Im all for this. Screw us by leaving kid, you don't go anywhere you want. screw us - screw you then.One thing is for certain, catfish, no school is going to articulate that philosophy, even if that's the way they feel. lol I wouldn't be shocked in the least if spite has some role in Bo's decision to block a transfer to some of the schoools with Jarrod Uthoff. On the other hand, I'd be shocked if he actually ever admitted that in public.
Here is my take on it, if a kid wants to leave, let him go...I am the head coach and I fear no one. Jarrod Uthoff is not Wilt Chamberlain but you might think Bo Ryan thinks he is. I mean come on, it is like he fears Uthoff and says ooooh, if that kid transfers to a school that we play, he will hurt us. That says Bo has no confidence in his coaching abilities or his team to me. You think I would be scared of any kid who left my team, heck no...I would want to play him in the future and show him he made a mistake.
Same thing with the ND kid, come on coaches, be men, this is crybaby playground stuff. Iowa let Ben Brust out of his LOI and let him go to Wisconsin, in fact, I don't know of any kid Iowa has stopped from going anywhere. We fear no one. Go play for whomever you want, if you play us, we will beat you and dominate you.
Just ridiculous IMO. Go Blues!
The funny thing is if the kid doesn't want to be back in Iowa with the Hawkeyes, then I think he should go to Creighton...which was not on the list anyway, but given McDermott there and the other guys from last year staying, this would be a formidable team. The other, which was a blocked school, is Marquette.
To be honest, not sure of his abilities, but he was Mr Basketball for the state...still it's Iowa...however, in the past there have been some really good ones. Raef Lafrentz, Kirk Hinrich, Harrison Barnes, etc.
Red Sox totally suck...boo
a co-worker just said the restrctions were lifted.Not entirely. Like I said in my earler post, Uthoff can go to any school that's not in the Big Ten.
last time i listen to a co-worker!That's the spirit, catfish! Keep nurturing that office camaraderie. lol
