    Ames Trib article re: Ruempolhamer

    MODS: Please feel free to delete/merge this thread if it is old news, but.....

    The Ames Tribune/Mid-Iowa News/GoCyclones.com has an article today claiming that DT Stephen Ruempolhamer committed to ISU over the weekend.

    It sounds like there's a lot of potential there.

    Of course, "potential" can often be a 4-letter word.

    I'll pretend that I didn't read that Ruempolhamer played club football in Europe.

    Well Ruempolhamer is certainly near the top of my favorite student-athlete names assuming he sticks around. There are times I would kill to be the PA address announcer...

    Here's hoping it's not Lucca part deux with his past club involvement. Shouldn't be but I've learned not to be optimistic about the NCAA.

    However, both seem excited to be Cyclones, Mahoney in particular.

    Does he play American football or the football the rest of the world plays? Lets hope the staff didnt get confused on that.

    They'll be disappointed when their "fullback" comes in at 5-10 165 lbs.

    So, Ruempolhamer's actually a senior?

    Re: Ames Trib article re: Ruempolhamer

    He is very athletic," Union coach Kirk Fridrich said. "He has a huge upside. His best football is ahead of him. He's barely scratched the surface on what he can do."

    I wonder how many more cliches he can get in his quote.

    Re: Ames Trib article re: Ruempolhamer

    I think the "club" part is because in Europe there are no school teams. There are just club teams from towns that compete against each other. Similar to baseball or hockey at Iowa State.

    I know, I was going on the light side. It always amazes me to think that at 6-4 215, Oguchi Onyewu is an absolute monster on the pitch.
