    I can see KF trying to sell that to the administration, but getting overruled or given an ultimatum.

    Dabo stepped in it pretty good himself this week. He made a self serving, heavy handed statement basically seeing African Americans as a means for him to win championships and get rich, with little other use for them.

    “IF” this story is true. Much like #metoo, probably 90 true stories, 10% money extortion and hysteria. I refuse to believe every women and I won’t believe every player.

    The recruiting trail is the issue. The major issue going forward. I don’t know how Iowa gets another out of state black recruit with a ferentz in control. It seems impossible

    It was a hard sell to get black athletes to Iowa before all this just imagine if this unravels the way it has the potential too.

    I realize there are far more important things at play here, but just imagine 3-9 seasons and the ISU game being our Super Bowl.

    The whole thing is disheartening and blows.

    I didn’t make a comparison to Penn St. I just said that something like that remark would stop someone in their tracks that were giving you hard time. You gotta man up to people who chastise you or you are forever gonna play that victim card.

    This is a problem. people are more concernerd about recruiting and attracting the AA Football players, having a football team than dealing with the problem at hand.

    This is going to have a butterfly effect that unfortunately are going to hurt others down the road. Nationally I can see this affecting colleges everywhere. White coaches could be careful about offering scholarships to black athletes. So maybe 200-300 scholarships end up going to more white kids every year. The black athletes end up at smaller schools and not get the training or opportunities afforded them at a bigger university. Nationally more coaches will be booted and the game starts to suffer. All this because four dirty cops killed a black guy, which is a tragedy itself. Which does not have a damn thing to do with sports. Everybody forgets, this is about cleaning up the police. We need to concentrate on that issue. From that others can learn from that and adjust on a personal level. But I think it’s wrong to start calling people out that have nothing to do with the police. Let’s fix one broken thing at a time! It starts when the police are held accountable for killing all people and keep getting away with it! Then and only then can we deal with the other issues.

    it’s a huge problem, how about starting with recruiting the athletes already in the building to stay and give KF a chance to change things.

    I stated that there were more important things at play here.

    Totally agreed. I would probably go ahead and fire Kirk right now and try to get Lovie or Turner Gill just so we can get ahead of the issue.

    No I didn't say it and message boards for other schools are saying it PSU, MSU and OSU fans didn't see it at their schools and collectively we did.

    At this point and time this may be as big or bigger in the eyes of others. Certainly in the eyes of recruits.

    This is a problem. People reading something, then saying they said the complete opposite of what they said.

    I am glad Iowa took this step. After Dabo swept the Asst calling his players the N word and no one batting an eye, at least we are stepping up and helping the cause.

    If Clemson players start talking, we showed everyone we were ahead of the curve. You know this isnt just an Iowa problem. This action, however extreme it gets, will make Iowa look good in the end.

    We took care of the problem. We are indeed interested in helping the black student.

    I know if someone said something to me when I was somewhere where I was the majority, it would feel different than it would if someone said the exact same thing to me where I was a minority. If you already feel a little out of place somewhere, you are bound to get more offended at things. I'm guessing a lot of the black people who went through the program recognize that. Some maybe didn't. We have to remember that only one guy is completely against the program right now. All the others that are talking are just pointing out issues that need addressed.
