    It could have more to do with those teams seeing and preparing for him. 8 of his offers were from teams Iowa played last year (6 B1G, ISU and OR).

    Hope he lands somewhere that will work for him. As a Hawk, there were games when he was hitting and Fran would rotate him out and you had to wonder WTH. If that was his displeasure, I could sure understand him wanting to transfer. On the other hand, there were games where he just looked lost on offense and defense. Those games I get Fran rotating him out. My guess is wherever he ends up, we will see similar results from Moss.

    I wish Moss the best and hope he does well wherever he ends up. However, if people think he's magically going to turn into a new player they're being naïve. Moss is what he is and that's a guy who can occasionally light it up from deep. He's not a good defender. He's not much of a threat to take it to the hoop. There are too many times where he's so passive on the court that you forget he's out there.

    I would certainly prefer to have him on the team this season, but people thinking that because a lot of teams have interest in him means he's a better player than he really is are mistaken. This is silly season. There are a lot of teams needing players and not very many quality ones out there. Of course the players that aren't terrible are going to have a lot of interest, especially when they don't have to sit out a year. Demand far exceeds supply and that's what you're seeing with Moss.

    Really? That’s what you get from that, nice try but that don’t mean anything...

    Do you think any of these schools would be interested in Connor?

    And if he decides to go to ASU, Bobby Hurley isn't exactly a picnic.

    It would be hard to beat your perspective. He might of been concerned with Fredrick though.

    “He really wanted to stay close to home,” Mike Moss said. “But he didn’t want to disrespect Iowa fans by getting back in the Big Ten. He has a fan base for life with that school. Iowa State was the same. He couldn’t go there either because of that. He also has all the respect in the world for Coach McCaffery.”

    There's tribalism in politics, there's tribalism in sports too.

    I struggle writing this because I don’t like to be too critical of an individual player (I will call out a team as a whole) at the college level. I don’t think I am being overly harsh in stating this, though, so here goes.

    I am perplexed as to why KU would even have him visit. I like him and will pull for him, but I never saw him play the kind of defense one time (maybe that is an exaggeration) that is a requirement virtually every time the other team has the ball at KU. If you don’t play D at KU, you don’t play for KU. It is that simple.

    I would think Self could watch tape and realize that. Am I wrong? Does he play solid and intense defense?

    Maybe what other coaches think of Fran s ability to develop players is differeny than ours.

    There's not much time left for developing.

    What games were you watching? Moss was definitely our best defender.

    Wieskamp stopped his man from driving in open space more times in one year than Moss did in three.

    I didn’t say he wasn’t our best defense of player. What I said was, “I never saw him play the kind of defense one time (maybe that is an exaggeration) that is a requirement virtually every time the other team has the ball at KU.”

    I live in Kansas City so I’m fairly familiar with KU. My question stands. Has anyone seen the kind of defense from Moss that one would expect to see at Kansas?
