    Oh my. What a terrible thing. Kind of makes you put all this FB stuff in perspective.

    Re: ISU Football Recruit Shot Dead

    The rumor is going about that Norman Griffith had committed to Iowa State only hours before his death (elsewhere in these forums). If so, we've lost one of our own, a young warrior who had chosen to become a Cyclone.

    If the rumor is false, it nevertheless appears that Norman was giving us serious consideration.

    Which one of our assistants would have been the lead recruiter of Norman? If the essence of successful recruiting is building relationships, this has to be a hard blow for our guy also. I'm thinking of our staff right now, too.

    Were the mods here willing to organize and order it, I'd pledge money to contribute to a Cardinal & Gold flowers arrangement. I'd like to send my sentiments to the family.

    Whatever monies collected beyond the cost of the flower arrangement could be sent to the charity/memorial of the family's choice.

    If he had committed to us as reported, we lost one of our own. If he had not committed and we had offered him, it would be a fine gesture from we Cyclones nonetheless.

    Re: ISU Football Recruit Shot Dead

    I had to read the comments. Is it just me or are there a ton of idiots in Florida? I don't think I've ever seen one post like that in Iowa.

    Re: ISU Football Recruit Shot Dead

    Thanks for the link Dinger.

    That is sad. Too often, I have to admit, it seems alot of times these kids - well let's just say it isn't always shocking. Too macho, put themselves in bad situations.

    But it would seem that the kid did everything right - and still ended up on the losing end of the deal.

    When will our society learn? A factor in the investigation might be he was wearing school colors? Unbelievable! That's worth killing somebody?

    Ummm... I second what dinger said about those comments. Unless you like extremely racist people, I wouldn't check those out.
