Re: D. Buck on the Michigan Dream Team
Actually, I think what is "unfortunate" is all of the excessive hype over these kids coming in...before they even set foot on campus.

I have made it a point to not comment about incoming recruits because it is such a "crap shoot" for the most part...especially at ISU where we tend to not get many McDonald's AAs or Parade AAs. I decided to go against my own preference for not commenting on incoming recruits with the Eikmeier kid because I was incredulous over the amount and intensity of the hype he was getting. Frankly, I was just trying to put a modicum of sanity and realism into the discussion. For that I have been branded by most as public enemy number one...go figure!
I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
