    I bet he's not making much money anymore now that the games these days have the option to download the rosters from other players fo' free.

    Re: Former ISU student making money off of Video Games

    This guy has a horrible reputation within the NCAA rosters community, when several other roster creators offering theirs for free (or a price that'll cover the memory card). To add on top of that, he's stolen those free rosters in many cases, and turned around to sell them for a profit.

    Re: Former ISU student making money off of Video Games

    The owner of this business originally asked to use my xbox to make the rosters the first summer he did this. I can't believe he has profited, let alone grown his business. I will give him credit though. He is an idea man. He was always looking for a way to make a buck, even if it meant he gave you 20-1 odds on Madden because he knew he could beat you 19 times and break even. For the record, he flunked out of Iowa after one semester due to gambling on and playing too much NCAA football and Madden football. Never kid yourself, he is a hawk fan through and through.

    I am kind of ****** that his competitors accepted the buyout.

    Re: Former ISU student making money off of Video Games

    I remember it was proven that he stole his rosters from someone else a few years back. This guy is breaking NCAA rules by profiting off of college player's names.

    People need to get these rosters for free from the appropriate places. It's easy enough to do now on the 360 and PS3.

    How does he keep getting press. My god.

    Like everyone else said, he is a cancer to the NCAA gaming community.

    Annoying hawk fan, all I will say about him, even though I could say worse.

    Re: Former ISU student making money off of Video Games

    how the hell does he spend 70GRRR a year on this? His "costs" must be actual gambling loses like a previous poster said.

    I love the rosters I downloaded on my PS3 this year, and it was free. They might not be 100% perfect, but close enough.

    He spends a lot on advertising. I know he was spending a couple of grand on advertising in the first year alone just to get his name to the top of google's page rank.

    Alright, at the risk of sounding stupid - how did you download the rosters?

    Thanks
