Like who? Wieskamp and Uthoff? Jok couldn’t come here.
It’s about the same.
There any new info on Foster or just banter?
Why the hell would anyone want to play basketball at Iowa? I'd probably even take a look at Creighton before I went there.
I have zero knowledge but it seems like Iowa might the frontrunner.
A lot of schools that offered him have cooled on him.
Also expect him to be a Hawk. Just the way it goes with these things.
not a problem though as there are plenty of fish in the sea when it comes to bball
Who wouldn't want to play collegiate basketball with a bunch of your friends from your Iowa AAU team all while getting verbally assaulted by your coach on national TV every game? Oh, and you may get the chance to watch that coach roll out a lineup consisting of not one, but two of his sons. And you'll have the best seat in the house, right next to him on the bench!
Maybe he has dreams of leading his team to the N.I.T. finals? Hell I don't know.
Foster didn't play AAU ball with those guys
Have you ever tried to drive from Osky to Iowa City, or Osky to Ames. I do not care what Google maps says about the distance, Osky to Ames is four lane roads the entire way up 163 to 80/35. Osky to Iowa City is 2 lane roads all the way to either 80 or over to 218. No comparison. Time wise, Osky to Ames is at least half an hour closer, if not more. Plus you do not have to slow down going through towns on 163 until you get to SE Polk high school, and hit the four stop lights on the road. Bypass around Des Moines and right on 80/35 4 miles till you hit 35. On 163 you are driving 70 or above, the Osky to Iowa City a lot of county 2 lane roads until you get to the interstate with towns that slow you down as you pass through them.
Google says it's 2 minutes faster to Iowa City. I've driven to Iowa City from Osky through What Cheer. It's not any more boring than going to Ames from Osky.
I am not talking about boring, I am talking about time, plus What Cheer is a known speed trap, as you enter the town from the South, and head down the hill into the town. I can drive easily 72 miles an hour on 163, no way would I do that on the county roads up to 80.
Oh, no. I have to drive the speed limit for 3 minutes through What Cheer. The two distances are similar in length and time. Zero chance you're shaving 30 minutes off.
Honestly, does anyone really think drive time is going to have any bearing on his decision? What the hell are you arguing about it for?
I do not. Poster seems to think Ames is so much closer to Osky compared to Iowa City when data suggests it's not. Even if Ames was an hour closer it would not play a role.
Did I actually just stumble into a Waze app or something?
I don't think he's going to be a Hawk but I'll be honest, I really don't care. Don't think he ends up being very good but just my opinion from watching him the last few state tournaments. He wasn't even the best player on his team
I agree! I'm starting think we are backing off! He can't even dominate class 3A in the state of Iowa!
Yes. We should find out who Fran is recruiting and then try to steal those guys away.
