That's. Not. Good.
Kirk will get a very nice retirement severance for this. Let's be real, it's Barta writing the checks.
That guy ended up transferring too fwiw. But doesn't look like he ended up playing elsewhere
I think Kirk is gone
Iowa is nothing compared to south of the Mason/Dixon line. Not even close.
Not a great source...Wadley is a real piece of garbage. Didn't he end up stealing a bunch of hawkeye fans money?
Yeah. Unfortunately for Iowa there are a dozens of reputable sources saying Iowa's football program is racist
As I said before, when Dolye gets rightfully fired the Iowa program as we know it is also gone. Hell, can you imagine Barta having to hire a new football coach?! Especially under these conditions....my goodness he may single handily destroy Iowa Football
Oh trust me, I don't disagree. Merely was saying I personally wouldn't have posted anything from Wadley cause he is trash himself
Yeah, certainly he could do the "high road" resignation and get a check.
I'm guessing a lot of programs, especially in less diverse areas, could have similar stories come out and that is sad for those that have experienced the wrongs. Hoping like many other areas of society, we DO start taking action and get away from the old excuses.
Someone like Kirk has ran the place for many years...he is the culture....and with success brings justification for how things are done. Heck, the whole section 8 housing of his son looks even worse now (was bad then, too).
It's pretty difficult to give anyone on the coaching staff the benefit of the doubt here. I would be shocked at this point if Kirk keeps his job. This is wayyyyyyy more than a couple disgruntled players that transferred speaking out.
Ouch! That's some serious commentary there.
This whole thing is disgusting. If RP broke this type of story for ISU, I bet some would be acting the same way.
While I'm sure that's true, i dont know if "not as racist as the south" is a ringing endorsement.
Who was that racist congressmen that people in the NW portion of the state kept putting in office again and again. And that dude was not shy about his views when it came to white supremecy..
That's absolutely true. I understand why there is disbelief. Sports fandom is a powerful thing. There are just so many players recounting incidents, though. Sharing their stories about how they felt at the time they experienced it, and now. This is so much more than a few disgruntled backups who didn't get play time. The sheer number of reports should make any Hawk fan really think twice before going on the defensive for the football program.
I'm sure if they have something to say they will.
I know Ames isn't perfect and ISU in general has had issues in the recent past with racial stuff, but good Lord this is bad.
