    I just hope next season Foster can blow their student body a kiss like Niang did! That would be another kick in the Nads!

    It is a certainty that when someone continues quoting the movie by asking "Germans?" someone else will misunderstand and assume they don't know the reference.

    XF probably has too much history at EIU to troll them as a freshman. Once he gets enough hate from Hok fans and understands their arrogance to other local schools he'll embrace being a Cyclone and only then be ready to troll like Georges.
    A lot of ISU alumni grew up knowing only Iowa and it took attending ISU to embrace and love Ames and learn to despise tavern hoks.

    Nobody trolls like Georges.

    I bet he is absolutely infuriating.

    It's the CURSE OF DR. TOM DAVIS why the Iowa basketball program is in the shape it is in.

    Going to the second or third round and occasionally a little higher in the NCAAs nearly every year wasn't good enough for the the fans when Dr. Tom was there.

    Averaging a 4th place finish in the Big 10 during Dr. Tom's tenure wan't good enough.

    They pushed Dr. Tom out the door to bring in Golden Boy Steve Alford.

    I think Dr. Tom cursed that program as he walked out the doors of Carver for the last time.

    Iowa fans were the same with lute. Maybe it’s the water?

    And as much as I dislike Iowa I have to admit that was a fun brand of basketball. Hard as it is to believe now CHA could actually get pretty damn loud when that full court press was working.

    Random, but it appears Lick is an assistant at Evansville now. Would be hilarious to see them beat Iowa should that opportunity ever happen

    Can't say I'm a big fan of Jor-Bo, but if Isaiah Moss of all people had big name teams looking at him then I'd imagine Bohannon would too

    JorBo could go a lot of places if he is willing to accept a role where he plays no more than 20 minutes per night from the bench, coming in to hit 3/5 from three and try to be more than a traffic cone on defense, and that is basically his night.

    It is either that or be "the man" on a trash can of a team, Iowa or otherwise.

    Probably better than what Fred inherited from Tim Miles at Nebraska.

    Cant wait for all of the “Will XF back out of his commitment?” takes if we lose. It’s a pretty meaningless game in a season especially if both teams are unranked just due to the conferences the teams are in. It’s all about going .500 in either conference when it comes to getting to the goal which is the ncaa tourney.
