Sibley is going to go to Georgetown
Tell that to the crystal ballzzz
I feel bad for a fan base that is trying to pump up this recruiting class for Iowa. I mean its down right terrible. They are trying to pump this Josh Ogulende (SP?) like he is Hakeem or something. I mean he is a fringe player with a Rutgers offer. I mean He would be a great get if they had a couple of 4 stars. Like if we took him, that would be good since we have all of our main targets and we just add a guy in case he might end up good.
Not sure how Fran will survive much longer with this terrible of recruiting.
Ha, The Crystal Ball predictions have never failed EIU fans.
For the same exact reason XF signed here, those trenchers are wise to sign with Iowa. I think we'll see that change some once ISU starts placing linemen in the draft.
The last few classes coupled with Fran's inability to get a quality transfer will end up being the nail in the coffin but it will still be a couple years before he's fired. I honestly don't see how they turn it around at this point because they have almost nothing to build around.
When your "best recruit" in a 5 man class is a 22% free throw shooter who's best offer was Rutgers I think it's safe to say they will have a new head coach if they stay their whole career unfortunately
Hey, but the Twins were goign to go to Auburn! I mean they just beat them to the punch, despite this not being reported anywhere. Just what some people were saying.
Some fans will always have the mentality that if you talk bad about a program or coach then you aren't a fan. Those people lack common brain functionality, so I wouldn't worry about those opinions.
Fran got extremely lucky that Iowa has produced OK/decent talent over the past 10 years. He has failed to recruit outside the state of Iowa with a few exceptions, and even failed on some of his best talent (Uthoff, and slightly with Jok until they were the only offer). Most didn't have any other decent offers so they chose Iowa or were Iowa fans, but he's lucky they were decently talented. They have kept him good enough to appease some of the fans and have had good stretches - but ultimately the wheels fall off and his poor coaching and development have killed him. His inability to recruit is mind blowing and laughable for a Power 5 conference, and the fact that he has 2 kids on the team is going to make it even harder to get rid of him.
Foster would have made Iowa better, no doubt, but in the end he would have kept this status-quo of being decent enough to keep Fran but bad enough to lose by 15 to Depaul thing going. It should be a rude awakening to Barta (not that this should have been it considering the past 10 years, but Barta is a moron) that what he has isn't working and will only continue to get worse if he doesn't do something soon. Unfortunately, he now has 2 kids on scholarship and what a **** show it'll be to watch either way (fired or not). Can't wait.
Maybe they still are - perhaps DME has a game scheduled there this season.
Like, on vacation, or something?
LOL - literally OL.
I, for one, think that Iowa IS doing it the right way. I think that Fran should continue recruiting "under-the-radar" guys (with zero to 2 stars) and fill the rest of his roster with Riley Till types. I also love that he features his own kids "front and center," not to mention that amazing 12-14 player rotation. Keep it up Fran, keep it up. Oh, and Gar Bar, I hope you feel the same way I do. I think it's time that MadFran get another extension, and time for him to make another Championship Defense video!
The Iowa 247 guy compared him to Zach Randolph.
can’t make this up.
Who is the next big in-state recruit?
Thicc in this case...
The mad hatter isn’t going anywhere before Patrick...
Fran was lucky that he had several years of a very soft B1G as well. Several of his "good seasons" were fools gold.
