    Re: Bellamy and Martin not coming

    Bellamy was a WR and Martin was a DE... both were supposed to be good and contributors...

    Re: Bellamy and Martin not coming

    god ******. Bellamy is a huge, huge loss. Don't know much about Taylor Martin. I hope it wasn't an academic issue---not passing JuCo classes is embarassing.

    WR doesn't concern me much. Any defensive warm body is needed.

    Re: Bellamy and Martin not coming

    Bellamy sounded like a great player, but receiver is by far our deepest position. Of the guys who didn't make it, Jackson is the biggest loss, and it's not even close.

    Is there ANY school out there that has had the JUCO failure rate we have? How the hell did Snyder build a program off of it? It seems like half of the good JUCO players we recruit never show up...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Bellamy and Martin not coming

    CPR did not go into much detail as to why any of the four (Bellamy, Martin, Mims, and Jackson) are not attending except for Jackson who is pursuing a baseball career.

    Re: Bellamy and Martin not coming

    Not unexpected...but a downer. Mims and Jackson were greater long-term losses imo, but it would have been nice to see if Bellamy and Reynolds together could have given ISU that big play ability at WR. Imo Martin would have been a depth guy this year, probably 15-20 snaps...his no-show hurts more next year.
    I would rank the hurt as:
    1.) Jackson
    2.) Mims
    3.) Bellamy
    4.) Martin

    Use your imagination. I am sure it involved things that would get ISU on probation.

    Princeton Jackson was projected at LB

    Brandon Mims was an ATH that was projected somewhere on defense
