    recruits at game?

    Anybody know who ISU had for recruits at the game and how they enjoyed their visit? I'm sure the game didn't go as everyone wanted but maybe the recruits will see that if they come here they'll have an excellent opportunity to play right away.

    I saw Zach Guyer from Johnston. But they were over by the student section, and I just saw him as I walked by.

    Hopefully they think that way. Anything is an instant upgrade.

    I was really impressed we had that many fans at the game during the beginning. You really can't blame anyone for leaving early with that kind of weather down that much. Hopefully the recruits feel the same way.

    Re: recruits at game?

    Berryman was sitting in front of us, we could introduce the recruits to him. On that topic, why is that moron showing his face at ISU games anymore?

    He's the poster child of what not to do on an ISU schollie.

    Do you really have that big of a problem with Berryman? The kid did play for us, even though he was dismissed, and he has every right to come and see the team, especially since he knows a lot of the players. I've always thought that Berryman got what he deserved, but he never seemed to be a bad person. Just a normal kid who made some dumb decisions, and rightfully paid for them.

    Agreed. Talked to the guy several times and was a really nice guy. He made some terrible choices and deserved everything he got, but he was a Cyclone and we should treat him as such. He did some exciting things and I am glad we had him while we did. I'll never forget his performance at Houston. There are a lot of kids out there that have done far worse than him. Can they still come to games?


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: recruits at game?

    I'm surprised that Berryman is still apparently at Iowa State. He really didn't transfer to some other school to play football?

    He went the NFL route and once you do that, transferring to another school is out.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: recruits at game?

    i think berryman got more than he deserved. they made an example out of him. i too talked to him a couple time (while still on the team) and he is a good guy. he is more than welcome at any and every IState game in my opinion. and if you disagree with me i will come break your car window.

    The weather wasn't intolerable. I do blame the fans who were gone before the third quarter started. That is pathetic.

    I agree, that was horrible... I was able to sit down in the student section after the half. They didn't have much to stay around for... after Texas went up 42-3 in the middle of the 3rd quarter, I had to leave early myself. First time I've ever done so.

    I just hope Chizik can get some good recruits in in light of this horrible season. I'm encouraged of the play of the young OL... maybe once we flush some of these veterans out of the system that aren't playing up to their potential, some of the guys really wanting to play can show their stuff next year.

    Yesterday was the first time I kind of compared McCarney to Chizik and how they would be doing. Everyone says that we have such bad talent, but with similar talent last year, we never even came close to taking a whipping like we did and we have almost the same schedule. We played Texas tough in Austin until Parker's personal foul penalty last year. I don't know what I'm trying to say, but yesterday's game shouldn't have gone down the way it did.
