So some on here will still say there is a chance......
I mean I still get the side of it when people say "well yeah that's what he has to say when asked because he's verbally committed".. Just figured I'd post it because it's been talked about enough.

I'm not going to *hope* we get him and be let down. But I'm also not going to act like these things never happen and there is 0 chance.
 
Kofi down low, along with Georgi and January allows for a completely different defensive approach. The helping off of shooters everyone is up in arms about right now isn't needed with a group of capable 5's led by Kofi.
That was a similar thought I had in the game thread. Kofi's defensive presence in the paint would have changed the dynamic of the game in the first half. Iowa was able to do anything they wanted inside in the first half that*I think* led to their confidence in the second half to make everything they threw up toward the rim.
 
I'm watching Kofi, too. Wow he is big! He does seem a little sluggish. Hard to judge how good he is when no one gets him the ball. Can you imagine Fletch whittling him down to a lean, explosive 260. I too will be watching Christian Brown now that I know number he is wearing.
