When I got onto the beautiful campus of Iowa in 2008, the Hawkeye basketball team was in year two of the Todd Lickliter "rebuilding" plan. Luckily the Iowa faithful aren't still stuck waiting for that plan to come to fruition.
Although Lickliter didn't have the same success as he did at Butler (131-61 overall as opposed to 38-57 at Iowa), he did provide Hawkeye fans with something...
He was responsible for recruiting 4 of the 5 most hated players on this list.
Some of you may be asking, "Why is he going to be negative and rank 5 of the most recent hated Iowa players?"
It's a warranted question, with two answers:
1. The Hawkeye football team lost to Central Michigan on Saturday to go 2-2 on the season, so in order to prevent myself from going into a deep, cycling depression, I'd rather place my burdens on others by rehashing the past and being a bully.
2. I have been WAY too optimistic about Iowa Basketball lately and I am now starting to think I may be a bit of a jinx.
Though this list is a bit daunting, while reading, just keep THIS smiling face in the back of your head.
