    LickLiter takes a jab at the hawk fans

    After the Iowa game, I was listening to the after game radio show. During a commercial, I switched over to the hawkeye station to listen to Lick's comments. He made one about wishing the hawk fans would show up for a game the way the clone fans have. He said they have gone into a couple games this year where the environment is loud and difficult, and he would really like to see that in Carver some time. I laughed.

    The last time that hawk fans were loud and boisterous Carver Arena had not even been built...That happened in the OLD DUMP iowa fieldhouse.

    What, isn't the sound of grandma knitting a sweater for junior or grandpa snoring in the 10th row at Carver loud enough? Geez, some coaches are just too needy.

    The more and more I hear about Lickliter, the more I like him. I think he is a stand up guy and honestly feel sorry for him for taking that job.

    He should have stayed at Butler...

    There is a reason he took the Iowa job...1.2 million of them! Wasn't he making in the $200,000 range at Butler? He can take the Iowa job for 5 years and if it doesn't work out then he could easily get a job similar to the Butler job.

    As much as I hate the Hawks...that isn't a bad job to take. The question for him is going to be the same as GMac's...can each of them recruit the types of kids that fit their system and will allow them to be competitive in their leagues? We don't know yet...GMac has done alright so far...but he has a long way to go too! And I am THRILLED that GMac is our coach...but honestly, isn't the jury still out on him?

    Probably felt like he could make a difference. Some coaches like to take programs in shambles and make it into something. It helps pad your resume. I think he will get things turned around, but it will take alot longer than most. If the fans dont buy in, then screw em. That is just poor fandom.

    Living in Cedar Rapids (the middle of Hawkville), I don't know a single Iowa fan who isn't happy that TL is their coach and they understand it was going to take time. They will be there...but the entire Alford debacle is still fresh in their memories. Any coach other that StevieBoy would have made them happy!

    Sounds like you have a few thinking fans over there. Do they go to the games?

    What's their excuse now? Before it was "well I don't support Steve Alford". I'm constantly trying to engage my Hawk coworkers in their basketball team but the standard response I get is "I don't really follow basketball, I'm a football guy".

    Re: LickLiter takes a jab at the hawk fans

    While I'm not a big fan of him so far (his sideline pouting mostly), he's still very early in his Hawkeye career.

    In 3-5 years, he could have this team atop the Big 10 for all we know. I think it will take longer than that - but he's certainly not dead in the water.

    I get that alot too. But I bet if the Hawk BBall team was conference champion with hopes for NCAA championships, they would be all bball.

    None of my friends have season tickets to Iowa games. But they do occassionally attend Iowa games. I know some who took Iowa up on bringing a football ticket stub to enter the MBB games for $10.

    Personally, I feel like the Hawk fans around here are just a years behind most of us Cyclone fans. Many of us were very relieved to have a new system in place last year and to have GMac as our coach. We didn't expect to win the B12 last year but we felt better about our program. I think Iowa fans are in that stage right now...they are realistic in their hopes for the season but they are still happier now than they were last year!
