Where Are They Now? Jeff Moe

[ 1 ] September 26, 2010 |

You might remember Jeff Moe as the fist-pumping, floor-diving, 3-point shooter on Iowa’s late-1980s teams.

Moe should also be remembered for his 1,248 points (16th best in Iowa history) and his teams’ 95-38 combined record (.714 percentage).

Moe married a Sioux City woman 18 years ago, and they live in his native Indianapolis with son Peter, 7. Moe, 44, runs a successful business and has relatives who farm in Iowa.

What do you do for fun these days?

I help my son in all his sports — football and basketball.

Do you keep in touch with old teammates?

I speak with Les Jepsen and Mike Morgan once a week. I told (Mike) we should start some type of website or at least a blog to keep all the ex-players in the loop to help the basketball program.

Ever get back to Iowa City?

Not very often. I will start taking my son to a few games in the future.

Best memory? Biggest regret?

I will always remember how well we were treated by the fans and the school. Even if we just rode the bus to Ames for a game it was always first class.  … Biggest regret was not body slamming (Michigan coach) Bill Frieder in Crisler Arena. They were killing us and Glen Rice was coming in for a dunk, so I gently grabbed him so the team would not have to watch the dunk on tape for two months … Frieder called me every name in the book. We beat them in Iowa City by 20 points the next game.

Can Iowa men’s basketball turn it around?

(Success) can happen again at Iowa. We just need to start scoring 90 points a game and winning. Once you have the talent, the discipline problems will also go away.
