So the big news out of Iowa MBB's Media Day yesterday was probably the new uniforms. But the other big news was probably Jordan Bohannon's beard. And, fam, we need to talk about it because it is pretty great:

That beard? That beard is good. It looks full and it's well-trimmed. Nicely done, JBo.
But what do JBo's teammates think of his beard?
Joe Wieskamp thinks Jordan Bohannon put some dye in his beard last night: He definitely put some dye in that. It wasnt looking like that yesterday. pic.twitter.com/UxdrIhhDeF— Robert Read (@Robert_Read34) October 9, 2019
Look at that shade! Buncha haters. Smells like jealousy to me. They're just mad they can't grow a beard as excellent as Bohannon's.
But is this new beard a bad omen for JBo? He called it a "recovery beard" during his Media Day comments yesterday and it certainly looks like the beard of someone who might be planning to spend the next six months watching SO MUCH NETFLIX as he continues his recovery from off-season hip surgery.
I'm choosing to believe otherwise, though. I choose to believe that this is just JBo taking the next step in his evolution as the sweet-shooting point god of Iowa's offense. As the evidence proves, grow a beard and unlock fearsome scoring potential:
Obviously JBo's beard is the next step in his evolution to UNSTOPPABLE POINT GOD. The evidence is undeniable: pic.twitter.com/otePqMBnLC— Go Iowa Awesome (@IowaAwesome) October 10, 2019
It's just science, folks. So, please, JBo: keep the beard and torch the nets.
