    Too bad Pelle couldn't make it...

    Sorry I am still far too excited after being in Hilton last night, I just figured in order to be a true Fanatic I needed to find something to complain about...this is all I could come up with. How great would last nights atmosphere have been for him to experience?

    Yeah it is too bad he couldn't see Hilton like that. Hopefully his family issues get resolved soon and he can come out and visit. I would love to have him.

    I'm not worried about it. Pelle was well aware of what happened last night.

    I agree. But being there last night was special.

    I think missing the game experience and hearing the actual crowd were the biggest thing that was missed. It is hard to really see this even with watching the game on tv.

    I understand this. It would have been cool to have him there, but 5 star high school kids care about being on winning teams. Iowa State is a winning team. Would it have helped? Yes. But Iowa State is a winning enough team to get him no matter if he was there or not.

    Hilton is one of our big selling points. Maybe not the biggest, as that is Hoiberg himself, but it's a pretty big deal for our recruits. It would have been very nice for him to see the excitement in the building and the comradery that goes with a team winning a big game.

    It's true, but being at an atmosphere like Hilton was last night in person is an intangible. A big one sometimes. Kids like being the center of attention. Look at Baylor. They are a winning program of late, but their fan support and loudness at games is fairly pathetic in contrast.

    Winning is winning, but it's more fun when you are actually having fun and the fans love you. I'm fairly certain any recruit like that would love to play for a crowd of 14,000+ fans rocking versus a crowd of the same size who is only kind of loud and into the game, but not greatly.

    Go back to the football game where we beat OK State. Didn't a few of those guys almost immediately commit to us because they saw what kind of atmosphere JTS can be when we're doing well?

    I kept checking his twitter after he said he wasnt coming.....didnt have anything on there to give a hint of what happened.....but he certainly seemed ok from his tweets.

    Hopefully he reschedules soon.

    On a positive note, what recruits were at the game?

    That's because the odds are that there was no "family emergency" and rather he just decided he didn't want to visit. Hopefully that's way off, but that's where my money would lay.

    Check out the recruit list thread.
    Vaughn, a big-time recruit for 2014 and top-target, was there. Rashad Lindsey also.
