    New Recruiting Style???

    I saw this video on Yahoo, I think Iowa State University should borrow the idea to get some great recruits in: Rivals.com Football Recruiting - Beavers take recruiting to new heights
    It must be working, Oregon State has got to do mad work competing with the ducks!

    Original idea. Oregon State isn't exactly lighting the world on fire recruiting though, only 3 players higher than 3* in the last 3 seasons, including 0 this year. They are simply doing a good job of identifying players with potential higher than recruiting sites see, much like CPR.

    They also are riding high being media darlings right now, but I wouldn't be surprised if they drop 3 of these last 7 games. (@ASU, Oregon, and either @Standford or @Washington)

    How 'bout if we just keep winning more games? Always seems to work to me.

    And people wonder why there are so many recruiting rules in the NCAA. Every time someone comes up with an original idea someone else thinks they are getting an advantage and before you know it another rule is added to the book. I'm sure this will be considered an issue before long, especially if they get some recruits that big time schools are sniffing.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
