    If he truly is 97%, then we should feel really, really good. It doesn't mean that there is no need to worry when he visits other schools, but there is no need to freak out every time he tweets and doesn't do the #cyclONEnation hashtag.

    Look at it this way, he visited ND with several other highly targeted guys. He had a great time and liked the school. He came home and a few weeks later was convincing other recruit to play at Iowa STate over Michigan STate.
    This comment is going the right direction. Here goes all in drinking the coolaid. I say he is using the 97% as a lever to meet other high profile recruits and convert them to Cyclones. He is just taking trips to see good games and bring more payers to ISU!

    Re: Lazard puts a percentage number on his commitment to ISU

    If you're worried after his 97% number, then you're really just a worrier. That's OK, but it indicates that there really isn't a number that would satisfy you.

    Even if he came out with 100%, people prone to worry would still worry about the effect of taking visits. Nothing wrong with that, but it makes discussion of "97%" kind of interesting.

    I don't know... if you are giving less than 110% are you really even trying these days?

    Takes a lot of nerve to question a man's effort on the Internet. A whole lot of nerve.

    If he'd have said 98% I would sleep at night. Now I just toss and turn over that additional 1% of uncertainty. I'm sure that will come back to haunt us.






























    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    No kidding. I hate Notre Dame, but if saying I was 97% got me a free ticket to one of their games, guess where I'd be going that weekend.

    I don't even want to know why you were looking that up.

    Guess I haven't seen that episode. I was hoping you weren't using Yahoo Answers as a good source for such an important personal problem!

    Man, he seems like such a fine young man. Really seems to have it together. Would have been nice to hear 98% though.

    Stop scaring the college kids, Linden...they don't need to be worrying about Lazard backing out AND whether they got that girl pregnant because they didn't.

    Re: Lazard puts a percentage number on his commitment to ISU

    I'm glad he went with 97.

    98, 99, 100, and 110 are way over used

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
