    That is Fran's 10 year recruiting blue print. Franny Mac will recruit those two for 3 years ignoring other fallback options, make the top 5, get the EIU fans hopes up, only to finish 4th once again and scramble into taking two MVC level players.

    You’re clearly a high-major guy.

    It could/should be a good MVC class. Recruiting rankings are nearly irrelevant for mid-major recruiting. The fit is good. Although he can’t land his first 50 targets, Fran has a decent eye for talent imo. He’ll have them at an average mid-major level. Iowa could do a lot worse than Fran.

    Iowa fans can't forget Todd Lickliter if they want to get rid of Fran

    The earliest a coaching change for Iowa is even possible would be after the 2021-2022 season. That's after Connor's senior year.

    In person Hilton is fine the way it is now. On TV where most of us watch it, it's too dark. I agree, bring back the lights.

    Well I'm not going to be pessimistic and I added "cautiously" for a reason.

    We'll see....I'd like to see them actually play before passing judgement.

    Aren’t they at the IMG Academy? I think IMG has its own internet TV channel.
