much time on a bad team.

    Yes, I'm sure you and everyone thought that when he committed considering he was a 4-star recruit whom Kansas also wanted.

    It’s a tough loss but dudes jumper hasn’t been right since he showed up. Half his shots have been flat and haven’t had a chance.

    I think I’ll take Randy’s side on this one actually.

    Zion would be a great athlete for the MVC.

    Irrelevant what we thought when we landed him.

    I don't know what I was thinking.
    I'll blame @ChrisMWilliams for defending him way back when. I'm sure it's his fault.

    Best of luck to him, hope he does well at his next stop. But have you ever seen a flatter 3 point shot?

    I don't think Zion's lack of development is on Prohm. Prohm spoke openly about his perceived ability, gave him all the confidence in the world. He was given plenty of playing time early to show out. He either didn't listen or couldn't connect the dots for himself. It's unfortunate it didn't work out, you always hate to see a young guy leave the program, especially one that came in with a little bit of clout. I wish him well at his next stop, but I do not think this makes ISU worse next season. Use the scholarship on someone who can contribute immediately and in a big way.

    Did you watch him play? He's going to be a junior and his outside shot was as bad as most people shooting for a mower. He needed to be a banger or go play D2. Sometimes recruits just don't pan out... regardless of stars.

    I can't think of another coach that's had over half of the kids he recruited transfer out prior to their jr year.

    Hey a guy won a mower at the last game. Should probably check if he has any eligibility left.

    I think Coach Prohm was trying to speak it into existence, as sort of a challenge and encouragement to Zion to step up and be that critical piece that we needed him to be. I suppose that can backfire sometimes too, but a lot of coaches do that.

    Speaking of bad shooting technique... is this a thing under CSP?

    Nixon's form was completely inconsistent, it was never the same stroke twice in a row.
    Zion had the worlds flattest shot, like an attempted dunk from 20ft.
    Hali has that slow mo, almost push shot from the hip.

    It's like the polar opposite of Monte, Naz and Matty Ice. Did they lose a critical asst coach who was a great shooting technique guy? Is it just not a point of emphasis anymore? Does the current staff take for granted everyone will be a gym rat like Matt & Naz & Monte, and they just aren't?

    I think the last time I saw a great shot technique was D-Jax. Am I off base here?
