    The last time this guy was sober, the Hawks were in their early 80s heyday!

    Ah thought Darius was a 4 star.
    Well then I will add Cameron Lard as an incoming 4-star RS Fresh then. http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/college/iowa-state/basketball-mens/2017/01/19/cameron-lard-fine-not-playing/96791364/

    Either way, 3 4-stars will be joining the team next fall and 4 more unknown players.

    To say Iowa's roster is much better than ISU's going forward is ignorant.

    Well to start with, ISU has 4 rides open to fill. At this point Iowa's roster is better.

    Because they had **** for talent and had to play mostly freshman in year 7. They can only get better from here!

    When I went to look to see how many years Alford coached, I saw iowa was kicked out of the big ten once. I definitely say that's doing things right.

    Using 247 ratings of 2017 rosters including current 2017 recruits. Excluded anyone without a rating the rosters break down like this, also excluded any transfers out.

    Iowa
    PG Avg Rating 0.8399 # 1
    SG Avg Rating 0..835633 # 3
    SF Avg Rating 0.888 # 2
    PF Avg Rating 0.849833 #6
    C Avg Rating 0.9258 # 1
    Overall Avg Rating 0.857508 Total roster 13

    ISU
    PG Avg Rating 0.9165 #2
    SG Avg Rating 0.87067 #3
    SF Avg Rating 0.9291 #1
    PF Avg Rating 0.8795 #3
    Overal Avg Rating .893089 Total roster 9

    I think I would prefer to be in ISU's position, with a more talented smaller roster. The ability to add talent now, or get some for the future. Iowa's roster will only get better by their growth. ISUs has the ability to get better by adding players.

    Also of note, Iowa will have no senior that is worth a **** next year. ISU has Donovan Jackson.

    Other notes, Young was a 0.8648 rating, he has already proven he can play at the B12 level. I don't know Iowa's roster well enough to know if guys are playing above their rating. Would guess a couple did since they approached getting to the Tourney with 6 freshman on the roster.

    The 1900s were a bummer time for ISU. Remember your last football conference title in 1912?
