    Thank you ISU

    I guess by now anyone who cares knows that James has decided to leave ISU. And I do mean JAMES decided. First of all let me brag about the maturity he displayed in making this tough decision to leave a great school and the Big 12. Our family will miss the great people we met in Iowa, but friendships will be there after football is over. James is a competitor and wanted to play now so I guess he thought the best thing would be to transfer now to a small school. Tiffin University just brought in a new coach from New Mexico University to turn their program around, which has not been very sucessful lately. They do not give full scholarships but the coach went to the President and said James could be a program changer so the President authorized a full ride. We also met with the President, which is very unusual. No- Tiffin isn't ISU, which makes James' decision even more impressive. He could have stayed at ISU and bragged that he is in the D-1, Big 12 or go to a small school and play. They run the exact offense we ran in H.S. "Air Raid" so James should pick it up pretty quick. Anyway my point is that we are thankful to ISU for giving James the opportunity to be a part of a great program with great fans and coaches. We have no complaints about anyone. I apologize if I offended anyone by posting on here; especially Cydude16. I'm sorry-just a proud Dad. I would like to still follow ISU if that is okay. I wish the best to all the players and the fans. We love you all. So as much as it hurts, we must say goodbye. Hope to be watching ISU on New Year's Day. Good luck and God Bless. Tom Capello

    Glad to hear that James is happy with his decision.

    Your posts are nice.
    I would probably delete the phone #, though. It's public Internet, and anything could happen with that in your post.


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

    Good Luck to your sons and all I can say is that this was an extremely classy post by a very proud dad! James made a very mature decision and one that obviously makes sense when he wants to play right away.

    Good luck to James! Selfishly, I would have liked to see him stay, but I can completely understand the decision he made.

    And I appreciate your posts on this board. It's not easy being a family member and reading some of things that are written.

    Re: Thank you ISU

    Just want to say that James did things the right way. He competed hard and gave it his best shot. I can understand his wish to be a starting QB and it appeared that at ISU that it would be an uphill struggle.

    He stuck it out through spring ball. He finished up the school year. And James leaves on good terms. For any others out there, James did his transfer the RIGHT way. Phil Bates, did you hear that???
