Brutal week for Iowa and they haven't even announced their assistant coach yet which isn't going to go over well

It went from the fan base saying he should quit basketball and stick to baseball to him being the starting point guard in the Big Ten. What an off season

I don't know if was this thread or another but I said the deck's been cleared for the kids and their friends to play a lot.

Yikes. I mean with Garza/Jorbo/Joe, they won't be horrible. As much as I rag on those guys, they can step up at times and play well. However, the overall depth looks alarming for them.

The guys you listed can step up at times offensively but defensively the first two are a giant problem.

2 of those 3 listed are in the bottom 10% in defense in all of CBB

Just an FYI I know I've broke a ton of news lately (Nixon coming back, Moss leaving, Harvey laughing at Iowa and going to a team coming off an 0-18 conference record) but I think I'm tapped out for now. I do know Fant has never been happier to be out of IC but that's about it

We need Fran to do just well enough to keep his job....or at the very least keep earning those under the table raises the athletics department is ashamed to admit.

He could miss a couple tourneys in a row and still be safe just because they can't afford to fire him

Talk about a slide from the last two months. They were a basket away from a sweet 16 and since then they've dropped and dropped as a program.

Any idea what Fran is going to do now with 3 open scholarships after striking out on Harvey and the Hausers?
