    I would be pretty shocked if he came here and I think we will be just fine without him

    Yeah, but that drive is a *****. Up to ames is 163 to I80 to I35. The drive to Iowa City is back roads with some 35 MPH corners.

    How many times have you driven the routes we are talking about here? I have driven both multiple times, and its at least 30 minutes faster to Ames. You talk about Slowing down through What Cheer, but you sure as hell cannot drive much over 65 on those county roads until the interstate, now can you. On 163 its 70 and a little above, all the way to SE Polk HS. It adds up and makes a difference.

    I get it, Oksy is a very pro hawk town, and I am sure he is getting a lot of pressure from the town folk to sign with Iowa. Its his decision, but for his parents, ease of driving to Ames, may influence that decision, or maybe not.

    I believe you @CyTwins and everyone else should, too. I have heard from two other very reliable sources that his plan is to wear the Cardinal and Gold next year. These sources do not speculate or try to connect dots, they actually have ties to the truth. They have never been wrong before.

    Barring a RADICAL change of heart, Foster will be a cyclone.

    There, now I can go down with the ship with CyTwins if we are wrong.

    So are we "lead-pipe lock" level of confident, or "gun to my head" level confident?

    My "fear" at this point. I put that in quotes because I'm not really concerned.

    I came to terms a long time ago that if he chose Iowa he just doesn't care about basketball.

    Especially with that new flyover bridge. That thing is a dandy.

    They sure don't have that in Iowa City. That must have been Prohm's big pitch.

    No idea what Foster will do but our system is a MUCH better fit for him compared to Iowa. He can hang around the outside and shoot 3s in our system where he'll get Woodbury'd in a system like Iowa. That's his style.

    We're screwed though if he has a thing for eye-poking. Iowa is the best program in the nation in that department.

    Fun story. While we all know what lead-pipe lock means there really is no traceable application of a lead pipe that leads to the derivation of this phrase.

    It's actually lead pipe cinch.

    Carry on.

    I've never seen the young man play. Your last sentence caught my attention so I took a brief look at IHSAA Quick Stats and was surprised. Against primarily 3A competition, the 7 footer only scored 14.4 points / game on 53.6% shooting. Despite having a "twin tower" (6'10 Cole Henry), they lost five games, being swept by Pella which didn't feature a player over 6'6. When Cole Henry didn't play @ Pella, Foster scored 9 Points on 4 of 14 shooting in a blowout 64-39 Loss. Most surprisingly, he only shot 82 free throws in 24 games (3.4 / game), at a 51.2% clip - why didn't he get fouled more?

    Serious question for those of you in the know. What are the stats not showing and why is most of the board acting like this is a critical "get"?
