    Our recruiting is awful right now

    I continue to worry about the fact that we have very few recruits with good offers.

    Beating out UTEP, North Texas and Louisiana Tech caliber schools isn't impressive.

    I really think three years from now this will come back to haunt us.

    Re: Our recruiting is awful right now

    I was looking at Rivals.com

    We didn't even crack the top 50 for our 2011 class...and were DEAD last in the Big 12

    Colorado has FOUR commits and they have a higher ranked class than our class of 13

    At ISU, it's more about developing players rather than being able to grab a bunch of top notch talent. (Although you need talent at a lot of skill positions.)

    Re: Our recruiting is awful right now

    I agree. There's no reason that we shouldn't be able to compete with the Florida, Alabama and Ohio States of the world. It's not like they have anything that THE Iowa State University doesn't have to offer.

    As long as iowa takes a lot of the best recruits in the state, it will be tough.

    Re: Our recruiting is awful right now

    We really need an influx of JC talent. Anybody hear how the redshirts are looking thus far? I think we are RSing 4 JC guys this year: Caspers, Nelson, Young, and Givens. They should be comparable, if not better, than Alvarez, Parker, Williams, and O'Connell.

    Re: Our recruiting is awful right now

    Teams like Utah were not built battling for top talent, they were built around one thing and it showed last night in every phase of the game.

    KU under the big man always had a bunch of 3 star guys that played some good ball. Coach Mac made some pretty good players out of non-recruited guys, and so will CPR. If we could sneak in a couple of 4 star guys at skill positions, I'd be good with it. It'll be interesting to see where we end up after signing season.
