    Omaha/Council Bluffs recruiting outing?

    Back when McCarney was coach at ISU, he (or one of his assistants) would hold an outreach event for Cyclone fans in the Omaha area, usually right after Signing Day to discuss football recruiting. This stopped when he-who-shall-not-be-named was hired, and it was never resumed. Has anyone from the Omaha-area alumni association ever disccussed with the ISU athletic department about resuming these? I miss these outreach events.

    JP, under pressure from the head coaches, dropped the "outings" of which you refer. The prior AD's had started them and Orr/Walton made them a happening event. I was involved from a local organizational side. They usually scheduled 19/21 of these , statewide, and depending upon the amount of money generated - the site would or would not be on the schedule the following year. The head football and basketball coaches (Fenelly particularly) hated these things as they were required to attend every other one. Not very much money was generated in the big picture and when JP came in, the coaches took the opportunity to say enough all ready. The format now of holding a few around the State in the metropolitan areas (does Iowa have any of these?) is better time and money spent.

    The Omaha-Council Bluffs Cyclone Club is in the process of trying to put something together with the coaching staff. If we are successful it will be posted.

    Swiacy is right the number spring outings has been cut and the role of the local clubs greatly deemphasized. However, the Omaha-Council Bluffs Cyclone club has continued to have recruiting outings. We expect to have one this year.
