I do not think this commitment has been announced to the local press by the athlete, his parents or the Vincennes coaching staff so I wonder if it is valid. Anyone know?

I haven't heard anything on that either. But if true I would be happy and I've never seen him play! I just like that we actually have a VU kid! There is a lot of talent that comes out of there and this could be the start of something nice.....if true!

I've not heard about this. I heard that Zvonko Buljan was interested in ISU. He would be a great get.

Yeah, I heard about Buljan a while back. I've seen him play, he is tough. It would be awesome if we could get him as well. We would obviously need people to leave the program. Unless McKenna is planning on redshirting every year. This would be awesome if we got Buljan (6'9").

I can certainly think of a couple people that may transfer. I'm not going to mention names because that is not fair to the athlete. However, they are both sophomores (in-school).

I think I have heard some mention of one of them. I was hoping not as I think he is still a good player for us.

I think that it was very smart to go get an experienced point gaurd. I think that Harry Marshall is a lot better at the two gaurd, but it was looking like he was going to have to take over the PG spot, along with Lamar. Acquiring Rashad Reed and Tyler Cutter, will allow Harry to stay at the two gaurd. Lamar Lee may be better at the two gaurd as well. This move makes a lot of sense the more I look at it.

Rashad Reed is shown to be a 83% FT shooter and a 40% 3-point shooter. I like this!

These are strictly opinions, so let's make sure we do not start rumors that are untrue at this point.

I'm just expressing my ideas. Let's not mention names. If we do that, we will quickly turn into MSU fans.

With the way our existing players are learning, this years fresmen, and the future recruits, it looks as if McKenna is going to get his Creighton style game going.

So true! I never mention the names.

do you two think McKenna would consider redshirting Jay Tunnell at all?? Just think how good ISU would be in 2 years if Jay had an extra year?
