September 25, 2023: The Iowa Hawkeyes enter the 2023-24 season much as they have for the past few – with questions. However, to Head Coach Fran McCaffrey’s credit, Iowa has overcome their apparent deficiencies to easily make the NCAA tournament. Two years ago, after losing a great player in Luka Garza, they found another great set of players in the Murray twins.

Well, Keegan and now Kris Murray are gone and in the NBA and Fran will once again try to reload with underrecruited players and a few transfers. It is hard to discount the Hawkeyes at this point so despite the apparent lack of parts, we will assume they have what it takes to sneak back into the NCAA tournament.

If you have a home in Michigan you know the importance of clearing water efficiently away from your home off the roof. Unfortunately, the outdoor beauty of Michigan means you have to deal with leaves and debris that pile up in your gutters. Sometimes, those gutters also can’t keep up with the rain or leave puddles by your foundation.

If you live in the Grand Rapids area (Muskegon to Saugatuck to Rockford to Lowell) contact Kurt Stauffer at the Brothers that Just Do Gutters. (

If you’re anywhere in the metro Detroit area the Brothers have you covered too! ( They are real professionals who will clean, repair, or replace your gutters and protect your home quickly and efficiently with friendly service.
