Hey, who wants the slow white guy that can't jump or shoot under pressure?

2 minutes ago I almost dropped $55 in the Iowa NIL store for a Riley Mulvey hoodie.

Someone on TOS asked if the swarm should pay Sandfort a nice 6 figure amount to entice him to come back.

Probably the best defensive backcourt Frans had with a decent rim protector that fouls a lot.

With the portal this doesn’t matter as much but in theory this allows Iowa to develop Harding, Pryce, Dembele, Koch and Tadjo at a more traditional pace. Again, the portal fucks this up, but Iowa is set up to be really solid from a roster standpoint for awhile. Not seeing Patrick on that list is so freeing.

Fucking awesome news. Also interesting to see Coleman Hawkins withdrew from the draft but won't return to Illinois.

To some extent true, but I’d guess a year training with the football team would improve that pathetic figure some.
Of course. But you ain’t going from 22 to 36.

Yeah no amount of training is going to improve his vert that much. Maybe add an inch or 2 but he's not a natural hard body and will never be able to jump out the gym

My freshman year at Iowa I was on the golf team (look at me!!) and we started our winter training program with tests like vertical jump and situps and pushups and shit like that and then we tested again at the end of the winter to see our improvement. I remember 2 things from this: 1) My starting vertical was the worst on the team at 17" (I don't recall my final vertical but I'm sure it was the same) and 2) My final situps were like 10 fewer than my starting situps

You being a goddamn specimen at your current age is no surprise.

No decent teams are coming to Carver, our fans don’t show up for bad teams, and the net calculation encourages this type of game.

All these neutral site games are being setup for NET purposes which is stupid.

I don't get it
Fran and Iowa skipped doing a Thanksgiving tourney because Fran needs to take the week off to go watch Jack and Patrick. It's that simple. That is why this game is being set up.

If we're going to play the NET game I'd rather go this route with decent mid major teams than playing a bunch of 300+ level teams to boost the efficiency stats.

Like we won't be doing both.

As much as I was laughing at Iowa states home schedule, ours will be just as bad.
