    With his latest contract extension he basically does have eff you money. Maybe he's smarter than we all think and is just taking the UI for a ride?

    I think you are mistaken. It has been reported that there is lots of sniffling over in Iowa City along with a stream of tears at this development.

    I asked someone very close to the ISU b-ball program what they thought about the Murray kids and they legitimately had never heard of them. This persons literal job is to find D1 b-ball players and they had never heard of these kids who played 2 hrs from campus for 4 years. This person isn’t a hawk hater either. They gave kudos to Weiskamp and told me last year he’d be a stud at Iowa and also acknowledges that Jor Bo is a very solid player even if he is lippy

    UCF, Fresno State, Rhode Island, and New Mexico

    I figured recruiting against nepotism claims would be difficult for Fran, but I didn't think it would be this difficult.

    I guess Foster to ISU is a done deal. Congrats.

    This spin about these two is already great, they have to RS right? Could 3 out of the 4 in the '20 class end up red shirting? I can't imagine what this place would be like if we had 3 potential RS in a class.

    If you read the report, it looks like they pulled out all the stops by having Hok Legend BJ Armstrong in attendance & posing for a photo. I imagine this was an insurance policy - just in case either were having doubts about accepting their offer.

    What rise have they had? They haven’t played a single minute of prep school b-ball. Has a single other d1 school even showed interest?

    this is more about luck than skill or hard work. They’re lucky Iowa offered them a scholarship. I doubt they’ll be there very long once they realize they’ll never see meaningful minutes. Freakin Brady Ernst was better than these kids and he sucked at ISU, sucked at FGCU and will suck at Drake
