    Mike Blakely

    Just looking through my tweets, Josh Newberg tweeted that ISU was one of 10-11 teams that Florida would release him to. That list could get bigger. I have no idea what that means but some others were the smaller FL schools and Clemson. I have to wonder why ISU would be on that list. I don't know how that list gets populated.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    It should also be noted that he was high school teammates with Quenton Bundrage and Quinton Pompey.

    Pick some tiny, local schools you don't play, along with a couple of ok bigger schools you don't play but don't think anyone would want to go to(us). then toss in a bone (clemson) to show you aren't being really mean to the kid

    I thought someone said he was going to JUCO and then taking a check from Auburn?

    Or, the fact that we signed 2 of his high school teammates already and they are probably friends, and that is probably the real reason. ISU fans that belittle ISU need to grow a pair.

    Is that a guess or do you know that for sure? Just curious.

    Re: Mike Blakely

    It's a release to play immediately without sitting a year, yes?

    I would think he'd still have to sit a year regardless. The release just prevents him from going anywhere else in the SEC.

    He would redshirt this year and then he wants to play immediately in a spread system.

    If he hasn't enrolled, doesn't that change things?
