    if you guys want to win the instate battle

    you need to offer AJ Derby and Andre Dawson. They are the gems of the Iowa Class of '10 and are great football players.

    Oh, BTW, why do some of you guys call Iowa EIU? I know it stands for Eastern Iowa University, but why do you call them that?

    Go figure, the gems of the class as told to us by a hawk fan are the guys that are leaning towards the hawks.

    As far as EIU, they are in Eastern Iowa, yes? They are an university, yes? But I then ask you, why is Iowa State referred to as the clowns on hawkeye boards. It's all the same.

    THey are the gems of the class for the state because they are the only 4 stars per rivals as of right now.

    Re: if you guys want to win the instate battle

    why would our staff waste any time at all on these guys who have ZERO intrest in ISU?

    in-state i would rather focus on Scherff, Hoch, and others who we have a legit shot at.


    ALL IN

    Great, and they're only 3 stars on scout. That doesn't mean there are more guys out there that haven't been ranked yet. Those rankings are based a lot on who's going after them. If a coach was smart he'd try and keep anyone he's after off the radar at this point. Way too early to go off on who's got the stars behind their names.

    I think mostly because Iowa State is the state of Iowa's university (it being a land grant u.) and UI is mostly for Chicago suburbanites and people from eastern Iowa. The "E" conotes proximity to Chicago. There is also the notion that schools with directional names are lesser programs i.e. Eastern Michigan, Northern Colorado, Western Illinios etc. (all state schools).

    Before you get off a UNI blast or bring up USC or Northwestern note that the former has been discussed ad nauseum and the latter two are private schools which chose directional names when they could've chosen surnames as Stanford, Rice, Vanderbilt etc. did.

    Re: if you guys want to win the instate battle

    Derby has offers from Alabama, Florida State, and Florida and will surely get more as time goes on. Why would a kid who lives in IC and has that growing offer list even consider ISU? Frankly, unless he has a man crush on Kirk Ferentz, I'll be suprised if he ends up at EIU.

    As for Dawson, good Washington kids have a history of either going to EIU or out of state, like Adrian Arrington.

    In state recruting will change, just give it time...

    Re: if you guys want to win the instate battle

    Andre Dawson is up for the hall of fame and should probably get in... in my opinion. He was a pretty feared hitter in his day. Huge gun from right field too....

    oh wait.... wrong guy, who is this Andre Dawson you speak of?

    Re: if you guys want to win the instate battle

    Derby's dad also played for the Hawks. I'd be the equivalent of Harrison Barnes going to the Hawks - absolutely shocking and any phone call from Lick to him is likely a waste of time.
