    Did he have any P5 offers besides Iowa coming out of HS?

    Imagine how bad they would be without Wieskamp.

    If it was just Garza and the McCaffery boys.

    That is where they would be if they did have that lifelong Hawkeye fan fall into their lap.

    Yikes.

    Absolutely. I find it amusing for how much grief Randy gets (rightfully so), Hawkeye fans completely turn a blind eye on admitting how bad Chad is and that he is a complete fan boy which blinds him of objectivity.

    I really think this board needs to only say positive things about Fran. We need to make sure he retires at Iowa.

    Night and day scenarios IMO. Wieskamp never even considered another school, he was committed to Iowa before the ink on the offer letter even dried... I'm sure the kid loves playing for the team he grew up idolizing but you can't convince me he doesn't have some buyers remorse.

    It seems like the Register made an editorial decision at some point that its sportswriters needed to sound less like objective journalists and more like writers from sites like Cyclone Fanatic or Hawkeye Nation. But even by that standard, Chad is a full-on propagandist.

    And that's true of most media that covers Iowa. They aren't all as dogmatic but they're all just Iowa fans masquerading as journalists. I saw a ton of sports programming directors for radio stations I'd never heard of coming out of the woodwork to taunt ISU in the wake of the Iowa game and the band situation that followed.

    Is it any wonder why Iowa thinks it can get away without announcing contract extensions for Barta and Fran when there's nobody to hold them to account for it?

    D2?

    I've seen 2nd string class 1A mid-1990s guards with better basketball skills.

    They could also end up with a Long Beach State Lute Olsen type of guy or a New Orleans Tim Floyd kind of guy...I vote Barta stays the course and lives with McCaffery for years to come. It doesn't matter what their fans think...the donors love Barta and Barta loves Fran and Kirk...

    Like every other player on Iowa's roster where else were they going to go?

    Who would have thought a grad transfer who chose Iowa over Portland State isn't good?

    Gissel, Woodbury, Uthoff (transfer), Jok, Pesml, McC boys and Wieskamp may have given Fran a false since of entitle ment that EIU would just get the best player in Iowa every year to supplement his mid major roster (w/Cook). It did for his fans.

    That has changed last year with Carton and this year with Foster...

    Fran's recruiting is in a world of hurt by not making in roads with suitable replacements pivots in the case they didn't just come to IC regardless of coaching. Oh well.

    I thought the Hawks were in mid-season form.
