    Walking on at Iowa State

    I was wondering how hard it was to walk on at iowa state or any othe d1 programs. I was talking to a guy who graduated from my high school last year and he said he is going to try to walk on at isu. I kind of laughed at him but then i thought maybe he would have a chance. Has anyone on hear ever walked on at a program or know how hard it is?

    Re: Walking on at Iowa State

    Bret Culbertson did it. But if your friend is not a kicker, he has very little chance unless he has been in contact with the coaching staff and they have invited or at least encouraged him to walk on.


    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.

    I hope you mean a "PM" or isufbcurt could be a very unhappy man.

    Re: Walking on at Iowa State

    It is easier to walk on during the winter, go thru winter conditioning and spring ball. It is not that hard if you are willing to play on the scout team and really want to play football. You may not be able to go through 2 a days if you are not in the top 105 players. But you can rejoin the team after 2 a days are over.

    Re: Walking on at Iowa State

    It is very difficult to get a spot as a walk on. One of my friends tried to walk on in 2001 and 2002 and both years they took 2 people. He is 5'8" and was 180, ran a 4.7 40, and had decent quickness. He was basically told that they would have taken him if he was over 6'0" and had the same skills. It also helps to have prior contact with the coaches or to know a couple of football players that can put a good word in for you.

    He will probably only tell you about how much he loves Dan McCarney.

    Re: Walking on at Iowa State

    I think we've been through enough coaching changes that it would be impossible to make this decision based on previous players attempts to walk on.

    I say go for it. If you don't make it, you don't make it. But if you don't try you'll never know if you would have or not. Never live with regret.

    Shawn Moorhead I believe.


    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'
