    In Fred's case, it certainly isn't going to help with high school recruiting. I'm not sure that it matters/he cares too much, but it's not a great look and it can (and will) be used against him in recruiting.

    And it was kind of ****** of him. It’s business and it’s not the worst thing ever, but I’m not sad he’s taking a tiny bit of heat for it.

    I think that situation was almost worse

    Doesn't the NCAA take into consideration if there is a coaching change? I thought some players in the past were granted a waiver because a change in the coaching staff created these exact situations.

    He was signed (signed, not just committed). We needed space for Kane. We told him to get lost. He ended up at Oregon in a pretty good situation.

    That is a bit different. Armadi wasn't here yet and well, he did punch his coach and give him a concussion, accidentally but still.

    He didn’t jump on social media. It happened on Wednesday and was reported on Thursday in the World Herald

    Appears to be a nice kid from Nebraska

    That was a pretty bad situation on our end but at least we told Richard to leave instead of Edozie because we knew Richard would be able to land somewhere good

    To be fair, Fred probably forgot some basketball players actually take finals.

    In another curve ball, Elgin Cook went there at the same time.

    That's one way of wording it. Fred did ask him to transfer, but he helped Amardi find his landing spot. Pretty sure Richard even thanked him on twitter afterwards.

    It’s fine but it’s silly to pretend we wouldn’t have killed Iowa for doing the same thing.

    Fred’s fairly shady. I liked it when he was here. I hope it bites him in the ass now ;)

    We most certainly would have killed them for it.

    Coaches have to make a lot of tough decisions and have a lot of tough conversations. Makes me laugh when posters say they would take the job for a fraction of the salary.

    I can feed the Fred is an ******* narrative: When he got to ISU, he kicked a kid off of the team before he even got moved into the Head Coach's office.

    Yeah, there is a little more to the story...
