I hated watching all 3 of the players I mentioned. I still hate them.The guys that produced the #1 offense in the country are leaving but the guys that played a couple minutes every few games are back and will be far more enjoyable to watch!
This is why you guys should never make fun of cyclonefanatic.
That tweet made me see red this morning. I fucking despise hypocrites who hide behind their "good christian" moniker.This tweet, trying to play the martyr, after all the rumor solely from his side, is such bullshit. I’m sure the media will run with it blaming Fran somehow, or the program in general.
Tell me that isn’t going to wear guys that coach like Fran, in invest in young men the way he does, incredibly thin.Let's not get fucking too crazy here. Fran isn't quitting, he's got 2 sons and another one on the way that will play for Iowa. He also makes $2m+ per year and isn't walking away from that.
Exactly. These guys are 18-22 yr olds playing a game and accordingly all have some degree of dipshittery going on in their heads. Just get some entertainment from watching the games and stay out of the social media mentions.Getting this out of the way - the grown men that tweet angry shit at players are dumb
but man do I cringe at the other end. “Thanks CJ. This dad of three loves the example you set for all Hawkeye fans, young and old, giving it your best and earning your time on the floor. I will be rooting for you wherever you end up”
Goooo fuck yourself
I don’t think we’ve even begun to quantify how devastating this will be for hundreds of and hundreds of young athletes. Young men that might have had the opportunity to develop in to successful individuals outside of a career and sports are going to get chewed up and spit out by this new machineThese super woke dumbfucks don’t realize that in their quest for righteousness they’re going to fuck over the most vulnerable, small schools that give opportunities every year to the very people super woke Rob Howe thinks he’s fighting for.
The only reason to add that is to not take responsibility, he is almost trying to imply that the University of Iowa or Fran is responsible for him ultimately deciding to enter the portal.What does “and with the statement released from the UI this morning” add?
I just checked the stamps and he put his announcement out 3 minutes after Iowa had theirs. Like he was just waiting on them to go then push that it like it had anything to do with his decision.The only reason to add that is to not take responsibility, he is almost trying to imply that the University of Iowa or Fran is responsible for him ultimately deciding to enter the portal.
He's a fucking loser.
CJ always seemed like a good kid and teammate. I am quite surprised at this assholey victim behavior. His character wasn't nearly as good as I assumed.The only reason to add that is to not take responsibility, he is almost trying to imply that the University of Iowa or Fran is responsible for him ultimately deciding to enter the portal.
He's a fucking loser.
It is worse than that. Iowa gives a scholarship when others won't, believe in the players and develop them. Other programs now open the checkbook when a few years earlier they had no interest. Iowa will never play that game, and Iowa will almost always lose.Tell me that isn’t going to wear guys that coach like Fran, in invest in young men the way he does, incredibly thin.
How brutal would that be to spend years pouring in to a young man, only to have him bolt on you because he likes southern weather or has a better chance for a title elsewhere...
I've always hated that guy.I've said something like this before, but one of my issues with all this stuff is that I think a lot of these current guys see themselves as continuing on the legacy of the people in the pictures you posted.
I'm completely good with sports figures using their influence to push policies they believe in, and throughout history that has done a lot of good. But you know the Jordan Bohannons of the world think they're a modern day Jackie Robinson or Muhammad Ali. Like years ago when Adrian Peterson called playing in the NFL modern day slavery. Or a million other recent examples both in and out of sports where I think people believe they're going to get their picture in history books.
Or maybe I'm just a dinosaur and I'm wrong.
Transfer, that's fine. And earn money off your likeness like I've said 100x, but I won't be surprised when viewership goes down.
I browsed the kentucky board earlier today and one poster said CJ couldn’t stop a parked car.Some ammo when somebody tries to say Fredrick was a good defensive player:
Defensive Rating; an estimate of points allowed per 100 possessions. (100 is average, you don't want to be "high" in this metric defensively)
As a team this year:
Defensive Box Plus/Minus
A box score estimate of the defensive points per 100 possessions a player contributed above a league-average player, translated to an average team
