    James Carpenter?

    Are we out of the running now for the big fella? I see on Scout that he has half a dozen schools listed and no ISU. Might be old news that I missed, but I was just wondering.

    Re: James Carpenter?

    No, you're not wrong. It looks to me (going by the new "final list") like we lost him. That's a shame. His loss, as well as ours.

    If he's really going to Alabama then I really can't buy the whole "his loss" argument...

    The only loss on his part might be PT, as I seem to remember they've picked up quite a few 4 and 5 * linemen in the last class or two...

    But if they are looking to go Juco at that position, then they are obviously looking to improve. Or he is just that good.

    Exactly.

    Here, he would have been offered the perfect opportunity, a spot just waiting for him to excel in an emerging offense, just waiting to explode.

    Re: James Carpenter?

    We were one of 5 schools to get his visit. I haven't read anything from him that says we are out of it, but you are right that it does not look good.

    It is going to be Oklahoma that wins for him. If we could get him over Bama, OU, and TT that would be huge

    Re: James Carpenter?

    I guess our coaches shoulda tried to hide him at a lesser known juco than one in Kansas.

    Re: James Carpenter?

    that is my question, why not send him somewhere like Estherville or Iowa Falls, where no one would find him?
