I still think McAffrey will get Iowa to the NCAA tourney within the next two years. His agressiveness and enthusiasm for recruiting and coaching is night and day compared to what they had with Lickliter.
Regarding Gatens, I predict his only postseason play at Iowa will be the NIT this season.
Oh, and remember how funny it was when Haluska jumped ship and went to Iowa? Exactly. It wasn't. That's why threads talking about how funny it would be to see an Iowa player transfer to Iowa State just aren't funny.
There are comments and threads about dozens of schools and players without a clear reason. Maybe Gatens is going to strong-arm the Iowa AD again- does not want to spend his last year with a ex-felon?
The Hawks are a desperate mess over in IA City.. They are about to take Anthony Hubbard a guy who spent 4 years in Prison for Felony Woundeing with a Fire Arm and Felony Burglary. He is on Parole yikes.... The Other kid Glover they are trying to sign can't get into Boston College, UCLA, Penn st and a couple other schools for academic issues. But he can get into u of i how funny is that....
I feel sorry for Gatens too. I'd have to regret the choice I made if I was him...
Gatens' sister was my nephew's 3rd grade teacher last year. I hear that Matt was really cool about coming to the school and spending time with the kids.
He's still a hawk, but he's not a "Steve Alford Hawkeye". More like a "Dallas Clark Hawkeye". I feel bad for the kid.
As fas as Haluska's transfer not being funny, I know plenty people on the eastern side of the state that thought it was hilarious.
