    Why is Penn State outrecruiting ISU?

    All that has happened to the Penn State football program aside, despite all that, and even with the rumors of a possible death penalty by the NCAA, Penn State is still having the kind of recruiting season we would only dream of having. SEVEN four-star recruits, and no recruits with less than 3 stars.

    Just shows you how football and money will always overshadow ethics, morals, and even children being raped by a staff member.

    The great players from that area want to go to PSU. Pitt isn't even on their radar.

    penn st is very powerful, their football program will never be banned. Ncaa will just issue a few harmless sanction and it will end there. Even if they paid all the victims millions of dollars, their alumni is so big that it will be a drop in the ocean.

    I reaalllly hope the NCAA grows a pair and gives PSU the death penalty.

    Too bad there's no way it'll happen.

    Consider their audience. For decades, PSU was the dominant Eastern football program in all of NY, NJ, PA and other NE States. Joe Pa walked on water. The NY Times and other Eastern papers splashed his name and the Nittany Lions all over the pages and not just the sports pages.

    PSU must be taking big time hits over this junk. Other schools may benefit from fans switching loyalties and viewerships.

    We just don't have the audience, following, huge alumni base, geographic placement and prestige. That's why I love ISU. We are unique in so many ways. Our fans are rabid because they are alums and friends and the loyal. When we win, it's a big deal. When PSU wins, it is expected. I'll take ISU all day long.

    Yeah, I can't get over the fact USC still has better recruits than us after the Reggie Bush scandal either.

    +1. Great comments and well put. We are BLESSED to be ISU and we are BLESSED for the things that we don't have e.g. PSU.

    Re: Why is Penn State outrecruiting ISU?

    Well, they are the #1 school in a large population state that produces 10x the amount of D1 players. Not to mention that they have a huge following throughout the entire NE such as New Jersey, etc.

    They have won national championships. They have been to BCS games fairly recently.

    Frankly, even if they get the death penalty, they're first year back in recruiting will go better than ours.
