    Chris, any news on our Cedar Falls commit?

    I'm hearing the Iowa staff is in CF today to meet with Hill. I assumed since we hadn't heard anything in a while that he was going to stay committed. He still out shopping around?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Maybe they are trying to exploit the TH news. Don't let them sell you a pack of lies Barkley.

    Just because we have a bunch of backs on the roster, don't let that sway you. Look how many backs we have used this year and how much time Woody got in the second half of the season. We still need you!!

    Iowa Just offered a Sophmore Lineman at Cf as well so they could be there for him.

    Conversation with Hill and Rhoads...
    Hill "I hear Herman left for OSU"
    Rhoads "Yes he did but any OC will be better than Ken O'Keefe"
    Hill "At least you were up-front, where do I sign"

    Re: Chris, any news on our Cedar Falls commit?

    I hate how our fans automatically think we have to beg and plead for one of our recruits not to leave us because Iowa is recruiting them. Iowa (at least to me) doesn't have the image of the overly superior program over us like they used to (especially to Iowa High School players).

    Secondly, Hill is committed to us..he should be "ALL IN"..if he is not, then he isn't the player that ISU has been building their team around. Having said that, I do think that Hill is "ALL IN" and I think he fits in perfectly with the ISU Family. He will be a great player for us during his career here.

    I wish people will stop freaking out about this. Barkley Hill has come out and said he is still a solid verbal to ISU. People that are telling you otherwise are either misinformed or Hawk fans trying to get under your skin.

    You're wrong. Iowa does have the image to most high schoolers as the overly superior school within this state. Look at this year, we beat them, go 6-6 and the Pinstripe bowl. They go 7-5 and head to Arizona to play a nationally ranked Oklahoma team who many thought would be in the NC game going into the season. If you were to ask most kids in HS, who have no set allegiance to either team, what program is better, or had the better year, the answer would be Iowa 90% of the time. It's not the way I wish it would be, but it's the facts.

    Also, those kids have watched Iowa win:

    An Orange Bowl
    An Outback Bowl
    An Insight Bowl over nationally ranked Missouri

    No matter how much we want to be perceived on a level playing field with Iowa, it just isn't the case at this juncture. Maybe in the next 5-10 years it will be the case, but not right now.

    Yes you are right about all of those things and I do agree in 5-10 years (if we can keep most of our staff together) it will be a different story. However, I was making a point about IOWA high school kids. There is a reason why we pretty much cleaned up the state of Iowa as far as recruits go this year. Example: Collin Bevins, parents are diehard Hawk fans, yet still commits to ISU. That goes to the changing culture that Rhoads is responsable for.

    The only reason Bevins is comong here is because he didn't have an Iowa offer. When Iowa finally did offer, they were just trying to do him a favor because big time programs wait for Iowa to offer a kid so they know he's for real.

    Even in my attempt to troll, I can't make it sound as dumb as the post several people had as their sig.

    6-6 in the Big 12 is like 7-5 in the Big 10.

    I get the trolling part, but the first sentence might be legit. If Iowa had offered before ISU he may very well be a Hawk. But they didn't, and he isn't, so speculation is pointless.

    I'm lost.
