He, Dru, and Brown would have been fun to watch them play together. But one of the reasons for his lack of playing time at Iowa is that he couldn't score. As we all know as Ace's fans that can be quite a liability.

Tom, looks like we posted at the same time....looks like we pretty much agree :lol:


haha, yep, good to see I wasn't totally out in left field! Glad someone else noticed that.

Wow,I would have loved to have had Christian. If you can be the starting point guard at a Big Ten school like Iowa for the first five to six games he's got to be good

The most important position we need to fill on this team is a “closer.” We simply don’t have one. Last night I was watching Auburn play and the announcers were discussing how good Bruce Pearl was closing the deal on recruits. He just recruited 7 of ESPN’s top 100. That’s amazing to get that many on one team.

I didn’t say he was a coach to be admired and followed. In fact I don’t particularly like him all the way back to his days at USI. But the point is he knows how to get the recruits and we have far to many go elsewhere. Programs such as Butler, Xavier and even Gonzaga have shown us the way but we have closed our eyes.

With all that recruiting (cheating), what championships does he have to show for it at the D1 level? Good recruiter, terrible coach
