Re: Darrell Brown preseason All-MVC 2nd Team

To be better than the 4th place we were projected for, Childs will need to step in for Donte, meaning he would be likely be around that 2nd team as well.

Re: F*!#

Bar is a deterrent around the rim. Not the flashy kind that flies through the air and pins shots on the backboard, but he uses his length around the rim effectively. Also, for someone his size, he can get out further from the rim and hedge on the ball screens quite well. That’s a big deal because if...

Re: F*!#

I disagree that it would be worse if it was Dlo or Brown for instance.... those guys don’t need the seasoning nearly as much as Ari does. Either one of those guys would be back up to full speed once their conditioning caught up whereas Ari needs D1 game experience prior to Conference season..... Th...

Re: F*!#

The players in the rotation are pretty solid MVC players. However, the roster is looking really thin. This stuff happens. I’m not down for the bad luck talk. Last year was good luck. The guys we are counting on have played together forever in college basketball terms. We have more continuity than an...

Re: Yarbrough

I think you are unfairly painting ISU with a really broad brush here. I also think you are in the minority here—but of course I could be wrong. I think people like to win. And time has shown that winning is what drives money, donations, interest, enrollment, etc. Do teams with mediocre records but ...

Re: Yarbrough

The volume of incidents matter. We’ve had some incidents in the program in the past, some minor, some major. Delicate situations like Egolf. I think you do have to defer to the coach and administration at the school to some degree. But, when you have repeated nonsense, and as SLB notes it appears th...

Re: Wessler out at PJ Star

I’m not near as much into the preps as I once was, but from what I have read Aaron Ferguson is talented and hardworking. Telling that they have someone that energetic covering the local kids, and they value it this little.

Re: NCAA replacing RPI with NET

The RPI is flawed, but it’s the selection committee that keeps the top RPI teams such as MSU and ISU out. There’s some flaws with the by possession analytic site, though I would argue fewer of them, but it’s the selection committee that puts Wichita in the 8/9 game when their Pomeroy was somewhere a...

I purchased the framed jersey that Bradley gave Chet Walker when his number was retired on eBay. Sad that it meant so little to Chet or that he needs money this bad. I know he always had an issue with Bradley so maybe he just didn’t want it in his house. He kept it for 5 years so I wouldn’t think t...

Peppering the recruiting trail with guard offers. Long overdue! Stevens' game looks just like Brown's. I'm a *** for the Dan Ruffin/Will Franklin/Darrell Brown types. Yes yes yes!!! Maybe I'm wrong, but most championship-caliber Valley teams have always had a dynamic guard duo. We haven't been real...
