    If something has happened once in all of time, but that first time was just a week ago, does that mean it happens more frequently?

    Iowans fetish level fascination with mid-major Iowa white boy players is really something. If your Clone boner lasts for more than four hours you should really go to the ER.

    its ******* stupid to assume Zion is a miss. And it’s even stupider to assume born is going to be a hit.

    I’ve seen him play twice. He takes a ton of shots. At one point he lead the state in field goals attempted. Won’t be able to do that in B12 play. Can’t see how he could create his own shot against high major competitors but he could develop into a decent role player.

    There’s a reason he got no high major offers.

    Cyinthenorth, you do realize ISU let McNeill out of his LOI? UNI would have to do the same. Prohm and staff decided he wasn't worth it and let him go. Last I knew Darius transferred after one season on a really poor team at Cal. Letting kids out of LOI's is not very common and most of the time is due to a coaching change. I think his AAU coach got an assistant coaching job at Cal. If UNI blocked Bowen from getting out of his LOI he would have to sit out a year. If UNI thought we had some how tampered with him the NCAA would definately start sniffing around. Lets do all that for a kid that is a reach.

    Not because of Bowen.

    If we were going to talk about sniping a Panther, please give me A.J. Green already.

    He would be a great TH replacement.

    :D

    I want to preface my comment by saying I havent read every page of this thread.

    Look at our class, we have three 4 star players and a 3 star with great size and potential. Who would we trade to get Born? None of them.

    If a player is under 6’ in high major basketball, they must be an assist heavy PG or a once in a decade shooter. Yes, Born is prolific, but he would get lost in the trees of high major basketball.

    I honestly do wish him the best of luck at UNI. I think that’s the perfect fit.

    Hi Bowen, I hear you need bus fare to Ames. Hand him a large envelope of cash and disappear.

    If Born can knock down wide open 3's, then sign him up.

    That Martensdale-St Mary’s vaunted defense isn’t what it used to be.
