    Fennelly: "This is a hard place to recruit to"

    Heard him say this on the post-game presser tonight. I appreciate his honesty, and wonder if any other coaches of our women's teams, like CJL, etc. share this view. Also wonder if any men's coaches agree.

    After all, we force them to wear Uggs.

    Definitely hard to argue especially when you start talking about recruiting against teams 'above our level' with advantages that will always be there no matter how high you elevate the program (ie: stanford)

    I don't think CFH would agree. It's taken him 3 seasons to make Ames, IA a destination for top-flight transfers and 4+ (fingers crossed) star HS players. Couldn't ask for much more.

    Id say its harder in WBB than in MBB though. Hoiberg can play the pro angle here a lot more.

    Agree, but the OP did ask the question.

    Doesn't women's BB also have a higher scholarship limit? Makes it harder to recruit away from the top schools when there aren't enough good players to go around.

    According to the CF Scholarship Chart(tm) they both get 13.

    Location wise it's not ideal, but once you get them here and especially to a game at hilton I don't see why anyone would pass on ISU for basketball.

    It might very well be Fennelly's coaching style. Not saying he is a bad coach but he is tough. They win far too much for recruiting to be too difficult.

    If Rhoads said anything remotely similar he'd be gutted like a fish on this board... despite the fact that it is no less true for him than it is for Bill.

    I just wanted to point that out for those who weren't keeping score at home.

    WBB gets more. I believe 15. Fennelly doesn't use all the scholarships he could.

    Despite the chart, WBB gets 15.

    If rhoads said it now yeah he might get some flak. Itd come off badly. If he said it after a success level comparative to the level Fennelly has had, he'd be fine.

    If Bill thinks its tough filling 13 scholarships, I'd hate to see what he would do with 85! Getting a bit off topic here..I think Bill is a great coach, but I really don't buy his beef for WBB.
