    You don't know what you're talking about. It's straight east out of Oskaloosa and turn north towards I-80 through What Cheer. There are zero 35 mph corners.

    Because there is no news and won't be any news for a couple more weeks. It's the CF way.

    You can taunt the crowd but not the opposing players. Respect your opposition but opposing crowds are ********.

    I watched him play in person multiple times and he did not impress me. I watched him play in the state tournament also. One team he played at state did not have a guy over 6'0 tall and they contained him. He was shooing 3 pointers rather than going underneath.

    Which team didn't have a player over 6 foot?

    Although they look to have totally different styles, this question made me wonder how dominant Loren Meyer looked against those small NW Iowa schools?

    Fosters worth is pretty simple. He's an elite rim protector. When I say elite I mean, he's going to be a millionaire playing the game of basketball if nothing else because dudes like him are rare defensively. I've talked with some college coaches about him...he's legit. Colleges were not looking at his HS stats at Osky...they were watching him against great competition at the AAU level and he did not disappoint. His offensive game, like a majority of bigs is raw and mostly untapped, loads of potential though which is true for most young bigs. He'd be a major 'get' for ISU and I hope he chooses the good guys.

    Tough 24 hours for you. Congrats on beating out Western Illinois for the Murray boys and Ball State for the Indianapolis kid!

    This might come as a shock to some but Steve Prohm will utilize his abilities a lot more than the head coach from Oskaloosa

    The point I was intending to make is that high school stats, especially in small school Iowa, are pretty meaningless. There are too many variables to consider like what the rest of the team consists of causing a player to have to play out of position for instance. The type of play that's deployed by the coach maybe doesn't bode well for a given player (i.e. the player's strengths aren't being played to). Lots to consider.

    Not that you've demonstrated you know jack **** about anything, but I'll ask anyway. What team was that? I'm a little skeptical that such team existed.

    But anyway, thanks for your scouting. It's always awesome to hear random message board dumbasses contradict college coaches. As long as you feel better about Iowa offering guys that should be playing at Wartburg that's really all that matters.

    Guess we're out now. UNI1ISU2 didn't like what he saw. Sorry XF, you're overrated.

    "I lit into David. 'I told you doing that s---, you're hurting the team,'" Holgorsen told ESPN this summer. "He goes, 'Coach, I barely did it.' So I went to the refs and I said, 'Who did he intimidate?' They go, 'He intimidated the crowd.' He intimidated the crowd, is what they said."

    WVU quarterback Will Grier also was penalized for making the signal while celebrating the game-winning two-point conversation in the closing seconds.

    Burks said Tuesday that a display similar to Grier's would likely again be penalized.

    "When we have discussed it, by rule, anything that's prolonged to bring attention to the individual rather than the team is a foul," Burks said. "My advice is if you want to do that, do it back in your bench area. Do it back with teammates. Get away from where you are an individual drawing attention to yourself."

    Probably fair. Went to Pella for school, probably slightly different from Oskie.
