    The locals are frustrated with the coach. He has a lot of talent and results just aren't there

    I know exactly the roads you're referring to when I go to Sully. It's nothing like that death trap of a road.

    When there is no actual news, like none, CF threads turn into pissing contests over nothing.

    Then you should be just fine when Iowa doesn't get him.

    They are playing mental gymnastics to justify them taking crummy legacy players while the top in-state prospect is still "on the board."

    It's quite comical. Although, I'm guilty of it too when I saw some of the recruits that Rhoads brought in.

    Actually heard the president say the exact same thing about sand VB so it was not just our coach whistling in the wind. The whole momentum to it seems to have slowed some nationwide. No longer a situation of us maybe having to keep up with the Joneses, plus the Big 12 is down compared to the premier VB leagues now.

    Now, back to rural Iowa drive times and such. ;)

    Look at the dates on the predictions...back in 2018 or 2017 for cripes sake. No current ones...and most of the "predictors" are part and parcel with squackeye.report...no bias there...right?

    That post floored me.

    Imagine asking Georges Niang, "Have you considered having your boys spending more time with Prohm's kid to work on their game?"

    I sure can't. Idiot.

    Same guy.

    "If you are comfortable answering, I am interested to know if your boys would have signed somewhere else in November had they not committed to Iowa? Or would they have waited until the spring signing period?"

    I can't make this up. Thank you for the message board fodder.

    I don't get it. Wouldn't Niang be working with Prohm's kids on shooting in this scenario?

    Didn't say he was. Just pointing out there is a recent one and who it is from.

    I think you miss the point. He is saying his kids are good shooters and maybe he could help the McCafferys because they are ****** shooters.

    Thanks, I guess - I was hoping for something substantive rather than subjective, but this is more than others have offered. I'm tired of watching the top Iowa kids go away for school (Marcus Paige, Kirk Hinrich, Nick Collison, Raef Lafrentz) so I'm hoping he selects ISU if for no other reason than to open that small pipeline.

    Somebody suggested I watch YouTube videos of Foster's AAU games, like I know the small intricacies that separate a D1 player from a D3 player. If I remember correctly, Baylor had a seven footer last year (he ate our lunch) who started his college career at D3 St. Thomas in St. Paul! Who missed the ball on him? Then a bunch of you jumped UNI1/ISU2 guy for giving his opinion on personal observations of Foster - what is it? Are we only allowed to give our opinion if we agree with the board consensus?
