    Something up at OU?

    Apparently these players are all transfering and there is a rumor that the parents of some of these players are ****** off about something.

    Brandon Williams
    Max Stevenson
    Josh Aladenoye
    James Haynes
    Jermie Calhoun
    Jonathan Miller

    Would have been nice to have any one of these guys minus Miller

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Something up at OU?

    Here's an OU parent's quote floating around:

    Folks, you may not like some of the things you are about to hear but they have to be said. I have a son leaving this program and have many mixed emotions. It has been a tough road and there have been mistakes on both sides of the equation. I will say that from my experience on the inside of the program that there are serious problems in this program. Please don’t attack me as an OU hater because I have a great respect for this program. The (morale) that I have witnessed is one of the lowest that I have seen in a program. This program is seeing an exodus because the people in charge of this program have forgotten that they have to be able to inspire those around them. The truly great coaches and programs have this ability and it pays great dividends. Yes, the players have a responsibility, but it still requires inspiration. As far as my son goes, I had never seen him have any problems until he arived at OU. It is a tough amd new environment but something went really wrong and unfortunately we may never know what it was. For those that will disagree, the proof will be in the pudding. It always plays out in the end. We wish you the best of luck and hopefully this program can return to the program that we thought it was. P.S. Some of your coaches are not who you think they are."


    And a former OU CB - Marcus Trice

    With the **** I've been hearing. I'm Blessed and Thankful God told me to leave OU when he did. Doesn't surprise me though. All about the $

    You could go to probably any sports program in the country at any level and have a parent that thinks exactly that about their sonwhocandonowrong's coach


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Basically, the same posts we see when a player transfers.

    I agree. I was just quoting where the base of the rumor about parents was coming from.

    One peek at the Capello's posts and we know this is not true. One more reason they and our coaches are awesome.

    Yea, but it's kind of weird to see that many kids leaving at the same time, isn't it? Before a bowl game too.

    Does this mean the smart money is on Iowa to win the Insight?

    Yep, and then for the 20th consecutive year they'll be the sleeper to win the Big 10 and the NC, of which they'll actually do neither.
