    This is depressing.....

    This is who we have signed the last 4 years for recruits according to rivals. If this doesn't show you why getting transfers is a GOOD thing, I don't know what ever will.

    2008

    Dominique Buckley - Transferred after 2 years
    Wes Eikemeir - Transferred after 1 year
    Justin Hamilton - Transferred after 2 years
    Clinton Mann - Transferred after 1 year
    L.A Pomlee - Transferred after 2 years
    Jamie Vanderbeeken - Solid addition

    2009

    Chris Colvin - Transferred after 1 year
    Laron Dendy - Transferred after 1 year
    Marquis Gilstrap - Eligibility gone after 1 year
    Antwon Oliver - Transferred after 1 year

    2010

    Calvin Godfrey - Kicked off the team after 1 year
    Demarcus Phillips - Transferred after a couple games
    Jordan Railey - 2 arrests so far
    Eric McKnight - Transferred after 1 year
    Melvin Ejim - One year in and has been solid

    2011

    Elgin Cook - Never made in on campus
    Anthony Odunsi - Backed out of LOI
    Tavon Sledge - Still coming!
    Tyrus McGee - Still coming!

    So out of the 19 guys we have had commit that were not transfers, only 6 still have a chance of actually making it their entire careers in Ames.

    Re: This is depressing.....

    Just the idea of 19 guys in 4 years is amazing. That takes turnover.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I actually wrote about this today....(shameless self promotion) "Attrition Condition"

    Went a little further back, but you're right, it's especially bad since 2006.

    If this were baseball we'd be happy with our hitting percentage.

    Wow, how horrible was that 2008 recruiting class!?


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: This is depressing.....

    2006 was a disaster as well. 2007 had luck with Brackins/DG, the other 4 not so much. The next big man to make it 4 years through Iowa State deserves some sort of medal. Jared Homan is the only one in recent memory.

    Dunson, 1 year
    Cory Johnson, 2 years
    Wes Johnson, 2 years
    Corey McIntosh, 1 year
    Mike Taylor, 1 year

    Why stop at 2008? It's been a mess for longer than that. For the past half dozen years or so, ISU has made basketball recruiting look more difficult than curing cancer and building a colony on Mars, combined.

    At least that class had productive players and 2 NBA talents in the group. JVB was by far the best player in that 2008 class

    True in that respect. The retention was equally as poor, though.

    Re: This is depressing.....

    How about the Vette? He drove off mid season. Clinton Mann? P-something that transferred to Creighton and was kicked off last year?

    Let's face it, anyone that plays more than one year for us is like gold.

    Yep, barely. Maybe we should give the award to Brackins, he would have made it another year. Odd's Railey makes it another 3 years? 30/1?
