    ISU out of the Big 12?

    Well I see this article on ESPN and think to myself "cool a different perspective on Big 12 recruiting needs". I open in the article and see that all 11 teams in the Big 12 have a write up. I did a quick double take. After I counted the schools and double checked the article it became clear that ISU is no longer in the Big 12. Actually I believe Mr. Low (sports writer extrodinare, not math major) neglected to included ISU in his write up. take a look for yourself:

    ESPN - Big 12 team-by-team recruiting needs - Insider

    Man this sort of thing tends to tick me off, this apparent lack of respect is irritating.

    His email address is "espnclow@aol.com"

    So this columnist for ESPN doesn't even merit an ESPN Domain email address? I think they forgot the "n" at the end of his email address.

    I think he is implying we have no recruiting needs and are perfect ; )

    I emailed him and nicely reminded him that the XII stands for 12.

    maybe our needs are too many to fit in such a small space?

    Big 10 = 11. True.

    Big 12 = 11. False.

    Just so everyone knows, i just hit the link and ISU has a report....

    Could have expected this....um infusion of talent across the board and with the losses of Bowen, need playmakers on offense to help aa and arob.....

    Re: ISU out of the Big 12?

    There is a writeup now, must have been updated.

    Iowa State Cyclones
    Iowa State's needs are diverse to say the least. Gene Chizik needs a talent upgrade across the board. A few more playmakers on offense would help QB Austen Arnaud and running back Alexander Robinson. Linebacker is also a big need, especially with the loss of Alvin Bowen. Another obvious need is an infusion of athletes to play on special teams and help the team's overall depth.

    Re: ISU out of the Big 12?

    You know he just wrote that quickly after the onslaught of emails he received. Probably found a 2007 review or look ahead on some site like CFN or something to find names of our players.
