While we collectively stand on the precipice of football season we sometimes forget that there are still those schools whose athletic lives revolve around all things hardwood. Although I'm sure that most of us are just chomping at the bit to get our first look at the inaugural season of Frandamonium!, there is now another Big Ten defector joining the ranks of Fred Hoiberg's first Cyclone squad in addition to Chris Babb and Royce White. Take it away KJ!
It's bad enough that Iowa basketball has been reduced to a program more-or-less assured of losing its best player to out-of-state institutions every few years
but now, apparently, the cast-offs from our conference mates are making a bee-line for Ames. Clearly Coach Fran has no control over this as these players weren't going to transfer within the league but seriously...Iowa State?!? Is Johnny Orr still there? Did Wayne Morgan get these kids tremendous deals on satellite television? Honestly...
