    Yea, this is embarrassing. Dad is already responding to twitter trolls and posting on message boards. Still a year away from kids even practicing in IC.

    I think the majority of Hawk fans think that ship has sailed.

    Monte what did he do? THT shoplifted right? Nader being involved with BDJ

    First off there's so much wrong with it. Marble and White had major conference offers and it's not even physically possible to add over 20 lbs of muscle in 6 months

    Monte was in the bars after hours IIRC. Nader got an OWI. Throw Lard in there too but I think his charges were dropped

    This will be fun to watch unfold.

    I literally lol'd at this comment from that thread:

    I was encouraged by the fact that they had apparently played multiple pickup games with the current Iowa players that I'm assuming some of the staff watched. If they hadn't been able to cut it, I doubt they would have been offered.

    I disagree with the muscle issue. Particularly with kids that age. I have seen one of my boys add serious mass in 6 months. With a proper plan, nutrition, sleep, etc it is not impossible. There is also the "growth" in height(which may be suspect).

    I find twitter to be a cesspool but it's a good tool when used properly.

    I do think it has schewed the perception of where the public is at especially in regards to politics or, in this case, sports fans....too many bend over backwards to appease the twitter mob and think they represent "average joe" when in realtiy it's the loud mouthed few.

    Sorry for the rant

    What's funny is last year they were listed at 6'8 and 6'7 and nobody wanted them but now that they are 6'8 and 6'7 they are worthy of a Fran scholarship lol

    Bending over backwards is not always a bad thing, bending over forward on the other hand.....

    MadFran's final defense for signing the Murray's will be something like--
    "I've heard it all before. Heard it when I signed my own sons. If you knew anything about basketball you'd know their FT percentage is elite. So GTFO. That includes you Dolph."

    Nader had an OWI and Monte was cited for being in a bar underage.

    Not saying ISU hasn't had minor issues but it isn't uncommon for most college programs... and EIU isn't above it anyway. ex. Peter Jok and Cordell Pesml (who is on suspension currently).

    If true, isn't that a recruiting violation?
