    Of course not :)

    What's holding up UNI offering Angelo Winkel now that Tschetter seems to be officially out of reach?

    Even in the bizarre, AAU-less recruiting era, Will Tschetter couldn't stay under the radar long enough for Northern Iowa to steal him.

    The Panthers had been considered a front-runner for the 6-8 forward out of Stewartville, Minnesota, for a while. They offered him in April 2019 and had prioritized him ever since. But that doesn't matter as much now. Arkansas, Minnesota, Michigan and Nebraska all offered in the past week.

    This is the rough part of being a mid-major program. You put in the time and resources to pluck an under-the-radar gem, only for a high-major to swoop in late.

    Now, UNI will look elsewhere. It already has one 2021 recruit in Dubuque Hempstead wing Michael Duax, the Register's No. 3 in-state 2021 prospect. It also has an offer out to Cedar Falls power forward/center Chase Courbat, our No. 4 in-state 2021 prospect.

    Bishop Garrigan power forward Angelo Winkel is currently our No. 7 in-state 2021 prospect, and he's due for a bump in our next version. He's a bouncy, 6-9 big who is a legitimate athlete. He's light on his feet and is developing a good enough 3-point shot to keep defenders honest out there.

    He told me this week that North Dakota State has emerged as the school showing the most interest, and he has a Zoom call with them set up for next week. South Dakota, South Dakota State and Nebraska-Omaha were also impressed with him at the state tournament in March.

    Winkel told me his AAU coach remains in contact with Panthers coaches but, as of now, it doesn't sound like UNI is heavily involved.

    So, what's holding UNI up from getting more involved? It could be any number of reasons. Offers and interest are coming more slowly right now because college coaches can't see prospects play AAU basketball, and film isn't always enough — especially if you play small-school competition, like Winkel does.

    Just a reminder for Augie fans (or non-Augie fans who want to watch a fun basketball game tonight), Midco will be showing the 2016 National Championship game at 7:00pm CT tonight.

    Despite Augie being his first offer, I fear Tanner Te Slaa is becoming increasingly unlikely to end up a Viking after garnering an offer from Northern Iowa yesterday...

    Congrats to the Vikes and to Angelo Winkel. Looking forward to seeing what he can do in blue and gold.

    I've been awake for two hours with indigestion. Went to a benefit in Buffalo Lake last night for one of my former football players who has late stages of ALS. Pulled pork was delicious but I'm paying for it now. Tossed and turned, went outside for a walk, finally decided to get on here.
    Please refrain from posting a video clip of indigestion. I’ll take your word for it.

    Bottom line is that yes, getting rejected is never a good thing. I don't know a ton of people that get rejected for anything and think/feel, "Yeah, that's a good look for me."

    That being said, if this gets the administration to reassess how this was handled, it's possible they will adjust things moving forward and pursue future options. Maybe it would be the Summit again, or maybe they'd switch their style up, show that they can provide more value, and pursue a different conference or something. Then again, I can't imagine the Horizon League is desperate to take a school that the Summit rejected (Summit fans would have a heyday with that one), but as NSU4LIFE noted, they still have plenty of time to achieve this goal if 2030 is the plan.
