    Iowa State gave him an offer? Think of where we would be if he played here.....

    System quarterback. He's going to get crushed by defenses next season. They'll be able to gameplan against him better now. Write it down, they'll regret giving him the Heisman because of how bad he's going to look next year.

    And had you listened to your mother and worn those Pull-Ups like she suggested, you wouldn't have ruined your blue jeans. I believe you owe her an apology.

    You'll wear them until you learn.

    Iowa State would have more wins if it recruited more highly ranked recruits, of that I am pretty sure. Where were you talking people down about the Lazard commit? His stars don't matter....

    Re: For those worried about recruiting stars....

    Serious question, would he have played much this year if he came here? Rhoads said it was clear Richardson was a better passer than the other two, but didn't play due to lack of experience. So I don't think we would've seen him until next year.

    I sure as hope we would have seen him. If not I question Rhoads and the whole staff.

    Yeah but member that one guy we offered and he was just a 2 star? And member how he scored that TD and HIS team went to a warm weather bowl? Just think where we'd be if he had gotten HIM.

    So you can take your statistics and figger out the odds of one pooping himself when confronted once again with air tight scientific proof - not that godless that ignores the force of god - but the good old fact based CREATIONIST type science...

    So yeah. Dude.....
