I kind of like the fact that they get worked up over us here. Todd, keep up the good work. You've done great here.
Go read the thread the ban guy started and tell some of them to lighten up on the disrespectful bashing of the moderator.
Back to Recruiting. With the new rules change hurt or help? Sophomore offers, Recruiting staffs...
Do you think we should be ruthless also in our recruiting? (serious question) I personally see it as unfair how the conferences have their own recruiting differences. I have never understood how the SEC teams can just come in and sign 30+ guys. Take A&M for example this year. Maybe I don't know enough about recruiting, and I would enjoy a solid explanation on it.
I don't understand how the NCAA has allowed it either. Shouldn't that be a major issue? They seem to be great on busting individual teams and handing out lengthy punishments but they can't even address a whole conference that seems to have an over signing problem.
Any help here? I hope I am not totally missing the boat here.
These here are all very valid points. One key is to make sure that the top talent that is in the Midwest, stays in the Midwest. Just last year, Jordan Diamond, out of Chicago, ends up going to Auburn. Whether or not the truth to the rumor about the $50K, not withstanding...this shouldn't happen. For crying out loud he was the 5th OL in their class, Alex Kozan, who was committed to us, till mommy and daddy got in the way, was the 6th. Neither of them should be playing there.
Keep our own, and then steal from the rest. Thats where to start.
I think one of our fans was trying to say that it was disappointing for a great program like Iowa to have a down recruiting year. I'm sorry if he bothered any of you.
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
Are you off of probation yet?
