    Coaches get the opportunity to focus on the future now (2015 & 2016 classes). That's a good thing.

    Re: Cooke update

    No doubt it's a good thing, but with the quality Fred is bringing in transfer season is a nice distraction after the season and before football really gets going.

    Re: Cooke update

    I found it odd that he was going back to OSU after Dayton visit. I thought that they would be out by now. However, when I looked up their schedule, they don't have finals until June 9-13. That would suck.

    Re: Cooke update

    Remember when we had one scholarship avaliable and we all thought it was between Vaughn and Cunningham. Then we ended up with three scholarships and got three players (assuming we get Cooke) that no one had any idea about at the time.

    The lesson here: Fred is awesome

    I just question if recruiting transfers is the right way.

    CW mentioned he has a golf outing this afternoon. That makes Cooke's commitment pretty solid for a mid-afternoon announcement!

    Re: Cooke update

    FWIW, Cooke's dad recently started following Morris, Niang, Long, and Abdelmassih. From what I can tell, he's not following anyone from either St. Joe's or Dayton. Just one more piece to the puzzle.

    That was Fred's entire recruiting pitch: Come to ISU, our finals are done sooner.

    If you read the Hawks, all that matters is if the talent is good. No consideration for how good the coach is, or if the talent pieces actually fit the puzzle. THey do not understand the whole idea of synergy, that by combining all the right pieces together is greater than the sum of the individual pieces. They do not understand that they do not have synergy, all because the coaching piece for them is less than desireable.

    OSU is on the quarter system so although their finals are later compared to ISU's spring semester, they have them more often.

    Fred's utilizing an NBA-type approach to recruiting, style of play, game management, etc. Fran is utilizing a mid-major approach. The results speak for themselves.

    I'm all for Hawk-bashing, but can you explain what makes you think Fran's is a "mid-major approach"?

    When I think of historically good mid-major teams (Wichita State, UNI, Butler, etc.) I think more grinding it out, solid with the ball, good defensive teams...which is not what Iowa was at all.
