    The 3 Young Guns from Minnesota

    The Pioneer Press in MSP has a very nice article about the 3 young guns in the Twin Cities.
    Vaughn, Jones, and Travis. Nothing to earth shattering but good. On the front page.

    Looks like RV wants to be a vet.

    Re: The 3 Young Guns from Minnesota

    Thanks for posting! Interesting comment from Vaughn...

    "But the last one to commit, if he doesn't go to the U, he'd have to commit where he could get out of here," Vaughn said, "because (fans) are going to try to kill us or something."

    On his next visit, we need to feature signs about the Vet School. Inside info like that can help us make signs that won't be taken away. The security guys won't even know what they mean, except the ones who read CF.

    I actually think that's a hilarious sign idea anyways. Something that reads "We have a top notch Vet School" or "Our engineering program is better than yours" or something along those lines.

    that website won't let me read the story. Oh well, any of those guys that are smart will prefer ISU over freefalling gophers.

    . He'll be in the NBA long before he'd graduate from vet school. It's a moot point regarding the quality of our vet program.

    Unfortunately, U of M also has a top notch Vet Med program. In fact, in most cases it is listed slightly above ISU's. So, not really an advantage for ISU.

    But the fact we both have excellent programs makes us on par with U of M...and then you add in Hoiball and the scales tip in our favor.

    I can dream, can't I?

    Re: The 3 Young Guns from Minnesota

    I was not saying ISU was out of it.......it was just that some were acting like U of M did not even have a program, and it turns out they have a very good one. Minnesota is a top 10 program, ISU is a top 15, so there is not that much difference. If a student is a serious vet med student, I would think the location of the National Animal Disease Center in Ames would be interesting too.

    I think ISU does have a chance with Vaughn and Travis. I could see the possibility of those 2, along with Travis' teammate, Jarvis Johnson (2015 ISU offer) all coming to ISU. They all know each other pretty well. Plus, Jarvis' sister Seanna is coming here next year to play for BF. If that goes well that could help too.

    The way MN looked yesterday vs. the hawks, can't imagine Vaughn wanting to play there.
