    He could've requested that it be deleted but either way, I'm guessing he was glad to see it gone.

    Iowa Beat Writers

    He got caught making some potentially libelous claims about UI football recruit "financing", and then mentioned something about talking to his lawyer and deleting his account, and then deleted the incriminating thread he started (but none of the other ones) and we haven't heard from him since...

    Down goes Iowa

    I don't know, it's much closer than I would've guessed. Lop off the first two years of both of their tenures (cuz inherited programs) and their regular season performances are very similar. Post-season is a different story tho as you say. Post-season Fran is basically incompetent.

    Huggins commentary video links

    You just need to feed Huggy a few fingers of bourbon before you start and it's a whole different outcome.

    Favorite/best single-scene movie performance of all time?

    Doesn't quite fit the definition of a cameo but definitely the best acting job Tom Cruise ever did...

    Who are these teams excited to go to a sub-par PAC12? ISU?

    In Memoriam: Ames Business/Restaurants

    The Broiler was a great high-end date restaurant. Ames still doesn't have a replacement for it. A little off topic but OG Le's Vietnamese was great. Less great (IMO) since the Le family sold it...

    RIP Sidney Poitier

    My only knock on it was its portrayal of encryption -- suggesting there is a "master key" that decodes all encryption (granted, such a thing is on NSA's wish list...). As a computer programmer type, that kinda broke my suspension of disbelief. Everything else about it was pretty good tho.

    An aside on Kunc's taking one in the chops, I noticed #3 from TT later hopped off the bench during a stoppage and shook Kunc's hand by way of apology which I thought was pretty classy. He certainly didn't need to do that.

    *** Official #25 Texas Tech vs #11 IOWA STATE Game(Day) Thread ***

    Looks like a pretty straightforward pass/layup to me: I dunno maybe it got knocked out of his hands by the off-balance defender but it didn't really look like it. These guys just have bewilderingly bad ball security at times. Outside of TH, I had very little faith in any of them dribbling...

    *** Official #25 Texas Tech vs #11 IOWA STATE Game(Day) Thread ***

    I still don't know what happened towards the end of the game when GK received the ball while cutting to the basket for what should've been a wide open layup but instead somehow flings the ball at the shot clock out of bounds. It was getting comical at that point.

    Watching the 63yo gymnast do a handstand 20ft in the air balanced on a tower of chairs at halftime was the least stress-inducing part of the entire night.
