    Any word on recruits?

    Last year the staff had an incredible closing % for recruits that came in for a visit. Any rumors regarding whether we got some commitments this weekend?

    It would make the weekend much better if we ended up with a defensive lineman.

    Hope they didn't come this weekend to check us out or else our closing % is probably way down.

    I really don't care unless they are JUCO's. You think were bad this year, wait till next. We need help now.

    ALL of last year's recruits saw it, standing on the sideline--aside from a couple that didn't qualify.

    I know that at least a handful of jucos were at the game--along with at least one committed high schooler (no, this isn't premium info), but my horrified reaction is that they took something good from when the crowd was loud...and the rest of the time, that...plenty of playing time is available.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    We had two JUCO D-Linemen visiting. Rony Nelson will become eligible next year too, so that should help.

    Re: Any word on recruits?

    I'll say it again. We screwed up royally not having a bunch of recruits the Tech game.

    Will be interesting to see if we salvaged anything at all this last weekend by pulling a commit or two.

    You must not have stuck around for ISU's final TD.

    Re: Any word on recruits?

    They almost committed until all hell broke loose in the second quarter and the fans left.

    The other site has a couple of good stories up this evening. I won't give away the details, but it's amazing how little the visitors care how the team does. And in this case, that's a darn good thing!
