I skimmed through that article, but I find it interesting that he did not menion Railey or Palo. I think Palo has a chance to play as many minutes as Sledge this year, especially early in the year.
I think everyone will play a lot in nonconference, and then we will go to a 10 man lineup to speed up the game.
I think that if Bubu plays a lot this year it will be a very good sign - it means we're ****-pounding everybody.
Everyone is in love with Sledge because hs speed and quickness. I have only watched him twice, but both times he was sub-par to Palo in my opinion. The one time I watched him play against Palo. Defenders right now can lay off him 8 feet and help in the post, he is not an outside threat and I wasn't all that impressed with his passing and transition game. Let's not forget how quick Palo is - is the 2nd quickest guy on this basketball team. Don't get me wrong, I think Tavon has a huge upside, and has some times before the season rolls around, but I think right now Palo is a better all-around guard.
Platoons!!! Grinnell style! 175 points per game!
I hope for ISU's sake Palo's playing days are over. We have gotten way to used to seeing walk ons play.
...We were doing so well - it had been so long since we had a good Bubu rip session.
I also thought is was note worthy that Gibson was mentioned over Railey. Not overly surprised, but interesting to hear so soon. I'm sure it'll take a while for Railey to get totally out of the dog house after the issues the past year - I hope he does though.
I wouldn't read too much into who was mentioned where guys. I caught Coach on the phone as he was traveling. It was a really quick interview.
