    who is he supposed to guard?

    as not too many 5 could stop him and he did have 26 steals [4th on the team] 55 blocks [led the team] in 31 games. with the last Hawk player to do better was Uthoff who had 86 as a RSSR. Uthoff as a RSJR had 56 in 34 games.

    Taking over a Big10 championship level team and taking over a team that had Todd Lickliter's son earning minutes is not the same.

    Just look at their football program/coach. They accept mediocrity at Iowa. Except wrestling.

    8-5 Kirk and .500 Fran.

    Don’t think you can compare Kirk and Fran. Their football program has been solid for a long time. Their b-ball program is a joke.

    when he took over Iowa was not a program that high level recruits would even give Iowa a sniff let alone a glance.

    yes its been 10 years and now its paying off as the top 100 4* players are not only sniffing around but they are visiting,

    Uthoff chose Wisconsin over Iowa because of the toxic level around the Iowa BB program. the fan's had all but deserted the program, which affected recruiting.

    Fran not only brought the fans back into the program but he is now getting top recruits to commit, he has had just 2 losing seasons, 3 losing BT seasons
    8-10
    4-14
    4-14
    those 2 4-14 seasons is why he is at 89-94 gee if he had just gone 9-9 in those 2 seasons his record would be 99-84.

    It depends on where you're viewing their football program from. Purdue vs UW. Iowa=mediocre.

    it turned into a joke with Alford and Lickliter has their HC's, Fran has turned Iowa into a good team and it is getting even better. with these now on the roster
    SR Garza top 100 4* by ESPN 4* by Rivals
    RSJR Connor top 100 4* by ESPN 4* by Rivals
    JR Wieskamp top 100 4* by ESPN Top 50 4* bu Rivals
    RSFR Patrick top 100 4* by ESPN top 100 4* by Rivals
    RSSR Jordan 4* by ESPN 3* by Rivals
    SO Toussaint 4* by ESPN 3* by Rivals
    FR Ulis 3* by ESPN 4* by Rivals
    that makes 8 4* players going into the 20-21 season that's a major improvement over what he started with,

    hmmm never knew finishing in the top 25 = mediocre. the only reason there is doubt about Iowa this season is because QB Stanley graduated so that must mean that Iowa can't compete any more. this is funny as they had 13 RSFR & 8 FR play last season.

    In the last decade...

    10+ win seasons
    UW - 7
    Iowa - 2

    In Final AP Top 25 Rankings
    UW - 8
    Iowa - 3

    Now I know shitty programs like IU/PU would kill for those Iowa numbers, others call them mediocre.

    Message board rumor from a fella that supposedly knows Christie's family its 80% MSU 20% the field unless MSU screws up he is theirs...so basically nothing of substance yet, but sounds good for them.

    rumor is we are the leaders in the clubhouse.

    Would be our first recruiting win I can remember over Duke, and what a player to have it happen on. Number 1 SG in the country.

    My point is its hilarious that you think this "but he is now getting top recruits to commit" When your latest recruiting class is this... Your recruiting is Mountain West style for this cycle. Its trash

    #165
    #301
    #315
    #316
    #405

    now lets look at the decade before that when Wisconsin was Iowa's bitch even going back to the Fry years when at one point he was 13-1 vs Wisconsin.

    its funny how it took some Ex Iowa coaches to at least turn Wisconsin into a winner.

    He has dropped in the rankings...#4 SG and still really good.

    Depending on which rankings you look at.

    This would be a monster win for msu, sort of seems like duke backed a bit off christie though. Seems like keels is their top sg target now.

    Yeah Duke isn’t going full force for him right now, hopefully they don’t swoop in at the last minute if they don’t land Keels like so many other recruitments.

    Christie would be a great fit. Sometimes you get 5 star guys who come in and want to take all the shots and are super ball dominant, but Christie is just the best “pure” shooter in the class supposedly and could immediately improve an already looking to be stacked 21-22’ MSU team.

    Why don't you just save yourself the time and not? You're going to post a book, and no one will read it like usual.

    How he ranked in comparison to his teammates means nothing when your team doesn't play defense.

    Congrats on Liam! That's a special picture. Make sure you keep it safe. My 18 year old daughter is headed to college in the fall (hopefully) and still has her 96 year old great grandfather (on my wife's side). We and she know we are very fortunate. Congrats again.
