    ISU Recruiting in FL Article

    This paper has the best ISU articles anywhere: Navigating Florida: A tale of recruiting and chicken livers | TheGazette


    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."
    -- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

    Robs a good guy. Went to ISU same as me and ran the same circles. He's a good journalist.


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    “I take Interstate 75 all the way up, take the turn to Tallahassee,” said Burnham, one of the reasons the Cyclones signed more Sunshine State-based recruits in the class of 2013 (nine) than any other BCS program outside Florida.
    That's pretty surprising to the point that I have a hard time believing it since the proximity of other teams in the SEC or the ACC to Florida.

    Its true, Orlando Sentinal did a story showing how many floridians are at each school. WVU was close. Other SEC schools have the same talent Iin state per capita and not much other instate competition to compete with (and alabama gets the best everywhere). Florida had a ton of schools plus everyone else cherrypicking.

    I believe so. Hard to remember cause there was a lot of adult beverages consumed in those days.

    Re: ISU Recruiting in FL Article

    the gazette's cyclone reporting has really picked up this year. Though not all articles make it to the front page of the web site.

    Iowa State Cyclones | TheGazette

    You can navigate to the cyclones section on their site to get access to them.

    I believe this is the first year Gray has been doing the Cyclone stuff. He has done a great job leading up to kick off

    Doesn't that make it an even 10 in the 2013 class as well?


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    It's nice to read positive coverage of the Cyclones in the eastern part of the state. It's a good article.
