    Wouldn’t it be funny if they redshirted the Murray twins and they first play as 21 year old freshman? I can see the Fran Fraschilla tweet about a “Mormon Mission” now.

    The database program underlying statistics-keeping for college basketball cannot handle "0" and "00" on the same team. It seems them as the same number. You can have one or the other on a team, but you cannot have both of them by rule.

    Patrick will be 20 this basketball season as a true freshman. No wonder he's so big

    Yes. It was the one that popped into my head and used it as an example even though as I said it is disallowed. Other cutesy things they could do would be under the category "maths". For example one being 32 and the other 5 because 3+2=5. The numbers wouldn't make it clear until the explained why they chose them.

    Looks like Nunge will be a 21 year old sophomore as well. Iowa basketball is just weird and awkward.

    It's like they're the opposite of the NBA where they don't like kids with upside and talent

    It's kind of like a BYU team except Iowa's players spend their year away from the floor getting screamed at by Fran in practice instead of on a mission trip.

    The fact that this thread receives dozens of posts daily, obviously means EVERY day is a "Tough Day for EIU Hoops Hopes."

    Daddy like!

    He was eating his pregame meal, and a grain of rice went down sideways. Scratched his throat up something fierce.

    Is it something they think they can develop after a year of redshirting (i.e. The Nunge Plan)? Or was the scholarship given because Margaret would kick Franny to the curb had he not done so?

    Iowa is actually ahead by 12. ORU turning the ball over left and right. Nunge on fire early. The thing that kills me is how someone as slow on the block as Garza is can get so many calls that go his way. He literally got stuffed, grabbed the ball back and pushed the ball into the defender & lost it on the way up - ORU grabs the loose ball, but the ref calls a 2 SHOT FOUL! Unfreekin' believable!
