    I was hoping he would go to Drake, but he should do well at UNI

    Happy for him, he’s a really good kid and will have an impact there.

    I will never get it when people say an explosive offensive player that really looked like they like to score and play uptempo basketball is a “great fit” at UNI.

    UNI will have the second best backcourt in the state next year.

    UNI is set up for pretty special years in 20-21 and 21-22.

    Maybe it's just me, but as a alum and a letterwinner I'd rather pay my kids way and have them walkon than go to another in state school on scholly.

    Good for him. I hope he excels there. I loved watching Mike back in the day.

    Nah, makes sense to me. You have a stronger connection to ISU athletics than most of us do.

    As a parent though would you rather see your kid actually play for an in state rival for a high character, successful coach or ride the bench at your alma mater? He’ll play for the panthers, I dont know if he’d ever see meaningful minutes at ISU unless he hit a growth spurt.

    Im not a parent so maybe i don’t offer the best perspective but i think I’d rather see my kid have a successful and meaningful college career even if it meant at a “rival” if they didn’t have the same opportunity at ISU.

    And UNI isn’t even really a rival. They are just “there”. We don’t even play them anymore do we?

    Loyal sons forever true!

    If the issue is you wouldn't get playing time at ISU, there are plenty of other mid major schools in surrounding states, it doesn't have to be UNI.

    I really don't care what Born does, but for me personally screw Iowa and Purple Iowa in all ways always and forever.

    Bowen isn’t an ISU alum. His dad is and that’s great but you’re saying he shouldn’t go to a very successful mid major program where his family can see him play because his dad is an ISU alum?

    I want to clarify i dislike uni and all their pantherhawk fans as much as the next guy but i just don’t think Bowen or Mike did anything wrong choosing to go to uni. Saying he has some loyalty to ISU because his dad played here is stupid.

    I would have advised him to walkon at ISU or accept a scholarship at an out of state school. No consideration to Uni, Drake or Iowa.

    The real over arching thing here for me is that Bowen is an exciting offensive talent that will have that drilled out of him real quick and will just end up as another UNI robot. That’s why I wouldn’t want my kid to play at UNI.
