I don't know that the Fran fade is going to happen this year and it certainly hasn't yet.

But I'd like to point out that it has taken 10 YEARS for Fran to have a clearly better season than Iowa State. There's been 2 seasons where you could argue that both teams had similar seasons, but I'd give the edge to Iowa State both times. And there's been 7 where Iowa State has clearly had the better season.

AGAIN 10 YEARS.

What off the court assholedude things has he done? I count the Ohio state ******* cheater thing as court related.
Remember Fran standing behind Patrick's team and he was chewing his ass about something. Almost normal for Fran to do anyway. I remember seeing the video of it. What an asshat!!

Fran's wife has gotten kicked out of more than one of her kid's games?
I don’t know- don’t have a scorecard- I do know in the November incident she held up the game for 5 minutes while refusing to leave. I also have witnessed their behavior at HS games in the MVC. I’ve also seen Ben Jacobson sit at games and watch his son and you wouldn’t know he was there if you didn’t know who he was.
Do other parents behave this way?- hell yeah they do- just not a good look when you are in a highly visible position at a public university. Act however you want coaching your own team- if you are out of line the conference will deal with that (and they’ve had to). Fortunately, the majority our state’s excellent coaches understand this.

Link to video?
I don't provide links to trolls like you. If you can navigate CF, you surely are smart enough to find it on the internet. Pretty sure it was on a CF thread, but not going to appease you and waste time looking for it. Look for it yourself.

Mad Fran, of course. That wasn't the issue. I thought the issue was Fran's wife getting kicked out of their kid's game. She's a psycho, but JP gets a pass for doing the same thing? It's an embarrassment no matter who does it.
I agree with that. ANY parent who gets belligerent at a kid's sporting (or performance) event needs a reality check. My apologies for misinterpreting.

Agree, people need to get a grip. My oldest is only in 1st grade so I haven't seen it yet, but it will come. My bil was guilty of this with his girls in AAU softball, it was embarrassing.
