    My favorite from Hokeye Pokey forum:

    Surprised he didn't make his choice known while holding a pig under one arm.
    Oh well - good luck at Moo U .


    Guy probably has a ANF sticker on his pickup.

    As an athletic 7 footer, I knew Foster was heralded as a great rim protector, but it's amazing that he doesn't even have to be on a basketball court to fill up a stat sheet. Right now he's 0/0 shooting, with 0 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 turnovers, and 1 big, fat, resounding rejection.

    Send it into the stands, Big Man!!!! Go Cyclones!

    What makes this gold is, we got one of the players he was talking about.

    Here is my two cents. I don’t follow b-ball recruiting a whole lot, but this one had so much information one way or the other. For a while he seemed like an ISU lock, then it seemed he was an Iowa lock and then he picked ISU. Probably the biggest turn of events in the last 72 hours of any recruit I can ever remember. It seemed he was trolling both fanbases. But in the end I wish him nothing but the best.

    Honest opinion...I think both fan bases trolled themselves. A lot of people hang on every word these recruits say. I take XF and his family at their word today, XF didn't decide until yesterday. They respect both programs and have a lot of good things to say about both. He says one nice thing about Iowa, everyone loses their mind and says he's going to Iowa. Same thing happened when he said nice things about ISU. My guess is he was truly undecided until yesterday and until then wanted both doors open until he firmly decided.

    That's why he still wears cargo shorts - because sometimes the fanny pack can't hold everything.

    Very odd to have all the crystal balls go one way the day before an announcement and then have it go the other way. I think xf was conflicted no doubt, but that is still strange to me.

    Who exactly are you calling a racist? Fran? Fran's players? The administration? Or is it it really just some moron posting ignorant things that has zero ties to the hawks? If it's the latter, why waste our time when we should be thrilled to have another player choose ISU?

    XF didn't troll anyone. He went through the recruiting process and didn't show his cards at any time.

    All the trolling was done by fans and pundits on both sides.

    I think the guys that were giving their crystal balls were a little ahead of themselves. Most of them gave their picks last fall when XF still hadn't narrowed down his list of schools yet. I don't think anything changed in XF's mind.

    Oh I'm absolutely not calling their coach or their administration racist. I'm saying that I've seen a lot of posts on the Iowa message boards bringing up race. This thread was started to show reactions of Iowa fans, and I quoted someone who posted about a reaction made by a Hawkeye fan on one of their boards.

    I feel so bad for the Murray twins.

    between the perception that already exists, and their dad being an online presence, I don’t see how it ends well

    too many of their fans have made it a mantra to rationalize the result Fran has vs Fred, and now Prohm.

    I don't find it odd. If Fosters really didn't decide to 3 PM yesterday then those crystal ball guys are just throwing out guesses. If one of the local insiders don't know anything then Jerry Meyer has no clue.
