    Rivals already has us written off as option

    here's the link to the rivals board that shows HB's options. We aren't even listed at the top as one of his choices and you have to expand a drop down menu to even see that ISU is still in consideration.

    http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketb...ollege_choices

    In so many ways I want to be excited for tomorrows announcement, but at the same time I think I'm just setting myself up for a let down. T- 22 hours and counting until this site either implodes or has what can only be equated to a message board group orgasm.

    please HB... prove rivals and all the other nay sayers wrong.... please

    How far will HB drop if he choses ISU?

    I would say, he would go from the #2 player (Current) down to say #12, maybe #24. That's just my guess.

    I wonder how long after the 3:10 presser that we will have to wait to get the "official" word from rivals.

    why would the college he chooses have an relevance to what his national ranking among prospects is??

    Because, there is another conspiracy theory on there that as soon as a player chooses ISU, his ranking drops.

    Honestly, I have never seen this many adult emotions so dependent on the college decision of a high schooler.

    It wouldn't.

    Not his ranking, but star value. i.e. if a player verbals to Texas, then if he was 2 star, he is then 3 star. I've never seen a guy actually drop in numeral ranking because of a school choice.

    It's been like that for awhile. It's an assumption, nothing more.

    Please split, if a #1 recruit was considering Iowa you'd have to tuck your junk up into the belt of your pants in order to avoid making those around u feel uncomfortable. Every true cyclone mbb fan has every right in the world to be extatic about this.
