    Re: Players taking frustration out on Twitter

    I don't respect the people on twitter who called out the players individually... I had a couple of tweets that said things like: "this game is disgusting", "How in the hell did we lose to Tech" and I think that's pretty fair. However I don't respect the athletes to come on and do the same to the fans. It makes the situation all the worse. I would have never known about any of this if they didn't tweet about it. Move on like Georges and Chris Babb did. It was sickening to watch that game last night, but even more sickening to see fan go after athlete and athlete go after fan. Something I never want to see again with this college. We are better than that.

    Re: Players taking frustration out on Twitter

    This whole tread makes me laugh about how silly our society is around social media. Time for people to lose the social hyperactivity and get back to life as it evolves in the world around them and not on the internet. Where people get off on bashing these guys behind the mask of a twitter handle is rediculous.

    Rant over


    Smoke um if you got um

    Maybe it just best if fans dont contact players in twitter, good or bad.

    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

    Absolutely.

    Re: Players taking frustration out on Twitter

    If you want to call out a player and need to say it to their face, I think you'd be pretty safe saying it to Booker. All you need to do is say it and then run. If he moves anything like he does in a game, you should get away pretty easily. I swear his feet are stuck in wet concrete most of the time.
