Seems just slightly more sleazy than most AAU coach stuff.

Maybe they'll finish in 15th next year.
What’s your point? This is a big story.
It's a big story, just not sure it'll have some big impact on the Hawks.
Other than the distraction it creates because the head coach of Iowa has 2 kids that have gone through that program and could have been taped and possibly a 3rd making his way through it. Not to mention his starting point guard and the best recruit Iowa’s had in forever possibly being victims here?

All of this on the same day a reporter asks Fran if his seat is getting hot?

Am I missing something here? The only way I would see a large impact is if Fran or staff knew he was a pervert and knowingly aided him access to kids.

If anything, Fran and others are going to look like victims.

I prefer to have them suffer first. Drag them out to the middle of nowhere and Shoot them in the knee caps First.

Yeah I mean we should probably just ignore this. Everyone saw it coming and it definitely won’t affect the iowa program.
Have you ever tried not being you for once?
Have you ever tried interpreting simple sarcasm? It’s really great.
I did interpret it. You implied through sarcasm that everyone actually did see this coming like it was a known thing.

Do you know how to use sarcasm?

Have to agree with Camel here. I'm thinking there's a pretty large impact on the program at the end of the day from this. Too many kids involved that are close/ incredibly close to the program.
They're probably going to lose the rest of their games this year because of this.

To recap, this is something as of now nobody saw coming.

L. Wade has no idea how to use sarcasm and is flat out stupid and implied "everyone saw this coming" but it is the exact opposite of that.

I also seriously doubt that Fran or AJ Green's dad would knowingly let their kids play in a program or support if they knew the co-director car dealership owner was a kiddie pervert. My guess is that everyone involved on the University of Iowa level is going to look like a victim of a sick pervert.

Of course Fran or anyone with the program knew nothing about this but to think that this couldn't affect the program from the head coach and his kids being victims is a bit naive. If they were victims, a fresh start after a shitty year could very well be on the table.

This is my dougie moment where i make a wild prediction that i can somehow be RATT on.

Fran trusted this guy with his kids. He was clearly a key part of patricks life. It’s fucked up.

I could see this being a reason for Fran to seek another gig.

The problem is that this season is going to make him a tough sell to a fanbase. I would hire Fran in a second to rebuild a dumpster fire but it’s fair to question his upside.

That said, two 4* kids make his profile a little higher.

Yeah I could see him making a lateral move or even a half step lower move.

I wonder how long Fran has had to sit on this. One update I saw was that the DCI asked the other coaches not to share anything until they went public. Wietzel/Fran should proactively address it tomorrow in the postgame, that way reporters don’t ask stupid questions. Something along the lines of “as you likely have heard my family and many others are dealing with some shocking news. Right now our thoughts are with those that were affected and we hope that those responsible will be held accountable. Please respect the fact that I cannot say much more at this time”

I guess it’s also very possible that Fran just found out as well. Clearly Patrick did. But they may have questioned parents without letting the kids know.

huh? Do you think the DCI would ask the parents, "hey did lil Johnny ever say anything about the coach was jacking off by his bed in the hotel?'

and then the parents wouldn't ask the kid?

No I’m saying a courtesy heads up. Questioned was a bad word.

What the fuck is wrong with you guys? How in the world do you go from an AAU guy was a pervert to that being a reason to drive Fran out of his Iowa job?
