    He's an Illini as well. Zook has taken two of Iowa's recruits this weekend. Fun stuff.

    Re: Ellington

    Isnt that where his cuz' Supo Sanni went to?

    Do we blame the kids or the recruiting services that publish the kids every move for stuff like this? Dont these kids get benefits as soon as they verbally commit? Like training help, videos, etc? How ****** would you be if you're a coach that helped him get better and gave him a bunch of info about your training?

    I think I'm beginning to understand what women mean when they say a man can't handle a commitment.

    Re: Ellington

    Is Ellington going for Quincy Morgan's record? Didn't he commit to Baylor, then us before getting recruited away by Bill the Snake Snyder?

    If Zooker can lock down the Illinois borders, the Illini are going to have a very competitive team for a long time.

    Re: Ellington

    I told people last year that Zooks was building something special but nobody listened. I think he's a great recruiter and Illinois is a very attractive local for recruits. I think Iowa is going to have a lot more competition from Illinois and Indiana in the future than they'd ever thought possible.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    This is very true! The only saving grace Iowa has vs Illinois is that Zook will be on the Illinois sidelines on game day! And if you don't think that makes a difference throw in a tape of the Iowa - Illinois game from this season! He might get all the talent...and in the Big Ten that will mean a lot! But he does some of the strangest things on game day! Sometimes that helps them win (OSU) but sometimes it helps them lose games they should win (Iowa)!

    Re: Ellington

    It's no wonder Kirk is not denying interest in the Michigan job. With his recruiting woes in Illinois (the Zook effect) and stiff competition from Wisconsin (the Bielma effect), he may see the writing on the wall. Kirk would win and win bigger at Michigan than he could ever do at Iowa. Makes sense to at least consider it.

    No, I think his silence on the subject is what's causing a lot of unease with the recruits. The rumors and then him not saying anything publicly about it is a great recruiting tool for wonderfully ethical guys like the Zooker.

    Would Ferentz fit with this title since he took a verbal from Ellington after he verballed to ISU?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    How dare you try to question a hawkeye's ethics!!!

    I think that his silence indicates he is thinking about this opportunity more than we think. Of course Les Miles has to turn the job down first, but I think KF may be gone if Les turns it down.
