Hopefully they get Fredrick back and Wieskamp plays a lot better at home. Win this game and sets up nicely to make a run at the Top 4 seed in the BTT.

I might be forgetting a game but I think the last time I saw Iowa lose in carver for any sport was the street 25 year shitshow against Purdue in early 2018

Having sprained my ankles multiple times, it amazes me how fast these dudes can come back.

That and insane painkillers
He will play if it’s not a high ankle sprain from what others have said. A full week with the treatment they get is an eternity compared to our Pathetic bodies that take 4-6 weeks to feel better

Right. He’s in a *little* better shape than middle aged fat message board men.

Wieskamp's stats home vs. road are pretty telling.

Shooting percentage is 5% lower overall on the road (43% vs. 48%), but mostly his 3 point shooting is way down at 8% lower (34% vs 42%).

Free throw percentage 9% lower (86% vs. 77%). Turnovers way up. Fouls up. Assists down. The only thing he does better is rebound.

The fact he traveled today (let him get on a flight) with no boot is really telling unless he drove up.

How does that compare to other players? Is that an average level of regression?

I think you have to judge it against players on his level and not role players or bench scrubs.

Quick glance shows Garza's numbers actually all go up on the road. Fredrick's go down significantly, maybe more than Wieskamp's, but that is expected for a freshman.

Ha. Now you know why i will be pleasantly surprised if he plays. I stand by my source.
You're such a fucking retard that you forgot you posted that instead of chatting it.

Lol you fucking dork. I am pretty sure Baseballa33's sources are more real than you.

It was a joke. Of course I knew I posted it fucking 5 hours prior.
And I don't know who baseballa is. But my sources helped me win my last bet with you that you probably didn't donate as promised.

Well, that is because you don't have round the clock treatment and trainers at your disposal.
I get that and agree, but I’m still amazed by it. I healed faster when I did it I’m my 20s but it still took me at least two weeks just to walk without a limp. These guys are making lateral cuts on hardwood in a week.

When I did it last year I was ready to just have the fucker amputated.

Just got over one. Close to 2 weeks until I could walk normal again. Over 3 weeks until I finally had no pain and could run again.

5 games left and is the toughest schedule in the entire country.

#9, #10, #11 teams in KenPom back to back to back. #26 and #32 team to finish it up. #14, #17, #20, #19 and #33 defensive teams, and that last team is vastly tougher at home and will be an ugly atmosphere. All the games Quad 1 on steroids.

Every single one of the 5 teams loves to grab and hold and rape and fuck your corpse to death as a defensive strategy. Every single possession to make it extra hard to call a game properly. Lucky for Iowa the refs are in swallow your whistle and call nothing unless a players head cracks open and their brains spill out on the court.

If Fran can pull 2 wins out of that mess with a banged up team I will be really happy and so should everyone else.

At the end of the regular season, we will have played 21 of our 31 games against the top 50, 22 if Syracuse (currently 55th) can sneak in.

Toughest schedule I can ever remember them having.

If we can finish 3-2, whatever happens in the BTT we should get a 5 seed, fuckin minimum.

Q: Was CJ even close today?
Fran: No

Q: Do you have any idea how long he will be out?
Fran: No

This is another example of how there are a minimum of 11 beat writers covering Iowa sports full time and not a single one of them had any update on CJ's injury from when the game ended on Thursday night until the minute Dolph and the official Iowa account tweeted it about an hour before the game yesterday.

Not a single one of them has either built a viable relationship with sources within the program or has work ethic enough to follow up on a major story outside of official press conferences.

They are all fucking worthless.

I think some of this is on the Iowa AD though. They've cultivated an environment where they're going to throw a tantrum if you report anything that isn't off of an official UI press release. Doesn't mean the reporters shouldn't still sack up and do their jobs.

The solution to thugball defense is to flop everytime.

I know that Miles said yesterday that it wasn’t a high ankle sprain, but I’m pretty sure that Pharty had CJs uncle on his show last week and he confirmed it was high and not good

The kind of uncle who has time to do an interview with Pat Harty in the middle of the day may not be the kind who is privy to the most reliable information.

After the game in which Cj got hurt, Fran also said that the sprain wasn't in a good place.

Because he has 15 minutes to do an interview he may not be reliable?
