I presume this is directed to me as I mentioned it above.What the connection to being big Hawkeye fans? Did parents go Iowa?
Thank youI presume this is directed to me as I mentioned it above.
I’m not certain but suspect it’s more likely his parent’s are from NW IA, grew up Hawk fans, and Sioux Falls is a really cool, pro business, fast growing community nearby where many NW Iowans locate.
I have a former business associate who is pretty connected up there - a big Hawk fan herself - same situation. They’re all over up there is what she tells me. IA is the de facto high major college team for SE SD - not so much MN and NE.
IA has pulled Greenway & Reiners from there to name two. Probably more I can’t think of. Krabbenhoft almost came here but decided to play for a contender in Ryan rather than a pretender in Alfraud.
TOS reporting that JT Rock will visit Iowa next week.
The timing is interesting, too. It’s during a period when a lot of the focus is on getting 2023 kids on campus. If the staff is putting time and effort into hosting a 2024 kid, It makes me wonder if a commitment is possible during Rock’s visit.Another unofficial visit, where he pays his own way? If so, at least the drive from Sioux Falls, SD is not too bad.
What's encouraging is this is at least his 2nd visit to Iowa City; he also visited on Sep 4, 2021 (Indiana football game).
