Give it up dude. It wouldn't matter if I was an obese 400 lb couch potato. I'd still have every right to make the observation that someone that is getting a free ride to college to play basketball is not quite in basketball shape yet.
And... I'm not the only one on here that made that observation. What if Hoiberg makes the same observation... are you going to start calling him names too?
Woah, relax buddy. I never said anything other than making a point about how jogging long distance doesn't = being in basketball shape. Your fight is with someone else, I agreed he looked worn out. But that attrition is something that builds over the season. Come conference play, he will be just fine.

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
I don't think some of the guys are in great shape, but I'm ok with letting some or them play their way into shape. They'll be in shape when it matters.
Booker was not good today. He has no instincts in the post. He'll be an important player for ISU, but he's a good example of why recruiting bigs can be so difficult.
Long looks good. Reminds me a bit of Tasheed Carr. Size, PG skills, decent jumper. He seems like a guy that would relish going into Phog Allen. Carr didn't really get good until he left ISU, but I see some similarities.
