    Visiting Recruits

    Any news on how the recruiting visits went? It sure helped that we won.

    Re: Visiting Recruits

    Sure didn't help that we booed the team into the locker room. I kept thinking about how those JUCO visitors probably made up their mind by halftime.

    Probably didn't help, but what the hell were we doing out there tonight?

    Listening over the radio was awful. I have to think it was worse in the stands - like watching a train wreck.

    Re: Visiting Recruits

    A win is a win is a win. Suck is suck as in suck. Anyone ready for Shreveport? The one thing we have going for us is Nebraska fell apart at home and easily could have lost. KSU lost to Baylor. Winless Colorado lost. Missouri was unimpressive. Kanas looked the best in the North considering they were on the road.

    The North is beyond mediocre this year. As far as I'm concerned, just about anybody could take it just like the last few years.

    Re: Visiting Recruits

    Well the good thing is that the 2 big juco recruits were defensive players. They probably said to themselves "I'll definately start for this team next year". They know theyll get some PT here.

    Re: Visiting Recruits

    The discussion and expectations of our fan base concerns me.

    Since when do depend on the rest of the Big 12 North being weak to enable us a chance to win some games? In my mind, hoping for weak competition is unacceptable. Why are ISU fans ok with this?

    Why are we satisfied with last second wins against teams like Toledo, UNLV, and UNI?

    Why are we ok with "learning opportunities" even though past learning experiences don't result in improvements?

    Going forward, would playing in a consistently bad conference and playing out of conference teams like Wartburg or Upper Iowa be acceptable as long as we win? I sure hope not. This is sad.

    When will the fan base wake up and expect well coached and executed football? I remain surprised by the ease to satisfy our fan base. I think it tends to lead to more of the same.

    The fan posting on CyFanatic are the only one willing to accept mediocrity. Over on Cyclone Report the uproar is very loud. Can we fire Mac now or do we have to wait until the season is over?

    I don't think anyone is happy with last night's performance. We're not satisfied with the win, where the hell did you get that idea?
