    KF Future and recruiting - you'll love this one...

    I heard this weekend from a good friend who is Black and Gold through and through....He told me over a beverage that if "Captain Kirk" shuns Michigan to stay at Iowa that will send a message and suddenly get all these high powered top notch recruits to want to go to Iowa.....

    WHY??????

    EIU fans make me laugh.......too funny.........by the way, same friend that told me how awesome Christiansen was going to be.......i've had a lot of fun with those comments this season!!!!!!!!!

    enjoy the laughter.............

    I have seen the same thing mentioned on Iowa boards about it being a great recruiting tool

    Re: KF Future and recruiting - you'll love this one...

    Yep, this so-called "recruiting tool" seems to be working so well when EICC seems to be having recruits de-commit left and right (just look at the many different threads in the In-State Rivals forum...)

    Re: KF Future and recruiting - you'll love this one...

    A lot of Iowa fans are trying to find good out of something bad here. I don't think you could find a fan base that after a season like this wouldn't try to spin any bad new positively.

    ISU fans claim Chizik is the savior of the program, even though he's won 3 games (and one of those was against a "crappy Iowa team" as we are so often reminded).

    Nebraska fans fire a coach ever few years in an attempt to restore Osborne's dynasty.

    Ohio State didn't pay Maurice Clarrette that much money.

    Heck, these are just off the top of my head. I mean, fan bases find excuses all the time. ISU fans do the exact same thing. But, alas, when Iowa fans do it, LOOK OUT! They're being positive, which they shouldn't have anything to be positive about, so they are ignorant and have no idea what they're talking about!

    "ISU fans claim Chizik is the savior of the program"

    Really? I know we hope he is but I know of no such claims.

    Ferrentz was the "savior"of the progam and he won 1 game in his first year.

    How do any of the other situations you mentioned have anything to do with Iowa fans thinking that Kirkie getting a so far unconfirmed offer from Michigan will help recruiting? To me that idea is just a text book example of EIU delusional thinking.

    Wait, no he wasn't. Iowa fans were ****** when Ferentz was hired instead of Stoops, especially after Stoops won a NC and Iowa was struggling.

    My point was that in situations like this, every fan base deludes themselves into turning negatives into positives. ISU fans have done it, Iowa fans do it, everybody does it. I actually find it funny that people find a fan base being positive "pathetic" - funny.

    We will have to agree to disagree. I find nothing wrong with finding the positive in things. I don't see the statement in question as being positive, I just find it pathetic. My brain just isn't wired I guess to think that a job offer to another school = better recruiting.

    Heh, well I don't either. I guess I just don't see it as sad as everybody else. I just see it as a sign of a fan base desperate for any sort of good news.
