    Iowa, Iowa State and UNI all have the exact same academic standards for both admission and remaining eligible for athletics. It's all set by the BOR.

    Sounds like that daughter really sucks as a teacher.

    Honestly, Im sure they feel the same right now as we did when Harrison went to UNC. We all understood it, and it made perfect sense, but we were half trolled into thinking he would come here.

    Pretty sure all the academic standards are exactly the same, as set by the Board of Regents.

    An athlete that tries harder in sports than in s***ty classes they don't care about? Never seen that before!

    She's probably the English teacher. Can't say I cared too much about Romeo and Juliet either, Xavier.

    It's really strange how some hawk fans think the University of Iowa is on the same level as Michigan or Northwestern when it comes to academics.

    Let me guess.... if XF had chosen Iowa this morning instead of ISU.... then all of the sudden he wouldn't have been an academic risk, and we never would have heard about this "teacher" at Osky, am I right?

    I don't believe for a second that this "teacher" even exists. But if they do, their father should not have thrown them under the bus like that.... it could really hurt their career as a teacher.

    There is some hubbub that Fran signed those twins a few weeks ago basically to entice Foster because he's friends with the twins. So Fran signed them swinging for the fences that doing that would make Foster choose Iowa. Now they're stuck with them.

    Also heard Foster really didn't mesh well with Fran's kids. Weird. (heavy sarcasm)

    That Sam guy might be the worst Hawk fan on Twitter, and that's hard to do.

    They'd have been solid role players at Western Illinois. No brainer to get them on board.

    Worst part is that he got his degree from Iowa State.

    I don't doubt this for a second. There was absolutely no reason for Fran to offer those twins... nobody, and I mean NOBODY else wanted them.

    I think Fran absolutely offered them to get XF. I'm so glad it didn't work. Like I said in a previous post.... if Fran could force the twins to walk on right now I'm sure he would.
