Than you are a fool.
Licklieter was a horrible recruiter. Phil Jackson couldn't have produced a winning season with the players licklieter was bringing in.
Lick had a ridiculous strategy to win in the big ten. Who give a rats @$$ if it worked in a lower tier mid major conference. Apples to Oranges.
The players he did get did not like him, so we had 2 or 3 players leaving every year.
Fran is superior in every possible way.
This is a pretty common and ill informed take. There was nothing wrong with Licks strategy/system. Wisky has been running a similar system for decades and has had a lot of sucess with it. His system would have worked just fine in the B10 or any other conference for that matter. Licks issue was he couldn't recruit and retain enough high quality players to Iowa to run his (or any other system). The problem was not x's and o's.
