WBB needs to have its scholly amount lowered.
    Completely agree with this sentiment. Why they can't get by with the 12 of the men evades me. If anything, modern D-1 basketball (both M and W) use rotations maybe 7-8 deep, and you're always going to need a few extra spots for "developmental" players for practice or depth in case of injuries. So 10-12 is obviously plenty in my eyes for either gender.

    I suppose the "net 3" from basketball in Title IX terms helps "balance" from football, though.

    That is the entire reason WBB has 3 more scholarships than MBB.

    When TG was a sophomore in HS, I heard from a reputable source that she was 90% going to ISU. Then it dropped to 50/50 a year later. I am sure the reason for the decline of interest was that she was hearing what it is like in the lockerroom, and a late night phone call sealed the decision.

    Let's not even get into the guessing game of what happened a few years ago. It was hashed to death on this board and there were few if any here that had any real/accurate insight to what was happening.

    Maybe late night phone call from Tara, since Stanford is two hours behind Iowa.

    As I've pointed out before, Kelsey Bolte, Alison Lacy, Chelsea Poppens, and now Hallie seemed to do pretty well staying in-state.
