    Take this for what it's worth, but...

    ...we are beating Iowa on Scout.com in football recruiting. We're at 50th and they are at 56. I know 50 is not the highest sounding, but I mean we DID bring Chizik in to help in the recruiting department and even though on the field we have owned iowa in recent years - I cannot remember the last time we had a better recruiting class than them. Granted there is still a ways to go, but very uplifting to see nonetheless. GO STATE!!!

    Re: Take this for what it's worth, but...

    I could care less...show me how we are doing compared to the Big 12. I would rather win games in the Big 12 than beat Iowa. There are eight teams ahead of us in the Big 12 in recruiting, and thats an area that needs to improve if we want to be competitive in conference.

    Take 2005 for example...I would of gladly traded an Iowa win for a Baylor win, or any other game we lost in conference that year!

    Hey, I'd take us beating the Squawks in intramural shuffleboard, frisbee golf, whatever. What really matters is that we improve <i>our</i> ranking every year. Mean Gene con dooo eet!

    Just trying to point out that we need to get away from the "as long as we do better then the Hawks" mentality.

    Personally, I love reading about recruits, but stars and rankings mean squat. Let's see if they show up and make our team better.

    Re: Take this for what it's worth, but...

    Kansas' recruiting class was 78th last year, and look where they're now, they were behind us. So this probably doesn't mean a whole lot..


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    Thanks for the information. This can only be a positive thing. Hopefully we can take control of the state of Iowa and then build from there in the other states. This was not an "at least we are better than Iowa" post. It is a post showing that things are hopefully moving in a positive direction. Some of you need to relax a little bit.
