    Andre Dawson, RB, CR Wash
    Matt Hoch, DL, Harlan
    AJ Derby, ATH, IC City


    Droppin' 3's like my name is Scotty C.

    Brandon Scherff from here in Denison could be a big pick up. I don't know if he reads these message boards or not, so won't say too much.

    He is 6'5'' 270lbs. and he was our QB to start the season, but later got moved to TE/DE. I think he led our team in receptions even tho he played 1/3 of the season at QB. Great hands.

    Also, he got first in the state in shot put last year as a sophomore.

    Would be shocked if we had a chance at any of these three. Two in Hawk country and the one from Harlan is Dan Hoch's brother I think.

    Re: 2010: In-State Recruits?

    I went to elementary school with AJ Derby, he was always the most athletic kid in school. He used to go to my high school too but he transferred to City last year and everyone was ******. Our BBall coach was especially upset because they could have had a shot to win state with him and his bro on the team. He plays QB on one of the only undefeated 4A teams in the state. But he's definitely a Hawk fan just like 99% of the people who live here.

    Well Derby's dad played for the Hawks as well, he'd be a legacy recruit.

    The bigger question is will Chizik even try to recruit them. He's barely shown token interest in fighting for the top in-state recruits so far.


    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.

    Re: 2010: In-State Recruits?

    Recruiting Iowans is all well and good, but most of the time it's a waste of time and resources if the recruit is from eastern Iowa. Secondly, there are usually 2-3 truly BCS caliber Iowa recruits each year. You cannot win in the Big 12 with a team full of Iowa kids. You gotta recruit Texas and Florida and that is what Chizik is doing. His recruiting strategy is as sound as they come.

    Let's face it, Iowa high school football is a joke.

    You have to have some Iowa flavor in there, but a top Iowa recruit is a average Texas recruit. I know he is still only a sophmore but how is Bernstine in Iowa doing? He was highly sought after recruit between us and the Hawks.

    Yeah, I'm sure Iowa regrets recruiting all those Aplington-Parkersburg players - some in the NFL (Kampman, Devries, etc.). Also Dallas Clark, Robert Gallery, etc. Seems to me that they were in the their "glory days" when they had lots of those humble, hard-working Iowa kids.

    Does that also mean that Austen Arnaud is a "joke?"

    Iowa has to be our number one priority in recruiting - Chizik himself said so on his coaches show the week before this one.

    Yes, there are diamonds in the rough, but overall it's nothing special. You can find a ton of hard working players here, but the talent level is no where near Texas and Florida.

    No, Iowa is nothing special. We have no population here.
    But remember that tons of big-time schools are recruiting Texas and Florida - last January, we ended up offering "fall-back" prospects late, after our first and second-level recruits signed elsewhere. What is going to change this year, with the way our season is going?

    Wow, just wow. I hope they are after this guy. Could be a get, unless Nebraska shows some interest. That is the big problem recruiting to ISU. Western Iowa you get a lot of Husker fans, Eastern Iowa is really Hawk territory. ISU I guess has that central corridor, Des Moines, with Valley in particular, up to Fort Dodge and Mason City.

    I really like having Iowa kids on the team contributing, but you have to be real. I don't expect GC to waste time going after probably Hawks just because they have talent. Limited resources people. Who here would trade LJ or KB for Jordan Bernstein? Gotta trust the coaches judgement for at least a couple more years folks.
