    Most of their fans really have a blinded view of how college basketball works and don’t understand the game very well. Guards control the game at this level and the slow lumbering big guys are dinosaurs, and I’m not talking the fast ones. You need athleticism and length. Kids nowadays want to play wide open. You have to be positionless and have the ability to successfully switch on defense. You also want to limit liabilities on the court like JorBo. Sure he shoots it well but he doesn’t play defense, doesn’t handle well, doesn’t rebound and basically is a liability out there. For what he gets offensively he gives it up in other aspects.

    What will end up costing Iowa more money, Fran's buyout our replacement panels for the scorers table?

    I don't get "jealous" about AD's.

    This plus I can totally see him playing him too much instead of maybe redshirting like he probably should and he gets hurt even worse.

    This! FFS they know where he is at so why even risk it? They are gaining nothing by playing him and if I was his parents I would be freakin pissed.

    I heard the Hawkeye announcers during their first game say that JorBo has to play in 10 games and then sit out the rest of the year to get his medical redshirt. Amazingly, their 10th game of the season is at Ames! So, I guess the plan is in place.

    You'd much rather have Pollard as an AD than your current situation. Call it what you want

    I think we are actually game #11 for them this year. They should have a second game in Vegas.

    OK, I didn't see that on their schedule. So, he will sit out one game prior to ISU. Got it!

    Correct. That is why he is going to sit out game(s) before the CyHawk game so he can play in that before shutting it down.

    They are doing him such a disservice if that is the plan. I know the rule is 30% but one could argue playing him more then 8 games is playing with fire. Iowa of all places should know you don't take medical hardship waivers as slam dunks.

    Understandable that none of these hok fans mention the greatest Iowa State/Iowa game of all time. They probably want to forget that epic 102-100 OT loss and the name LaFester Rhodes, forever.

    I thought it was a standard redshirt, not a medical. Basically the 10 games is equivalent to the football 4 game rule for redshirts.

    No.. you play 1 minute of any game in basketball and you cannot use regular redshirt..

    wts, it is utterly stupid the NCAA didn’t make same rule for b-ball that they did fball.. makes zero sense.
