    They are similar situations, but Naz did not know he wanted to shut it down he honestly thought he could keep playing. His immobility and struggle during the Iowa game showed he couldn't endure the season and wanted to keep his eligibility. Naz did not knowingly go into the season thinking he was going to tough it out, make it to the Iowa game, and then stop.

    Of course not. Just like Hawk report isn’t either with their 4 win predictions for our football team this year.

    Georges and Abdel were Seniors and I think he wanted to give it a run with them.

    But it’s much different than Pemsl, who knew he wasn’t going to be able to play with his knee, but really didn’t want to miss out on the Iowa State game.

    Definitely. It's even more of a difference in the fact that there was a press release saying he was done for the season and he ended up playing significant minutes only to not play another second the rest of the year.

    I'll take a definite over. With two McCafferys on the the roster, it will be double the trouble for the rest of the Big Ten.

    Are we talking flagrant 1's, 2's or wins?
    Over on the first two & under on the wins.

    I know your post was satire, but next year is going to most likely be rough for Iowa. Losing one of the leading scorers, who has the ball in his hands almost the entire game, and replacing him with brand new freshman / RS freshman. Add onto that they're losing their most athletic post player / player, and their strongest guard. Yikes.

    No, you're calling it a shovel. They aren't the same at all.

    Yeah but Nunge and CJ Frederick have been dominating, posterizing, and embarrassing their teammates in practice.

    That season was supposed to be...

    Morris
    Mitrou-Long
    Nader
    Niang
    McKay
    ---
    Thomas
    Burton
    Bielfeldt

    With that roster, it made perfect sense for Naz to tough it out and go out with Monté, Abdel, Georges, and Jameel as seniors together in one last ride. Considering Monté was planning on going pro, we could have graduated/lost five starters after that season.

    Then he couldn't tough it out anymore.

    Giving it a fair shot in good faith and then shutting it down because (1.) he was clearly not himself and (2.) Burton was about to become eligible is a far cry from specifically choosing the Iowa game to be your only game or last game of the season.

    The lack of Naz and another big man definitely held that team back on depth grounds.

    Just like Kareem Abdul Jabbar and the JV team would dominate Bill Walton's Varsity UCLA team is what I'm hearing.

    Can't agree that they're similar situations.

    Naz played 8 games and shut it down at the limit which happened to be Iowa, and iirc it wasn't announced until after the Iowa game.

    Premsl was reported to be shutting it down, and was inserted into the game for the sole purpose of starting **** with the opponent and selling out to toxify a December basketball game and then went back to being done for the season.

    Pinnacle for hok MBB players - beat their hated rival and idol in early December. You can tell some of them live for that moment and will sacrifice everything to get there.

    Pinnacle for ISU MBB player. Contributing to NBA playoff teams. You can tell some of them live for that moment and belong there.
