There are no words to describe Van Coleman's level of incompetence and self-proclaimed importance. He is a Tavern Hok of the worst sort and living proof that anyone can start a blog or website and call themselves a journalist or expert on some topic.
I once saw him throw a complete and total hissy fit worthy of an 8 year-old girl because someone moved his card table like three feet from where he wanted it at a basketball camp at Drake. "...AND I HAVE TO DO A LIVE REMOTE IN FIVE MINUTES! FIVE MINUTES!"
Van is a huge Hawk homer and his twitter pic reminds me of a pic you see on a funeral pamphlet.
I've seen him play... he's top 10 in the state of Iowa... or perhaps the city of Des Moines. - NOT NATIONALLY... give me a break.
Guys... calm down... surely Morris and Thomas are on the "Best of the Rest" list...
He doesn't even have Andrew Wiggins on the list. It might be because he reclassified recently, but still. What a joke.
At the bottom, it says copywrite 2011. Here is an "updated" list (still from 2011) that has Matt Thomas at 41 and Morris at 93. Wiggins is #1 and Jok is #147.
Class of 2013 Pre-Season Top 150
Went to his basketball camp in the late 80's. guy was a joke back then. Jok may turn out to be a good player, but if there is usually an intense recruiting battle for such talent, don't recall that being the case instate or out of state.
I thought I recently read that Matt Thomas(sp) was ranked 32. Don't know if that was overall or at his position but if he has Peter Jok at number 10 and it's an updated list he must be posting this from his local watering hole.
Van Coleman is a moron. Anyone who buys his lists is dense.
is this the guy that ranked his own son very highly...who ended up averaging 2 pts/game at UNI. LMAO.
