    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    Good for him. I always quetioned the statement that said the new coaching staff told hiim to look elsewhere. From the beginning Pollard stated that all current recruits will have the scholarships honored. I think maybe it was more of a mutual decision by both parties that he should maybe look at other options; as opposed to how others made it sound as though he was flat out not wanted and wasnt allowed to come here.

    I wouldn't be so sure of that. A poster on another board who seemed to have more knowledge about the situation (personal knowledge, a friend of the family) said that Tanner really wanted to be a Cyclone and had been told to look elsewhere by Chizik and Company.

    I don't know what the status of any scholarship offer to Tanner was before McCarney "resigned", so not sure how Pollard's statement may have applied.

    Maybe there were academic issues that Chizik was concerned about.

    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    I think that may be the only loop hold is where exactly does Tanner's status stand before the resignition. I am not sure on that either. I felt that he was a verbal commit and thus his scholarshiped would have been honored, but details that I am sure I dont know probably discredit this prdiction.

    Anyway, its not a decision that I need to make nor worry about. I am sure as you stated, that there was a legitamate reason for such a comment or action apon the staff if indeed those actions hold true.

    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    I am the guy with all Damilyns inside info and Damilyn WAS very excited to be a cyclone because he was offered by McCarney and staff.. He had his sights set high and was ready to play football up in Ames. However on a Sunday afternoon Damilyn recieved a Voice Mail from coach Rodgers that he should look elsewhere because ISU is full at the cornerback position. End of Message, and to Damilyns dismay would be the last he ever heard from ISU. About a week after, Damilyn got a call from Utah asking him if he wanted a visit on January 19th and the rest is history

    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    According to Scout Tanner only had 2 offers. A 4 star with only 2 offers indicates there must be some problem - probably academics. His Scout bio states he is planning to obtain his AA degree in the summer of 2007. GC probably didn't want to spend a scholarship on a guy that he wouldn't know if he was eligible until the end of the summer.

    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    It's not like we have a ton of people lined up for the secondary. What I saw of the secondary leftovers from last year - we need a lot more help. Do we have more than 16 committed yet less than two weeks from signing day. Still strange and when I see a secondary commit about 190 and runs 4.72 has a scholarship out of the blue from Florida over a known quantity four star. I say hmmm. The jury will be out on this one for as year.

    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    schools that really showed interest to Damilyn Were ISU, IMMEDIATLY... we were after Tanner since day one with the McCarney staff, according to Damilyn, which is why he was so interested in coming to ISU also Before Damilyn was injured this year Auburn showed interest, Arizona State, Syracuse, and of course Utah.

    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    It's hard to think ISU would turn down a legit 4 star, there has to be a reason for Chizek to tell the kid to take a hike. I admit, leaving a message on his voice mail to tell him the news sounds a little tacky.

    Re: Damilyn Tanner to Utah

    the reason he didnt get recruited more is because he was a juco, and jucos are win/lose.. and most teams dont need jucos that bad


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
