I'm aware he's not going to Iowa. I just think it's funny that the thread started by poking fun at a kid that blew up like this.

A front line of Chet and Patrick going into East Lansing would be....interesting.

It really feels that as a program, Iowa has paid their skinny white dork dues, and kind of deserves this one.

FWIW I am not sure Sandfort could commit to iowa right now. That said I would be surprised if he’s not a husker based on what I heard this weekend.

BTW the guy I was talking to (who is recruiting him for another school) says he’s an elite shooter. And it’s wasnt PJ Fleck.

He looks like an elite shooter in his videos. I've heard he doesn't do much else.

It will be fun to revisit the Chet posts in five years

Sounds like Iowa State is getting more involved in recruiting the Waukee duo.

The one positive thing that the 2020 recruiting flameout that Fran had is that I will never pay more than passing attention to any future Iowa recruiting. It has been 10 years of Kakert or Howe and then Bain articles about how Fran is totally in on 30 different 4* and 5* players and blah blah blah blah....

Fran then somehow pulls out of his ass the nephew of a guy he knows from Kentucky that is lightly recruited and wanted to come in as a greyshirt/redshirt and everyone gets pissed and then forgets about and writes off and out of nowhere suddenly he is better than most 4* players as a freshman.

We all bitch and moan about the Murray Twins and somehow they will end up being All-Big Ten.

Keep winning and I don't care who the fuck Fran gets.

Kakert and Co. haven't got a clue when it comes to recruiting. They blather on and on but have zero insight.

I sort of don't blame them, mostly because it doesn't seem that Fran really has any clue when it comes to recruiting a lot of times lately.

He is chasing these 4*/5* guys and letting himself get led on (as he sort of has to do) and then grabbing the actual players that sign after recruiting them for a few weeks.

Fran has to be better at closing, but he no doubt has an eye for talent (except for the horrendous 2014/2015 classes).

What is the math again for 2020/2021?

1 open scholarship with Kreiner / Evelyn done and Till likely coming off scholarship. That makes 4 open spots for 5 signees. My guess is Pemsl gets sent packing. Fran might let Till keep his scholarship and put one of his kids off but I doubt it.

Then the following year it would be Bohannon and Garza gone for sure. So I guess they will sign 2-3 players for the 2021 class.

Connor will go off scholarship on my opinion. I don’t know if there would be any consideration to the fact that he would likely be in grad school instead of undergrad.

Insert in state tuition jokes here.

Hard to fault that. If he has the credits to graduate, and he wants to enjoy the pay and the lifestyle of being a stud on a first division euro team, and, assuming he's single, bang models like the ones in this ad, why the hell not.



(the abarth is a riot on the track -- though the position is way too upright and the pedal reach is a joke, but that's kind of the point -- but, it is still a "hairdressers car;" Haloman would not be caught dead in one)

Luka is playing at national player of the year level, but we are 10 games in. He isn't going anywhere unless he gets a 1st round promise.

He isn't going anywhere.

That qualifies as passing attention for me. I'm talking about giving a shit who the recruits are until they actually commit.

Frans recruiting approach is probably fine for what Iowa is. Fans just have to understand seasons like 2 years ago will happen every now and then because of it.

Since Goat is too lazy to do it himself, I’ll fire it up. We’ve gotta have one eventually.


LATFG!!!!!
This dude had 12 blocks while blowing out the #2 team in the country tonight. Didn’t realize he plays with Jalen Suggs.
