    Would like to see CFH and staff recruit state of Texas more

    I know Kansas does and OSU does it really well but you would think ISU could go into Texas and get a great player down there once in awhile!!

    I was thinking the same thing tonight. As bad as attendance is for the Texas teams, as good as ours is, and as often as we play in Texas, you'd think we could attract some good Texas players.

    They could recruit Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan and I'd be satisfied.

    Exactly. There's plenty of talent in the Upper Midwest that's much more amenable to attending school in Ames, IA that we don't have to compete with southern schools for. Our formula seems to be working fine.

    When you are only taking 3 or 4 kids a year, I don't think it is important like football to have a pipeline. Go get the talent wherever it is. Take advantage of talent close to you and you're halfway there.

    Much easier to recruit from similar climates - heck, the Canadian guys come to ISU because it's like a freakin' heat wave.

    I'm fine with how things are going now - but rest assured, if there's a big name in TX and Fred wants him, he'll be wearing the Cardinal and Gold...

    We need to follow the GMac model.

    Re: Would like to see CFH and staff recruit state of Texas more

    Recruiting Texas is probably difficult to do without someone that has relationships down there and I'm not sure we have that on our current staff.

    I agree though, we could probably benefit from a presence in that market with all of our exposure to that area.

    The climate is a challenge, but isn't always the determining factor, and those recruits might be willing to take that trade off for the fact that at ISU we support and attend our MBB games/teams.
