    Someone needs to let Hawkeye fans know that all black people aren't related, even if they are from the same city. On second thought, maybe they'd better just stick to recruiting the white kids....

    Bad news for Iowa fans is no more free pizza nights. Part of Josh's deal is that all pizzas go to him first.

    The twins may indeed be Fran's best recruits this year But if that is the case, it says alot about Fran's recruiting abilities.

    Maybe he thinks a B- is the lowest part of the scale?

    Naz Long would disagree with you. He went 5/18 (.278) from 3 his freshman year. After working his tail off during the offseason - especially on shooting - he went 8/11 in the first game of his sophomore season and proceeded to go 239/612 (.391) during his next three full seasons. He came in as a point/combo guard project and gave no indication that he was going to be a shooter when he was being recruited. He made himself into a knock down shooter.

    I'm going to bet the game tonight and need a little help from the most knowledgeable people I know, which is random internet message board people. Iowa is favored by 11.5 points and the money line on Oral Roberts is +550. Do I

    A.) Take the Hawks to cover
    B.) Take the points and ORU
    C.) Win big and play the money line on ORU

    Just so it doesn't look like a total aberration:

    Hoiberg is another example. He started at ISU .260 then went .367, .450, .400 and later lead the NBA one season.

    Also see Jeff Hornacek NBA first three seasons were .279, .293, and .333. After that he proceeded to be over .400 for 9 of his remaining 13 seasons including 6 seasons as a top 5 shooter.

    Well since they both had zero stars it stands to reason they're equally as bad, so it may be pretty difficult to tell them apart. Maybe one is slightly slower and dribbles into more double-teams with his head down than the other?

    Zero stars are a FULL SCHOLARSHIP!? I need to check the NCAA bylaws. I call BS.
