    Probably can't get the grades this year to get in I would suspect.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Perhaps they have a history of abusive behavior and cell phone theft?

    Because Chizik would rather build the program with high school kids, and only recruit minimal jucos as immediate "patches".

    So would I, for that matter.

    Re: 4 Star Juco's

    You basically become a four-star juco if you see the field. Juco rankings are more of a joke than high school ratings.

    Re: 4 Star Juco's

    Look at our history of signing 4 star Jucos and you will see why.

    Re: 4 Star Juco's

    ISU needs some immediate patches. Both sides on the line need help, so do the safeties. With regard to the 'D' I would take a high school team that at least knows how to tackle right now, this is getting embarrassing.

    Why not pull up Ankeny's safeys? Couldn't be any worse.

    Re: 4 Star Juco's

    The last decent group of JUCOs we had came in 2004(Dobbins and Hicks)

    We even had a group of guys who weren't bad bad but the 2nd recruiting class freshmen have taken a number of those jobs which leaves me hopeful that we can evenutally get there...

    Re: 4 Star Juco's

    They are JUCOs for a reason. Generally, the only JUCOs worth having are the late bloomers.

    Ask Ron Prince how those JUCOs are working out.

    Re: 4 Star Juco's

    Well, Ron Prince overdosed on Jucos. I would say this team needs atleast 3-5 Jucos. I wouldn't want anymore than that but we need something to jump start us for next year. I suspect Chizik won't go down the Juco route very heavy until he gets real desperate, ala Prince.

    So did Tim Brewster. He signed 5 his first year and 7 his second year. That's about the number we should be looking for as well. We need HS recruits for the future, but 2-3 JUCO players who can step in and play offensive line and 2-3 who can step in and play defensive line in 2009 would make a big difference.

    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.
