    There's some truth to this. It's not going to look good when over half the responses on Twitter, Facebook, and message boards are negative and doubting their skills. Hopefully they have thick skin.

    Common sense says that they aren’t taking fosters or anyone else’s scholarship. If frans boys walk on it looks like iowa could have as many as 7 rides available.

    Yeah. The first 4 commitments were probably just Fran making sure his fax machine is still working. He'll definitely be landing some big fish with the last 3.

    Fran did it again!

    When Bain, who is one of the most optimistic local recruiting reporters especially on EIU news, is less than thrilled and doesn't think they are P6 worthy that is telling. Now with Cook gone it is really only a mid major roster.
    Then again are we sure Fran isn't really a mid-major coach?

    Still holding out hope for Foster? Look, he could still choose Iowa (although I seriously doubt it) or he could still also choose an "out-of-state" option - I certainly am NOT counting my chickens until they hatch. However, if the shoe were on the other foot and ISU had just offered 3 scholarships (2 going to "big men"), I would have lost all hope in Foster being a Cyclone.

    So how many do you predict they take? You penciling Foster and Sibley in this class too? Is this exactly how Fran saw it playing out all along?

    You're confusing common sense with wishful thinking.

    This is me just speculating, but Xavier Foster has to look at this recruiting class and think "Are you serious?. These are the guys I'd possibly share the floor with next year and the year after?" I think even before these commitments, it was a no brainer decision for Foster as to what program can get him to where he wants to be. Now, the decision should be much easier for him to make.

    Why take these commits now and not wait to see what Foster is going to do?
    These guys weren't going anywhere else in the next month.

    Now I have an image of Fran beating the **** out of a fax machine with a baseball bat. Thank you very much for that. I am going to post the obligatory Office Space GIF.

    Yes, he did.

    And Fran took them anyways.
