    Re: New Commit

    I might have my questions about the size of some of the recent commitments, but Jeremy looks like far and away the best athlete so far!

    Welcome to the Cyclones, Jeremy, I'm really looking forward to seeing you play!

    If his 4.3 forty time is legit, I don't care. Our lack of speed is apparent and extremely detrimental.

    Re: New Commit

    All right, so the listed 4.30 40 on Scout suggests that he won't necessarily be a corner--but they also have him at 5'7 150.

    Re: New Commit

    With the number of corners we are recruiting...could we be switching to a 3-3-5 to combat the spread. I say we get as many fast guys out there that we can.

    It is too bad you don't recruit for us. Every time we get a commit you manage to berate them. You obviously know what we need better than the coaches.

    Doing some quick searches online he seems to have very good speed and has returned a few punts back for touchdowns this season. It seems as if the staff is targeting guys with speed and big play ability.

    I don't mind his size if he is within 20 yards of an A@M receiver. That would be a good start for Iowa State.

    Re: New Commit

    I did find that he was the season leader in his District in the long jump--24' 3". That's impressive--and athletic. IIRC, that's right around Chris Walker's(?) state record. Assuming it still is.

    Apparently you don't read very closely. What I'm curious about is why you feel a need to focus on insulting me, rather than commenting than the player? Feel free to actually disagree substantively instead of just running me down.

    I'm glad we've got such an athletic player. However, for a full time corner, I hope we can land Andrew Green. Green reminds me a little of Ter'ran Benton.

    I read your post, 3 times now. It seems to me you are still degrading this kid. In fact, by using the word midget, I'm sure you've offended more than just the recruit.

    I don't post on this site ever, but why do you post this crap you do realize anyone can read this. I bet you figured Seneca Wallace was to small to, I like this kid we could use his quickness welcome to the good guys Jeremy.

    Oh the irony. You insult a new Cyclone recruit then cry foul when someone gives it back.

    I wasn't referring to just that post. However, you might want to read the rest of my posts, even merely just in this thread, let alone those about "every other" recruit that he refers to.

    Demeaning? My ***. For major college football, a guy 5-7 150 IS a midget. Would you have preferred if I had said Smurf? The Redskins were quite proud of their Smurfs. How is that offensve?

    However, I stand by what I said. Going purely by stature, recent recruits are undersized by many standards. 5-7 150, 5-8 166, 5-11 168, and even 5-9 185 are a collection of undersized guys, a couple of them midgets by Big XII standards. Are you seriously going to disagree with me?

    For that matter, LSU's Tristan Paul, at 5-5, is a midget, too, by those same standards. Is that somehow supposed to be "offensive"?

    Okay, so some of them are fast. Still, some I have questions about. Since I'm not an insider, it's my right to have questions about them--until they are answered, either by the coaching staff, or by their play on the field.
