    I've never seen you play, @GTO, but I am cautiously optimistic you can play 20 minutes a night for the Hawks.

    Informal poll:

    So which cute thing are the Murrays going to do with their numbers? Are they going to have consecutive numbers like 32 and 33 or are they going to do the number flip where they have the same digits just in reverse order like 32 and 23.

    Rating poll:
    Informative for consecutive numbers
    Creative for flipped numbers
    Disagree if you think they won't try to get cute.
    Agree if you think they will try to get cute in some other way (e.g. 0 and 00 - although I don't think you can have both on one team)

    Maybe they'll occasionally pretend to be each other, just to mess with people.

    My two handed set shot is pretty potent.

    Theres a difference between being a pessimist and a realist. Any Iowa fan should know by now what they've got with Fran, his recruiting, and his (in)ability to develop. This isn't year 3, its year 10, and he's signing guys not being looked at by comparable programs.

    Chose agree because I think they'll choose 0 and 00. They'll choose those because it's equal to how many Power 5 offers they had other than Iowa and the overall impact they'll have on the program.

    6'8 shooters who nobody want usually means you're the next Waterloo Dale

    I haven't just going off what I've heard/read. Other parts of the game can be developed....the ability to shoot is usually there or it isn't.

    Have you heard that once they get to Iowa they will be 20 year old freshman with zero stars between them?

    I actually believe the exact opposite. Athleticism and court vision seem to be inherent, skills like shooting can absolutely be developed.
