This is all so damn entertaining. I mean I knew it was going to be good but not THIS good. Fran is absolutely burying himself and the Iowa program. The next couple of years are going to be really fun to watch.
Next couple? Fran just signed what basically amounts to a lifetime contract.

Kinda quiet on HR right now. Probably all getting in their afternoon naps. Most of them are like this with the Iowa Basketball program. Notice the anger though in regards to the CJ tampering story.

Hawk fans are bound and determined to get their pound of flesh out of this whole Frederick transfer deal. They were wronged and someone must pay! They're not going to let go until someone is held accountable.
But that's not going to happen. Even if tampering occurred, nothing is going to happen to Frederick or Kentucky. The Hawks are going to wail and scream and gnash their teeth demanding action, and the only potential outcome is that they will end up hurting themselves.
After seeing how their school and fans reacted to this, would any recruit be MORE likely to choose Iowa? There's no win there. It literally cannot help them with recruits. The very best possible outcome is that it wouldn't change a recruit's opinion. And potentially, it could make them think less of Iowa.
I get that it sucks to get jilted, but they need to realize that the frothing furiousness is not helping at all.

Someone let us know if there is embarrassing KXNO outrage today, I have low tolerance for any of them other than C-Willy

I have a question for hok fans. Why do you all think Frederick is good enough to get Kentucky tampering? I just don't see it.

Outside of Haluska maybe, I can’t think of one transfer that I’ve had disdain for. And I didn’t even have it for him, I was mostly just indifferent and pissed that he went to Iowa and was a good player for them, making them better. But I wasn’t angry at him about it. I can honestly say there’s not a transfer from Iowa state that I didn’t still cheer for, or at the worst case scenario, was just indifferent about.

I know a lot of people were upset about how the situation went down with Wes Johnson. I wasn't too upset because McDermott murdered my love of ISU basketball.

As I tweeted earlier, Keegan Murray is a projected 2022 first round draft pick by ESPN. Some of you had questions if Keegan would declare this year and go through the NBA draft process, his father, Kenyon just tweeted that Keegan will not go through it.
Jesus lol

He didnt go through it because he’s a wing that averaged only 7 ppg on under 30% 3-point shooting and knows he wouldnt sniff the first round and might not be drafted at all. And he played in a game that Oregon looked like they were having their own dunk contest against his team so I know he isnt some defensive whiz either.

Am I missing something?

King of OT but Haluska explained his transfer in a Moonlight Graham podcast.
