    Anybody else hate wisconsin basketball recruiting?

    I was thinking about it the other day about how annoyed I am about them getting all of the big man recruits I always wanted us to have. In 2007 They got Jon Leuer Keaton Nankivil 2008 Jared Bergen Ian Markolf they also got jason bohanon but I realize morgan didnt really go after him 2010 Most likely they will get 5 Star Evan Anderson And Even in 2008 L.A. Pomlee wants to go there even with all the other bigs they keep getting. I cant believe we couldnt even get one of these guys. Maybe the tide will turn in a couple of years

    More power to them. Don't hate them at all. We need to step up and show players a reason to believe in ISU.

    Re: Anybody else hate wisconsin basketball recruiting?

    Yeah, not only that, but they are after Rodney Williams Jr, and are almost surely getting Jamil Wilson. Oh yeah, they were high on Royce White's list until they pulled his offer. It's like us, Minnesota, and Wisconsin go after the same recruits every year, and Wisconsin gets 75%, Minnesota 15%, and us 10. I wonder why we are always after the same players?

    No. Sour grapes is, "All those guys going to Wisconsin suck anyway. We didn't want them." What wheels has is jealousy. And frankly so do I, Wisconsin appears to have an abundance of qualilty post players where as we will probally be a bit thin there next year.

    Re: Anybody else hate wisconsin basketball recruiting?

    It's an interesting discussion...because Wisconsin isn't necc. targeting the cream of the crop nationally, yet they have been one of the most successful programs nationally during the Bo Ryan era.

    It comes down to coaching and the system. Iowa and Iowa State find themselves bumping into the Wisky on the trails. Gonna have to start getting some of those players.

    I posted it with spaces and paragraphs, but when I posted it, it got all mushed it all together and I could't figure out how to fix it. Sorry

    Thanks Jon, I agree Bo Ryan and Mcdermott go after the same kind of players and now Iowa is as well. Just kinda sucks that we keep losing out all of these battles with them

    Your more right, I am jealous of them getting all of the recruits we go after but more of it is I am frustrated that we couldnt get one of them and that 5 star Evan Anderson will most likely be going there. Be nice to win a recruiting battle with them for once

    Bo addressed this very point during an interview yesterday on a national radio network (believe it was on ESPN). He targets guys with whom he can deal with only the player, the family, and the coach. He refuses to get involved with guys that he described as needing to go through 15 different layers of involved parties.

    Re: Anybody else hate wisconsin basketball recruiting?

    As much as I hate Wisconsin, being from MN, I have to respect Bo Ryan. The guy is one of the best coaches in the country and does more with less than anyone in the country. I am not surprised so many players want to play for him. If ISU starts winning people will want to come play for GMac, give it some time.

    I respect Bo Ryan as well, I just hate that we loose every recruiting battle to him. One day the tide will turn

    We need to become consistent winners to recruit better. Same for football. Winning means a lot to the kids. And our fans do not want to wait a decade any more for winning teams.
