Twitter and social media in general....sucks IMO.
Lol, that's a good look...
Can't really blame Murray for defending his kids, but this is supposed to be big time college basketball.
Hawk fans can spin and spin and spin, but there's no dodging the fact that these guys weren't going anywhere anytime soon. There was no rush to scoop them up. Signing them on October 21st is difficult to explain as a good thing in any logical way.
This is going to end badly
From Hawkeye report:
I suspect Sibley was told his scholly was gone with the Murray twins commiting. I think Foster and/or OG are probably still a possibility for the Hawks.
Top 100, 4 star player got his scholarship offer pulled for two unrated, legacies.
I really, really wish that was true. It would be amazing if that's what actually happened.
Good God. He must have purchased the "How To Market My Boys" video series by LaVar Ball.
Wow, this is already a train wreck.
I feel bad for the kids. It isn’t their fault Fran sucks.
If Prohm had added these two in the fall to a class of Walker, Blackwell, and Foster or Terry, we’d all be optimistic that Prohm is ahead of the curve. He has the coaching cred. But given it’s Fran, these kids will bear the burden of his failures.
I can say with total confidence that even in that exact scenario I wouldn't be excited that we rounded out our class with two players that don't even have ratings... I would be pissed that we didn't hold the schollys to balance out future classes.
Imagine the meltdown over there if we end up adding Foster and Terry. FWIW I don't think we're getting Terry.
Agreed. Say what you want about the recruits ability and if they should be P5 or not....that should not take away that they deserve the excitement from getting offered a scholly and getting to play basketball at a school they want to.
There is a "Suck a Fat One" moment coming down the tracks.
Foster will be enough to send them in orbit
Not the greatest situation when a whole lot of the "fans" consider them walk-on material.
You think ISU is the front-runner here for XF (barring unforeseen changes ect)
I wouldn't be happy about signing these two in Oct, if they were May or June signings maybe but I'd probably still rather hold at least one of the schollies for the next season, maybe a mid year guy. The other difference is, we'd have 3 quality recruits to mix with that class, we wouldn't be stuck with 4 no p6 offer kids for the next 4/5 years. For a program like Iowa, class balance is important, having a large class full of kids like this will hamper the program for years. Especially because we know Fran will play them, no matter what.
Foster is coming to Iowa State yes. Book it
Yeah I can get why Iowa fans not too excited about this one. If it were Prohm I'd probably just have a wait and see attitude.
However much more fun when we get news about guys like Wigginton/THT committing or Bolton transferring ect.
Not necessarily. Iowa for a long time has been a PR train wreck. This isn't a troll or a dig on Iowa, that's just the truth.
Social media can be great for instance when ISU is at the B12 basketball tourney.
I get that they've put on weight since last year. However, if simply putting on weight was the issue, Drake or UNI would have offered them. They didn't.
And part of that is on the fans. Want better players and a better atmosphere? GO TO THE GAMES. You shouldn't have to give away seats to even ISU@Iowa, Mich St@Iowa. That's really bad.
That is because they would be going to Kentucky, North Carolina, or Duke.
