    I've never seen the kids play so I have no analysis on that. I will echo what other have said though, I've met them and they seem like good kids. Hopefully Hawk fans don't do what they normally do, which is be ridiculous d-bags to players that don't play up to their expectations.

    I largely agree, it would deserve scrutiny, but Iowa isn’t at our level. Given Prohm’s history and other options, there would be some legitimate rational for optimism. Like when Self offered Frank Mason when Mason was a Townson commit.

    It's very strange that Auburn making inquiries about players, which is SOP for hundreds or perhaps thousands of players around the country, is being viewed by Iowa fans like the school was about to offer any minute.

    DeanVogs: "If ISU lands Foster, the fans are going to melt down, I am going to melt down. Losing Carton stung, but he didn't grow up a Hawk fan. If we lose Foster to a program who doesn't even ****ing recruit Iowa, when Iowa has over 1/2 their roster being Iowan's, I'm gonna lose me ****. I'm already trying to prepare for the fact Foster is gonna go to ISU because I don't want to act a total fool when that news comes out. Somehow I think I'm going to lose that battle and still rant and rave like an idiot on this site if we lose him."

    that’s gonna Be tough for him and the two kids. If Foster doesn’t sign with Iowa, they will forever be linked with him.

    This is where I am at in a few walks of life.

    A loudmouthed, stupid hothead is not playing 4D chess on you.

    He is just a loudmouth, stupid hothead. There is no plan or deep intelligence there.

    This applies to another guy who vexes you often, Pants.

    <3

    This one is a new low, though. I cannot fathom the strategy here besides (1.) being out on literally everybody worth having, which would of course include Xavier Foster, and (2.) being really lazy/not wanting competition for his sons. I guess it would be all of them.

    I can see it already:
    "I suspect Fran gave Foster an ultimatum. 'Commit now or I pull the offer'. Fran doesn't play games. The program comes first, and I know I'd rather have a team full of Murrays and McCaffreys who know what it means to be a Hawkeye, than a selfish, me first flash in the pan. We're better off without Foster. Mark my words."

    It's coming. You know it

    I love how he goes from typing out the middle sentence of the first paragraph to saying “have some class” in the first sentence of the second paragraph.

    I’m curious, since the recent success of ISU hoops started who has been on the police blotter. Here is who I could think of...

    1. BDJ
    2. Matt Thomas

    Help me out...
