    No worries... I'd just hate to take the shine away from our recruiting win over some ignorant moron hawk fan. I think that's redundant though...

    Oh I'm not trying to take shine away at all. This was a huge win for Iowa State's basketball program in every way you look at it.

    The Iowa guys didn't know either way the whole time even though they thought they finally did yesterday. In fairness, even our best Cyclone sources were in agreement with that yesterday.

    I believe @cytown stayed steady that nothing had changed this weekend but everyone else with sources and a track record seemed to think he was Iowa bound.

    There was someone trying to say that Kansas and UCLA were not in fact blue blood programs and therefore XF was not truly a top tier player lol.

    This is correct. She just violated FERPA.

    When I looked at 247 this morning just minutes after the announcement, there were 7 or 8 total crystal balls, all of which were pointed to Iowa.

    Which made the whole thing even funnier to me.

    This couldn’t have been any worse for Fran. Reaching big time on two recruits to try and get Foster. Even if he got Foster, that was a huge mistake because Foster isn’t that great of a recruit to do that for. Then to lose a huge Iowa fan to ISU and finally he is now stuck with those two unheralded recruits. Just a giant swing and a miss. Hoping that he gets canned soon, but not holding my breath with Barta running the show.

    Yeah, agree 100%. Not sure what Iowa does for this. However, beyond some really good players from the Lute, Raveling and Davis eras (80s-90s), I think the last 15 or so years would be made up of a bunch of white dudes from Iowa/the Midwest who gave up basketball shortly after college graduation and are now working for Morgan Stanley.

    Yeah. And the fact that Monte actually did NOT start right away during his Frosh year (was behind Kane), would also refute the crap that some are spouting.

    He started later on in the year. Fred had said how he couldn't afford to keep Morris on the bench.

    And deep down, it appears that Foster really wanted a reason to go to Iowa. He grew up an Iowa fan and his mom is an Iowa fan. But it turns out that he is a smart kid who knows his future is better at a school that prepares basketball players for their professional career. And he knew that he liked the Iowa State players better than sons of Fran.

    Wieskamp and Garza this year and JBo and Garza next year will hold the ship together enough to prevent a disaster season. These last couple recruiting classes will be felt big time 2 years down the road though. I will say, as much as Iowa fans on this site accused Twins and others of trolling on this subject, there's sure a whole lot of smoke that other players/recruits don't like the McCaffery boys.

    Yeah - hence my use of the phrase "right away." He obviously had amazing ability - but Fred, and then Prohm, maximized his strengths - helped him develop his skills even more. Had Monte played at Iowa?...just looking at the history of PG play and development under Fran, I am not so sure Man Man would have been drafted.

    I have another quote for anyone that is still reading these.. When talking about the Murray twins, someone said "They're likely solid starting/role players" and "They will come in more polished than most freshman and even Foster for that matter"

    My. God.

    I wonder who Barta would hire if he fired Fran

    Not saying it will happen but Wieskamp could go pro and J-Bo could be a grad transfer with options for tourney level teams. Then we'd get to see McCaffery boys as starters for his dad.
