    welcome aboard James. he looks pretty good with his feet and throws a nice deep ball.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Anyone else find it ironic that Taylor McHargue is now committed to Rice?

    Re: ISU lands a QB Commitment

    i thought quarterbacks were supposed to be smart. in my book a 3.0 gpa isn't exactly brilliant but if herman thinks he's capable he probably is.

    3.0 gpa for today's kids is pretty good I think. Kids are caring less and less about their grades.

    There is a difference between being football smart and book smart.

    Football smart and book smart can be completely different.

    Re: ISU lands a QB Commitment

    Interesting that he's listed as pro-style and more of a thrower than runner. I thought we'd be going after someone more balanced under Herman.

    And who was our last skill position recruit from PA. We can see the recruiting seas turning.

    I wouldn't read too much into a high school GPA. Many students, athletes in particular, just sorta coast by.

    Apparently the kid gets it done on the football field, and he has grades good enough to get him into school. Just fine by me.

    Nice get this late in the game by PR.

    Re: ISU lands a QB Commitment

    true about different smarts, but i'm in high school and it's pretty easy to maintain a 3.5 at least. in most cases kids that have a lot of street smarts or football smarts could do really well in school if they tried. and like i said, it's pretty easy to get at least a 3.5 without studying or giving forth a lot of effort.

    Yeah, look at Peyton Manning.

    Kidding aside, we have no reason to distrust Herman. If he is confident enough in his abilities to offer him a scholarship, then I'm sure the kid will do just fine.

    Herman is Mensa smart after all.
