    If it is option 1...then you tell XF "see ya"! No way he is worth 3 scholarships!

    Fran could've also driven to tell XF not to freak out when he sees these guys committing and know that he has a spot on the team if he chooses Iowa.

    Or he told him his services weren’t needed at the University if Iowa any longer. Fran appears to be even deeper in over his head than when he was assaulting refs he’s just letting out the aggression through stupidity.

    It has to be option 1. It was a "come play with your buddies" pitch.

    Even Franny can't be arrogant enough to pressure a high level recruit into committing, by saying 2 D-II guys might take his spot..

    The threads on HR have multiple mentions of them going to IMG....not one person has corrected it.

    This seems to be the pitch he's been using at Iowa since he took over.

    I posted this in the 2020 thread. It's too good to not include here.

    Pretty easy to make the case that UNI's 2020 class of Bowen Born, Tytan Anderson (North Scott) and Nate Heise (CG from Minnesota) is better than what Francis has coming in.

    Meaning that Francis, who can't even recruit at UNI's level is certainly due another extension.

    Fran's getting a little ahead of himself if he thinks this will please Barta.. he'll have to lose another conference road game by 25+ if he is wanting another extension.

    Has the decline in Fran's recruiting been due to a decline in the Iowa feeder program? I assume the talent level on the Barnstormers has gone down since their scandal. Aren't most of their players from that AAU program? Fran was supposed to be pretty tight with their creepy director.

    I mean this is just honestly hilarious.

    1. They weren't 6'5" last year. They were 6'7". One of them maybe grew an inch.
    2. If Auburn was "sniffing around", there is absolutely no one reporting on it. I can't find a single tweet or message board post about other than Iowa boards.
    3. They literally just took two players that couldn't garner Mo Valley offers.
    4. This means that there were literally two players on an Iowa high school team that couldn't get to state that are now part of the Iowa program.

    I've been on a bit of a self-imposed posting ban... but this whole thing is quite frankly the most perplexing move I've ever seen. These guys are spring, fallback to the fallback type recruits. These guys had to go to a sketch prep school to get better offers than Upper Iowa. It's absolutely bizarre.

    Auburn had nothing to do with them. If someone said Auburn was sniffing around or visited them that's made up

    The closest Bruce Pearl got to offering them was taking one look at their profile / highlights and then pressing the "close window" button on his google chrome after 30 seconds.

    Has an Iowa Basketball recruit ever not grown 2-3 inches? The best is the 6'7 Ahmad Wagner for Iowa is now the 6'5 Ahmad Wagner for Kentucky

    Technically, Auburn's satellite juco program showed some interest.
