    How does Iowa's Situation affect ISU recruiting?

    Any thoughts on the impact of the Iowa City situation will have on ISU recruiting. Are there many kids choosing between Iowa and Iowa State? I got to believe Rhoads and company are spinning this to their benefit.

    I bet there's less of a situation than being rumored.

    Re: How does Iowa's Situation affect ISU recruiting?

    At this point in time, it doesn't. Ferentz can spin it as a couple of bad eggs (Arob and DJKilo) that have been taken care of and Hampton leaving because of too many injuries.

    Unless something breaks this morning at the presser, it's business as usual over in IC.

    On a side note, the lack of discipline may encourage some kids to play for Iowa. Be and act as stupid as you want to be and you will only miss a game or two, if that. And most likely it will be a pre-season game against Western Nobody.

    19 players in 13 months being wrongly accused by the ICPD didn't seem to hurt them at all. Why would this?

    Iowa has written the book on brushing problems under the rug. KF will work his magic, and this will all be forgotten as long as he keeps winning.

    Very little unless the NCAA does something. Which doesn't seem likely.

    5 or more losses 4 of the last 6 years isn't exactly killing it.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    This. Its a pattern.

    However, if a kid has always loved Iowa, he will go to Iowa regardless of issues. Its their best recruiting tool. ISU is a hard sway to kids raised hawkeye.

    Re: How does Iowa's Situation affect ISU recruiting?

    The bottom line is: this state is still 75% hawkeye. As long as the politicians, business leaders, media, administrators, teachers, coaches, grandparents, parents, teammates, friends, etc. are hawk fans...stuff like this will not have much influence. I am not talking about some huge conspiracy. It is simply human nature. Nobody wants to talk about their problems. I would much rather hash out someone else's issues than mine. It is just basic numbers. There was a lot more publicity and outcry when ISU tried to hire a counselor to HELP their student athletes than there ever will be about transgressions at iowa.

    Agreed. This will have zero impact.


    "I'm proud to lead this program and this team in whatever we do.

    Don't tell Iowa fans that. They still think they have one of the most successful teams in the nation. Just ask 'em.

    Re: How does Iowa's Situation affect ISU recruiting?

    Probably won't affect ISU recruiting whatsoever. People were thinking the same way after Iowa had like 20-some players arrested in a year, that it would have a big affect and help ISU head-to-head. It had no measurable affect whatsoever. Neither will this.

    Re: How does Iowa's Situation affect ISU recruiting?

    I think it could affect it one of 3 ways:

    1) It might scare some kids off, or scare their parents off, who many sway their kids away from Iowa.

    2) It may do nothing.

    3) It may make some kids want to come to Iowa more if they see their desired position now has open slots, and they want to see early playing time.

    I guess it all depends on what really happened, what, if any punishment/sanctions there will be, and what each kids' beliefs are.

    Re: How does Iowa's Situation affect ISU recruiting?

    I find this kind of funny really. I was listening to local sports radio a couple of weeks ago, maybe a month, Boers and Bernstein on Chicago 670, and one of the guys was trying to think of a college coach he'd let his kid play for. "They are all bad people" was I believe his quote. Then as he thought about it, Kirk Ferentz came to his mind as one of the good guys, a guy he would let his kid play for. I understand this is Big 10 country, but there are more than a few coaches I could think of. and to be honest, maybe Iowa just doesn't hide it very well, but I can't think of another program over the last 10 years that has had as many really bad offenses as some of the Iowa players have had. Yeah, every program has it's bad eggs for sure. But some of the stuff coming out of Iowa City has really surprised me.

    And I guess this kind of leads me to the point of the post, which is No, I don't think it will affect the Hawkeyes at all. As djcubby stated. Ferentz is just able to put a nice spin on things. Enough so that the media doesn't even see what's been going on out there. He's considered on of the good guys running a good clean program.
