I'm not a Hawkeye fan, and have proven on here that I will call it as I see it. In the first year of Brands' coaching, yes, some of those things may have been true.
However, since then, I think that he has come light years in how he presents himself and carries himself as a representative of the Iowa team. I personally have the world of respect for him in how he carries himself. In my opinion, and unless I am missing something, he's been nothing but class all year.
Now, and ironically enough, I think that the very claims that gopherphan is making could be much more appropriately directed somewhere closer to home.
