    I don’t think twins will let a good crisis go to waste.

    This isn't a raging forest fire in many peoples eyes, yet. Kirk is putting some water on the fire.

    Baylor, Penn State, MSU were raging forest fires, this isn't on that level yet.

    The word "classy" has been used to to describe Kirk a few too many times around Iowa City.

    I feel just terrible for all of these Black athletes (and so many others). Promises were made to their parents to take care of them, to help them grow. They were promised to be treated great and celebrated - and they were mocked for their color of their skin, the music they liked, their very culture. How damn awful that must have been every day waking up, feeling like you had to keep eating their **** just for a maybe chance at the NFL, or the chance to play at all.

    And this is without any discussion if payment is warranted and now having the responsibility of having to play football to keep entire athletic departments afloat.

    The response by a segment of Hawk fans is unsurprising. We would have a segment like that too. Don't kid yourself. It's really disappointing to hear the reaction by some Hawk fans to what the Hawk football players have been saying.

    I agree. This isn't a proud moment for anyone in the state of Iowa.

    Every fanbase would have people who react that way.

    Ok a lot of stuff at U of Iowa right now but not starting a black QB is the stupidness thing I’ve read.

    see any Black QBs at Purdue? Kstate? NW? I could go on and on...

    that’s dumb.

    reggie Roby might have been best punter in college football history....Was it racist since then Kirk didn’t have a black punter?

    Circling back to the Kirk video...what kind of investigation are they doing?

    If UI is smart they'll commission an independent investigation.
