    Is our recruiting situation in bad shape?

    Friend of mine from another Big 12 school compares this upcoming recruiting class to one by Terry Allen in his years at Kansas. Thoughts?

    Doesn't really matter, to be honest. It's very rare that we can get 4* recruits
    I think we are going to go the "EIU" style recruiting: find the 2 and 3* and turn them into solid players. There's no way that we can compete with the Big Boys right now.

    No, it's fine. Do you think we have allowed the commitments of 14 guys we don't want? This is ridiculous. Look at the speed and the frames that they are going to build from. It's not like they are recruiting 6 foot 220 lb. Dends.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I have to trust that the coaches are getting the under the radar guys that will work well in their system. We are just fans, it is their job, their livelyhood, so a miss in recruiting hurts them way more than you or me.

    ISU can obviously beat Texas on the field, but not in recruiting. There are a lot of guys left to be recruited, so there might be some higher ranked guys that give the Clones a second look after last week.

    This...plus Terry Allen couldn't hold CPR's jock when it comes to coaching. So while this class may not have a bunch of stars behind each name I have complete trust the staff knows what they are looking for and will make a good share of these kids into good football players and a couple into great football players.

    Yes. We have failed. We will be lucky to win another game. Unless we hire Greg Davis. Mack lets him eat candy.

    He lets him watch Rudy on his couch while eating popcorn. Sometimes, he lets him coach.

    W need him to redeem our failed recruiting. All he has to do is say "I've been at Texas with Mack Brown" and we will only occasionally settle for those 4-star losers.

    Sounds like a KU (or other non OU or UT Big 12 team) fan trying to cope with ISU about to take the next step in football.
    I have seen posts about how Rhoads is just riding Chizik's recruiting. Never mind the fact that in the eyes of Rivals, Chizik, Rhoads, and DMac recruit about the same.

    What logic, if any, does he base this on?

    Umm...your friend doesn't have a clue what he's talking about?

    Seriously, if the staff didn't want these guys, they wouldn't have offered them seven or eight months early. Simple as that.

    Would your friend describe it as befitting the MAC or the MWC more?
