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.
Grandparents can be just as bad. My daughters both have been in the club volleyball and school volleyball scene in DSM area and it can get beyond obnoxious. We've run into grandparents who act as childish as any of the dumb shouting parents, don't want to mention the school <coughJohnstoncough> but it's embarrassing.

Tough to watch this Minny-Iowa game, it's ridiculously physical and very few fouls, they're just beating each other up, but Garza on the bench with two fouls makes it more enjoyable.

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.

Getting upset at a kids game is unacceptable. But sometimes people screw up. Pollard screwed up and it doesn't appear it is a trend. Mad Fran and his wife have had more than one time where they've done things like that.

No. Just refreshing to see the same standard applied to ISU's AD as to Fran's wife.
Always refreshing to see Hawkeye fans continuously prove themselves to be worthless arrogant pieces of **** by coming over to a rival's board to talk smack. Go !@#$ yourself right back over the HN message board.

They've been kicked out of more than one game?

He said "screwed up" correct?
Yeah he said JP screwed up by being kicked out and that Fran and wife have had more than one time where they've done that. Just curious how many times it's happened. Maybe it has happened more than once, I just don't know. If it hasn't, it sounds a little bit like "Yeah but with our guy, it's different."

Does 3 seconds in the paint exist in the B1G conference? Minny and Iowa have both gone past that number a lot.

Did the announcer just say Fran's had remarkable teams at Iowa? A decade and never seeing the second weekend in the NCAA?

Related: A decade and this is the first time he's had a team clearly better than Iowa State.
