I predict bohannon continues to hang around the program, tries to set himself up as a some sort player advocate, deriding the NCAA on Twitter and trying to set up endorsement deals for current Hawkeyes with local car dealerships and the like

Easy to say in hindsight, but the perception of Iowa coming into the season was inflated by the return of Garza. I’ll admit, I bought into the hype.

I understand that Iowa is often going to be out manned on the perimeter, but the effort and defensive (lack of) execution is inexcusable at this point.

Mark my words, bohannon is going to end up as our version of Niang, just without tits.

EDIT: on social media anyways.

Seeing a lot of bitching for Fran not getting more out of this roster. That's totally backwards to me. Fran needs to start recruiting better or I don't know how much more you can expect him to get out of this caliber of players.

Iowa's recruiting classes that made up this roster, per 247:

2020: 60
2019: 73
2018: 67
2017: 57

Fans are usually quite reasonable

Inflated? They returned the best player in the country and the rest of the team that mattered. It wasn't inflated.

These numbers really should be more startling. Luka probably saved Frans shit.

He’s to the point where he’s old for baseball. He’s 22 now and will be 23. That’s ancient in that sport.
I don't mean focus as a post-collegiate career, I meant so he's not spread thin balancing two sports another year. Physically he has had some issues with it already

They shouldn’t have to. My comment was if CJ is gaining unwanted weight, that’s on him. No excuses.
Okay but when you're not allowed to run and start burning 3,000 fewer calories per day, it doesn't take much. By all accounts he was restricted from practicing and running pretty consistently the last 7-8 weeks.

I'm with Hiawatha on CJ. It would take an exceptional kid to watch every calorie and not follow his appetite. I bet half you dudes were chubby in college.

My chubbiness had no impact on my value to the university.

Kinda bummed with looking at the box score. Luka absolutely pushed their shit in and it wasn’t close to enough.

The team Instagram account had individual pictures of Garza, bohannon and Wieskamp on their story. Seems pretty telling what that means for Wieskamp.

My buddy sent me a screenshot of toussaint commenting somewhere that he "was blessed to play with you"

Yeah it’ll be awful collecting 7 figures to live in Europe. Fucking sounds terrible. He should go to the Muscatine Y for summer workouts instead. He has a key and everything.

He played well down the stretch.
He did, and I wasn't critisizing him. He and Keegan were at least taking shots and not shying away. I fear CJ is always going to be a 7-12 points a game guy that will pass up good enough looks. Great guy to have on a good team, but I feel he'll frustrate us next year.

Ulis, healthy CJ, keegan, Patrick, healthy Nunge is a damn good team, and way better on D. Obviously some big ifs in there though. Toussaint, Connor, Perkins, Sandfort, and Kris main guys off bench.

Ideally we get a grad transfer post and 3&D wing
