    Where I live there are actually businesses that create these tapes for HS kids for a fee...they even help develop a marketing strategy for the kid.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Thats nice. Do you always have to get your little jabs in.

    I don't get it. I think I'm missing something?

    Wow...a "jab"...just stating a fact of how today's HS kids that are not "hot prospects" take an active role in marketing themselves to schools. I know kids that have paid for these marketing programs. You are just a tad sensitive (as are many on this site) over young Eikmeier. Get a life!

    Re: Eikmeier article

    Do the professional tapes have choice music with the video?

    If someone were to take, say, the old NBA highlight video where Jordan's background is 'Take My Breath Away' (which was a tad lame) or Charles Barkley's with 'The Warrior' (you know Scandal? Yes, I'm damn old).

    However, with today's technology, maybe these businesses are using this footage and just super-imposing or whatever the young kids face over Chuck's ugly mug. Oh well, the short shorts and grainy video would be a dead giveaway.

    I thought it was a jab at Wes being from a small town and doing stuff the old way. From your past posts about him I guess I just figured that is where you were going. My fault for misreading your post.
