Halo's preferred Iowa Basketball team is ranked 13th in the nation and returned one of the best players in program history and she is already doing what she does.


Cheers to a good season from the team we know is going to be dancing.

Surprised my girls with a trip over today and it was pretty much the highlight of their life.

Yes

We pretty much hit the jackpot.

Sat by tunnel and got to high five entire team and Herky.

Tweet selfie of girls got put up on the video board

Daughters dancing got attention of camera guy and made the video board

Waited around after and Megan came out and was more than gracious with a bunch of fans. They got pic and autograph.

I tweet pic of girls with her, Megan and coaching staff like it and respond so I could show them that.

Drake is good. Jennie is a stud. I’m just not sure if the timing will work for her to ever get the iowa job.

Is it that or nothing?
I have no idea. It would seem odd for such a driven person to get comfortable at a place like Drake, but she has a ton of admin and local support. Iowa has great grassroots girls programs and produces enough talent to win her conference. Plus she is from here and can raise her kids around family. Maybe she is comfortable following her former coach in 5-10 years.

Just looked it up. She is 57 (58 in April). I could see somewhere between 5 and 10.

Congrats, Turtley. We were there as well for my daughters’ school, and I thought the intros were a great way to recognize the kids. I hope she’s doing well.

Thanks Buffett. She is doing great. All the surgeries are in the rearview and she was extremely resilient through it all.

All the athletic programs have been great in regards to that group. Last year a bunch of the football players came to a "carnival" that they put on. AJE was chasing LT3 around the duck-duck-goose circle and Chauncey Gholston was playing bball with LT1. LT2 has a way of getting people (complete strangers) to do what she wants. This guy spent most of that afternoon pretending to be Mrs. Incredible.

The only real help would be someone in a position of power being honest with her and telling her that she has absolutely no future in broadcasting unless she can massively improve.

I think she is a sweet girl, but people are doing her no favors by letting her continue like this.

These are actually some of the best in their class as it’s a highly sought after position. StudentU has been a key recruiting tool for every J school in the conference which has multiple great programs. Off the top of my head the last three kids to have this role at Iowa have immediately landed good jobs at good stations, a couple of whom have already moved on to better jobs.

Poor Maddie will likely break the streak.

I think she'll be fine. Maybe end up at KWWL

Apparently the team flew in to Ann Arbor already, but Michigan is cancelling the game anyway?

Is Megan the most dominant basketball player men’s or women’s to ever play at Iowa?

I'm not sure anyone else is even all that close. Maybe Lester if he didn't tear up his knee but that's probably about it.

Gustafson is incredible to watch. She is so quick to the basket when she's within ten feet of it, and when she's under the basket she gets the ball up and consistently in faster than anyone I've seen.
