    KM gets the fourth pick

    Ivey has star potential, but also the ability to be out of the league or forgotten in 3 years. Keegan has such a high floor, it's all dependent on what you are looking for. Yes, the league is made of stars, but all good/great teams have stars along with good all around players to make the team...

    Starting 5

    I could see Bowen starting very early if not to start the season. I still like Sandford coming off the bench for scoring/shooting as we don't have much that is proven other than the projected 4. I also would imagine less minutes used from the bench than most years unless a few players really...

    Who went to spring scrimmage and what are the big news items

    Yes, but they were also playing with the 2's and 3's on offense so it balances out some. Also it seems Labas was mostly throwing to walk-ons. Hopefully they all got some reps this spring with the 1's but I'm not confident they did.

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    Actaully Ash's sholly was anounced April 29th and there were still many potential impact transfers announced in May or later. So it wasn't like there weren't much better options out there by the time they gave it to Ash. Maybe they didn't have a chance at those left over, maybe they didn't...

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    As I said in a later post when someone made a similar point, it's not guaranteed that whoever got Ash's scholarship would be the 12th man. Maybe they would have cracked the top 8 or better. Just taking a chance on someone with that possibility would have made it worthwhile to try someone with...

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    I have no idea how hard they tried, but it's hard to imagine there weren't many players out there better than Ash, who by the way, was given his scholarship at the end of April so not far from this time last year. There should have been others still out there to go after. We never really heard...

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    Who's to say that 12th scholly ends up being the 12th player. That was the point of my post. If we gave the 12th scholly to a legit player, it doesn't mean that person is our 12th man on the team. Maybe they offer more than some of our top 8-10 and become a contributor and make the needed...

    Any one of our regulars could have/should have played better against Richmond and Iowa wins, sure. If we had given that 12th scholly to a legitimate player, it's possible they could have contributed some in that game that could have made the difference. I would rather start the season with 12...

    Any value he provided at the end of the game for fans or announcers was more comedic than anything. I doubt the Big 10 or Iowa gained any fincancial value from his appearances.

    I'm sure some could have. Ash may be pushing the envelope. I'm not sure how far down the college level still give scholarships, so maybe. I'm OK with you not taking my opinion seriously. Also, most Iowa walk-ons seem to have connections, so that doesn't necessarily mean they could be...

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    It's a stretch to credit Ash for generating any part of the millions of dollars for the school from TV money. I know Fran makes that decision; I just thought it was a bad one. I would have rather he let him transfer as he originally intended to and see if he could find somewhere else to play...

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    To each their own, I guess. Most students at Iowa have to pay for schooling, so why not him? If he's not deserving of a scholarship on ability or potential, why give him a charity scholly?

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    Kingsbury probably was this year, but we don't know yet. I suggested at the time that they just keep the scholarship open and save the dept some money. They seemed to be going through some cuts not too long ago. Why waste athletic dept money on a scholly that isn't needed or being used for a...

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    Calling Ash your best walk-on might be pushing it too. I have no problem with rewarding a walk-on with a scholly if they have been or will be a contributor on the floor, but don't see the justification for an obvious end of the bench player. I don't see him getting a free ride anywhere else...

    You got me pegged Rusty. I couldn't possibly have played on a high level team if I don't think you should give a charity scholarship to an end of the bench player. I'm sure Ash was giving Iowa's guards a good look at how Big10 guards would be defending them in practice. I commend him on...

    Jordan Bohannon in 3-Point Contest in New Orleans

    Someone needs to punch Davison in the balls in the 2nd round. $10 says if he is going to lose in this round he'll kick his leg out to the rack and fall down for a do-over.

    Josh Ogundele in the transfer portal

    Are we really going to gloss over this weak argument. Ogundele's 10 minutes against Purdue this year were more meaningful than anything Ash has done all year. WS stats are meaningless if every minute played are in the meaninless part of a game. Ogundele deserved a scholarship at minimum for...
