    Maybe Fran promised he'd be the bobblehead at their next giveaway. Or Foster Fudge ice cream will be handed out.

    I want Prohm and ISU to win in a big way.
    I also want idiots in this fanbase to stop making stupid comments that are little brotherish when it comes to Iowa (or Baylor or KU, etc).
    Win on the field, court, and mat and keep your mouth shut until we do.
    In before dislikes, dumbs, disagrees, accusations of not being an ISU fan, and maybe even an ok boomer.

    I'm not too hard on kid wanting his families support at a school he grew up with them loving and going to games. Would have loved to see him go to ISU, but it's all good.

    If he goes to Iowa, oh well. Going to Iowa completely throws away his career and he’ll probably end up average at best. Not sure I understand how that’s more appealing than actual success but we will be fine without him

    None of us have any idea where Xavier is going to go.

    Yes, going to the IC game Friday night did not look good for ISU, but what kid wouldn't take a free pass to a college game? I think the only way it would have told us anything would have been that ISU and Iowa both were at home on the same night..........and he chose to go to one game over an other. My guess though is that Xavier is smart enough, and has kept his decision close enough to the vest that he would have stayed home and not gone to either game. I really hope he chooses ISU. No doubt one of his goals is to get to the NBA, and if you are comparing ISU and Iowa as to which school has had the most success in that in the last decade and with the current staffs, the choice is ISU, hands down. As far as style of play and how he might be utuilized by the two schools, I don't see that much difference between them, but maybe he does. What does bother me about this thread is those saying he is making a mistake (or stupid) if he goes to Iowa City. Why would any 'fan' make such a statement on a free public message board? THAT is what is stupid and idiotic. What if Xavier reads this board, or members of his family do? Is that really the message some of you want to send out before he makes his decision. We have no idea what these recruits look at before they make their choices or what might affect those decisions. But making derogatory comments about a recruit s that the recruit may see is beyond dumb.

    Who does the staff turn their attention to now?

    Blackwell, Dubar and Walker is still a pretty solid class

    Or maybe this is example #7512 of fans living life in an echo chamber and believing what they hope instead of reality.

    That said I have no idea where he’s going and I don’t think others know either.
