It's very similar to the situation with Dabo.
Please refresh my memory on that one! The hoks had so many racial incidents involving so many players over such a long period of time that I can't keep them all straight! (not so subtle jab at the hoks)

Very similar to the TCU incident in which guys were saying that word in the locker room and Dabo told them not to use the word, however while telling them that, he repeated the word and there were players very upset about that.

Ok, thanks! Got it. You were referring to the Clemson situation where Dabo Swinney did basically the same thing that Patterson did.

If that's the case that's not bad IMO

Man that's not a good look at all
Looks to me like the coach was asking the player not to use the word, used the word while asking, and player flipped out. And that seems to be what the accuser himself stated, not the others.

I'm confused.

In all honesty, reading that, I can't really tell who said the N word.

EDIT: Also, there is a national girlfriend day? Or am I missing something?
I took it that the player was saying N word in casual manner in the team meeting room. In private Patterson called him out on it using the N word in his talk to the player.

Just a heads up.... Iowa Football is still racist!!!

Have to try to keep this on the front page. Don't let Barta and KF win by sweeping it under the rug.

I think that iowa fans are being pretty short-sighted in supporting the current staff. By not actively addressing the issue, iowa has just handed every team they are recruiting against a golden ticket when recruiting a black player or even white players who have a social conscience. The culture will just spiral down as they only get kids who are ok with going to a program that is not only racist, but that has doubled down by not doing anything when it was brought to light.
Mike Gundy would be a perfect fit.
