Well, I guess that settles it. Fran and a BYUesque roster is the most we can realistically hope for.
not what I am saying at all. I’m saying that new coach would have brought in a lot of the same kids.

People have lost their minds. We are talking about a program that averages 21 wins per season an consistently finishes in the top half of the conference as if it were the worst team in the Big Ten and can't compete against anyone.

Chris Jans, Craig Smith, or Ben McCollum show up at Iowa tomorrow. You don’t think they would recruit and sign:

2016 local Rivals150 3* with offers from Creighton, UNI, and Wichita as a HS freshman

2016 Rivals 3* Iowa Mr Basketball

2017 Rivals150 4* DC POY big man with offers from most everywhere

2017 Rivals150 4* Iowa Mr Basketball/Gatorade POY runner up combo guard

2018 Rivals Top 50 4* Two time Iowa POY

2018 Rivals 3* Kentucky POY with offers from Xavier, Cincy, others who will accept a 4 for 5

2018 Rivals150 3* Indiana Runner Up Mr Basketball

2019 Rivals Top 100 4* Mr Basketball runner up

I would argue that he would possibly, or even likely, not recruit Bohannon or Nunge but I would bet everyone else is on the roster.

And fuck you for making me sound like Kilroy!!!!

If anyone has some time on their hands I recommend a visit to the DME web site, we may have been really fortunate re signing the Murray twins.

fwiw clemson was high on nunge's potential and wanted him for a visit to close on their offer.

Not sure we have the same understanding of the word fortunate.

Depaul has a lot of talent and shot out of their minds early. A couple of good Iowa teams lost unbelievable games early in the year (Augustana and Campbell). Hawks will be fine.

Link? My search did not fulfill the expectations you just dropped on me.

Nope, a different coach would have recruited the exact same players...not any of the hundreds of other players with the same or better credentials with a different skill package resulting in a different roster makeup and strengths.

Somehow, Dr Tom was able to avoid signing Iowa Mr Basketballs like Adam Spanich, Justin Wessel, David Newman, and Eric Pothoven despite them being what would have been 3* or even fringe 4* recruits with other D1 offers.

this comment would make sense if Fran offered Mike Jacobson, Brady Ernst, Luke McDonnell, or David DiLeo.

I'm 35 and I've never watched an Iowa team win a conference title, we've gone 3 coaches without a Sweet 16, there is no such thing as a huge risk when it comes to Iowa basketball.
This is bullshit. Iowa won the 1996-1997 Big Ten Championship and it's about time that we and everyone else start recognizing it.

Hang the banner, Barta.
