    Guess I will not bag on the Murray offer until I see what they can do. It looks like a WTF offer if Prohm did it, but he has had some of those that turned out to be right. Maybe the light has come on for them in the last year, and they are much better than their ratings.

    Still wonder why Fran seems to offer a lot of skinny 6' 7" guys when they so clearly need some guards, but he must have a plan.

    He does. He's shown he is very fond of the all small power forward line up.

    Coaching is a lot easier when everyone is interchangeable.

    I'm not sure about the part bolded above. He had some "fillers" like Brase, Jeff, & Holden - but those were transfers, not High schoolers with "zero stars." Even his high school recruits that have transferred out generally had numerous D1-major offers. Fran continues to offer the Jorbos of the world (or his own kids) and fill in the rest of the roster with Iowa fans' kids. Once in a while he gets a legacy / Iowa fan recruit that is really good (Weiskamp, Uthoff). He has done pretty well in getting a largely mid-major roster to overachieve (at least offensively) - but the well seems to be drying up (that is why Foster could be a major coup for us).

    All those transfers had P5 offers too. Hell even Georgetown and St Johns wanted Beverly

    That 59 is for the recruit ranking. Not pre-season ranking.

    This pretty much sums up the real, vast majority of Iowa fans. Don't know a ******* thing about ISU players but throw out the typical veiled racist drivel you'd expect from a fanbase made up primarily of old white burnouts from **** hole dying Iowa towns. Once again, the "Transfer thug" argument ended with the Anthony Hubbard recruitment. Sucking with a bunch of white dorks from Iowa for the following decade doesn't change that.

    It probably isn't far off. 10th in the B1G. Would like to see them finish a bit higher. We are all laughing about it now but we are in earshot of Fran being run off especially considering the talent he has (or hasn't) lined up for the next few years. It will be a sad day when we wake up and find out he has jumped to take his dream job at Binghamton.

    1) we do? I never heard of anyone stealing a prom date to prevent someone else from going with them

    2) Prohm = Bear Bryant... Cool!
