  1. Mayor can wait: Don’t expect any Iowa State men’s basketball games soon against Fred Hoiberg-coached Nebraska. Asked by a young fan in the crowd if that was a possibility, director of athletics Jamie Pollard suggested that the only possibility might be in the NCAA tourney, quickly pointing out, “That’s one thing Nebraska hasn’t been to ever. They’ve got a little work to do before we might be seeing them on the court.’’ It should be clarified, Nebraska has in fact been to the NCAA Tournament seven times, although they have not won a game in the NCAA Tournament. ^^That's how a real reporter could have handled that mess of a lie.
  2. 1000X this. On that note, this is why I don't think him returning makes us this like instant Sweet 16 team. People seem to think we are an NIT team at best without him and a sure-fire tournament team with him. He might make us a few wins better but let's be real, he was not even All-Big Ten Honorable Mention, as a junior.
  3. Speaking of roster turnover, Penny has signed 14 players now in the last 2 classes.
  4. To be fair I'm not singling out Memphis. I believe almost all the top programs cheat. I mean the FBI has all but confirmed that in recent months. Nobody cares though, so they'll continue to do it and get away with it.
  5. yeah, I see that now. I guess that helps having the No. 1 player in your hometown and also signing 7 guys.
  6. With so many versatile, positionless players, the options are endless. Could be a lineup as small as: Mack 6-2 Green 6-3 Burke 6-4 Cheatham 6-6 Stevenson 6-6 Could be a lineup as tall as: Green 6-3 Stevenson 6-6 Cheatham 6-6 Kavas 6-8 Ouedraogo 6-9
  7. Penny Hardaway's name about to become Dollar Hardaway I'm sure Memphis has the nation's No. 1 recruiting class completely legally and without any shady stuff going on. I know Memphis is the dream program to play for right now.
  8. 43 days (dated May 16) since the Creighton message board's "I hate UNL" thread has had a legitimate post hating on us. The 140 page, 1,390 replied thread has been dead silent since early April, for whatever reason. Can't think of one. Carry on.
  9. No doubt that Tim brought in some very good players. I actually think his biggest strength was getting better players to come here than previous coaches did. But yes like you said, in just 1 month Hoiberg has brought in players as good or better than Miles was doing with 5-6 years of recruiting and establishing relationships. That was my point. We just signed Ohio's Mr. Basketball on the last day of the high school signing period with like three weeks of communication with the kid. It's incredible.
  10. Actually if you want to compare Tim's first class from when he was hired in March to Hoiberg's, his first class was actually Sergej Vucetic (bust), Deverll Biggs (bust), Walter Pitchford (solid contributor) and Terran Petteway (sat out his first year before becoming a real player, but no one expected what we got out of him when we signed him).
  11. Maybe because Miles, after 6 years, would bring in players like Thor and Amir Harris this time of year, while Hoiberg and Abdelmassih, with 1 month to work, have brought in: A guy who was a 4 star on ESPN and previously committed to Xavier and Cincinnati A guy who was just a backup PF to Grant Williams and Admiral Schofield on a team that was a Top 10 team all last year A 17 year old French kid whom NBA insiders are tweeting about
  12. Now THIS is a poll with fantastic options. No wrong answer here
  13. You’re right, and the dude has an NBA body at 17 and his ceiling is sky high. At the very least he will play a lot.
  14. Samari Curtis will play, in my opinion. We have 11 eligible scholarship players and it wouldn't surprise me if any of the 11 were regulars in the rotation. There will be some stiff competition for playing time. I don't necessarily think they will rush into starting Ouedroago (dude was just recently 16 years old) or Cross just because. I think they'll go small ball with Stevenson as a big bodied guy who can handle business down low for a bit. 1 Cam Mack 2 Jervay Green 3 Haanif Cheatham 4 Shamiel Stevenson 5 Matej Kavas --- Dachon Burke Yvan Ouedraogo Samari Curtis Kevin Cross Thor Thorbjarnarson Akol Arop Charlie Easley Jace Piatkowski Sit Out: Derrick Walker, Delano Banton
  15. That's it guys! We are done. We made it. We are at 14 right now. We'll be dropping either Roby or Thor and we'll be at 13. Amazing. Take a deep breath.
