    I'm surprised 247 isn't stepping in to tell those 2 to stop bring stop being stop being such big homers. Maybe it sells subscriptions though

    I mean I get what you are saying, but if I’m gonna dump on him I’ve got to give him a little credit for taking advantage of that and being better than those teams when they were down. You’d expect him to always be below them and he wasn’t. He was just never able to build on that success and that is directly correlated to his failures in recruiting.

    It seems like the next couple of years don't offer Fran the homegrown talent that grew up die hard hawk fans and are passable D1 players. That, coupled with two sons on the team, could be his ultimate downfall.

    A new coach for Iowa can suddenly change that in Iowas favor. You just never know. Some coaches are better salesman than others to hs recruits.

    That makes way more sense. I couldn't get through my head how this person thought ten years wasn't enough time to build a stable program.

    Iowa plays Oral Roberts (1-2) tomorrow night. It'll be interesting to see how Iowa bounces back from the embarrassing loss on Monday. Oral Roberts only lost their opening game 80-75 @ Oklahoma State, and also lost @ Tulsa 74-67 on Tuesday. Could honestly be an interesting game.

    My lord what baseline is he using to grade? Low rated 3 stars cannot be a B+ and then 0 stars can't then be a B-? Lol that makes zero sense.

    This right here is one of the reasons why Fran keeps his job.
