    Yup! Agree 100%. Easy comparison/example: Kyle Washington - Yahoo! Sports. Kyle Washington went to Brewster Academy and our "connection" didn't help. He was recruited hard by ISU but is going to North Carolina State next year.

    Yep, very exemplary of why Vaughn going to Brewster is not good for ISU's chances.

    Re: Rashad Vaughn

    There is some thought that we backed off Washington because of impermissible contact that came out in the report.

    Re: Rashad Vaughn

    Vaughn could end up out East/West for HS, get homesick, and hate it for all we know. It's probably a great experience for him to get out of Minnesota for a year to try it out and see if he likes being that far away from home. If he doesn't like it, he can always play closer to home in college.

    Sometimes you gotta dump your special lady, move to Las Vegas for a year, and experiment with drugs & sex to find out how much she really means to you. (Note: Not RV specific, just mostly advice for any youngsters reading this)

    complete B.S. , the calls in question were from 2008 to 2011 and in basketball case, involved Lefty Moore (Peter Jok) and Daniyal Robinson (Gmac's staff)

    While I agree that Vaughn staying in the TCs is likely better for us than him at Brewster, and that many schools have the same or better connections to Brewster as we do...

    if he's definitely going prep, Brewster is likely better for us than say Huntington, or Findlay.

    Re: Rashad Vaughn

    Rashad Vaughn is killing me with this suspense of the unknown. Not really a whole lot to think about. A state school's a state school's a state school. What should matter to him at this point is style of play, proximity to home, and campus life/community. A couple buddies of mine won't stop letting me hear about how ISU stands no greater chance of getting him than they did hometown hero, Harrison Barnes. They don't see how he would go anywhere that isn't a blue blood program, and I have a running bet with them that he WILL NOT go to North Carolina. So basically it's the field v.s. UNC, but obviously I want him in cardinal and gold.

    Re: Rashad Vaughn

    I still think we stand a very good chance of capturing a pledge from him soon!

    Re: Rashad Vaughn

    UNC just got a commitment from Theo Pinson. This could have an effect on where Vaughn wants to go.
