It's been two years since coach Todd Lickliter took over at Iowa, and he's essentially right back where he started.

Lickliter said Friday that starting guards Jake Kelly and Jeff Peterson and reserve forward David Palmer plan to transfer. The announcement comes two days after junior Jermain Davis announced that he will to transfer to Minnesota State, a Division II school.

The departures of Kelly and Peterson, who would have been juniors, and Davis and Palmer, both of whom have one year of eligibility left, leave Iowa with just seven players and recruits Eric May and Brennan Cougill.

I meet all of the requirements except I have a high basketball IQ.
So, technically, I'm too good for the team.

:sigh:

Bummer for Iowa. Jake Kelly was a pretty good player. They'll be on the bottom of the Big 10 next year for sure.

Poor Lickliter. He was great at Butler, but hasn't had any success since. I wonder where Kelly will go transfer to. He's from my hometown, so maybe he will come to IU?

Rumors are ISU because his father lives in Terre Haute.

Well, not the absolute bottom. IU will be better and Iowa will be considerably worse. They may be the IU of this year and win only a game in conference.

He's going to Indiana State. He has a friend going to Rose Hullman and he wants to be closer to home and his dad after the death of his mom.

You mean players don't enjoy playing on a team that holds the ball for 30 seconds and scores 40 points a game? Shocking.

Lickliter "style" of basketball makes me want to kill something.

I've said it before...the guy is probably one of the nicest guys, but my goodness, you can not play "butler" basketball in a major conference.

Hahaha. Yeah, at least your football team can hang with good teams. Mine is in for a few years of awfulness before a surge of mediocrity.

I doubt he's going to get many real good recruits with his style of play, so I bet Iowa will be below average as long as he stays. He's going to attract average 3 point shooters, and he'll have a team full of Devan Bawinkel's. I miss Alford.

Sure you can, but you have to have the players to do it, and Iowa never did. Lickliter was never really given a chance to create his own system or recruit his own players because he walked into a team in 2007 that Alford had already put together. This season was his first chance to recruit and those players are all leaving. If Iowa gives Lickliter a chance, he can turn Iowa into a much better team, but 2 years is not long enough to establish a program.

From ESPN.com (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4207470)

Guard Jeff Peterson is transferring from Iowa to Arkansas.

The Razorbacks confirmed the transfer on Tuesday.

Peterson averaged 10.6 points per game for the Hawkeyes last season and Arkansas coach John Pelphrey says he's a good addition to the Razorbacks' program.

Peterson will sit out a year before being eligible for the 2010-11 season. He started 25 games for the Hawkeyes as a sophomore in 2008-09 but missed the final seven games of the season with a hamstring injury.
