    I looked at their roster & couldn't recognize very many of them. Who the heck is Vanderloo, Hobbs, Ash, Baer 2.0 ??? I know we have walk-ons - but these guys are supplementing Till, Kreiner, Frederick, Nunge, C Mac, & Pemsl. That is BAAAAAD!! Wieskamp & Garza actually can play B1G ball, but other than that....???

    I don't think even in the Spring you waste two scholarships on kids like this

    It’s no wonder they get so up for the CyHawk and generally play hard, albeit mediocre. Fran has built his program on Taverhawks trying to punch above their weight.

    There is no way he doesn't play this year. I think he's a doucher but I don't want him to rush a serious injury. Sit out a year, transfer, sit out a year, stay. But to most likely lace it back up in December is a little interesting to say the least.

    He'll do like Pencil and just come in for the ISU game and then shut it down for the season to still get a redshirt. You watch.

    It definitely is starting to look like JBo will suit up at some point this season and it'll be interesting to see how he looks. He'll be coming back early from a pretty significant surgery and I don't think it's going to fair well for him. In the past, Iowa has been able to cover up their lack of athleticism, however this year will be different. They have little to no athletes and Jordan is going to have to guard someone a hell of a lot quicker and faster than him. Couple that with the fact that defenses are now going to treat Jordan as Iowa's second best offensive weapon, so his shots are going to continue to get tougher and tougher. He's going to have to do all of that with an injured hip.

    That was always true, hip or no hip.

    Oh no doubt, but now he's going to be coming back from an injury, so it'll be even worse..

    His defense was bad before, don't know how it improves with this.

    Iowa has a pretty rough stretch of games this year where they could realistically lose 7 in a row.

    Texas Tech in Las Vegas
    Probable loser of Creighton vs. San Diego State in Las Vegas
    @ Syracuse
    @ Michigan
    vs. Minnesota
    @ Iowa State
    Cincinnati in Chicago.

    Ha, the Hok fans have been saying that each year and it hasn't happened.

    Technically, it is an option but will are there any legacy mid-major recuits Iowa left for Fran to take?
    We know he would't save a roster spot on a transfer (like real P5 programs) if so.

    I think it is going to be a lot like Naz. Just see how it unfolds.

    13 scholarships are available.
    I'm seeing some references to 15 being the max number of players that can dress for a game, but I'm not sure if there's a bench or walk-on limit.

    Correct, minus the d-bag factor.

    I don't want to go back and find the post, but I quoted last week a post from HR from someone who said there's no difference in Iowa City and Ames when comparing the ability to develop NBA talent.. lol
