    I am somewhere in the middle, it is not a great look, but Fryowa has went off the deep end. I am with drummer just understand the ramifications and reign it in a bit. No biggie.

    Maybe I'm not seeing everything since I don't have Twitter. All I see is them arguing with some guy named Hunter Wilson.

    God forbid high school kids talk before they think. Must be real pieces of shit huh? I'm sure tksirius or Fryowa NEVER did anything like that when they were younger...

    For the record, I am not condoning what they did, as I did not see the original tweets, but they have since apologized for whatever they said. Blowing up on them by calling them "entitled, trust-fund babies" makes you sound just as immature. Grow the fuck up. /end rant

    That was dramatic. BTW, where did you see the apology?

    Learned how to apologize for poor behavior from his dad. He has plenty of experience in that area.

    Unless I'm totally off base, their daddy wasn't a coach of a high major program where a higher standard is expected.

    This from someone who referred to the Iowa team as untalented choke artists. We know how old Connor is - tell us how old you are.

    I read the tweets. Wow can you say pathetic? Apparently the mccaffreys weren't taught how to lose with grace or not say anything if you have nothing good to say. If roles were reversed and Joe said these things the majority of people on this board would crucify him.

    It is about social media. Fran's kids are So. and Sr., he doesn't police them every minute of every second. As you can see from the note Patrick wrote, I'm sure it was talked about when found out.

    Kids are gonna be kids, and you must have your head buried in the sand if you think your kids are perfect *ucking angles. This is how young men grow into adults, they learn from bad and stupid behavior. Is every boy who gets in a fight for basically no reason (either verbally or physically) a POS like you claim? I don't think so, I think you are kind of a POS right now because you can't seem to grasp this simple reality. Kids are going to do stupid things, and then parents will correct them and parent them.

    I can't speak for others, but the point being made was that this was something stupid that was done by high school kids. It's OK to say that was stupid, but you don't make a generalization that it reflects on their character without understanding it's only a part of the picture. The apology for example was a hundred times better than the ones we hear from adults - "I'm sorry if someone was offended". I was taught a lot of things, but I didn't always live up to my Dad's expectations. That's why we forgive people their mistakes.

    Fran is in one hell of a situation here with his kids that there's no way to win so I hope he just embraces it. On one hand his kids are 2 of the best prospects in the state for D1 schools. They commit to him early and the trolls have already started the narrative that they aren't good enough and they only are coming to Iowa because of their dad....but if Fran let them go somewhere else, I feel like those same trolls would be losing their minds because Fran's kids are the best players in the state and he can't even get them to come here.

    Unless Conner ends up like this guy, literally he nor anybody else will care about this in 2 years. Total nonstory.
