    I was super pumped to go to the Vegas tourney. I'm still going to go, because Vegas, but my optimism for a good season has gone down significantly. Cook, Bohannon, Moss and Baer all gone or out indefinitely. That's 3 starters and another guy who basically played starter minutes.

    I hope Bohannon's recovery goes well for his own sake first and foremost, but also for the sake of the basketball team not being a complete dumpster fire.

    It's better to just ignore him. He's never posted anything positive about any Iowa program. Literally not once. I'm pretty sure he's not an Iowa fan either. I hope he gets banned.

    JBo might be near All American on the "right" team. Glad he chose Iowa as his right team.

    Well shoot.....this is going to make next season even more difficult. Hopefully Joe T. can make positive contributions.

    I am going to buy a powerball ticket as the odds are much better. ;)

    I agree with these sentiments.

    Hopefully we can find a grad transfer point guard who is immediately eligible.

    Fran is way more likely to sign high school senior than a transfer IMO. Think Williams, Daily, etc.

    Assuming Bohannon has to sit out this season, this is what we have lost so far stat wise:

    Points per game: 44.5 (56.8%) of team points
    Boards per game: 19 (53.2%) of team rebounds
    Assists per game: 9.8 (62.4%) of team assists
    Steals per game: 3.6 (58%) of team steals
    Blocks per game: 1.7 (51.5% of team blocks

    Losing 3 starters who had eligibility left hurts bad. At least if Bohannon is out we can hopefully get someone who can shoot some 3s. (Just trying to 1 up Oldhawk in the "no idea how to properly dis a player" department)

    I believe it was you that started the thread about the off-season being a major disappointment for Iowa. Pretty hard for anyone to argue that now.

    Comparing Ferentz to Fran is like comparing apples to toothpaste.

    Very bad scenario: JBO misses next season
    Even worse scenario: JBO tries to come back, fails, and loses his red shirt year.
    I actually hope for his sake, he takes the red shirt and has a good chance to play at the top of his game in the future.

    Talk about tough: The pain this kid must have endured, even with continued shots before games, must have been more than any of us could handle. And, he was still one of the big reasons we won 23 games. Geez.

    No, he's to easy to make an example of. And it's not like he's some thirty year old curmudgeon living in his parents basement. He sounds like he's well into his fifties. That make his unrelenting diatrol even more perplexing.

    Probably throw a full ride scholarship to a guy that plays in intramurals on campus.

    "Happy to get him, really smooth, been keeping an eye on him for a long time."

    Wow just when a guy thinks maybe the annual summer bad news concerning BB has gone away it has come back with a vengeance. Used to ALWAYS be some during the off season. If there was BB news it was never good, but hasn't been anything significant for several years it seems. Craps of him redshirting for following year then next years news will be JW is going pro. Being optimistic and a Hawk BB fan can be challenging at times.

    Well, shoot. If JBo can't play we will have gone in about seven weeks from having five returning seniors to having one.

    Ryan K better be alert for ladders, broken mirrors, black cats, etc.

    The homers will use it as the excuse for why we only win 8 games next year. As if Bohannon would create 15 more wins by being in the lineup.
