Yep. And it will only be about feelings and will pose no question as to why the university chose not to retire Roy’s number. Maybe sprinkle in some light racism speculation.Harty and Howe are going to race to capture this "sensational story" and make sure it runs on Friday or the first day of the tourny.
It was a no win situation forced by Roy facing death. Retire the number a year after domestic assault and be completely insensitive to the climate of the time. Don’t retire it and face former players and family who feel the all time leading scorer was disrespected. Probably did the right thing other than framing Duez Henderson’s jersey as a keepsake.At some point Barta is going to be forced to just tell the truth. Roy Marble just wasn't the type of person or player to deserve his number retired.
retiring the jersey would be great but I would prefer they bring him back to life.Apologize...great! But why would he say he intends to "make things right" unless he will be retiring his jersey/number? That's clearly what Devyn and the family want...but I can't see that happening.
Because now it’s a pain in his ass. It’s not like anyone thinks that when Barta showed up he was like, “I know what I’ll do, not retire Roy marble’s number...” you fucking moronwhy does anyone think that Barta gives a fuck whether or not his jersey is retired?
that makes no sense.Because now it’s a pain in his ass. It’s not like anyone thinks that when Barta showed up he was like, “I know what I’ll do, not retire Roy marble’s number...” you fucking moron
so why would Barta have any strong opinion on it? Since Barta arrived at iowa, marble has scored zero points and been arrested a dozen times, give or take. Why did neither of the previous AD’s do it?Not sure the comments about Marble having left Iowa 20 years before Barta arrived mean much. I would guess that often the AD that decides to retire a jersey was not at the university when the player played. Athletics history is absolutely something within the purveyance of the AD.
