I wouldn't exactly call it false. Lee asked to transfer. Adam pursuing academics.(with a nudge) Cole out. And, Harry did contemplate transfering when he was going to have to revert to his 21st Century scholarship. That changed around real quick when he wasn't going for it. I know you guys don't want to hear it but every thing hasn't been all rosey in the BBall office.

On the Harry side. He is a great kid. A total asset to ISU and I don't mean just on the court.

No one is saying things are rosy, but that is D1 athletics. Players consider transfers all the time. The key word being consider. I think with the signing of transfer Crawford, plus Reed, and the incoming freshman, you will see more of Mckenna's true style shown on the floor next year. Can't wait.

Further evidence that ISU is not the only school with a new coach adjusting his roster to fit his style.

It sounds like you have some inside knowledge of the basketball office. I sure hope you are not betraying anyones confidence. Read my earlier post about Lickliter at Iowa doing some roster re-tooling. His kid was All Big Ten, all beit 3rd team.

One thing that makes the Iowa situation a tad different is that Freeman was asked to accept a different role on the team, and apparently his ego wouldn't allow him to do it. He was told unless he began to play the way the offense was designed he would see less minutes until it was corrected.

That sounds exactly like Cole's situation here. However you want to word it, both situations were simply an example of a coach not feeling a certain player fit his style. I am certain both were given ample opportunities to prove they could play with the new systems.
