    Raridon sounds like a Pokemon name.

    His dad played at Nebraska. I don't know why Iowa is included in the list though.

    My son goes to Valley. He says Rairdon is ND's to lose. If they offer supposedly he will commit. I guess he already has an OU offer in hand.

    I am assuming because his dad went to Nebraska--and Iowa puts out NFL linemen.

    Another reason to get more Cyclones drafted the next couple of years.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    I just don't understand the affinity with Notre Dame in this day and age.. Sure they fell *** first into the title game a couple years ago but the last 2 decades have been awful by "blue blood" standards. I'm not saying he should choose ISU or that is the only logical choice. Just think it's crazy if he is Notre Dame's to lose this early in the recruiting process where many other big names are sure to call.

    Oh and Bobby Elliot can kiss my *** and stay the hell out of recruiting the state of Iowa.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    That's not true. I'm very good friends with him, and I've discussed this with him personally and he still has no idea.

    Yeah, why on Earth would a top OL prospect consider Iowa?

    You guys really are football geniuses, aren't you?

    Re: Chances of landing Raridon

    In football i would go to a blue blood. In basketball i could change the direction of iowa state. Huge difference between sports.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I go to Valley with him and he's said on multiple occasions that all he's waiting for is an offer from ND. From what he's said, it has a lot less to do with the actual product being put on the field there, and more with what being a Notre Dame football player does for your professional career outside of football. His dad is very strongly steering him that way as he believes if you're good enough to be a pro, they'll find you no matter what team your on.
    Actually Iowa State's best bet is the new basketball coach at Valley, BJ Windhorst. Even though he's a Drake alum, he's really been talking with John about the pros and cons of each place, and with the same "they'll find you anywhere" mentality, talks to him more about how picking a school should be based on whether you think you fit there and enjoy your time rather than what the name on the diploma will do.
