redhawk55, what does any of that have to do with Iowa's monetary value? I think you posted on the wrong thread.

It's all he posts about, every thread he starts. Then he says people disagree with him just because they get tired of seeing the same thing posted over and over
this is inregards to the staff getting paid to do a job, this is in direct opposition to this post.
again peolple can't stand the thought of this staff being on par with the pay of other BT Coaches, this is the problem with some posters they make unfounded statements without doing any research and follow along like good little lemmings over the cliff as if it were the gospel truth,
can't help you if I do my homework before making a post
sans the 2005 recruit class - no iowa team has been above 25 by most services since 2001 (ok maybe the 2011 class is right at 25 or so)
I understand the names and the stars associated with them - but that means zippo when compared to the teams Iowa must compete with.
But - stars have become cheaper since Al Gore invented the internet - Iowa's ranking among other schools remain at the low 40 mark every year - and this is the sad part. You don't get it.
and at the beginning of the season all 5 starters on the OL were Iowans
RG Blythe a FR AA and was a 4* and at one point was top 5 at his position
RT Van Sloten
all these kids stayed home, kinda shoots down the myth that Iowa does not keep top talent home.
5* OL Larson the #1 player in the nation out of Atlantic, Iowa. stayed home
really gonna play that way? why?
read my post as a reaction to your post above - and copied below:
the problem with this thought is on 2 points, 1st Gable and Brands have a solid talent pool in Iowa, as it is the #1 sport in the State, they do not have to leave Iowa to fill a 10 man starting Roster.
Then I stated - 5 of the 10 regular starters are from other states.
If you know nothing of the sport, or tom brands you should not have commented on his recruiting efforts!!!
''The SEC, right now, the quantity (of great players) is far greater than the quantity at the upper-level Midwestern schools. It's up to the Big Ten to change that. There's one way to do that: Go out and recruit and get some more depth. But to say that there's not quality football players in the Big Ten, that's not correct. The quantity is the biggest difference.''
-- Urban Meyer
Ohio State currently has 22 commitments but only 10 are from Ohio. Next year, the ratio will probably be be even smaller. That's been a tough pill to swallow for Buckeye traditionalists like me who are used to seeing our recruiting classes having 15 of the top 20 players in the state. I doubt we've ever had a class with fewer than 50% Ohioans in my lifetime, more likely never in the program's history. Ohio born and raised football players have always been at the core of OSU's roster. And it was good enough for us to win B1G titles and BCS bowls and get into NC games but not enough to win our last two, which started the SEC's run of seven consecutive wins. Urban Meyer is upping the ante, not just for Ohio State but for everyone in the B1G. He's willing to concede Ohio's best for a shot at the nation's best.
The recruiting paradigm isn't changing. It's already changed. Trust me on this. It was hard for me to accept, too, but if your options are to get on the steamroller or stand in the road and get run over, right now, Iowa's on the road and you're about to get run over unless Ferentz is willing to change with the times.
Wow, you guys are buying the pablum of the same 'snakeoil salesman' (meyer) that caused
Wisconsin's successful head coach to get away from Ohio's tactics.
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
You need to think before you speak.
Bielema left to "get away from Ohio's" tactics that were born from working in the SEC. If Bielema left Wisconsin to escape Urban Meyer, he just jumped into a pit filled with snakes. At least Urban honored the commitments of players who verbaled to OSU before he was hired, which neither Bielema or Tuberville (Ole Miss, Auburn) haven't at Arkansas and Cincinnati. We're laughing our asses off over that hypocrisy just as I'm LMAO over your post.
