    Wow..ISU recruiting sounding better all the time...

    I know I wear rose colored glasses, but another huge high school offensive line prospect may be coming to Iowa State, and more on the way. Chizik is being very quiet in his recruiting, but you have to get excited about what he is going after. Size and speed...not reputation or number of stars. It's a long ways till football season,but I'm getting fired up. Anyone else feeling pretty good about what they are seeing, or is it just me?

    Wonder if we will get 6-8, 325, Big Bubba Beans from Desert, Texas, who plays in Class 1, and is a monster. He motors at 4.88 and wears a beard. We could use a good place kicker. Just kidding. Eight more days and we will know if the sky is fallign. The main thing about the recruits is they are faster than previous Clonites as a group. Now if they can only tackle and block, the stars will not count.

    Chizik has no choice but to be quiet about his recruiting, that's an NCAA rule and with no one in the state's largest media market not covering ISU recruiting, or Iowa for that matter, it's pretty easy to fly under the radar screen.

    I'm not ready to go dancing in the street yet. We will know in a week on signing day if he pulled off any minor miracles.

    Re: Wow..ISU recruiting sounding better all the time...

    Every year at this time I'm excited and optimistic about our newest group. I grew tired of Mac's spin on "diamonds in the rough" so we'll see how Chiz and his staff present their newest class. In any event I can't wait for spring football!

    I'm betting they will play it low key and won't proclaim the "best recruiting class ever". I got tired of the yearly hype. Benjay, get ready to dance in the street, ya gotta believe!

    Re: Wow..ISU recruiting sounding better all the time...

    I'm thinking if they have that February recruiting party at Third Base again this year that it will be packed. They always had a couple of the assistants there and it was nice to see a little film on the entire class and have a Q & A period.

    Re: Wow..ISU recruiting sounding better all the time...

    How many transfers from SFA will be used to fill this class? Maybe I am completely wrong, but I am guessing that there will be 4-5 guys that will transfer and be imediately eligible. This is assuming that GC doesn't somehow pull some major surprises. It will be fun to see what happens.

    I'm pretty sure that if we got any transfers from SFA they would have to sit out a year just like any other transfer to a D1 school.

    I thought SFA was a D1AA school same as UNI.

    Even if it is, I think if you transfer UP divisions you have to sit a year.
