    #6 South Florida-I State recruiting virtually identical..

    Checking Rivals.com, South Florida and Iowa State's recruiting ranking is virtually identical since 2004. The question is, how are they ranked #6? Same goes with Boise State and many other successful schools. It seems to me, ranking doesn't mean much, it's what you know about the players you recruit, how they fit your system and how you develope them. I hope Coach Chizik is the man to do the same for Iowa State.I believe he is. Point is: IT CAN BE DONE.

    Re: #6 South Florida-I State recruiting virtually identical..

    Rankings tend to be a little skewd by the region a player is in. How many times has Iowa State gotten a 2 star out of Texas or Florida that basically walked into camp and earned a position? More than a couple, that is for sure. There are a lot more good players in Florida than Iowa, and they are playing against better players than the guys in Iowa. Why do you think every team has coaches spending tons of time recruiting Texas and Florida?

    The answer is OBVIOUS. Now if people can be honest with themselves, or not, is another question.

    Re: #6 South Florida-I State recruiting virtually identical..

    They were not ranked until Dan Mac got there. So if I was Danny I would take full credit.

    Oh yeah and Morningside almost beat us a few years ago So he did a good job as a coordinator. Wait he was not a basketball coach. That ruins that logic.

    Oh yea and one other thing. Like the poster above said. "we are Iowa State and they are not."

    It shows that good coaches are good coaches. And, unfortunately for Iowa State, good coaches, with no support, can't win. Conversely, bad coaches can have every team in his division become bad all at once, get more support than any coach ever at Iowa State, and still never win a big game (besides Iowa of course).

    I thought they finished last year ranked... I could be wrong...

    When Levitt started at USF the first year was practice only... Then they were non scholly D-1 (Drake), then 1-AA (UNI), then I beleive they were in the Sun Belt before joining the big east...

    Recruiting grades/stars don't mean crap. Look at the "great" class Iowa had in 05 and how awful they are now.

    Talented recruits are nice, but it's all about developing them once they are on campus. If you are playing on a D1 team you have talent-it's the coaches that can develop talented players that have success

    Jim Levitt was a K-state guy before he went to South Florida too.

    Dude, you need to get your facts straight. Leavitt had stops between Morningside and USF. In fact, he was a grad asst at Iowa for a year. There he met Bill Snyder. Snyder got the job at K-State and took Leavitt with him. Leavitt was involved in getting the moribund K-State program to national prominence. USF decided to add a FB program in the mid 90s and they decided to hire Leavitt because he had experience in program building with Snyder at K-State. That is the chronology of events.

    PS: All of these recruiting "rankings" are developed by a bunch of "jock sniffers" that couldn't play themselves and are, frankly, not really worth much.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
