We'll need to get a lot more athletic to compete with MO. Our conference just keeps getting harder and harder.
I think Greg now understands this and I suspect pretty much all new ISU recruits will be athletically talented with maybe 1 on average a year that may be just a shooter. At least I hope so.
Athletic talent isn't the first thing that Anderson looks for in a player. He will take a guy who is strong, physical and determined over an athletic player every time. He inherited Lyons who was one of the most talented players on Mizzou's roster but not an Anderson kind of guy and that's why Lyons was often riding the pine during his time under Anderson.
More than athleticism, I want to see McD recruit guys who aren't afraid to stick their nose into a pile full of elbows and knees.
