    That article is fascinating! Well worth a read, but also makes me start to dread college sports. There's a reason the "blue bloods" almost always win...

    I almost seem numb to these things now. Nothing shocks me anymore. I always wondered if it has happened at Iowa State during the good years... and the only thing that would shock me is if it is happening here with Hoiberg.... I think he is to clean to be involved, but what about any of his top recruiters... Could they be doing it without his knowing? I always like to think that Iowa State is above that, and that may be the only thing that would shock me...

    Re: How to get recruits - The Bag Man

    When you look back over the timeline on RV it's hard not to see this happening on the basketball side. Same with Anthony Lee, that OSU commit happened really quick when he already had other visits scheduled. I think it's fair to say ISU probably doesn't have this kind of network, or at least if we do it's not very competent.

    If you aren't cheating you aren't trying! Although, if we are doing this we are either giving the kids food stamps or we just suck at cheating too! But as the saying goes "the rich get richer"!

    Re: How to get recruits - The Bag Man

    Sounds like we don't have enough bagmen at ISU. PM if interested.

    Awesome story, A must read!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: How to get recruits - The Bag Man

    Slimy indeed. Definitely makes you wonder if that happens here ever.

    Also, think Allan Lazard.....big time recruit...did other schools "test him" with this stuff?

    Really fascinating in the article was the idea they can basically dictate recruiting visits and can blackball a coach out.

    My hawk friends always talked about how Korie Lucious drove a brand new Dodge Challenger around campus. I've always wondered how he got that, this article made me think of that.

    Re: How to get recruits - The Bag Man

    All I saw was Rashad Vaughn written all over that especially the part where the article says you pay a recruit to not visit a different school. Remember how Rashad just all of a sudden canceled his UNC visit? And how they talk about car dealerships. Well Cliff Findlay owns a huge dealership! So easy to see.
